Quite simply one of the greatest films ever made.
Badlands is quite simply one of the greatest films ever made. The performances of Sissy Spacek and Martin Sheen are spot on and never has narration in a film been used as well as in this one.
The film has a haunting beauty to it and director Terrence Malick use of music is perfect.
Beautifully made and thoughtout. Badlands is the must-see film from the '70's.
The Grass Harp (1995)
Shamefully overlooked on its first release.
I was really surprised that The Grass Harp turned out to be the great film that it is. The book by Truman Capote is one of my favourites and I didn't think that it would work as a film.
It has been cast perfectly with Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie beautifully bringing to life the Talbo sister's Verena and Dolly respectively. Special mention too should be given to Walter Matthau, Jack Lemmon & Roddy McDowall. All the cast are really quite terrific.
Great attention has been made to period detail and the film has a glorious soundtrack.
Full marks to the screen writers who have adapted the spirit of Capote's novel. And last but not least to Charles Matthau for his sensitive direction. A must see film shamefully overlooked on its first release.
