    ★★★½

    It took me 20mins to realize Seyrig also played Jeanne Dielmann because I was busy watching her seduce literally everyone in this movie.

  • The Curse of the Werewolf

    The Curse of the Werewolf

    ★★★★

    Come for the werewolf, stay for the actually well-realized characters, solid make up FX, and rich photography!

    Bonus shout out to the Marquis, easily one of the nastiest Hammer villains. A joy to hate.

    Used Cars

    ★★★½

    I haven't laughed this hard in long time. There's some weird pacing, an underdeveloped character here and there, and some of the jokes just haven't aged well, but for the most part, this film is still gut-bustingly funny.

    Breakdown

    ★★★★

    Russell gets to play against type and crushes it. In the hands of a lesser performer, Jeff would be a nebbish, even unlikable protagonist. But Russell imbues his performance with a sense of desperation that defines the whole film.
    This and Red Rock West would make for an amazing JT Walsh double bill.
