The Death of Stalin was quite entertaining, though had few laugh out loud moments. Its employment of strong British accents is a little bizarre and suits the schoolboy banter running throughout the film. I'm not sure it had much of a point, though. It's a bit short in the satire department.

man been having a bunch of great sleazy fun. yesterday watched New York Ripper and Manhattan Baby by Fulci. hadn't seen MB because I'd always heard bad things about it! but I thought it ruled! loved it, despite the plot being a task to follow. nothing like I was expecting, almost always a good thing.

earlier today I watched Contamination by Cozzi.. awesome Goblin soundtrack. i listened to it afterwards and now i really need that album.. the film is like a more bonkers low budget version of Alien. sort of like if Alien was directed by Bava instead of Scott.

and now i just finished Jesus Franco's Justine. for a DeSade adaption by Franco it was rather tame and slow-paced but it is a great story told well. spiffy looking set designs and camerawork.. and women, all to be expected in his strongest work. enjoyed it, a very 'successful' film for Franco- and i love many his of 'unsuccessful' films as well. felt little like a Pasolini movie.. on a side note, i found out yesterday that my nifty Jess Franco encylocpedia(vol 1) by Stephen Thrower is going for around $300 right now! never really expected that when i coughed up a rough $40 for it.

I could fill pages with how much working on this film has meant to me — long story short, I consider it a high point in my career and am lucky to have been a part of it. I’m posting it here on the PRF because aside from the (admittedly biased) opinion that the movie kicks ass:

- A few music cues that I suggested actually made it into the finished film, from bands I wouldn’t have known about were it not for this forum (Bitch Magnet, Comsat Angels)

- It was never intended, but it could be read as a thematic adaptation of the Shellac tune “Riding Bikes”

Whoa, watched this a few weeks ago and I really enjoyed this movie. Awesome it has a link to the PRF. Nicely done!

Just watched Event Horizon. Paul WS Anderson delivers as usual. Made me EXTREMELY uncomfortable. There's something about the far reaches of space that sends Lovecraftian chills through me. Probably not the best thing to watch before bedtime.

Just got done watching, and about every other year or so, Shane - one of the best westerns ever made.
Great story, great acting, and of course some of the best cinematography, for which it won the Academy Award. Beautiful scenery, ugly violence - what a combo !

Void is the most beautiful word in the English language. Sounds precisely like what it describes. Just saying. Will watch the movie.

If you've seen the Fulci film The Beyond, keep it in the back of your mind should you see The Void.

There have been mixed-reviews on The Void but it's still on my must-see list.

Watched this the other night, also really enjoyed it! It nailed suburban teenage life in the 90's better than any movie I've seen -- the relentless boredom, scrambled porn, ghostridin' the bike, smoking your older brother's weed. There's a kind of inexplicable darkness to suburbs that it also captures really well, and dives into.

I also watched Lady Bird and The Florida Project recently. Both were great.
