Crop And Save
Great movie, really grasps the concept of how hard it is to end an addiction
I first saw this movie on IFC. Which is a great network by the way to see underground films. I watched this movie and was thinking it was going to be pure drama and a story line that doesn't hold water. But it really was a worth while watch. The main character is in such rough shape, and you hate to see him deny help, but no matter what you just can't hate him. His devotion to The Beatles and John Lennon is a great metaphor for his life and the helplessness he feels.
The atmosphere of the film is also great. At times, you feel like you can see what he sees, feel what he feels in some situations. This movie does not leave you wanting to know more, or disliking a loophole in the plot. There are NO loopholes (in my opinion). I have always been a fan of foreign films, especially now with movies being made so poorly in America. I really enjoy the foreign settings because I feel it can take you on a trip, and sometimes understand a different culture. This movie did all those things to me and more. Please watch this movie and if you're new to foreign films, this is a great start.
Black Christmas (1974)
Best Slasher film ever made, period
Forget Halloween, forget When a Stranger Calls, forget Friday the 13th.
Black Christmas is the best slasher film out there, and it will always be that way. Buy a copy of this movie ASAP! I recommend the older copy on DVD. I have noticed over the years of horror movies...that for older movies, a little poorer picture quality has a nice feeling and it adds more character to the movie. In any case, get this film! For anyone who simply enjoys a good horror movie, or if you are making a collection, this is an essential movie to own. I would love to just brag about this movie on and on to you, it is that good! I don't want to give anything away, the whole movie is a real treat. Olivia Hussey plays the Ultimate scared, innocent girl.
