A small group of tough, truck-driving Frenchmen ply freight routes across the craggy terrain of North Africa. Along the way, they drink, carouse, scrap and double-cross one another. One of the drivers—the youngest and most personable—steals a truck, and his friends give long chase, skirting disaster...Created by filmmaker Henri Verneuil as a western with trucks instead of horses, 100 000 dollars au soleil remains a highly enjoyable action comedy with plenty of fun punchlines and a great cast. 1964 was a great year for Henri Verneuil, who also directed with Belmondo, WEEKEND AT ZUDYCOOTE.

MONSTER OF FLORENCE (1985)-Companion film to THE KILLER IS STILL AMONG US, based on a true story of the Italian serial killer who terrorized Florence. In Italian with English subs. Gory & nasty giallo, based on the real-life killings that shocked Italy! The killer here enjoys slaying couples that make love inside cars. This is actually one of the 2 films which were made at the same year (the other one is THE KILLER IS STILL AMONG US!) with the intention to exploit those shocking murders! Needless to say these films prompted anger from the victims' families. Uncut & slightly letterboxed. Cesare Ferrario's "Il Monstro Di Firenze" . The movie is quite creepy at times, and although it's certainly not the most suspenseful thing ever brought to screen, it has a certain eerie atmosphere, which is intensified by a pretty cool (though in no way outstanding) score. Several gruesome murders of young couples have occurred around Florence since 1968. In 1985, when this series of murders has not yet come to an end, Writer Andreas Ackermann (Leonard Mann) is currently writing a book about the killings, and therefore works on some kind of psychological profile of the mysterious psychopath...

TIME OF INDIFFERENCE (1964)-in Italian with English subs. Beautiful letterboxed version of this outstanding film, with great performances by an outstanding cast. Impeccably styled and shot, Francesco Maselli's hyper-elegant 1920s drama rivals Bertolucci's 'The Conformist' and Godard's 'Contempt' as the best-ever film of an Alberto Moravia novel. All the acting is first-rate: Paulette Goddard as a faded grande dame, Claudia Cardinale and Tomas Milian as her wayward offspring, Shelley Winters as her scheming 'best friend' and Rod Steiger as the coarse and ruthless businessman who holds them all in his power. The evocation of the period is almost eerie in its perfection. Did Marcel Escoffier and Luigi Scaccianoce really design those luscious costumes and sets, or did they wander into a haunted house where ghosts live that way?

URSUS AND THE TERROR OF KIRGHIZ (1964)-In Italian with English subs, widescreen print. Throw away those copies under the title HERCULES PRISIONER OF EVIL, this blows that one away!

We know they are a good and decent people because their leader, Ursus, has great muscle definition and pumped up he-man hair. Their tribe also has a hot blonde chick hanging around their camp.  Then there are the evil Kirghiz who inhabit the mountain region of Turdistan.  We know they are evil because their leader, Zereteli, is an ugly guy who favors wearing fur-trimmed gladiator garb. Another tip off that the Kirghiz are bad news is that there is a surly dark haired gal prowling and scheming in their palace.

WOLF IN THE WOODS (1971)-In Spanish with English subs. Pedro Olea directs this offbeat Spanish horror film with Nuria Torray, John Steiner and Alfredo mayo.

He spends his spare time as a wolf man, murdering women and burying their corpses in the Ancines Woods. Only a forest dwelling witch knows his transformation is caused by epileptic seizures. The Abbot (Antonio Casas) is called on to form a team to investigate, and local farmers set out wolf traps in an effort to halt the harrowing murders.

ZORRO IN THE COURT OF ENGLAND (1969)-In Italian with English subs, widescreen print. The film stars Spyros Focas, Carol Wells, Daniele Vargas, and Franco resell, directed by Franco Montemurro. Colorful and fun, Zorro in the Court of England has a fair amount of action and delivers on the sword fighting and guys getting their face carved with a bloody Z just like all you Zorro Zombies demand!  Though Zorro comes off as a bit of a suck up to English rule (he's not opposed to being ruled by the English only to the nasty governor), I didn't mind that much, mainly because I'm not from Bermuda.  Some humorous touches including snide comments by Zorro's pacifist alter ego about Captain Well's scarred face as well as amusing bits of physical comedy (Zorro tumbling down a hillside and hiding in a haystack as well as literally pulling the rug out from under Wells) make this Italian take on the Spanish-American character inexplicably set in an English colony a slashing success!

Captain Bellodi has no idea that his pursuit of the truth will stir up a hornet's nest. Powerful figures have a vested interest in ensuring that the very existence of the Mafia can be denied. The movie dramatizes the hold that the Mafia has on Sicilian life: the police, the judiciary, politics, and the Catholic Church. Everyone in the village is afraid to talk to Bellodi for fear they will be silenced forever

DEATH OF A HOODLUM (1975)-In Spanish with English subs. Paul Naschy plays Marcos, a criminal who takes refuge in a house peopled by a wheelchair-bound, impotent man and his horny wife and daughter. Before long Marcos is pitting one family member against the other as he pleasures himself with the females. Marcos' immorality is caused by his own family tragedy, the murder of his mother by his father, which he witnessed when a child. He is a man who out of psychological necessity must debase the family unit and rage at anyone who says a bad word about his deceased mom. Marcos also lost his hearing during this traumatic incident in his childhood (the father hits him in the head before he does the deed), so besides the emotional scars left on Marcos, there is a physical one. Thus Naschy creates a novel villain who carries a framed photo of mom in his suitcase and wears a hearing device in his ear.

GOODNIGHT MR MONSTER (1982)-In Spanish with English subs. Paul Naschy in one of his most obscure Wolfman roles! This movie is the best. Mostly for kids, a great parody of the most popular classic horror films (Dracula, The Werewolf, Frankenstein...), starring the child's music band "Regaliz" performing very funny songs. The director is good and the actors manage to make us laugh very often. It's so funny,  you get a good laugh, and make children laugh at the classical monsters instead of fearing them. Highly recommended, both for children and adults who wants to remember their childhood besides laughing a little.

INVINCIBLE BROTHERS MACISTE (1964)-Letterboxed print. Directed by Roberto Mauri and starring Iloosh Khoshabe, Claudie Lange, Anthony Steffen. It’s a bit weird, a fantasy/peplum mix with the heroes fighting underground kingdom protected by guys in leopard suits and ruled by a lovely queen with a very ‘60s appearance. And if you thought one Maciste was invincible enough, this time there’s two, as the title indicates. Anthony Steffen’s role is far from glorious. He sorely misses that pistol and cowboy hat. He does the talking while the Maciste brothers do the fighting.

THE LAST KAMIKAZE (1984)-In Spanish with English subs.Paul Naschy plays an inventive hitman who always carries out the job. This is one of those Spanish-Japanese co-productions Naschy made in the 1980s.The plot concerns a rivaling pair of hitmen, one played by Naschy, who are destined to confront each other at the end of the film. In the meantime, sequence follows sequence of hits staged with either predictability or amusing glee. It is Naschy's acting, however, that takes the foremost position here: on one hand he is a brutal hired killer of no remorse, and on the other a man deeply troubled by the heredity influences of his Nazi father. He essays both roles with meticulous exactness, proving himself to be an actor of credible strength in his mature years.

MAIGRET SETS A TRAP (1958)-In French with English subs. Jean Gabin stars as the French detective Maigret, Annie Giradot co-stars.. The film typifies the kind of crime thriller that was popular in France in the 1950s, with its shadowy sets and exotic characters, very evocative of the American film noir of the 1940s. Paul Misraki’s haunting Maigret theme seems to hang in the air like a venomous fog, drawing the audience inescapably into a dark and dangerous twilight world. Some parts of the film are quite disturbing, particularly the murder attempts, some scenes having a chilling resonance with Hitchcock’s Psycho.

THOMPSON 1880(1966)-In Spanish with English subs, letterboxed print. George Martin, Gia Sandri, Gordon Mitchell, directed by Guido Zurli. A western made during the boom of such movies in Italy, but quite an unusual one. It's not about revenge or a bag of gold, it's about a kind of economic struggle. The villain Brady (Paul Muller) asks his men to always obey the law, because guns are not as effective. He tries to control a town by building a monopoly, thus controlling the prices on all kinds of goods. This becomes difficult when Ray (George Martin) comes to town. He is unarmed, but invents the first machine gun, which gave the movie its title. Sheila (Gia Sandri) expects Ray to help her build up her own shop with lower prices. In opposite to most genre heroes, Ray is not keen on using a gun at all. But when Brady is increasingly afraid of losing his profits, the going gets tough, naturally. Great roles for José Bódalo as the drunken judge who loves to quote Shakespeare, Gordon Mitchell as a gunman with crippled hands and Pedro Sanchez as one of the bad guys.

Haimon (Tomas Milian) goes against the wishes of his father and the prime minister by wanting to become an animal. Tiresias (Pierre Clementi) plays a Christ-like figure.

Our heroic & somewhat neurotic young doctor senses that the accidents are connected, somehow, and tracks all of the deadly appliances to a local general merchandise store, where they were all purchased brand new just before turning on their would have been owners. Further intrigue involving a sinister local physician, a deformed kid, a well-informed Atari, and the indifference of the local population all add to the mix, with our young heroine becoming increasingly hysterical & convinced that some sort of other-worldly influence is at work.

LES HOMMES (1973)-In French with English subs, beautiful letterboxed print. A hell of a French gangster film with henry Silva, Marcel Bofuzzi, and Michel Constatine. The movie is about a succession of settling of scores and the revenge of a mobster who think he has been framed. It's set in the 1950's in Corsica, Marseilles and Paris and it's based on real events. France was producing a lot of crime films back in this time and this one is one of the few that really resembles more to some poliziotteschi flick than to the regular french film noir. The Corsican setting, with a culture and a local language seemingly pretty closed to italian ones maybe explains that.

MASK OF THE GORILLA (1958)-In French with English subs. Lino Ventura uses his panache to get over the absurd aspects of the story--his supposed superhuman powers (breaking his chains, à la Samson) only make us snicker. Such was this man's appeal that we can watch him do the most preposterous things (he was a wrestler, and could do his own stunts) and be entertained. Bernard Borderie, on the evidence of this film, and the half-dozen Angélique films he made, was a competent journeyman director. He never inspires but sometimes he pleases the viewer, at least when actors like Pierre Dux, René Lefèvre and Charles Vanel are given sizeable parts. He uses his actors well, and this covers up the mediocrity of the plot (missing atomic weapons secrets, again!).

MURDER INVESTIGATION OF A STUDENT (1972)-In Italian with English subs. One of the greatest things about this movie is Ennio Morricone's soundtrack ,as gorgeous as ever. Martin Balsalm investigates a murder that points to a student rebel. Balsalm discovers he’s being used and set up to get rid of a politician’s enemies. He gives a great performance as a nobody who refuses to be manipulated by the system. Directed by Mauro Bolognini.

OEDIPUS ORCA (1977)-In Italian with English subs, letterboxed print.  Former German playboy centerfold rena Niehaus stars. This is an unusual Italian movie in that it is a sequel to "La Orca", a film made only one year earlier (Italy in the 70's was infamous for cheap rip-offs, but not really for sequels). "La Orca" was a rather notorious film about a spoiled teenage girl (Rena Neihaus) who is kidnapped and has to use her sexual wiles to survive. This movie picks up right afterwards when she is taken back to her family and boyfriend. Her family is a little odd. Both her mother and father come in the bathroom, for instance, while she's in the tub after her ordeal (or maybe that was a normal thing to do in 1970's bourgeois Italy?). Her boyfriend insists on feeling her up on their first date after the incident, which triggers a sexual flashback from the first movie. But she is herself is obviously disturbed--she gets her boyfriend to take her back to the shack in which she was held in the previous film where, unable to persuade him to have sex, she masturbates (and further pads the running time with more flashbacks from the first movie). The film then takes another strange turn when her parents take her out to their country estate. There she tries to seduce an old family friend (played by the director himself) after she finds out he and her mother were lovers many years back (you can probably see where THIS might very well go). There is some strange and seemingly gratuitous footage of a slaughterhouse floor, perhaps in a bid to make this as sleazy and notorious as its predecessor

SANTO AND BLUE DEMON IN THE LAND OF THE DEAD (1970)-In Spanish with English subs. Making very good use of a creepy score and some genuinely atmospheric cinematography (not to mention enough action to keep things interesting), THE LAND OF THE DEAD turns out to be one of the better Santo movies. Our hero gets the lion's share of time on screen (which always helps in a Santo movie), and is, in fact, aided and abetted by longtime friendly rival Blue Demon. Blue, it turns out, has been resurrected by a witch to help dispense her own particular brand of justice to the Santo of today, whose ancestor (Santo in a 16th century get-up) brought about her untimely demise (she was burned at the stake).

