    To Live and Die in L.A.

    ★★★½

    I never saw The French Connection. But I did see Duel and The Long Goodbye. They were both wonderful. How am I doing so far? (I also missed The Conversation and The Parallax View. But... I adored Rollercoaster.)

    Everyone is talking this as update to French Connection. Some part of me feels like this is William Friedkin seeing 80's Miami Vice and feeling maybe Michael Mann was trying to take his City Crime Americana crown and that he needs a…

    Horror of 2012 / Horror of the 2010's

    Wow... just wow. Where do I begin?

    1. The directors are those goth twin sisters who attack that completely innocent dancer for no reason whatsoever. This is a sign.

    2. Several times, I just had to ask myself: why was this called American Mary? Yeah- it's a not so clever Modification on American Psycho. Because this film has something to do with America. Don't ask me what. (Yes, after sitting through this…
