Going to Pieces: The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film
8 months ago via Flixster
½

A nice overview of the phenomenon that swept the genre in the late 70's to the end of the 80's. I gave it a re-watch after purchasing it recently, and it's filled with some decent behind the scenes interviews with the stars and directors, including a few from the more obscure titles that you might not expect like 'He Knows You're Alone' and things like that.

Well worth a look for genre fans.

The Bullet Train (Shinkansen daibakuha)

I went into this film expecting the normal run of the mill Sonny Chiba film, with lots of karate and ass kicking, but I instead got a disaster film in which my badass lead plays a tense train conductor and it just wasn't what I was looking for.

Worth a look if you know what you're getting into I suppose, as it's not a BAD movie, it just wasn't what I wanted.

Leda (À double tour)

Checking another Claude Chabrol off the list, this one was very engaging and a real beauty to look at. A fun story of a crazy family and the ensuing murder that happens in their neighborhood, this one is well worth tracking down.

Rental!

Dead Man's Shoes

This is a really well-made film centered on the revenge of a soldier, taken against a gang of thugs who wronged his mentally challenged brother while he was away with military service. The small-town 'gang' are almost laughably pathetic in most situations, which makes the idea that they've somehow worked themselves up to hurt someone all the more maddening and leads the audience to easily fall into sympathizing with our lead Paddy Considine, who can turn from affable to menacing on a dime in this role.

Highly recommended.

This one was a tad uneven for me, even on a revisit, since I went into it hoping for more of a horror film than a comedy, but there's still some enjoyment to be had if you try to keep the expectations low. I mean, hell, there's even a young Jack Nicholson for your viewing pleasure, how entertaining is that?

Rental.