SHERIFF WON’T SHOOT (1965)-In Spanish with English subs, After a tragic misfortune in which a gunman has killed his father, he decides to put away his guns not to use them ever again. However as he is an infallible gunman the people nominate him to be sheriff of the country. Things seem to go calmly until an outlaw band besieges the country putting it to iron and fire. The gunman will examine his conscience to decide whether he is forced to break his oath and to take up his infallible guns in order to stop the band.  A lively-enough Western but at times stupidly melodramatic, it takes advantage of its one central plot device (the tragically murdered father) over and over again in repetitive and at times ill advised way. The film is ideally suited for those who appreciate beautiful action sequences. It is not a high concept film, but it is a western to see. Mickey hargitay stars and Renato polselli directs.

TURIN CITY OF VICE (1979)-In Italian with eng subs, letterboxed print. Polselli was co-director with Vani shooting Torino centrale del vizio (1978) , a sexy-crime movie that tells about another sado-masochistic relationship between Mirko (Tony Matera) and Hellen (Rita Calderoni). Their friendship becomes more and more important, so Mirko decides to marry her, but Hellen first wants him to know all of her particular vices and the dark side of her life, confessing she’s a part-time prostitute and about her irregular lesbians inclination. After the marriage, Hellen suddenly disappears, and nobody can find her anymore. One day, on the wet roads of Turin, Mirko catches a glimpse of her in a suspicious car. In fact Hellen is trapped and blackmailed by a gang of local “Mafiosi”, who stop the search by Mirko attacking him in an isolated villa. In this ambiguous building the strange lovers’ meeting happens again. Torino centrale del vizio soundtrack (by Stelvio Cipriani) exudes the sense of illness that pervades the whole film.

VICTORY MARCH (1976)-In Italian with English subs. Here is a hell of a powerful film by Marco Belloccio with a performance by franco Nero that will turn your stomach! Marco Bellocchio's trenchant VICTORY MARCH is about the madness of military life and its children's power games. It deals with the psychological ravishing of a sensitive and literate young man during the first year in his service in the Italian army. He is abused and shoved about by officers and non-commissioned personnel, and when he has the audacity to become a good soldier, he is shunned by the other trainees. The soldier, Passeri, is played by the talented Michele Placido, who was the youngest brother in THREE BROTHERS and the teacher in FOREVER MARY, both made after this film. Much of the movie treats Passeri's relationship with a strict and possibly psychotic young officer (Franco Nero) and his sluttish young wife, played by French actress Miou-Miou. The movie delves into the relationship between power and sexuality, has some scenes that are rather graphic. But it is another example of Bellocchio's exhilarating talent which can be both savage and humane, satiric and dramatic, and most certainly always fascinating.

$20,000 ON NUMBER 7 (1968)-No longer with an annoying  “not for sale” at the bottom of the screen! Letterboxed print.Alberto Cardone directs and the Cast: Roberto Miali (as Jerry Wilson)(Jerry Kingio), Aurora Bautista (Peggy), Adriano Micantoni (as Mike Anthony)(Guy), Spartaco Conversi (as Spean Convery)(Steel), Teodoro Corrá (as Doro Corrá)(Gringo), Hector Boilleaux (Rod), Valentino Macchi. As a second unit or assistant director, Alberto Cardone (here billed as Albert Cardiff) worked on Ben Hur, Barbarella, Summertime and Carmen among others; as director he is responsible for several 'Dollar' westerns attempting to cash in, if you'll pardon the pun, on Leone's success.The title sounds expensive but it's probably more than was spent on this spaghetti western which spares every expense but achieves a kind of style through its very sparseness; unfortunately, this pared-down approach is also applied to the story which is the most basic of revenge plots. The beautiful Aurora Batista (often in Leone-like close-ups)is wasted since she is given almost no lines to deliver in the few scenes in which she appears. There's a great deal of far-fetched tricksy shooting, and equally unbelievable fistfights. Great music, though, conducted by Cipriani.

COP’S HIDE (1981)-In French with English subs. French cinema of nineteen eighties was known for its numerous popular films which gave a new dimension to box office collections. COP’S HIDE is one such film which is not so much known by ordinary film viewers both in France and elsewhere.This might have something to do with the manner in which this film was distributed. It is sure that loyal Alain Delon fans would be aware that this film marked the beginning of his directorial career in 1981.Alain Delon gives one of his career's finest performances as a detective who would go to any length in order to bring cold blooded criminals to justice.As a film director he has not fought shy of portraying what ails police forces in France.In "Pour La Peau D'Un Flic",policemen are shown as real human beings with their fair share of weaknesses.Alain Delon's acting performance has too many shades of similarities with American actor Al Pacino although it would be politically incorrect to suggest such a comparison.This is a good film for all those people who would like to see Alain Delon both as an actor as well as a director in a same film.

The two actors give superlative performances ,particularly Jacques Perrin I have perhaps never seen better than here.His youthful look works wonders when Bolognini depicts his deceived innocence ;he is deeply moving when tears begin to fall on his cheeks (when there's nothing left to hope ,when words cannot convey what he feels ...) His father (Alain Cuny) is both God and the Devil ;God because he is a wealthy man who selfishly reigns over his fellow men ,because he wants to create a son in his own image (he tells him so);the Devil because his yacht becomes the garden of Eden where he puts a new Eve .

I MARRIED A SHADOW (1983)-In french with english subs, letterboxed print. If there’s any such thing as a leisurely thriller then it’s got to be this film from France, which was based on the novel ‘I Married a Dead Man’ by Cornell Woolrich, whose crime stories seem to have appealed to the French (THE BRIDE WORE BLACK and MISSISSIPPI MERMAID, for example, as adapted by Truffaut), and have seen several Hollywood movie adaptations (most notably REAR WINDOW).  The premise has a good hook: two pregnant women get their identities mixed up after a rail disaster; the surviving one impulsively begins to pick up the other woman’s life where it left off.  It’s really all too good to be true: a handsome mansion in the countryside surrounded by the vineyards of a vintner family.  Of course it’s too good to be true: Patricia/Helene (for who is she, really?) takes on her new role without really thinking about how she’s going to get away with it…and not unexpectedly finds herself in over her head. A handomely-presented production that avoids sensationalism (and all the histrionic screeching and hammering music cues that seem to have defined Hollywood thrillers of the last couple of decades), supported by gorgeous photography, a rich orchestral score, great location shooting, and, for all of those who think that CGI sucks, a train crash which, by god, looks like the real thing!

She falls for an officer but he is naturally unable to act on his impulses because he believes she is a man. Other men also make passes at her in hopes she is really the man she claims to be. The situation allows for plenty of sight gags and situation comedy from the battlefield to the bedroom.

THE MONOCLE (1964)-In french with english subs, letterboxed print. The French have a way with the spy film (among other things) and this must be among the most eccentric spy films of the 1960's. Paul Meurisse plays Major Theobald Dromar a.k.a. The Monocle, a fey secret agent who wears a monocle (hence the nickname) and cultivates an array of other odd mannerisms. Dromar is exceptionally successful in his work while putting up with the vulgar heathens on both sides of the law that surround him.This adventure of The Monocle matches the strange character of Dromar to a tee (there were two previous films, The Black Monocle and Eye of the Monocle). There is some nice high contrast black and white photography and a great cool jazz score by Michel Magne, who also scored the Fantomas films. But the highlights of the film revolve around the curiosities tossed at the viewer with nonchalance. Director Georges Lautner (The Great Spy Chase) had charge of the previous Monocle films as well so his feel for the character is well ingrained.The plot is simple enough but it has little to do with one's enjoyment of the film, after all. Locations in Hong Kong and Macao are used to great effect. Hong Kong never looked so densely crowded nor Macao so spare and haunting. There is lots of street footage in both places, some typical, but most not so.One of the most unusual spy film experiences, The Monocle grows on you if you give it the chance. As Dromar says at one point `the more I see of the Chinese, it's amazing how like the French they are.'

MONSIEUR HAWARDEN (1969)-In French with English subs. Directed by Harry Kumel. This elegant, mysteriously beautiful motion picture is based upon an authentic 19th-century diary, and the director makes his feature film debut with this work. It tells the story of a wanderer, Monsieur Hawarden, who travels with a faithful servant, the enigmatic Victorine, whose blonde, impassive features reveal nothing about either herself or her employer. They move by coach from inn to inn, and at the beginning of the film, Hawarden informs the owners of a country estate that he intends to remain there indefinitely as a paying guest. The director introduces the setting and characters with the same sort of E.T.A. Hoffman baroque melancholy that Bergman used in The Magician. The hint of secrets (unspeakable), sensual repression and imminent death are all part of this dramatic mood, and the director carries it off magnificently. One by one, all of Monsieur Hawarden’s secrets are revealed, and all the questions answered, although it seems what he desires most is a last chance to live among real people whose lives are ordered and simple. While he roams the exquisite countryside with the young son of the estate-keeper, Hawarden’s memories of a past in Vienna continually recur, with images of aristocrats, white-caped soldiers and duels. Meanwhile, Victorine’s sexual longings are gradually brought into the open by some lusty servants; they, like all the rest of the household are fascinated by Hawarden’s wealth, and jealous of his power over Victorine. The unfolding of this ingenious film is the true magic in a spectator’s enjoyment of the entire experience. Monsieur Hawarden is quite original and should not be marred by detained revelations; it must be treated like a jeweled surprise-box. Harry Kumel’s debut is an exciting one because his film is a dazzling experiment in storytelling, and even its tragic overtones are never distorted by a gentle, reflective determinism from which neither the characters or the audience can ever escape.

SANTO VS THE GHOST OF THE STRANGLER (1963)-In Spanish with English subs. Loosely a sequel to SANTO VS. EL ESTERANGULADOR, this is in some ways an extremely odd little crime thriller. Still, from its opening credits, shown over footage of an ambulance speeding through the night, en route to collect the body of the disfigured Strangler, it's an entertaining little romp. The film opens with the recovery of the body of the Strangler (Roberto Canedo), who had died at the hands of the police, at the conclusion of the first film. The disfigured killer is taken to the city morgue for what turns out to be a brief lay-over.
Reading of the killer's death in the newspaper, Tor (Gerardo Zepeda), the Strangler's assistant, heads for the morgue to recover his master's body. The Strangler, it seems, isn't actually dead...Reviving in his hideout, the Strangler vows revenge. In yet another Mexican horror film reference to the PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, the strangler is both facially scarred and spends his free time tickling the ivories on his pipe organ. At this point, the storyline gets somewhat unusual. The Strangler gets about through the use of lifelike masks. These are dutifully fashioned from the skin of his victims, by the faithful, mute Tor.

His first movie - "Geißel des Fleisches" - came as a shock to Austrians, his second movie "Schamlos" repeated that experience.

BACK LASH (1964)- Four years after appearing together in "À bout de souffle/Breathless", Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg reunited on screen in an adventure comedy directed by Jean Becker. Lighthearted mixture of thrills, laughs and romance, done in the fizzy style that seems unique to the 60's. Diamond smuggling in a loaded Triumph sports car provides the action, as the protagonists go from Barcelona to Beirut, from Athens to Bremen, accompanied by an exhilarating jazzy score by Martial Solal. The fun is aided immeasurably by the charisma and chemistry of the two stars: Belmondo, full of bravado and charm, displaying his full star power; and Seberg looking impossibly glamorous and cool, showing toughness and vulnerability. Gert Frobe and Fernando Rey lend their strong personalities to several scenes. It's astonishing that this heady entertainment is barely known, given that it's a reunion of the stars from the famous "Breathless". A must-see for any fan of 60's caper movies, and of the two stars.

