    Having only seen her in To Be Twenty, I finally decided to go down a Gloria Guida rabbit hole. Seems she played Lolita-type characters in several films throughout the 70's. I started with this film because I love the poster designs.

    Very similar to Appassionata and La seduzione. Carefree T & A that leads to tragedy. Somebody has to write a dissertation on this sub-genre. I'm fascinated by its approach to sex and sexual politics.

    Looking forward to checking out more…

    Gas Food Lodging

    The new Kino Lorber Blu-ray looks quite nice. Philly circa '71 is simply scrumptious looking. Shot by Isidore Mankofsky (The Muppet Movie). I love how it seems they stole a bunch of street and subway shots.

    12 years late to this party. Bad marketing kept me from seeing this film back in the day. But I finally gave it a proper watch and LOVE it! Smart, funny and beautifully directed. Wish we had more films like this these days.

    I really like Aja's films so not sure why I slept on this for 8 years. Great performances all around. Really impressed by Daniel Radcliffe's comic delivery.
