Talk Radio (1988) - 6.5/10

It's an interesting and unusual enough little movie although I must say I was expecting it to be better, better written and way more explosive. Eric Bogosian does okay as the leading man but he doesn't have the charisma needed to transcend the rather mediocre script. The talk show guests are as cliched as their lines are lame, though I always appreciate Michael Wincott, even when he's overacting like here. And as the movie is derived from a play it suffocates from too much localization. I'll give it another try in some time.

Kull the Conqueror (1997) - 4/10

Like an average episode of that Hercules TV show, but entertaining on a certain level if you like the stuff.

The Big Heat (1953) - 10/10
Could be the best film noir I've seen.

Hopeaa rajan takaa (1963) - 7.5/10
An entertaining little movie.

 Night And The City (1992) not a bad remake of Jules Dassin's classic 7/10, DeNiro is good as the looser shyster lawyer turned promoter. Alan King does a good turn as a villain.

Coffee and Cigarettes (2003) - 7/10
I had seen like 2/3 of it before. Iggy Pop/Tom Waits and Alfred Molina/Steve Coogan episodes are probably my favorites.

Strike - 9/10 - Finally seen an Eisenstein film the whole way through, thanks to a film professor who gets it. I really enjoyed it, great use of imagery, double-exposure and montage, though the syntho-music score was pretty lame. Lots of obvious influence on Duck, You Sucker too.

Hamlet liikemaailmassa (1987) "Hamlet Goes Business" - 9/10
My favorite of the Aki Kaurismäki films that I've seen. The others are The Match Factory Girl, I Hired a Contract Killer, Drifting Clouds, Juha, The Man Without a Past and Lights in the Dusk. This could also be called "Hamlet Goes Film Noir". Kaurismäki's got softer in his older days,  which isn't completely a good thing.

Bushido: The Cruel Code of the Samurai (1963) - 8/10. The back of the DVD box puts it well: "350 years . . . 7 Generations . . . 7 Roles . . . 1 ACTOR." That one actor (Kinnosuke Nakamura), portraying successive descendants of an ill-used samurai family, illustrates a simple message: blind loyalty to a corrupt system is no virtue. You'd think after the first time this point is made the film would grow tedious--in fact, no: the filmmaker (Tadashi Imai) keeps coming up with new and inventive ways for each new generation of loyal retainers to get screwed (in one case, literally). It's like watching a Dr. Phibes film (or a Webster play); you have to stay with it just to see what exquisite cruelty will be next on view. Of course it's all in a good cause. Brother Imai, preaching to the choir, is out to tell us that feudalism is bad, post-WW II Japanese democracy is good, which is why there's hope for the final generation. The all-too-obvious message in no way interferes with the film's entertainment value, however. All the violence--artfully rendered in B&W and 'scope--is supported by a wonderful (Shostakovich-inspired) score. Kudos to AnimEigo for digging this one up.



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

Candyman (1992) - 2.5/10

Buah, what a bummer! The worst compilation of uninspired screenwriting, poor editing, bad acting and awful music I've seen in a long time. Cult classic? - Go tell it someone else.

There's a reason cult classics are called cult classics - very few people think they're any good.