COPLAN BREAKS OUT(1965)-Wow, finally a great looking letterboxed print of this Riccardo Freda spy film from the 60s! Riccardo Freda's first of two Francis Coplan spy films (his second being Coplan ouvre le feu à Mexico) Coplan FX 18 casse tout stars Richard Wyler in one of the 5 Coplan films based on Paul Kenny's espionage novels (this particular film is based on Stoppez Coplan).  This flamboyant entry project has FX-18 (Richard Wyler) hurtling back and forth between Paris and Istanbul to prevent an Arab nuclear strike on Israel. Teamed with a bumbling Israeli operative (stuntman Gil Delamare), FX-18 must deal with exploding airplanes, nuclear terrorists, scientists in spiked coffins, murdered strippers, and sadistic torture-killings, all while trying to avoid World War III. Freda loads the film with campy sexual sight-gags and wonderfully silly set pieces such as the film's finale, in which Coplan is strapped inside a nuclear warhead to be launched to a certain doom. Delamare stages some impressive stunts, and although the supporting cast is rather weak, Wyler, Delamare, and siren Jany Clair make the film enjoyable for genre devotees.

COP’S HONOR (1985)-In French with english subs, beautiful letterboxed print. Alain Delon, Jacques Perrin, and Fiona Gelin. This is for me the best movie Alain Delon ever did, look at his physical condition at the age of fifty, there's a lot of Action in it with great stunts performed by Delon himself! It also is a violent movie , but you'll only see that in this uncut french version. The story is a kind of revenge for my daughter story written by Alain Delon himself who also produced the movie and sang the chanson at the credits!

"In this French suspense drama, Paul (Jean-Claude Brialy) is a decent man in an ugly situation. His wife (Stephane Audran), who was crippled in their second year of marriage, has become a bitter and unpleasant virago. Though he keeps company with a lovely mistress (Catherine Spaak), the wife is still a considerable burden. When she dies in an automobile accident, he is relieved. That relief is short-lived, however, because his sister-in-law (Stephane Audran, again) comes to live with him immediately. For reasons of her own, she re-creates his wife's shrewish persona and even uses her wheelchair. At the same time, someone tries to blackmail him by suggesting that he killed his wife...

The monocled Dromard is convinced that he can outfox his opponents, but difficulties accumulate: despite his plump appearance, Herr Schlumpf is a sly fellow; Corsica is teeming with treasure hunters from various nationalities; and all parties readily resort to unnatural alliances, brazen treachery, and strong-arm tactics. Who will get the treasure? Paul Meurisse stars as the titular character and Elga Andersen as the female lead, directed by Georges Lautner.

LANDRU (1963)-Finally a beautiful, letterboxed version in French with English subs. The late Claude Chabrol’s take on the Bluebeard legend. France, WWI.  Landru, the father of four Children, contacts Parisian women through newspapers, seduces and eventually kills them in order to feed his little family. The film follows the facts closely, from Henri Désiré Landru's "family life", seductions and murders to his trial and execution. Well if your objective was to get the main details of a famous serial murder case you will be satisfied. However a film lover could have expected something more fiery, more intense, more unsettling from Claude Chabrol than just that. To tell the truth there is more to this movie than...just that. Indeed there are good production values, fine colours, slightly stylized settings and a stellar cast. Nevertheless, I couldn't help stifling a yawn now and then. Why so? Maybe because such great ladies as Danielle Darrieux, Michèle Morgan, Mary Marquet, or Hildegard Knef are given almost nothing to do.Only Stéphane Audran stands out in the part of Landru's naïve young mistress, Fernande.
Charles Denner, on the other hand, oddly directed by Chabrol, is a physical lookalike of the "sieur de Gambais" but fails to deliver both charm and terror.

THE LONER (1987)-in French with English subs, letterboxed print. Directed by Jacques Deray and starring Jean-Paul Belmondo. Belmondo is looking for his friends' killer and chases cars, beats up and kills people in the process. All in all it seems like a tough and nasty version of a 60s Eddie Constantine film.

Mil Sexos is a remake of Nightmares Come at Night, which had already been remade as Voodoo Passion. This is probably the best version of the three. But despite using the same plot all three films are completely different. Franco, is less concerned with the essentials of narrative than with mood and style.

THE NON-ENTITY (1986)-In French with English subs. Fanny Ardant, Daniel Autiel, Jeanne Moreau, Michel Piccoli, and Jeanne Yanne star and Michel Deville directs.  Four men, a journalist, a doctor, a professor and a merchant, meet up every evening in a deserted bar to play cards. One night the police arrive with the news that a dead body has been found nearby and the inspector in charge is sure that one of them did it. It is a whodunit, in an experimental vein. Plenty of krimi theory bandied about. What crossed my mind, however, was that it was more a meditation on gambling, that is until I discovered they were playing bridge. I thought - and don't hold me to this as a firm plotline - that gamblers need a certain ambivalence toward other players, that there is no "friendly game".  The four men around the card table have no names, nor do they seem at all bothered by the consequences of murder and conviction. Bridge, as far as I know IS a friendly game. Yes, I know, low stakes poker is pretty damned friendly!

PIRATES OF THE MISSISSIPPI (1964)-Beautiful letterboxed print. Horst Frank leads a criminal conspiracy that has control of the entire Mississippi River except for one river town whose sheriff is Brad Harris. They engage in an elaborate scheme to turn the Cherokee against their Harris, who like Old Shatterhand is “the red man’s friend.”  Eurowesterns often have confused geographies, but this movie places names were simply grabbed out of a hat. The Cherokee are portrayed as a plains tribes (with British Colombian cultural motifs on their tipis) living outside of Helena, Montana. Helena is placed as river town on the Mississippi River next to Vicksburg. While Pirates of the Mississippi has been routinely dismissed and overlooked, it is in fact, a rootin' tootin' old west live action comic book. It's way to violent to be considered a kiddie Western though. All the elements of a good popcorn Western are in place: Hard riding, saloon brawls, gunfights, Indian attacks, comic relief, and a dash of virginal romance. The heroes are righteous, the villains are slimy, the Indians are the usual hot-headed, easily manipulated dupes, and the townfolks are gullible dopes.

A Swiss legend tells of three herdsmen who let themselves in for the powers of evil and were punished gruesomely for their outrage... Up on a mountain, far from their village, the three herdsmen lead an ascetic life without any company or contact to the rest of the world. We have three very different characters, two of wich have no name: First, there's Senn, the upright leader of the trio who is always keen on maintaining discipline and order even under such social circumstances. Second is a rather sleazy fellow who looks a little like Roman Polanski and seems to be disturbingly horny all the time and very fond of schnapps. Thus, he doesn't even shy away from sexually harassing the third member of the trio, a thirteen year old boy who seems to have great fear of moving the kettle to the "Black mountain" where our story takes place. However, the boy has his own vice as he likes his favourite cow by the name of Bruni, to lick salt off his body. One day, the boy finds a curiously, face-shaped root in a cave. The night after, the two other men get drunk – and decide to build a "woman" out of wood, cloth and the boy's root. They soon come to regret this when their creation comes to life...

The narrator, an elderly Manhattan lawyer with a very comfortable business helping wealthy men deal with mortgages, deeds, and bonds, relates the story of the strangest man he has ever known At first, Bartleby appears to be a boon to the practice, as he produces a large volume of high-quality work. One day, though, when asked by the narrator to help proofread a copied document, Bartleby answers with what soon becomes his stock response: "I would prefer not to." To the dismay of the narrator and to the irritation of the other employees, Bartleby performs fewer and fewer tasks around the office. The narrator makes several attempts to reason with him and to learn something about him, but Bartleby offers nothing but his signature "I would prefer not to." One weekend the narrator stops by the office unexpectedly and discovers that Bartleby has started living there. The loneliness of Bartleby's life impresses him: at night and on Sundays, Wall Street is as desolate as a ghost town, and the window in Bartleby's corner allows him no view except that of a blank wall three feet away.

THE DOUBLE (1971)-Great looking print in English with no subs and lots of nekkd ewa Aulin too! Romolo Guerrieri's The Double has tried to do something a little different with the common Giallo formula, and like the latter film; this one isn't entirely successful, although it's certainly an intriguing take on Italy's finest style of film-making. The plot is narrated via a series of flashbacks, and while this gives the film a rather disjointed feel, the talented director ensures that every scene flows well and is relevant to the plot. The focus of this movie isn't on murder, despite someone being shot in the opening scene and it's always clear that the characters are the star of this show. The film revolves around Frank; the man shot at the beginning, as he lies in a pool of blood, he thinks back to how he got into that position - a story that centres on the mother of his nineteen year old girlfriend. Frank is an architect living off his father's allowance and he's also a jealous lover. He doesn't like his girlfriend seeing an American holidaymaker, also staying in Morocco - but he also can't resist the lure of his girlfriend's sexy mother...

GENERAL OF THE DEAD ARMY (1983)-In Italian with English subs. Rare directorial job by the cinematographer of Argento’s SUSPIRIA! Twenty years after WW2 an Italian general (Marcello Mastroianni) embarks on a questionable mission through the heart of Albania searching for the remains of those who once fought on the side of the Fascists. Relying on dated and often ambiguous records the general encounters an ambitious German colonel (Gerard Klein) who appears to be on a similar quest.
Based on Albanian author Ismail Kadare's hugely-popular novel, Luciano Tovoli's Il Generale dell'armata Morta is a film full of symbolism. Slow-paced, often resembling a theater play, Tovoli's work evokes parallels with Valerio Zurlini's adaptation of Buzzati's Il Deserto dei Tartari (for which Tovoli was the cinematographer). Searching in vain for the bodies of the Italian soldiers, the general's will to endure the unfriendly locals is repeatedly tested. Frustration is replaced by anger, drastically transforming Mastroianni's character.

PANIC (1963)-In Spanish with English subs. Mexican horror anthology film [Pánico] takes place in 3 parts. The first part has an attractive, nightgown-clad young woman fleeing through the forest with a witch in hot pursuit who's brandishing a very sharp knife. Why is the woman running? Why is the witch after her? And who are the three young men she keeps seeing in the woods as she runs? This segment is short and has a satisfying wrap up of what's going on.

The second part has two men fleeing a plague of some sort. They've just buried a young woman and have decided to leave the area by getting into a canoe and paddling down the river. Before long, however, the mind of one of the men starts playing tricks in regards to the woman they buried. They then get into a nasty fight which leaves the second man dead and the first man suffering even more hallucinations. Man #1 then buries Man #2. But is the other man really dead? Why does the first man begin to have "visions" of his former friend un-burying himself and stalking him in the woods? Far out stuff here; the end of this segment is most unusual.

Segment #3 has to do with a scientist and his cat who both ingest some chemicals by accident. This liquid gives the victims the appearance of being dead, but we quickly discover the scientist and the cat are merely paralyzed. But the scientist's wife and the family doctor can't find a pulse or heartbeat when they discover him. What to do? Have a funeral and bury the unfortunate scientist. Can the scientist wake up from his paralysis in time to avoid being buried alive? Lucky for the cat he was able to get up and walk away when the paralysis wore off! The ending of this final episode is hilarious with a conclusion you'd never expect.

Eventually, he reveals a secret about himself that he kept hidden from his younger wife Lina, and that in a roundabout way concerns her as well. It is the conclusion of a struggle that started many decades earlier, when Elsa Wiener, a German singer exiled in Paris, without money or relations, a refugee among many others, faced two daunting problems: surviving in a foreign city, and saving her husband Michel from the clutches of the Nazis.

The Visigoths invade Italy during the later years of the Roman Empire.  When the emperor's sister tricks the barbarians into a wholesale massacre of their men, their leader vows revenge. For its time - 1960 - REVENGE OF THE BARBARIANS is surprisingly erotic. Voluptuous Daniella Rocca oozes sex, and it also contains two rather kinky scenes of females being whipped, the second even leading to a bit of s/m love-making. I found the whipping scenes mildly interesting, just from the standpoint of how raw they seemed and how believable the cries of pain were.

THE SILVER MASK (1954)-In Spanish with English subs. Before Santo, there was the man in the silver mask!! 1. The main role was offered to Santo, but he refused.
2. This film is the starting point of the "Lucha Libre" genre. Huracán Ramírez makes his film debut a year earlier, but not with the formality of a masked-wrestler-vigilante. So, presumably this film opens the genre. It's debatable anyway.
3. Although it has many elements of sci-fi, the dominant genre is action/noir.
4. Repeatedly, the character of this film use the distinctive "Silver masked." Immortalized six years later.
5. Was planned as a series, for this reason has "cliffhanger endings", but was never presented in that way, it rolls as a normal movie.
6. Occasionally you hear the eerie music that would later become indispensable in the atmosphere of the Santo movies.
7. This film has higher production and better performance than a Santo movie.
8. Rene Cardona Jr. (the side-kick) eventually became a film director who've brought real great garbage to Mexican cinema.

