    The Canterbury Tales

    ★★★★½

    Wow! I am so close to rating this 4 and a half stars for the final tale. Pasolini embellishes Chaucer's the Canterbury Tales with far more nudity, grotesquery, vulgarity, and flatulence! I was not expecting him to film the most obscene imagery from the poem and (explosively) climax his film with it. Pasolini is quickly becoming my favourite filmmaker to mix lowbrow and highbrow art.

    Hold on to your butts!

    *EDIT - I did it*

    Day of Wrath

    ★★★½

    The type of cinema to give me goosebumps with it's choir score, howling winds, and undertone of seething evil. Day of Wrath is surprisingly quiet considering it's title. And that quietness is what sets in a feeling of unease. I love films that feel cursed. Dryer seems to be good at making those.

    This is why I don't feel the need to do drugs.

    Jane Fonda is the only reason I cared for this movie. As far as missing person/P.I. plot lines go, it's run of the mill. But her dilemma of wanting control and finding it in prostitution fascinates me. She never has to feel anything when she is "acting". That's much easier than actually dealing with life.
