Oh! What a Lovely War (1969)
Entertaining yet poignant anti-war film
Visually stunning, very engaging film version of a theatrical production in London and on Broadway that was billed as an "entertainment." Unconventional production; the film consists of several delicious short vignettes involving World War I that become darker as the film progresses, told through the songs of the day. Several Vietnam allegories subtly underscore this film, securing its place as one of the great anti-war films. I wish this flick was available on laser or dvd! Some day . ...
The Ballad of Cable Hogue (1970)
Lyrical and touching fable lamenting the passing of the mythic "Old West.".
If you think Sam Peckinpah only made violent films, you owe it to yourself to rent this from your video store. A lovely, lyrical, and emotionally satisfying fable about the last western hero, trying to scratch out an existence as he watches his era pass him by. Wonderful performances by Jason Robards, Stella Stevens, and David Warner; an entertaining script; all directed with a light and subtle touch - for a change - by Sam Peckinpah. Although I am a great fan of the Wild Bunch, Straw Dogs, and Major Dundee, Cable Hogue is in my opinion Peckinpah's masterpiece.
Even Ed Wood would have been embarrassed to have made this awful flick!
One of the worst films I have ever seen. Illiterate script; over the top acting; special effects that are marginally better than Flash Gordon (from the 40s - not the 70s camp film). To call this flick cheesey is a compliment. Real shame to see the likes of Patrick Stewart so wasted.
