The Getaway 4/5

First time I watched it I didn't really care for it. This 2nd time though it just clicked for me.  I should probably get onto reading the actual novel to see that mexico ending.

I assume you're talking Peckinpah, not the remake?



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

That sure is a lot. I don't think I have the strength.

Hey, I'm here at the Air France lounge at JFK! They've got all the bisque you can eat. And free Courvoisier! I might end up missing my flight . . .

Definitely talking about the Peckinpah adaptation.

Flame and Chitron - 7/10 - Another tale of WWII Resistance, this one out of Denmark. This entry delves a bit more into its protagonists' private lives than, say, Black Book or Army of Crime, but the brutal killings, double-crosses and dubious wartime morality are still front and center. This appears to be based on a true story albeit not one I'm familiar with, so I'll give the film some leeway with credibility issues. Certainly it doesn't whitewash its protagonists like Army of Crime, a major plus.

I just saw Army of Crime, I give it a 7.5/10

What do you mean about AoC "whitewashing its protagonists"? You are referring to the movie whitewashing the evils of Communism?

Wild At Heart (1990) Its got some outstanding segments interspersed with others that are just distractions and some that are borderline ridiculous.  Seems this film just strayed off the Lynch reservation a bit too far, Neo Noir meets The Wizard of OZ. On a re-watch 6/10

The Conversation (1974) - 8.2/10

I haven't seen this in what must have been decades... I believe it deserves even a higher rating due to the performances and story-crafting, yet what bothers me is the silly lower level of the story in which Caul is somewhat of a legend in his work... what's up with that?? And the technical fair with all the gadgets from various manufacturers? ??? Like it's a hobby like any other... I don't understand how these things worked in the US back then, but how was it possible/legal for a civilian to have someone else surveyed anyway??

Unless, of course, it was all but a dream.

The act of wiretapping was/is illegal. I don't know about now, but at the time the film was made it was legal to own and/or sell wiretapping equipment. You just could not legally use the devices. Of course, if there's a trade in this kind of gear the buyers/sellers are going to be using the stuff, but the philosophy that most law enforcement operates under in this country has been to get involved after a crime has occurred, not before. And the movie was made before the great tradition of government sting operations came into its own. Today one or more federal agencies might run a technical fare like the one depicted to get data on perps or potentials, or they might even entrap individuals. Most savy wiretappers, of course, would be suspicious of such a fair and steer clear, which is why that kind of fair probably wouldn't really happen today. Even at the time of the movie the scene was somewhat satirical, but believable. Such an event could have happened. Perhaps the analogy with gun ownership is helpful: it is legal to buy and sell guns, but using guns for illegal purposes will land you in jail.

I can't speak for Groggy, but he may be referring to the squeaky-clean aura that surrounds the protagonists. If the men had held any other kind of political philosophy they would have been depicted with flaws, weaknesses, etc. But because they are heroes of communism they are idealized to a level that beggars belief. In fact, watching the film the term hagiography came into my mind.

Thx, more or less what I thought.

Subpar.

On a side note, it features one of the greatest tension scene ever (the drug lab). And my second favorite car chase in film history (the car chase). And the worst ending line ever.
