Bobby Loves Mangos (1998)
A cinematic break through!
Bobby Loves Mangos is a cinematic materpiece. The screenwriter, Jeremy Catalino is able create all the necessary elements of a feature length movie in an incredible 20 minutes. How he is able to develop the characters in such a short amount of time is absolutely amazing. To even speak of what the movie is about gives away too much, one has to just watch the movie and prepare themselves for the ride of their lifetime. The film is difficult to classify, it has the elements of sci-fi, mystery, as well as a thriller.
Man oh Man, I was at the edge of my seat for 3/4 of this movie. I don't know who this Jeremy Catalino person is, but he is destined for greatness. I'm going to keep my eye on him.
Alvin Purple (1973)
A classic tale of sex and alienation
A tremendous film that is an excellent example of the Ocker films that characterized Australian cinema in the early 70s. Alvin Purple is not a good looking man, in fact you could say that he is pretty ugly. Nor is he funny or a man of great character in any sense. But somehow, for reasons unknown, he is irresistible to women. He attracts women wherever he goes: on the bus, in the park, even just walking down the street.
The film contains a significant amount of sex and could be classified as a soft porn movie, but the sex is not for erotic purposes, but for comedic purpose as the audience cannot stop laughing as this awkward man who seems to know nothing about women has sex more times in a week than most people do in a lifetime.
But there is more to the movie than just comedic sex, the film is also a character piece as it shows the alienation that Alvin feels as he struggles to make his way through life. The multitude of sex that Alvin engages in contrasts his life of total isolation, as he tries to find someone that he can truly connect with.
This film is truly an original and a must for students of film. Australian Cinema has an amazing history and the Ocker Films and Alvin Purple are an instrumental part of it.
Blondie on a Budget (1940)
This relatively simple story keeps one interested by incorporating witty dialog with slap stick comedy, a true film of its time
One of the better Blondie movies, Blondie on a Budget gives one a feeling of nostalgia by being very indicative of its time. The relatively simple story keeps one interested by incorporating stupidly witty dialog with slap stick comedy, truly a great film.
