Touch of Evil

Period Piece

(Edit) 26/02/2018

If you are an aficionado of the cinema, this period piece will appeal to you.

Non-afionados seeking an evening's entertainment may be less impressed. The story is creaky - what sane man. let alone a capable policeman, would leave a lovely young wife alone in an isolated crummy motel in Mexico, save to dispose of her? It is also formulaic, although it may have been the origin of the formula. And the great Orson Welles as a jaundiced police officer was not a patch on Tommy Lee Jones (No Country For Old Men).

All will appreciate the truly striking Marlene Dietrich. Otherwise not great.

The Producers

A Romp

(Edit) 26/02/2018

Not for snowflakes.

A rompant farce, disrespectful to everything it touches. Huge fun. Great acting by Zero Mostel, Gene Wilder and particularly by a scuttle-helmeted Kenneth Mars as Hitler's last remaining fan.

Splendid in concept and execution. It should be compulsory viewing for all who take themselves too seriously. With luck they would suffer terminal meltdown.

The Raid

More Martial than Arts

(Edit) 06/04/2017

Showcase for some very impressive martial arts, great if that is what you like.

Not great if your tastes are more cerebral.

Review by RP is a good summary

2/5.

Spirit of the Beehive

Did Not Appeal

(Edit) 06/04/2017

Generally depressing, unhappy people, poverty, subsistence living

Sinister threat hanging over two small girls. Not pleasant.

Gave up after 30 minutes.

1/5