One comrade: "Whom? Them? But Why?" Rutolo: "They must leave this island with us. Immediately. We can't do without them on the continent." Another comrade: "But this will take time." Rutolo: "That's why. Exaggerate, make them cry, frighten them...." In the end, Rutolo's group massacres the men and rapes the women because they have refused to join invaders' search for a "better world" (referred to in the film as "the continent"). This short example from one of the most accomplished of the Taviani's films sums up the uneasy choice Vittorio an Paolo try to express in their oeuvre: there should be a revolution, but is there a revolution without injustice, blood, and despair? In a revolution, there are neither victors nor vanquished but only victims; revolution may be a goal, but is any goal worth so much bitterness and suffering? Can there be a revolution without one group forcing another to do what it dies not want to do? But if there can be no good revolution, what is left? Is it all just utopian dreaming?

WOMEN AT WAR  (1965)-In Italian with English subs, letterboxed print. Directed by Valerio Zurlini and starring Anna Karina, Lea Massari, Marie Laforêt, Tomas Milian, Mario Adorf, and Valeria Moriconi. In WWII, Lieut. Martino and his men are assigned to lead a group of prostitutes through the mountainous ways to serve in brothels for Italian soldiers in Greece. Shot almost entirely on location in Greece in an awesome deep-focus newreel-documentary style black-and-white (with the emphasis on the blacks), `Le Soldattesse' is the story a group of prostitutes that have been recruited for the military brothels of Italian soldiers during WW II, and the long truck ride they take trying to get to their destinations through a war-torn mountainous area. Three military men of different rank have the job of taking them through, and the relationships they develop with the girls on this trip is the real subject matter of the film. Sublimely beautiful Sixties New-Wave icon Anna Karina plays the most cheerful of the ladies of leisure but there are no real leads in the film, all 5 or 6 of the main characters are given equal screen time and Zurlini never falters once as he draws poetic and hilarous performances full of insights from each character. On a higher level "Le Soldattese" becomes a deep examination of one relatively minor but revealing absurdity (prostitutes being carried to brothels in a war-torn area to boost troop morale) overlapping the bigger, related absurdity of the war itself and Mussolini-era fascism.

FRANCE ANONYMOUS SOCIETY (1974)-In French with English subs, letterboxed print directed by Alain Corneau. Among the other interesting features of this French crime drama is a brief consideration of the dire consequences of the legalization of drugs. The Chief (Michel Bouquet) is a drug dealer whose empire ranges beyond the country guilty of legalizing drugs. He has been captured and nearly killed by an American rival and is being kept painfully alive by life-support machinery. The film begins in the future when the Chief is awakened from suspended animation and in flashback recounts his story to the naked woman who has freed him. i guess i would call it a very ferocious social & political satire to be specific, but i think it is also sci-fi : the film starts in the year 2222, and it is based on the idea that France would legalize all drugs (while time has proven that so far they did the opposite, actually).

I’LL SEE YOU IN HELL DARLING (1999)-in Greek with English subs, letterboxed print. AWESOME FILM BY THE DIRECTOR OF SINGAPORE SLING, Nikos Nicolaides!! Helaciously erotic tale of 2 lesbians who plot their revenge. Stylish, atmospheric and very erotic, a film which is likely to equally disturb and fascinate the audience with an open heart & mind. The traditional but intense Nikolaidis cinematography style is ever-present and , as usual, the best part about his films is the performances, dialogues, tabboos broken, fears and norms questioned. Not surprisingly, his characters are at best alienated if not somewhat crazy and delirious.

JUST BEFORE NIGHTFALL (1971)-In French with English subs, letterboxed print. The late Claude Chabrol, the French filmmaker known for his masterful explorations of crime, suspense, and the darker sides of human nature, directed this drama about a man forced to come to terms with his double life. Charles Masson (Michel Bouquet) is a successful ad man with a loving wife, Helene (Stephane Audran), two children, and a close friendship with his next-door neighbor Francois Tellier (Francois Perier), an architect who designed both of their houses. However, Charles has a secret -- he's been having an affair with Francois's wife Laura (Anna Douking). Charles and Laura share an enthusiasm for sadomasochism, and one night while mock-strangling her during lovemaking, Charles goes too far and kills Laura. At first, Charles seems to get away Scot free -- he's not considered a suspect, and while someone did see him leave the scene of the crime, that person declines to inform the police. But Charles cannot escape his conscience, and he eventually feels compelled to tell both Helene and Francois, neither of whom react with any particular shock or dismay. Juste Avant La Nuit was adapted by Chabrol  from a novel of the same name by Edouard Atiyah.

This project apparently originated as a Las Vegas stage presentation, with Nicky Henson in the lead. The plot as in the novel about the "boy born to be hanged" is followed in spirit rather than to the letter, with busty Joan Collins thrown in like a lagniappe as a lady highwayman...

Marga Lopez, Hector Suarez, Carmen Montejo and Carmen Salinas all gave a great performance. Lopez' soft and fragile voice gives the film a classic touch. And Suarez' and Salinas' comic lines and scenes gives it the comedy. As for Montejo she will give the frighting parts. An awesome film! I strongly recommend it

The Sensual Man stars Giancarlo Giannini, dapper as ever, as a sexually obsessed Italian nobleman, and details his erotic exploits over the course of the early to mid 20th century. We first meet him as a randy schoolboy peeking under the skirts of the household help, and the film follows him over the years with brief stopovers during the 1936 Fascist-era conquest of Ethiopia and the postwar comedown. By film's end our desperate hero is still trying to pick up women from the confines of his motor car, as he tearfully tries to break his sexual addiction. The film also features a typically over the top performance by Lionel Stander, here playing--believe it or not--Giannini's grandfather. Shot in autumnal hues by the great Tonino Delli Colli, The Sensual Man benefits from a romantic if unoriginal score by Armando Trovajoli.

The surface of the planet is covered by water, and the visitors marvel at the range of patterns and forms taken by the waves, which act in an awe-inspiring and sometimes frightening manner.  But cryptic events start taking place among the researchers, and the only possible explanation is that the ocean is responsible.

Leo studies her movements and ends up kidnapping her, as if she was his object to add to his erotic collection. The disturbing first-person narrative of an emotionally-crippled voyeur, BILBAO also reverberated with political implications: the title refers to both a prostitute’s name and the industrial capital of the Basque region, long a center of resistance to Castilian control.

It looks like a spy movie, it sounds like a spy movie, it's even titled like a spy movie, but "Countdown To Doomsday"  s technically more of a crime / private eye tale: the hero is not a secret agent but a private detective hired by a rich man to look into the kidnapping of his daughter, who is also a reporter who was writing a series of articles trying to expose a drug smuggling ring operating in Caracas. When he goes there, he finds himself under constant attacks and is even framed for murder, so he teams up with a British narcotics agent and his beautiful (and I mean BEAUTIFUL) female partner, as it seems they're all after the same target.

ETOILE (1988)-Beautiful widescreen print. The current film THE BLACK SWAN ripped off this plot from 24 years earlier. Claire Hamilton (Jennifer Connelly, PHENOMENA) has come to Budapest to audition for a ballet school run by the mysterious Marius Balakin (Laurent Terzieff, THE LAST METRO).Claire meets cute with fellow American Jason (Gary McCleery, TAPS) who retrieves her dropped slipper. Jason is in Budapest with his Uncle Joshua (an overacting Charles Durning) to buy up some antique clocks at auction but is quickly distracted by Claire. Claire goes to the audition but loses her nerve (although she is spotted by Balakin dancing on an empty stage). Back at her hotel receives flowers addressed to long dead ballerina Natalie Horvath. Claire plans to go back to New York but instead answers to a loudspeaker request for a car waiting for Natalie Horvath and gets into a Rolls Royce which spirits her
away into the past. Later, Jason sees her in a park and is delighted that she has stayed but she appears not to know him. Jason is mystified and grows suspicious when it appears that outside forces are trying to keep him away from her (including his uncle suddenly turning into a murderous lunatic). Meanwhile, Claire is groomed to fill Natalie's shoes in a performance of Swan Lake originally cut short by her death. American Peter Del Monte (TRAVELING COMPANION) takes a restrained approach to this slow-burn ghost story that goes against the grain of most Italian-produced horror of this time (producer Achille Manzotti also greenlighted the two NOTHING UNDERNEATH films and later TWO EVIL EYES) but is far
more successful compared to Del Monte's other Italian brush with the supernatural JULIA AND JULIA (one of the early hi-def TV productions of the time shot by Giuseppe Rotunno) with Kathleen Turner, Gabriel Byrne, and Sting. There are seeming references to SUSPIRIA (the ballerinas and the creepy school building), OPERA (the performance itself), and INFERNO (Jason's penetrating the subterranean lair) but it is all of a different, more contemplative style as befits Jurgen Kneiper's brooding orchestral score (paired on CD with the ultra funky Franco Micalizzi score for STRIDULUM/THE VISITOR). An uncredited Sergio Stivaletti (THE STENDHAL SYNDROME) created a giant animatronic black swan that is kept largely offscreen but the raising of its silhouetted head behind a curtain upon Jason's entrance
into its mirror-filled chamber recalls the rousing of SUSPIRIA's Helena Markos).

After the beginning of the large trial, in which everyone can feel this through their television, the show is abruptly interrupted by a torrential downpour. It 's a storm that has drastically and permanently replaced everything, clearing the land and its evils? Not at all, it's just a violent storm, which slowly runs out. So when the fear is over, everyone returns to the usual (and not always benevolent) habits, forgetting all the best intentions of redemption had just a few hours earlier, influenced by the terror of imminent end.

GUNMAN OF THE RIO GRANDE (1964)-Letterboxed print.

Famed marshal Wyatt Earp is sent to clean up a lawless mining town on the Mexican border. This early Italian westerns title Sfida a Rio Bravo (1965) gives away the inspiration for this movie, Howard Hawk's Rio Bravo (1959), which was very popular in Italy. Guy Madison stands in for John Wayne while Gerard Tichy plays the drunken friend on the mend.

I’LL SEE YOU IN HELL (1960)-In Italian with English subs, letterboxed print. John Drew Barrymore, Eva Bartok and Moira Orfei star in this atmospheric Black and White thriller by Piero regnoli. here we have a caper/crime movie that becomes a ghost story! While it is no lost classic, this unlikely hybrid plays much more successfully here; that said, the supernatural events are given a twist which might be considered a cop-out (though I predicted something to that effect much earlier). The film starts off immediately with the robbery or, rather, the ingenious idea to sound the alarm of the targeted establishment beforehand so that the police arrive on the scene in vain and the caretaker, almost in shame, turns it off for the rest of the night. No sooner has he done this that the criminals pounce on him and, typically, he ends up killed in the ensuing fracas – but, no, he is not the ghost in question. When the gang meets to divide the proceeds (a cache' of diamonds), their true natures emerge and soon start bickering, with one of them eventually drowning in the nearby swamp! The other two decide to lie low in the country but do not really trust each other – especially since the leader (an intense John Drew Barrymore) is obviously a psycho. His partner (Massimo Serato) is actually a respectable businessman who, on the night of the job, even creates a solid alibi for himself by literally bumping into the Police Commissioner at a nightclub! At this point, a girl (Eva Bartok) enters into the picture; soon after, Barrymore starts being haunted by his dead associate (in the form of whispered calls, writings and even the planting of a photo among his killer's things)! The catch is that this female 'intruder' is not as naïve as she lets on and, to complicate matters, Serato falls for her while the misogynistic Barrymore attempts to rape the girl! Anyway, it all concludes with a return to the fateful swamps and another drowning (guess who gets to go under this time around?). The boggy atmosphere and level of suspense are adequate for a clearly low-budget effort – though, in the end, it is the bearded Barrymore's histrionics which make the film worthwhile.

JOURNEY BENEATH THE DESERT (1961)-Beautiful widescreen print of this underappreciated action gem with Jean-louis trintignant and Gian maria Volonte! Here we have veteran B-movie director Edgar G. Ulmer's nominally modernized retelling of the archaic 1919 French novel L'Atlantide by Pierre Benoit.  This is all about adventurers held captive in a fantastic city beneath the Sahara.  Dehydrated waves of colorful, static and super-stylized visuals radiate from the screen.  Along  with  the acting and offbeat story development,  it all serves to imbue the proceedings with that insular weirdness that only Ulmer could or would cultivate.

