    Nichelle Nichols doesn't get the praise she deserves for her performance in this film. The scene where she presents her girls to Yaphet's crew is one of my favorite scenes ever... that's not hyperbole.

    And of course Isaac Hayes, Yaphet Kotto, Paul Harris... well, the entire cast is fantastic. Also, 1973 downtown LA imagery is fascinating. Might just be my favorite Blaxploitation film.

    A nice discovery thanks to Second Run DVD. Gorgeous B&W cinematography in the fog-laden Czech forest. Injects Western tropes in to the WW2 genre which is very interesting.

    Watched the Second Run DVD Blu-ray release.

    The last sequence is shot digitally. Yuck!

    I just wanted to inform those who care that I'm deep in development on my next film. So I'll only be logging for the time being. Not adding any info or replying to comments. But thank you for following me on this platform. It's been fun to connect with fellow film lovers. I'll be back as soon as I can.

    Support the theaters when they open! Stay safe! :)

    And no.. I didn't really watch it.

    Yes! Love it! Absolutely love it. Such an immersive, funny, disturbing and beautiful experience. Right now, it’s my fave of the year. 

    If Ari makes one more horror film of this quality level, he will be in the ranks of Carpenter, Romero, Craven etc. 

    Great article on why DP Pawel Pogorzelski had to shoot this digitally: 

    I’d love to see a 35mm print struck.
