LITTLE BIG MAN - T.H.
I'll vouch for Streets of Fire, but it's not for everyone. I personally love it, but it is very much worth seeing at the very least.

By teacher of his youth you mean Goffredo Petrassi? If that is the case, what is so strange about it? Have you any idea about who Petrassi was?

Yes it was Petrassi. I don?t mean it in a strange way at all. I am just stating some of my takeaways from the movie. How a distinguished and accomplished composer in his 80?s was still trying to live up to what his teacher would approve, and still felt that connection after all these years. I did not mean that negatively at all.

Re-watched it, this time with subtitles and confirm my 8/10. Yes, Stanwick could have been a better Vienna than Crawford (any actress could have been better than the ugly Joan) but though she is impeccable as to acting is still too old for the part (but when she is dragged by the stirrup by the runaway horse during the storm apparently she did without a double. Also a great stunt by the guy falling from the window).  There's also the gunbarrel shot like in the Bond movies: I wonder whether this one was the first ever.

I saw the movie on TCM.

So Ennio was deeply emotional, still heavily admires the teacher of his youth, and (if not his entire life, for much of it) was somewhat embarrassed that his career was as a film composer

Yes. Isn't that the only one?

A truly remarkable piece of moviemaking. Can't believe I had never seen it until now.

I haven't seen it yet.

Sharky's Machine (1981) Tarantino gave me the heads up to this one and I wonder why i had missed it all of this time. Anyway, it starts off with an over the top action sequence, then it dozes off for about an hour (a 20' cut would have been in order) until Reynolds is captured and tortured: from then till the end the action and tension are very good and they make me give this a full 7/10. Silva is excellent as the killer, a pity he is made up as a drug fiend: he doesn't need it, his face is enough to give you the creeps. Gassman is useless, anybody could have played the part. Durning is funny to watch with a 40 lbs less of his usual weight. Keith looks very old. Ward is very attractive but "good whores" on the screen are not convincing.