This is a film that is a total joy from start to finish, and afterwards you will be baying for more of the same. I love it, take me back to the sixties now. It’s all about stolen gold and how everything goes wrong for the two stars as they try and outwit their evil partners.

Rivette is fascinating, and the prospect of a female Quixote traveling through a late 70s Paris in a period of destruction/reconstruction, with call backs to the radical '60s (and a sly nod to Fassbender's "Third Generation"), and a score by Astor Piazzola, is enough to make anyone excited. There is something else, too, that I have not seen much commented on; the friendship between the two female leads, related as they were in real life, is a genuine pleasure to watch, and exists somewhere other than acting as we are used to thinking of it. Generally recommended, for fans of the director and the performers,I would say very strongly recommended, no hesitation.

THE SHADOW LINE (1973)-In French with English subs.  Georges Franju TV movie based on two Joseph Conrad novellas, The Shadow Line and A Smile of Fortune. It’s been described as a ghost story without a ghost. It could also be called an action film without any action. A ship in the Far East, becalmed at sea, the crew stricken with fever. The overbearing presence of the former captain hanging over the ship, cursing it, wishing it doomed. This Joseph Conrad's adaptation (the hero, we are told, is the writer's avatar) shows some of Franju's best qualities: a sense of mystery and his natural ability to create strange atmospheres. "La Ligne D'Ombre" looks like an adventures movie but it isn't cause almost nothing happens, except for an epidemic and the discovery that there's no quinine aboard. "Inner adventures" or “a voyage through one mind" best describes the film.

TAKE IT EASY…IT’S A WALTZ (1971)-In French with English subs, letterboxed print. Having made some pretty respectable thrillers – such Le Pacha (1968) – Georges Lautner returned to the genre for which he best known, the decidedly off-the-wall comedy-thriller.   Laisse aller, c’est une valse attempts to follow the winning formula of Lautner’s previous hits, Les Tontons flinguers (1963) and Ne nous fâchons pas (1966) but doesn’t quite pull it off. There’s a great deal to like about this film – an excellent cast, some very witty dialogue and possibly the most hilarious love-making scene in French cinema. the film does deliver some very decent laughs, and the pairing of Jean Yanne with the lovely Mireille Darc (which was last attempted by Jean-Luc Godard in his 1967 film Week End) works a treat, a case of contrasting personalities (just how many misogynistic obscenities can Jean Yanne deliver in one breath?) hitting just the right note.  There are also some fine contributions from Bernard Blier and Michel Constantin, two of the most familiar faces in French thrillers.

Best known for his contribution to the spaghetti western genre, Damiani has always had an interest in the corrupting tendencies of power, and this film is no exception. Guiliano Gemma and Giancarlo Zanetti play Baressi and Prizzi, a pair of honest cops looking to solve the murder of a fellow officer who may have had his hand in the till. The crooks repeatedly try to grease Baressi's palm in an effort to get him off their trail, with no success. Martin Balsam is also on hand but doesn't have a lot to do other than look grim faced, beautiful Laura Trotter is impressive as the widow of the dead policeman, and Alota Vagina herself, Fabiana Udenio, appears as a small time hoodlum.

DEATH RAGE (1976)-Uncut version, letterboxed, a few scenes in Italian with eng subs. I found Death Rage to be a fun little Euro-crime movie that's much better than it's reputation would suggest (or at least better than many of the reviews I've read). Yul Brynner plays Peter Marciani, an aging hit-man hired to go to Italy to kill a mob boss. At first he refuses until he learns that his intended target is responsible for his brother's death. Along the way, he meets and befriends a young, overly helpful, wannabe mobster and a beautiful showgirl. Can these three pull off the job? Quite simply, Yul Brynner is the man! He brings a certain authenticity and coolness to Marciani and makes most of the film a blast. I bought into his hit-man persona completely. When confronted by two hoods wanting to take him to see their boss, Marciani calmly says "If I were you, I'd shoot." One of the hoods tells Marciani that he's worth more alive. Marciani's response – "If I were you I'd still shoot". How classic is that! Death Rage also features a number of exciting car chases and gun battles in the narrow street of Naples. Barbara Bouchet contributes plenty of nudity!

GIRL FROM TRIESTE (1979)-beautiful widescreen print. What a terrificly perverted part for Ornella Muti, she has lots of full nudity in this morbid film that co-stars ben Gazzara and Mimsy farmer. Muti is excellent in this movie, but it's unfortunate that she really has to struggle here against her own incredible beauty. You really have to suspend your disbelief that you are NOT watching someone who is quite literally one of the most beautiful women in the world in scenes where she has to fake drownings or sit in an outdoor café in a mini-skirt with her legs splayed to get attention from men. (With the average attractive woman this would be believable, but with someone that looks like Muti you would expect a riot, a traffic pile-up, or a line of guys waiting to administer mouth-to-mouth). Her affair with an old codger like Gazarra also strains credibility (the pair were also teamed, even more implausibly, in Marco Ferreti's biopic of poet Charles Bukowski "Tales of Ordinary Madness"). Still Muti turns in a truly superb performance. Gazarra is also more than adequate. Farmer is as irritating as usual, but at least here she's meant to be here.

CANICHE (1978)-In Spanish with english subs. Like BILBAO, CANICHE is disturbing, ugly, dirty, sordid, but also strangely beautiful. Is like poetry extracted from ugliness... It tells the story of 2 brothers, Bernardo (Àngel Jové, the lead from BILBAO) and Eloisa (Consol Tura), who live alone in a huge mansion and as result from an inheritance, begin to hate each other... Their little dog, a white poodle ('caniche' in spanish) becomes the unusual witness of this situation, just like us, and the real lead of the film. An excellent film very similar to BILBAO and an example of how talented but how different director Bigas Luna was in the late 70's. And yes, he was better...His visual expressions are sometimes maybe kitschy but always impress me, like frequently capturing snails, eyes *eye drops scene appears in Angustia as well* almost like Kusturica and his birds, something like personal director's signature.

A MAN CALLED AMEN (1968)-Letterboxed print. Rare Spaghetti western with Giorgio Ardisson, Akim Tamiroff, and Isarco ravioli, directed by Guido Zurli. Amen is hired to find a stolen cache of $1,000,000 in gold coins while all the while he seems protected by a ghost. This little-known Spaghetti Western turned out to be a routine effort all round, but one that is mildly enjoyable nevertheless. It features a nice score and is enlivened by the intermittent appearances of a 'phantom gunman' figure (curiously, also to be found in MATALO! [1970]) and the numerous plot twists at the end. The most renowned actor in the cast is, of course, Akim Tamiroff - playing a tramp/town drunk called Pigsty (although his Italian moniker is literally "Stench"); actually, many of the characters have been given colorful names: Amen, Solitaire, Dean Light, Johnny Siringo, etc. Comedy relief is also present in the form of some over-the-top hard-boiled dialogue (one character is referred to as "mountain of filth", for instance) and the antics (usually subservient but, on occasion, assertive) of the chief villain's meek and long-suffering barber.

MY BROTHER-IN-LAW KILLED MY SISTER (1986)-In French with English subs, letterboxed print. This parody of the detective-story genre merrily detours into spoofing French foibles as well, making it more of an exercise in verbal gymnastics than a narrative with a mission. Esther is a veterinarian who is certain that her sister has been murdered by her brother-in-law. She convinces two members of the Academie Francaise, the prestigious institution that protects the virginity of the French language, to investigate. Both men are enamored of the woman and are quite willing to enter into competition for her favors. As might be expected from academicians of any ilk, they are inept at digging into a murder mystery and bumble their way through one incident after another. Corpses continue to pile up (not in front of the camera, however) while the two men are sidetracked by their interest in language. Given their positions, they do not want that murdered either. Stars Michel Serrault, Juliette Binoche, and Milva.

The police arrive and arrest three of the thugs, but the ringleader–whom Santo identifies as the foreign leader of a drug-smuggling gang–manages to escape, leaving behind a bamboo dagger. [This scene apparently takes place in Mexico] This is the same type of dagger that wealthy explorer Alonso Grijalva is telling a group of friends was used by the Jivaro indians to cut off the heads of their enemies: he shows them a shrunken head to make his point. [don Alonso apparently lives in South America, but this isn't at all clear in the context of the film] Meanwhile, the man who had fought Santo, Tirso, is back in the Amazon jungles. He tries to convince the chief of a tribe of Jivaros to stop going to war with other tribes and instead unite to fight the whites. The Jivaros are the descendants of the Incas, who had their empire stolen by the Spaniards. In revenge, Tirso suggests that they kidnap Mariana, don Alonso's daughter, and sacrifice her to the gods.Mariana receives a large golden amulet in the mail and later, a black orchid and some emeralds turn up. Alonso consults with Professor Castro, who agrees that Mariana has been chosen to be the “Bride of the Sun.” The natives shower her with riches and then, at the full moon, sacrifice her. Castro contacts Santo by radio, but Santo says he has to travel to London and can't arrive for three days.By the time Santo lands his light plane in South America and meets Castro, it's too late: Mariana has been kidnaped, through the treachery of Husca, Alonso's long-time butler who turns out to have been a Jivaro “mole.” Santo, Alonso, Carlos (Mariana's boyfriend), and Prof. Castro lead an expedition to rescue her.

TORMENT OF THE FLESH (1965)-in German with English subs. Directed by Eddy Saller. Starring: Herbert Fux, Hermann Laforet, Hanns Obonya, Peter Janisch. Eddy Saller was nicknamed "The Russ Meyer of Austria", but I think that Saller was a much better director: he directs with guts and comes up with a very atmospheric and well-paced film, not always exciting perhaps, but huge fun. It is only the sequence in the Playboy bar that takes too long. Saller is supported by very well-done b&w cinematography and editing. Those who think that in the 60's Austrian cinema only produced cheap comedies and Heimat films, better watch this film: an outrageous, wonderfully politically incorrect, exploitive and bizarre shocker, a real curiosity made by director Eddy Saller (his first). It concerns a man who kills women because, as his lawyer says, he was not loved by his mother and in his puberty he was dismissed by girls as sexually unattractive; in short: it all broke the poor man's heart. And whenever he meets too inviting women now, showing their attractions, well, you see, it is the urge then, he just cannot control himself; it is, as the title says, the torment of the flesh.

She was once a hooker, but she's his best friend's daughter and besides she's so lovely… It has often been mooted that Ginette Leclerc was a limited actress but nobody in France used to play the bitch-with-an-angel-face as she did. She can act like a bad gal and suddenly turn into a frail human being, longing for love. The scene when her soon-to-be-husband takes her in his arms for the first time is revealing: she seems to need love, tenderness and protection, but when she turns and faces the viewer, her eyes reflect the lie. Another excellent sequence depicts the wedding banquet: The bride, recalling Flaubert's Madame Bovary cannot stand the vulgarity and the crudeness of the people around her.

It's the type of movie that can make an impression on you. Director Robert von Ackeren is a great stylist and has, in many ways, made one of the quintessential 1980s movies: cold, glossy surfaces and sulphurous emotions in a city that looks more like metropolis than modern Berlin, and not much in the way of story, plot or narration.

491 (1964)-In Swedish with English subs, letterboxed print. By the director of I AM CURIOUS YELLOW. Six troubled young boys are to go through a social experiment. They are supposedly doing this out of free will but in fact they have no choice, either the experiment or jail. The person in charge, Lars Lind is a young bourgeois fellow who is repeatedly let down and abused by Leif Nymark. This movie was an absolute bombshell when it opened in 1964. There are some scenes in this movie that were extremely shocking to the average audience of that time, including tacit allusions to sodomy and a scene depicting (out of shot) a dog rape! Apart from that there was the naked portrait of a society in change where young people behave in a way unknown to their parents. This was unnerving, unsettling. But the Problem with the movie is that despite its good intentions it doesn't work. The character of Krister played by Lind is nothing but a caricature. He lacks every trace of credibility. His naivete is just out of this world. Also Vilgot Sjöman's (know as Vilgot Seaman in the States) attacks on the new social experiments is unfounded, superficial and simplistic. '491' is still a movie worth seeing, at least as a historical lesson.

Before he made superior gialli, Crispino tried this first outing in the then-popular western genre. And came up with a winner. In between parody and serious bloodshed, this is an adaptation of the Don Juan mythos featuring interesting ideas, like the subplot about mormons persecuted in the US. The cast is very good - strong actor direction being one of Crispino's forte - and the script keeps things lively. The ending, turning the whole movie into a flash-back, dwells in supernatural territory. With gems like this to be discovered, on might wonder why Italian westerns have such bad press nowadays.

