Follow along as a group of men take on the suicide mission of driving trucks loaded with nitroglycerin 300 miles over treacherous mountain roads. “When someone else is driving I’m scared.”

Faster, Pussycat! Kill!... Kill!

Reel Review #46: “I never try anything. I just do it. Wanna try me?” This 1965 Russ Meyer film has become a cult and camp classic over time. Not your standard Meyer film, it would probably be rated PG-13 if released today. As the DVD cover says, “Superwomen! Filmed in glorious black and blue.”

Reel Reviews – Glengarry Glen Ross


Reel Review #44: “PUT THAT COFFEE DOWN. Coffee is for closers only.” Glengarry Glen Ross is the kind of film that burns itself in your memory. Terrific performances by a cast including Al Pacino, Kevin Spacey, Alec Baldwin and Jack Lemmon. “You never open your mouth until you know what the shot is.”

Reel Reviews – M

Reel Review #43: “He is not even a real crook.” Watch the seminal serial killer film, Fritz Lang’s 1931 M staring Peter Lorre in a role that would catapult him to international recognition. “I can’t help what I do! I can’t help it, I can’t… ”

Cinephile Series – Scarface

Reel Review #42: “I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.” Today we spend some time with Tony Montana as we give the Cinephile Series treatment to Scarface. Capping off a discussion of the film and its history is an interview with actor, Pepe Serna who played Angel Fernandez whom you will remember from the chainsaw scenes. Remember this discussion assumes you have seen the film first. “Lesson number one. Don’t underestimate the other guys greed!”

Reel Reviews – Overnight

Reel Review #41: “We are better than everybody… We have a deep cesspool of creativity here.” This 2003 documentary chronicles the rise and fall of a Hollywood Cinderella story. Watch as Troy Duffy turns the chance of a lifetime into a wasted opportunity. If this story wasn’t true, you’d never believe it. “You deserve it, but you won’t get it.”

Reel Reviews – The Searchers

Reel Review #40: “Put an end to it! There’s no more time for praying!” A true classic. Watch as John Ford artfully directs what is probably John Wayne’s best role. Wayne’s portrayal of Ethan Edwards, a flawed man on a quest to find his niece, is arresting. It is time to see the film that is widely credited as being the inspiration for Taxi Driver and Paris, Texas.
