Any opinions about The Bad Sleep Well? If I happened to have spare 100 CZK one day... and to have the rest of films waiting to be seen really seen finally...

Oh no. ANOTHER i forgot to mention at the beginning.


The Bad Sleep Well is an amazing and excellent revenge movie.  There have only been a few times in cinema history where my heart has been filled with hate towards one character, and this is a movie that succeeds in having that effect.  It has a very interesting story, and Kurosawa tells it well.  Not to mention it all builds up to an unforgettable finale.

I would write more than four sentences.... but i just woke up.  :-[

One of the things I can recomend it picking up the Warners Noir sets and the fox film noir series. Great way to discover noirs  O0

Yeah, they have some of those in the "movie specialty" shop in the mall.  Also, they have a Humphrey Bogart set (and everybody loves him).

Maybe it's better, because you might spoil it for me. ;D But I have to wait for the 100 CZK... right now I'm virtually moneyless. Hopefully they'll still have it when I get the money.

Just as well you didn't put up the artwork for "The Big Steal" as that film really sucks.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

It has it's fans but I agree it's the weakest Mitchum movie I know.

Fox are distributing the MGM Film Noir series, included are:

The Stranger (Orson Welles only film to make money reportedly)
The Woman In The Window
A Bullet For Joey
Kansas City Confidential

Artwork here http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/content.php?contentid=64732

Some have been languishing as PD releases for year so hopefully we'll get some good prints.

I don't much care for The Stranger, and Kansas City Confidential is a weak film. I've never seen the other two, though, and I look forward to the chance to.

I already own The Stranger and I find it a passable film, Robinson is good and Welles is rather menacing but The Woman In The Window is excellent Dave  O0

Yeah, thanks, I've always wanted to compare it to Scarlet Street, which I like a lot.

Scarlet Street is great. I love Duryea's performance (though playing the same character he mostly played through out noir). The ending with Cross wondering the streets is great as well.