LIBIDOMANIA (1984)-In German with English subs. Bruno Mattei strikes again! Libidomania is great for what it is, an ambitious and exploitive attempt to categorize and critique every manner of paraphilia in graphic detail, but it all has no shock value as most of the movie is comprised of dramatizations of different fetishists in action and different extreme angles on sexuality from around the world. You get some nice gory dramatizations such as a penile dismemberment (a great effect that beats the one in Cannibal Holocaust hands down), a sex-change operation, and a gut-slicing necrophiliac plus a woman wearing a prosthetic penis to stand in for a transsexual. Figure in some sleazy historical scenes like a nun getting head from a bishop, too. At least Mattei keeps it sleazy.There's a definite attempt here to show a little of everything. There's an overused bit of mondo footage of African death rite and cannibalism that Mattei previously tried to insert into his bomb Hell of the Living Dead. The "extreme" makeup effects scenes are well-done and comparable to that snuff film scene in Emanuelle in America. Mattei even interjects a little scat, offal painting, a pairing of an adult baby and a lactating woman, watersports, and bizarre (some look made up!) paraphilias like a pervert who peeps on a woman's pee in a public bathroom and then goes in to have a sniff at her leavings when she's gone.

Once Maciste arrives in the city, he is overpowered by Fazira's personal guard and bewitched with a magical ankle bracelet, which causes him to lose his free will, relegating him to servitude in the mines.

QUEEN MARGOT (1954)-In French with English subs. This is a good movie, and although comparisons with its 1994 successor are inevitable, it wears well on its own and better in some ways. This is old-fashioned French film making, not noticeably different from Hollywood historical epics of the same era w/ the exception of a flash of nudity here and there. It is important to remember that at the time of this film, only Gance (screenplay) was an international legend. Jeanne Moreau is fine as Marguerite de Valois & Françoise Rosay as Catherine de Medicis does a good job of chewing up the scenery. The '54 style potrayal of Henri d'Anjou as a very effeminate homosexual has been proven to be historically inaccurate, but Daniel Ceccaldi is amusing in the part. The acting for Charles IX, De la Mole, Coconnas et al is up to '54 par, acceptable and not terribly detracting from the story

VENGEANCE OF DR MABUSE (1972)-In german with English subs. One of the rarest jess Franco films! Fred Williams, jack taylor Ewa Stromberg, Doctor Mabuse strikes again in this highly-colored movie shot by Jess Franco in the mid-seventies, when he was still comitting marvels. This one has almost everything you can expect from a spanish late night masterpiece : the evil doctor and his mindless Frankenstein-like monster, Monica Swinn as her evil and sexy sidekick, a cameo by a screaming and cigar smoking Franco, some cops dressed like laughable cowboys, a few sexy girls in mini-skirts and the incredible camera angles and locations that has made old Jess famous. It's about doctor Mabuse's evil plans - plans I couldn't understand because the movie is in spanish - and the endeavours of humanity to stop him, Franco-style. Shot in the most unusual and strange locations of Spain, it is a visual treasure and the funny characters are, as always, very parodic. It may last only about an hour, but it will remain in your hearts and minds for a long long time...

ALARUNE (1952)-In German with English subs. Ten minutes longer than US dubbed version! This fascinating German fantasy film stars the legendary Erich von Stroheim as Professor Jacob ten Brinken, a brilliant scientist who has played God and created the world's first test tube baby. Now fully grown, Alraune (Hildegard Knef) is a beautiful but affectless creature whose way with the opposite sex threatens to ensnare the Professor's nephew (a very young looking Carlheinz Bohm). Alraune's amorality--presumably the result of being bred from the egg of a prostitute and the sperm of a murderer--has not been tempered by a spell in convent and now threatens to destroy the family legacy. Though clearly set before World War II, the film reflects concerns about the misuses of science by the Nazi regime, though perhaps the conclusions it reaches are not that far afield from those of Dr. Mengele. Alraune is a missing link between German expressionism and the Italian Gothic cinema of the early 1960s, with a dash of Jean Cocteau thrown in for good measure

BUTTERFLY SOUTH OF E’PAULE (1978)-In French with English subs. This film starts out like a lot of espionage thrillers: an innocent man witnesses a murder and finds himself mixed up in a deadly intrigue of spies and counter-spies. "Un papillon sur l'épaule" works better because it never fully gives up its mystery. We know that something sinister is afoot and we can make some intelligent guesses, but the thing is never spelled out for us. Lino Ventura is like Alice (a paunchy, middle-aged Alice) who tumbles down a rabbit-hole and wakes up in a world that's not quite the same as before, where no-one believes him or can explain what's happening and where innocuous-looking strangers suddenly take on a menacing significance. The white rabbit of this particular looking-glass world is played by Claudine Auger, a slinky spy who keeps whizzing up in a battered car to dispense gnomic advice and warnings. Paul Crauchet, who acted with Ventura nine years earlier in Melville's "L'Armée des ombres", plays a lunatic in pyjamas with an imaginary talking butterfly on his shoulder and a scarecrow in his bed. . The film stars Lino Ventura and was directed by Jacques Deray.

COP OR HOOD ()-In French with English subs. When the local police inspector was found dead in a prostitute's house, police division commissioner Stan Borowitz (Jean-Paul Belmondo) is sent to investigate the situation. Posing as the prostitute's long-lost brother "Antonio Cerruti," he discovers a mare's nest of police corruption. In fact, in this comedy thriller the whole town is corrupt. If they were closely examined, Stan's methods for pursuing this investigation might embarrass the police. For instance, he drives into a criminal's house in a fancy, expensive race car. In another incident, he callously blows up a casino owned by Musard (Georges Geret), one of the town's crime bosses. On that occasion, he first forces Musard to remove his clothes, and the poor criminal watches his casino explode from across the square while standing naked in a phone booth. Meanwhile, Stan seduces the lovely Edmonde (Marie Laforet). This box-office smash was the first of four wildly successful collaborations between Belmondo and director Georges Lautner.

GIRL WITH GOLDEN EYES (1961)-In Italian with English subs, letterboxed print. A bored Parisian rake starts a half-hearted affair with a beautiful and naïve girl met in the street. She is extremely secretive about herself, to the extent of concealing even her name. This, contrasted with her submissiveness, gets on his nerves and makes him behave more and more erratically until he realises he must be in love with her. But by that time a third party makes an unexpected entrance and turns the affair into a tortured love triangle. On the whole it is certainly not original enough to stand as a masterpiece, but the ravishing photography does raise it above the story's limitations. It is basically a plain doomed romance from the 'quality cinema' of the 40s and 50s, treated with the new, more permissive sensibility and aestheticised into some striking images - not the least of them the unforgettable image of Marie Laforêt's sad wistful face.

JOY OF LIVING (1961)-In French with English subs. Rome, 1921. His military service over, the idealistic young man Ulisse enlists in the Italian Fascist Party.  His first mission is to track down a print works that has been making anti-fascist pamphlets. By chance, Ulisse falls upon the offending workshop, but ends up being employed there as an apprentice, so that he can be close to the woman he has fallen in love with, Franca. Just as Ulisse’s real identity is about to be revealed to his employers, the grandfather of the household lets slip that he is in truth a notorious anarchist who may be of great use to their anti-fascist cause. Ulisse, understandably, has other ideas…There is some irony in the fact that René Clément’s only comic film deals with a subject that would appear to be hard to find humour in, namely the origins of Fascism in Italy of the early 1920s.  Clément is following in the footsteps of the great Italian filmmakers who, from the 1940s, have endeavoured to find fun in some very dark subjects, and his style in this film is certainly more redolent of the Italian school of neo-realist filmmaking than conventional French cinema of the period.  Having made an international star of Alain Delon in his previous film, Plein soleil (1960), Clément makes good use of the actor’s talents in this film.

Meanwhile at the ministry of silly facial hair a Scotsman, an Englishman and a Russian listen to bagpipe music and smoke pipes, this little brain trust are a group of high ranking officers apparently and the topic under discussion is the correct temperature at which an Irish coffee should be served, oh and one of our Russian agents has gone missing. Looks like the missing spy, Ingrid, is being held at Stilberg Castle. Lucky for them that’s exactly where Nathalie is about to be shipped so “Nathalie, you must free Ingrid…or kill her!” Sleazy over the top Nazisploitation with Jack taylor and Patrizia Gori. As low budget Nazisploitation goes this one was very entertaining! The sadism was at a minimum relatively speaking, the acting ridiculously over the top; Frau Hortz coming off like an insane evil Lynda Carter Wonder Woman with a whip. The internal politics of a Nazi whorehouse/prison played for laughs almost. However it’s quite an odd experience watching this one directly after Elsa Fraulein SS, Helga She Wolf Of Stilberg & Special Train For Hitler due to Eurocine reusing sets, costumes, locations, vehicles and even whole sequences from those films; in this case the champagne orgy and a few of the kinky encounters from Special Train make an appearance.

THE SUBVERSIVES (1967)-In Italian with English subs. The Taviani brothers are known for their humanistic and "neo-realistic" approach of film-making, using non-professional actors, location shoots, natural lighting and special attention given to "the people" as protagonists. Their cinema can be qualified as "political", since most of their films deal with abuse of power, corruption, poverty, but also suffering. Highly political indeed, "The Subversives" ("I Sovversivi") which the Taviani brothers directed in 1967 is nevertheless quite different from "Padre Padrone" and "La notte di San Lorenzo". The film combines actual footage of a Communist leader's funeral, Palmiero Togliatti (who died in 1964), with the story of four people for whom the death marks a major turning point in their political futures. The film takes an episodic approach to chronicle the different effects the leader's death has upon these people. As the four stories intermingle, we follow Ettore, a Venezuelan radical who abandons the wealthy Italian woman he loves to go back to his country and help his cause, Ludovico, an ailing filmmaker who finds out that art alone is not enough, Giulia, a woman who embarks upon a lesbian affair with a former mistress of her husband (who happens to be a leader of the Italian Communist party), and Ermanno, a philosophy graduate who breaks up with his past.

A VERY CURIOUS GIRL (1969)-In French with English subs. Marie is a young girl living in a shack with a goat and pretty much exploited by the locals in a small town in rural France.  Pretty quickly into the story an event occurs which triggers a whole change-of-life/change-of-attitude for her.  Almost effortlessly she has the ‘major players’ of the village – the mayor, pharmacist, grocer, warden, etc – degenerate into fools who are wrapped around her little finger.  It seems the male population of the town is sex-crazed and Marie uses her body to manipulate all of them (and it’s not only limited to males!).  Starts off dourly and would easily be mistaken for a serious arthouse film for anyone who didn’t stick with it – but as soon as the bumbling, evasive, hypocritical ‘pillars of the community’ enter the picture it’s clear that it’s really a wicked comedy.  The funniest stuff is the way that the dialogue changes gears so rapidly from one line to the next with a character first sounding pious, then horny, then macho, then grovelling, etc.  The characters are so paper-thin that they’re caricatures: ergo, the whole story can be taken as a parable (the original title of the movie refers to another story that we never see, which in turn is supposed to be a distillation of this one, I guess…).

For the most part, the film follows each of Emma's affair to the letter ....Having primarily appeared in sex romps set in the same time frame as Madame Bovary (circa 1850), Edwige Fenech is proves she is capable of carrying a meaty leading role in a costume drama here. Director Hans Schott-Schönbinger also knows how to make the most of this gorgeous woman in front of his camera in nearly every scene and cinematographer Klaus von Rautenfeld photographs the entire film in stunning widescreen format. Of course there is a lot of titillation on show, making this Bovary a strange combination of a chick friendly costume drama with some nudity thrown in for the boyfriends.

The "Frau Wirtin" films were a series of period sex comedies, made in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It is hard to believe, but the literary inspiration to these films really is a song. The films featured a surprisingly large number of established actors in less than establishing performances, and a less than surprisingly large number of less established actresses out of their clothes.

