Blue Steel (1989)
This movie is great! It is a kind of feminist film because it has as the star and lead character Jamie Lee Curtis as a female police officer. The bad guy in the film is Ron Silver who plays a psychotic killer who likes to stand naked in the moonlight with his victim's blood on him among other things. Jamie Lee Curtis is great in the role but what kind of undercuts the feminist aspect of the film is the fact that she's not that great of a police officer because she is scared and breaks down and makes mistakes etc. Still it is a great believable "real person" character that I think deserved more attention and praise than it got. Ron Silver is also very good as the criminal.
Robert Duvall is a stinky actor with a smelly accent.
His acting stinks and his accent especially sucks! This guy is terrible in every role I've ever seen him in except for the Godfather. All he does is play himself! Except this time he's hiding behind a giant mustache and using a ridiculous Russian accent. I hope he retires soon. This movie would have been okay without him. I've seen this movie twice and can appreciate that it might be an interesting story but it is still a movie narrative and not completely based on facts. A movie about Stalin should be a lot more interesting but Duval just has no clue how to portray such a complex character as Stalen. He is out of his element and in over his head. They should have better explained at the beginning of the film how Stalin goes from being rejected by the army to being his hero Lenin's right hand man. I should never have given this film a second chance. Robert Duvall is just too terrible to deserve that much. He should stick to making crap like Days of Thunder and leave the real acting to real actors. Also he is bald!
