    Always take care of your fighters.


    And, no, I did not watch DIGGSTOWN four times last night. Thanks, glitchy Letterboxd app!


    And no movie that’s given me this much joy over the last seventeen years deserves less than five stars. I find its ragged qualities, especially the janky crosscutting between Woods setting securing the $$$ and Platt baiting the locals, totally charming.

    A mixed bag. Great set pieces (especially the train robbery), and excellent performances from David Carradine, Pamela Reed, Randy Quaid and Stacy Keach. But it’s episodic and ultimately insubstantial.‬ Also, James Keach is flat-out awful as Jesse.

    Madeleine L'Engle's kid-lit classic presents obvious adaptation challenges. It's heavier on cool concepts than incident, most of the conflict is provided by an incorporeal antagonist and it's just really freaking short. For the novel to work as a conventional studio film, the narrative needs to be expanded a little, and IT should probably be given more of a tangible form (the last time I read it, I thought The Man with Red Eyes could be the movie's Darth Vader).
