Slither is a highly entertaining 1970s road comedy with James Caan, Sally Kellerman, and Louise Lasser. After The Godfather, comedy must have been a nice change of pace. I was sick when I watched this, and it was perfect.
Torment teams two Swedish film legends (at least, in my mind)--Victor Sjöström and Ingmar Bergman. It's a good looking, affecting film. There are some really nice atmospheric shots and some moments of genuine suspense. At one point, thunder outside fights for the attention of a room full of young men and I am reminded of Fellini and Capra.
The overall story, with the sadistic school teacher, gets a little heavy handed now and then, but it's forgivable. I look forward…
