    Sorry Steve, but I really enjoyed this. To think that Body Heat was Kathleen Turner's feature-film debut. What an entrance!

  • Love Is Colder Than Death

    Love Is Colder Than Death


    An extremely assured feature-film debut by Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Love Is Colder Than Death is an experimental crime saga that is sometimes marred by the distracting tendencies that usually plague first-time filmmakers. Fassbinder's theatrical background sticks out like a sore thumb and the film is often more preoccupied with paying homage to French crime dramas like Band Of Outsiders and Le Samourai than with creating its own identity (lead actor Ulli Lommel is almost a dead ringer for Alain Delon). Fassbinder's brilliant avant-garde techniques are definitely on full display though and the film contains subtle hints of the genius auteur he would eventually become.

    Punch-Drunk Love


    Punch-Drunk Love is 90 minutes of pure cringe and I loved almost every second of it.

  • Blow-Up



    An almost perfect and very specific snapshot of a city, its residents and the counterculture they created. Oh, there's also a murder plot (not that it matters much overall). Just sit back and enjoy the ride. So fucking groovy, man.
