    ★★★

    Cool title. Cool lead actor. Cool music. Seems like a minor Rat Pack product with Sammy and Joey Bishop and Mort Sahl and Peter Lawford but no Frank or Dino. Elizabeth Montgomery was a childhood icon as BEWITCHED was on all of the time and it's difficult to buy her in this film. The story intrigued me in the first half but the plot falters in the second half and crashes to a terrible ending. Could have been better but it was an okay time.
    Next.

    Delicious. I found it a bit slow to start with but the story and the acting and the style of things totally hooked me by the end. Are we rooting for Tom? He is fascinating and handsome and clever but he's also a total weasel. Perfect ending. Movies have taught me not to go out on a boat alone with anyone, it's a death sentence.

    ★★★

    Average giallo with a plot similar to a better film, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO SOLANGE? There was that fabulous scene without dialogue, where the director cuts back and forth between an illegal abortion and a session of group sex. A certain 10 on the unpleasant scale. It was very well done. The little girl who has a big role was pretty good for a child actor in a very adult movie. I think Fabio Testi is quite the hunk to look at but his dubbed voice wasn't sexy at all.

    I loved the ending. I hated the ending. I dunno.
    Points for being different.

    I think I've had enough with all the raping this year. I think my resolution for 2017 is to go all year without having to watch anyone get raped. Does that mean no Japanese movies? No 70's movies? No Christina Lindberg? Sigh. Probably all of the above.
