Chinatown (1974)

The first time I caught a glimpse of Chinatown was in one of my editing classes at school. My instructor showed us several scenes out of context, hoping to draw our attention to the way editor Sam O’Steen put everything together. 429 altre parole

Albino Alligator (1996)

Much like a stage play, this violent effort was a career first for actor Kevin Spacey in that he is the film’s director.

It’s a straight forward story with a compelling twist to those involved in a hostage taking plot line with a top notch cast assembled here for the proceedings led by Matt Dillon, Gary Sinise and William Fichtner. 515 altre parole

The Things We Do For Love

I’m 46 years old and should know better than to be growing out a mid-70’s homage to Bowie haircut. I may be a million miles away from looking like the thin white duke but sometimes I get so consumed by a piece of music, a book or film that I end up manifesting my obsessions in some way. 253 altre parole


Tom Recommends: Chinatown

Film noir is a style of cinema that hasn’t been done much in recent years.  Generally taking the form of a detective story, noir elements often include morally ambiguous at best protagonists dealing with shifty characters and no one is entirely trustworthy.  846 altre parole

Barfly (1987)

Barfly is a semi-autobiographical film about the writer Charles Bukowski. The film was written by Bukowski himself and directed by French actor/director Barbet Schroeder. Barbet Schroeder made his screen debut in one of my favorite films ever, the Eric Rohmer directed short La Boulangère de Monceau (The Bakery Girl of Monceau), I’ll probably review that one here at some point. 463 altre parole