DEATH ON MONTMARTRE (1957)-IN FRENCH WITH ENG SUBS. An art dealer in dire straits (Paul Frankeur, in a rare lead part), after being ripped off by two crooks, one of whom owns a genuine painting by Gauguin while the other is an expert copyist, finds them again and, instead of killing them as he originally intended, joins in their game – with ultimately disastrous results. A very fine noir with no big names (the exception being Annie Girardot, but she was still very young – and pretty – and not a big name then) but a clever script, and efficient direction by Gilles Grangier. All the actors are perfect for their parts, with Frankeur as the guilt-ridden art dealer, still likeable in spite of his crimes, Gianni Esposito as the reluctant, drunken copist and a suitably obnoxious Michel Auclair as the main crook. Look for a young Marcel Bozzuffi in a very small part.

DESIRES (1977)-IN SPANISH WITH ENG SUBS. Rafael Corkidi is a very well know name for having photographed “El topo” and “The Holy Mountain”. “Desires” is his most personal film: an obsessive religious digression, an allegory told through circus images, sexual compulsion, and a very interesting plot deconstruction;all the characters keep switching themselves along a misleading story, through a play between the lines of space and time. Impenetrable and bizarre mobius strip of surrealist scenes…  It's as if someone filmed a Mexican soap episode while under the influence of both Christian guilt and a dose of LSD. The father, and a jaded ex-lover, mixed with scenes of a treatment and burial of a Christ-like figure, a masturbating nun who frequently goes to the toilet, an angel with a whip, a suffering priest, the four horsemen, lots of nudity and artsy representations of lust, strange sets and costumes in a desert or amidst ruins, a group of mean circus performers in the desert drawing the attention of a village girl, and some pretentious narration making poetic statements about sin… The near-plotless, non-linear structure is seemingly supposed to evoke some kind of poetic portrait of desires, sin, lust, passions, religiosity, guilt, suffering…

FRENCH DETECTIVE (1975)-IN FRENCH WITH ENG SUBS, LETTERBOXED PRINT. Awesome French thriller starring Lino ventura, Patrick dewaere, and Francoise Brion. In the French city of Rouen an election is overshadowed by a fight between the supporters of two of the candidates. In the fracas, a man is beaten to death and the killer then shoots a passing police officer.  The latter has time to warn his colleagues that the killer is Portor, a well-known thug whose brother is campaigning on behalf of law-and-order candidate Lardatte.  Commissaire Verjeat’s pursuit of Portor is hampered by Lardatte, for whom he has a personal dislike and misses no opportunity to humiliate. As a result, he finds himself with very little time to capture Portor, since he faces a promotion and a posting outside Rouen, which will take him off the case. Verjeat is certain that this is courtesy of Lardatte and his police contacts.  As if this was not bad enough, his sidekick, the eccentric Inspector Lefevre, implicates them both in a case of police corruption... With its exciting action sequences, compelling plot and stellar cast, headed by two veritable icons of French cinema, it is not hard to see why Adieu, poulet remains one of the most highly regarded polars of the 1970s.  Heavily influenced by American crime-thrillers of the time - notably the Dirty Harry films - the French polar had by this stage acquired much greater realism than in previous decades, which meant far more graphic violence and more overt references to contemporary concerns over police corruption and political interference in the legal system.  The film’s depiction of a incorruptible maverick cop fighting against his superiors, who are all implicated in seedy political intrigue, closely resembles that seen in the second Dirty Harry film, Magnum Force (1973), with the superlative Lino Ventura proving beyond any doubt that he is France’s answer to Clint Eastwood.

A MAN I LIKE (1969)-IN FRENCH WITH ENG SUBS. Directed by Claude Lelouch.  Starring Jean-Paul Belmondo, Annie Girardot , Kaz Gara, Peter Bergman, Farrah Fawcett... This unknown film is a real gem. I wasn't expecting much, since Claude Lelouch has kind of a weak reputation (I do love his version of Les Miserables, though), but, I figured that Jean-Paul Belmondo is always reason enough to see a film. Definitely, he pushes it far beyond what it could have been otherwise, but also helping him is the wonderful performance of Annie Girardot, an actress about whom I know not a thing, and the great but modest direction of Lelouch. The film begins as if it were going to be one of those run-of-the-mill French dramas where married people cheat on each other. After a while, though the two new lovers go on a cross-country trip from L.A. to NYC (although they don't quite make it there in their rented car).

SCARED TO DEATH (1989)-IN SPANISH WITH ENG SUBS. Martial arts instructor and former Chuck Norris student Ruben Gonzalez stars as Ruben Gonzalez, a martial arts instructor whose teenage daughter, during a lover's rendezvous, has been killed by a bear. Her body winds up in the the home of crazed old dandy Nestor, who has mistaken the dead girl for his long lost love, Beatriz. Nestor dresses her in what looks to be a prom dress, complete with tiara, then soliloquizes to her about the greatness of their love while blaring rhapsodic music in his house filled with 99 cent store spray-on cobwebs. Meanwhile, Gonzalez and his hand-picked cadre of martial arts students go in search of the missing girl, but first there's action with bikers at a bar along the way. Then they're butting heads with dirty cop, FBI agent, or Secret Service man (depending on what part of the script he's trying to recall) Lt. Rami Rodriguez, who for some reason pronounces Nestor's name "Nextor." Crazy old Nestor also has an mute, idiot servant who keeps humanoid zombie-thingies ("locos" in the credits) chained-up in the basement. The idiot limps down into the basement now and again to whip them. Soon enough the zombie-thingies have revolted and escaped. When they're not dragging themselves around moaning, they're hacking up families with a chainsaw they've found or engaging in kung-fu with Gonzalez. Of course, the bear has to make a few more killings, too. That is, until his confrontation with Gonzalez. I love this bargain basement movie. The acting ranges from laughably bad to actually good (Carlos Agostí, who plays Nestor, is a veteran Mexican actor. How he made it into this camcorder epic is anyone's guess). And the story is compelling, when it isn't being interrupted by non sequiturs and plot points that never go anywhere (but that's good, too, eh?). As far as I can tell, there's never an explanation for the killer bear. And I can't really figure out what the chainsaw-wielding kung-fu zombie-thingies are supposed to be, and how and why they're even around. There also seems to be a confusion of place in this movie. There's an abandoned house, a hotel, an office, the police/FBI/Secret Service headquarters, and Nestor's house, which I'm guessing are all supposed to be different places, but they seem like one and the same place to me. And I love that when Gonzalez's wife Cynthia packs up the kids and drives from another town in search of her husband, she does so in a white early 60s Cadillac limo. This all takes place in various places around Los Angeles, conveniently renamed Caliston for this film.

Serious mystery fans will probably place this on the same shelf with PLEASE MURDER ME and THE NIGHT WALKER, and it's as clever as either of those gems. I also like the fact that the writers of the film have constructed it in such a way that you really don't know if the victim is even dead until the film's final scene...which is AFTER the "resolution" of the crime! There are nice ironic twists throughout, but in unexpected ways. Overall, a nice little genre film that the serious murder mystery fan is sure to enjoy.

While she is recovering, the only friend Patricia has left in the world, her boss Mr. Goldberg, dies. But every dark cloud has a silver lining as our heroine soon discovers -- Mr. Goldberg has left her half a million dollars. Now rich, Patricia wastes no time in buying a new wardrobe, bleaching her hair blonde, and opening up a strip club where she is the main attraction. She also enlists the help of a cop, a mafioso, and a drag queen to help her track down the rapist/father killer, who Patricia is only able to identify by his muscular build and a large scar on his back. The group scours the streets of New York, perusing bodybuilding gyms for back-scarred men who are then forced at gunpoint to let Patricia feel their scars. And when she's not feeling at scars, Ms. Martinez (who is sometimes also inexplicably called Angela) is either scowling or freaking out screaming at folks or herself in the mirror.

THE TORMENT (1974)-Letterboxed print.  Bradford Dillman, Marina Malfatti and Gig Young star. Halfway between horror and drama, it's one of several Italian films from the 70's dealing with the psychological breakdown of a woman, somehow involving a child. This sub-sub-genre owes its existence to Rosemary's Baby (as does Marina Malfatti's haircut here) but unlike others from the period (Perfume of the Lady in Black, Le Orme), the child here remains unborn (and possibly unreal). Malfatti is an infertile wife with psychic abilities who suddenly believes herself pregnant after witnessing a car crash involving a pregnant woman. Her doctor tells her husband it's all in her mind, however, and the viewer is left wondering if she's going mad. As with Le Orme and Perfume, the exposition here proceeds quite slowly, and this film lacks several of the elements that make those superior. Malfatti and Dillman aren't particularly likable, or believable as a couple, and Gig Young steals the scenes he's in as Dillman's best friend

HELL ON THE BEACH (1966)-In French with eng subs, letterboxed print. Jose Bénazéraf wasn't really making exploitation movies like other people did. It's a thriller with spies and femmes fatales but it's also a strange and abstract object, with references to the Greek mythology and a heavy atmosphere of fate and fatality... Sometimes borderline pompous but actually greatly fun to watch and hey, it still has lots of nudity. Beautiful B&W cinematography as well.

The story begins with Herod (Edmund Purdom) and Antony's shared defeat by Rome (when the two men foolishly decide to form an allegiance and go head to head with the colossal Empire), and ends with Herod's slide into insanity following Christ's death. Throughout, the ruler exhibits utter lunacy, raving constantly and spewing forth torrents of unbridled anger; viewing this film in it's original totalscope quality is truly captivating, enchanting and relentlessly dramatic throughout.

JUDGE AND THE KILLER (1976)-In French with eng subs, letterboxed print. Joseph Bouvier, a former Sergeant in the French military, shoots his beloved and attempts to kill himself. Having survived with two bullets in his brain, he is released from the Dole medical facility, a place of mental and physical filthiness. Then begins a five-year period of wandering on the roads of the South East of France, during which Bouvier rapes and eventually kills two dozen defenseless shepherds and farm servants of both sexes.Depravity and corruption are set against the backdrop of rural 19th century France in this harrowing courtroom drama about a judge who takes on the case of Sgt. Bouvier, an insane criminal who suffered various traumas including rape, skull wounds, a rabid dog attack, and shock therapy before raping and murdering dozens of shepherds. It soon seems, however, that the questionable intentions and methods of Judge Rosseau, who sees the case as a good career move, and the ramifications of the system in which he operates share more in common with Bouvier's deplorable actions than his Honor would like to think. Le Juge et L'Assassin probes a curious relationship between condemner and condemnee. Philippe Noiret plays Rousseau, a French judge who holds the fate of convicted child killer Bouvier (Michel Galabru) in his hands. Should Rousseau decide that Bouvier is insane, the killer will not go prison. As they come to know each other better, both are given the rare opportunity of exploring the vagaries of the human mind. The previously unbendable judge alters several long-held opinions concerning criminals, while Bouvier is for the first time in his life able to articulate the thought processes which motivate his actions. It is clear at times that much of the dialogue in Judge and the Assassin stems from Bertrand Tavernier's own lifelong feelings of loneliness and isolation.

GAME OF CRIME (1964)-In Italian with English subs, letterboxed print. Another one of the rare, early black and white gialli made before the genre had really established itself. A Game of Crime was released not long after the superlative Death on the Fourposter (1964) and even re-uses John Drew Barrymore and Luisa Rivelli, two of the stars from the previous film. But the similarities end there as A Game of Crime turns out to be a rather different sort of thriller altogether. Unlike other early black and white gialli such as Libido (1965) and the aforementioned Death on the Fourposter, A Game of Crime is more traditional and straightforward in its approach – playing out like a thriller in the Hitchcock vein – but there’s enough atmosphere and good twists to make this an enjoyable experience. Certain parts play out like a psychological thriller, with Anna growing increasingly nervous and frightened by having to live in the house where her husband died – a fright that is strengthened by the presence of the monster-brother. As such, the film anticipates the early gialli of Umberto Lenzi in some ways, but there are also touches that seem inspired by contemporary Italian horror films. For example, the large, old Lugani mansion makes a nice, gothic backdrop to the wicked shenanigans while the old, ramshackled wine cellar full of rats comes into play during the memorable climax

THE GHOST BARON (1943)-In French with English subs. (Jean) Cocteau contributed dialogue to The Phantom Baron.... (He) was interested in the film and above all in its atmosphere, which he defined this way: ‘Imagine an old chateau in ruins. A country house, an engagement banquet. Moats, lakes, swamps, dungeons, forests, and moonlight; that’s The Phantom Baron.’ According to his view, the characters ought to identify themselves with these elements of decor and setting, and with these objects; living beings become themselves objects of mystery in this setting predestined for mystery, for unearthly adventure. But the fantastic that permeates the film is not, after all, its center. After the disappearance of Baron Carol (played by Cocteau himself), the crumbling old chateau is succeeded by a manor house inhabited by the baron’s descendants. The story Jean Cocteau was to unfold is a drama of the heart’s first awakenings and uncertainties. Thus he had the happy fortune to meet characters who were waiting for him to endow them with their psychological and dramatic outlines. Starring Alain Cuny and Odette Joyeaux

And, partly because Anne testifies against the accused, the man with icy eyes is found guilty. But soon Eddie realised something wrong with the whole case... First of all, I want to say this film is not particularly bad. Indeed, this one is much better than the director's 1972 Giallo titled SCENES FROM A MURDER. However, this film doesn't seem to be a masterpiece mainly because its latter half is almost exclusively concerned with HOW TO STOP THE WRONG EXECUTION. Consequently, in proportion as the story develops, apparently most important question, namely, WHO IS THE ACTUAL KILLER?, becomes less and less important. Indeed, this film as a whole doesn't seem to be serious about the question.

