Less than favourable, I'm afraid.
6 December 1998
A quite astonishingly pretentious piece of work. Exclusive and cliquey, it assumes a knowledge and/or understanding of Bacon's work, which to me - as a Bacon virgin - was entirely distracting and interruptive in the extreme. Overall; far too 'clever' for it's own good.

The Exorcist (1973)
A genuine golden oldy
6 December 1998
O.K., so it isn't the most scary of films any more, and maybe 'that scene' with the crucifix doesn't quite come off (no pun intended) any more, but "The Exorcist" was where all the others started. (Apart from anything else, Blatty's script - like so many that would follow - has holes the size of the Grand Canyon in it.)

Overall; whilst it may be showing its age, that doesn't detract from it being an important and ground-breaking film.
