    Love Me If You Dare

    ★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Such unlikeable characters that all the one and half stars are solely due to the ending. Luckily for all mankind they are no more, they’ve ceased to exists, etc.

    Coogan's Bluff

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Coogan is a bad apple and a lousy cop who thinks the world of himself. He aims to be the next sheriff (of some backwards little town in Arizona) but that obviously will not happen unless Coogan bribes and threatens voters or kills the present sheriff. Coogan is that incompetent that by his own actions he can only bring chaos around him.

    He is also a rapist. These kind of a characters may have been role models for future law…

    After Hours

    ★★★★

    Night is the best time in the movies. And New York has the best nights ever. For Paul Hackett (Griffin Dunne), a word processor (le temps perdus ...), the night promises sex with a mysterious blonde (Rosanne Arquette), but instead it becomes a dark, twisting amok in the streets of New York. A draining watching experience, too. In the end, it is a comedy, the darkest one I've seen in a while. Nothing looks the same in the light.

    ★★★★★

    Still the best courtroom drama - that actually happens in a hot, sweaty and claustrophobic jurors’ room. Still relevant AF.
