10 Rillington Place-(1971) True story of John Cristie who makes John Wayne Gacy look like an unimaginative wimp. Sir Richard Attenborough and John Hurt are superb.
Ed Wood(1994) True story about the worst director in Hollywood (circa 50-60s)Johnny Depp, Martin Landau, Bill Murry and a host of marginal misfits camp it up in this hooter.
The People Vs. Larry Flynt(1996)-"If the First Amendment will protect a scumbag like me, it will protect all of you" pretty well sums up this entertaining, sometimes tragic account of Hustler mogul, Larry Flynt. You may not like what he does for a living, but you might like this movie.
Boogie Nights(1997)- Another porn feature not caught up in itself with nastiness or tawdriness. Don Cheadle, Burt Reynolds, John C. Reilly, Mark Wahlberg, Philip Seymour Hoffman and William H. Macy can act. And they are a hoot to watch!
Full Metal Jacket(1987)Knowing that Stanley Kubrick was a laborious control freak, R. Lee Ermey mesmerized. Kubrick handed the script-writing over to Ermey who set the pace for the first half of the movie. After all, Ermey lived the part 30 years before. The rest of the movie was a bit over-stylized except for some fine acting by Adam Baldwin, Mathew Modine and a much under-rated, Arliss Howard,
Diaboliques, Les(1955)Simone Signoret stars in this classic Henri Georges Clouzot thriller.
This Is Spinal Tap(1984)Sir Christorphor Guest and Michael McKean are a stitch. Had to put this movie off until I got the heavy metal out of my system.
Best In Show(2000) Not one unfunny line in this Christopher Guest romp about pet shows. Fred Willard and Eugene Levy are a riot.
Boys Don't Cry(1999) Haven't seen Hilary Swank, Chloe Sevigny, Peter Sarsgaard, and Brendon Sexton III top their performances since appearing in this true story. This is not a comfortable movie to watch.
