    "The Ninth Configuration" (1980)
    * dir: William Peter Blatty
    * Psychodrama / Comedy / Life-Affirming Lunacy
    [ ★★★★★ / ★★★★★ ]

    "I believe in the devil alright, and you know why? Because the prick keeps doing commercials."

    Phenomenal pitch black comedic satire with a soulful bone-deep ideological ennui, full of warped and frequently combative dialogue exchanges that effortlessly ricochet between absurd, deranged and profound. Densely written while still being infinitely quotable, evocatively staged and filmed like a modern gothic…

    This movie was fantastic, but I think it says a lot about me how almost unreasonably excited I became when Jessica Harper suddenly showed up on-screen for literally one single scene.

    Nobody else in the theater seemed to notice or care though 😟😞

    Did you know that if you put gasoline in the freezer, that it turns gelatinous?

    HAVE I READ THE SOURCE MATERIAL: Yessir. It's...alright! Certainly not as fun as this adaptation, but I do enjoy the more explicit sci-fi angle of the short story.

    BEST SCENE/SEQUENCE: Gas 'em up, folks! It's bizarre, it's blackly comedic, it's existentially terrifying…
