  • The American Friend

    The American Friend


    Germany in the 70s on film, like New York City, holds a certain decrepit charm for me. Although its economy was booming there is still a grayish, dull hue. The skies seem always overcast, the ground slick with mist and rain and there's the sense of a very long post-war hangover. You'll occasionally see a very old medieval or Gothic building next to an empty lot where rubble has been removed next to brutalist architecture. Wim Wenders captures the port…

    Night of the Demon


    In ancient times,
    Hundreds of years before the dawn of history

    Weak tea from De Palma, despite all the raunch. In fact, the raunch feels like the lame yearnings of a newly divorced horny middle-aged dad.

    Graveyard Shift


    Having just got back from a trip to Maine, Stephen King's Graveyard Shift hit the spot, watched from a VHS bought from a great Portland record store- Strange Maine. One of the few King adaptations set AND filmed in Maine, it has a lot of integrity for a dumb, schlocky movie about killer rats. It's also filmed in real textile mills, one shuttered and one that was working at the time. It's great on atmosphere and local flavor, has Brad…