Great unseen Giallo with a terrific score by Ennio Morricone, nudity from Sydne Rome and a brilliant performance by Comedian Johnny Dorelli in a very serios role. This little gem has been overlooked and underrated by film buffs. Maybe the reason was the mixed nature of the movie itself, somewhere between giallo and Italian social satires of Italian contemporary society. Johnny Dorelli brings in a warm and complex character with who we can easily sympathize, and this gives to the end a terrible turn and a smell of despair about human nature that makes you think about for a long time.

OPERATION EXTERMINATION (1965)-In Italian with English subs, letterboxed print. Fun Eurospy film with Ingrid Schoeller and Alberto Lupo, directed by Umberto lenzi. Two secret agents join forces in Egypt (and later in Switzerland) to locate & destroy an anti-radar device, and retrieve the plans of its design. One is a British male; the other is an American female. Her code name is 008, and, as the title suggests, she is actually the central hero(ine) of this film, quite atypically for its day. The two agents have an equal partnership, but if anyone is closer to the "sidekick" role, it's the man. Ingrid Schoeller plays what is quite possibly the first attempt of international cinema to create a female James Bond-type character: she is beautiful, curvaceous, sweet, intelligent, armed with gadgets, expert with a gun, and can handle herself in a fight without needing a man to rescue her (as she proves in a daring escape from an enemy-riddled beauty saloon). All this, combined with the lively banter between the two leads and the crazy double-twist ending (the first twist is smart; the second nonsensical!), make "A 008: Operazione Sterminio" one of the most enjoyable Eurospy movies of the period.

WITCH IN LOVE (1966)-FINALLY A BEAUTIFUL WIDESCREEN PRINT OF THIS MASTERFUL HORROR FILM BY DAMIANI DAMIANO!! This is an absolute masterpiece of extravagant, sensuous Continental 60s art cinema, and provides an "incendiary" Gothic femme fatale to rival the Hayworths and Gardners of film noir. Nominally a horror film (which only becomes completely apparent during the last reel), it actually fits nicely into that 60s subgenre of manipulative mind games and metaphysical character duality, not unlike Losey's "The Servant" (though it's closer in execution to his elegiac "Eva"). Although it's constantly threatening to unravel under the stress of its own pretensions (as was the fate of many international art films of the time), Damiani is firmly in control as he continues to up the ante with a bacchanalia of outrageously stylish devices, visual metaphors and tactile atmospherics. Schiaffino is one of those classic beauties who seemed to fall out of Italian poplar trees at the time, Johnson is suitably arrogant in his machismo, and the exotic flute-and-bongo score is a retro dream driving the erotic game-playing. Many will find its excesses over-the-top or campy, and it's startlingly misogynist at times, but for those tuned in to the excesses of the 60s, this is a mindbending treat right up to the astonishing but fitting conclusion. Stars Richard Johnson, Rosanna Schiaffino and Gian maria Volonte.

THE 7TH JUROR(1963)-In French with english subs, letterboxed print. « Le 7ème juré » (The 7th Juror) is a great psychological thriller with no hint of comedy, although it was directed by Georges Lautner, of whom this is one of the very best achievement. Bernard Blier is outstanding as the respectable man who kills a woman then is designated as a member of the jury during the trial where an innocent man is accused of his crime. The rest of the cast, including Francis Blanche, Danièle Delorme and Maurice Biraud, is very good too and the direction is faultless. Oh, and let’s not forget some surprising nudity for the time.

ADVENTURES IN MEKONG (1958)-Letterboxed print.  This gritty little tale about greed, gold, and the grueling jungles of South Vietnam borrows elements from Henry Hathaway's "Garden of Evil" and John Huston's "Treasure of the Sierra Madre." French director Jean Bastia and his crew lensed this taut search for buried treasure on location in South Vietnam with the help of the civilian population and the local military. If the production dates are genuine, the French had only recently been booted out of North Vietnam. The authenticity of the surroundings and the novel setting in South East Asia bolsters the credibility of "Les Aventuriers du Mékong." The gorgeous verdant scenery will knock your eyes out and you'll feel yourself sweating it out along with the leads as they venture into unknown territory.

THE GAME (1989)-In Italian with english subs. For me this is Lamberto Bava’s finest tv thriller (part of the ALTA TENSIONE series), mainly thanks to an incredibly intriguing, morbid and thought provoking screenplay by Roberto Gandus (fine-tuned by Giorgio Stegani & Dardano Sacchetti). Featuring the most irritatingly overbearing and subtly menacing children in the annals of the italian genre filmography. Bava jr provides an inspired direction that sustains the high tension promised by the series’ title - tension, that at times reaches the heights of Avati’s LA CASA DALLA FINESTRA CHE RIDONO.

LOVE LETTERS FROM A KILLER (1972)-In Spanish with English subs. A man (José Luis López Vázquez) walks into a bar and shoots four people dead. Next day everybody is talking about the murders. The police know who the killer is and have his photo, but the man himself remains at large. Blanca (Serena Vergano), a lonely librarian, receives a letter from him, declaring his love for her. Apparently he has been a regular at the municipal library, although Blanca denies ever having noticed him. The killer may equally well be dead, a ghost, or a figment of Blanca's imagination. The murders may never have happened. The film seems to be about Blanca's sexual obsessions, but these manifest themselves not surreally, as in Buñuel, for instance, but in a subdued, indirect and psychological manner, so that in the final analysis the objective and the subjective get completely entangled and inseparable. This completely unclassifiable film was produced by Elías Querejeta and photographed by Luis Cuadrado, both regular collaborators of Carlos Saura in that period

And while no one can deny that trading Little John for a eye-patch wearing pirate called One Eye who actually has two good eyes is a monster upgrade, the movie would have been merely been solidly entertaining if it had stuck solely to its "pirates standing in for the Merry Men" angle.  But it in a stroke of either genius or complete tastelessness, this Italian version of Robin Hood (with German film legend and former Tarzan Lex Barker) adds a bit of sauce to the mix by giving us Sweet Pea, a sassy full-figured black woman, prone to singing spirituals and alternately beating on One Eye and declaring her love for him!

TASTE OF VIOLENCE (1961)-In French with English subs, letterboxed print. Directed by Robert Hossein. A revolutionary leader holds up a train to kidnap the daughter of the president wanting to trade her for fifty of his fellow revolutionaries held prisoner by the federal army. Along with two of his lieutenants, he traverses the hostile country to bring the girl to the revolutionary headquarters where very soon the three men fall out... Released in ’61, set in a fictitious Latin American country, and filmed in former Yugoslavia, this film by director/actor/writer Robert Hossein, definitely is a forerunner of the spaghetti western genre. Not only is it a prototype of the so-called Zapata westerns, it is also very interesting in regard to Hossein’s own 'Cemetery without cross', reckoned among the great films of the genre. The Taste of Violence breathes the same melancholic atmosphere as Hossein’s masterpiece. It also reflects a similar pessimistic view on the human condition.(...), Also stars Hossein, Mario Adorf and Giovannia Ralli.

TREASURE OF THE PETRIFIED FOREST (1964)-Letterboxed print. Salvi throws in some of his trademark touches, such as dwarf baiting and some wilfully histrionic acting.  Although it’s all supposedly set in the forest, a large proportion was shot in Cinecitta, and again the direction makes good use of the interiors, creating a heightened sense of unreality through unusual art direction and set design.  Some sequences, with sparse trees shrouded in dry ice, actually have a surprisingly gothic touch, not too different to the type of thing that Mario Bava was shooting at the time.  Unfortunately, though, despite his best efforts, Salvi was dealing with a genre that was already a considerable way past its sell by date and, although it’s better than Sinbad and the Seven Saracens, Salvi’s poorest film, it’s nowhere near as diverting as Vulcan Son of Jupiter or The Seven Tasks of Ali Baba.Gordon Mitchell, in his third film under Salvi’s direction, is good fun as the utterly despicable villain, but possibly the most nuanced performance comes from Luisa Rivelli, who had made her name in a series of b-movies and melodramas throughout the 1950s.  Ivo Payer was a Yugoslavian actor who appeared in a handful of peplums (he was formerly in the Salvi production David and Goliath).  He’s not bad, but his thespian talents skills don’t come near distracting attention from the quite appalling bouffant hairstyle he’s been landed with.

UNDER VIRGO (1973)-In Greek w/subs. Excellent Greek sexploitation film with lots of nudity. One may be culturally shocked to learn that in 1973 Greek men used to pay whores good money mainly to listen to their lifestories and how they ended up on the street… At least “Under Virgo” suggests that it happened all the time. Well, it’s just ridiculous but also a scriptwriter’s trick to start out the episodes. This comico-melodrama follows the life stories of 3 ladies of the night as related to three different listeners by one of the hookers (she always uses other girls’ stories and keeps her own for a special occasion). So we know why they chose this kind of trade, how their first “loves” abandoned them etc etc. For example choosing between prostitution and working in a factory to support her grandpa? That’s an easy choice! Making extra money out of love for her husband who needs an eye operation, that’s chic! Then, there’s also Fate: what can one do after losing one’s virginity to a chair leg (!) in childhood and also happens to live in a Greek village where culture is built around virginity? Too many culture shocks and not much you can do: You just have to be a whore- period

Zorro and three of his bandits crouch in hidden positions in the forest as they lie in wait for unsuspecting nobility to pass by. The warm sun is pleasant and mild, and soon Zorro's men begin to nod off. Zorro, however, remains alert and angrily wakens his men when he sees a horse-drawn carriage rumble down the path. Zorro aims with his Brown Bess and fires at the carriage driver, killing him. The carriage comes to a stop and out rush four men with muskets and swords in their scabbards: D'Artagnan, Porthos, Aramis, and Athos. Zorro steps out into the road with his bandits and begins to announce himself with a swish of his cape when Athos raises his wheel-lock and shoots one of the bandits in the neck, causing red blood to leap into the air and the robber to crumple instantly to the ground. Zorro and his men fire back but the Musketeers wear armor and the bullets bounce off of their breastplates. D'Artagnan shoots another bandit in the stomach and the man drops his musket, grabs his stomach, and lays moaning on the ground. The other bandit takes off running and Zorro disappears into the bushes. D'Artagnan takes out his rapier and quickly slices the wounded bandit's throat before the group pushes after the retreating bandit.

CODE 7 VICTIM 5 (1964)-Letterboxed print. This is a typical Harry Alan Towers production--find an out-of-the-way country where the pound/dollar goes a long way and without powerful unions, hire a lot of locals in small roles, use a lot of free locations to give the film "color," have Towers himself pen a by-the-numbers script over dinner or during a flight. South Africa photographs well (the film was shot by Nicholas Roeg, so it's no surprise), and is so unfamiliar to this American that the background almost becomes a character. The plot is the standard "someone is killing off one by one the members of a group from a previous time" and ex-Nazis are even dragged in. Ronald Fraser (best known in the USA for FATHOM, with Raquel Welch and the late great Tony Franciosa) does a good job as the local police inspector who finds jet-setting detective Barker to be a bit of a pest, but eventually realizes Barker's honesty and professionalism--Fraser and Barker are the perfect foils for each other.

The journalist (doctor's friend) claims they went hunting in the swamps that morning, but the doctor was attacked by an invisible creature who threw him around and eventually tore him to pieces. Although the detective has enough evidence to conclude the murder was committed by some paranormal force, he insists that the doctor was killed by a wild cat.

DAY OF VIOLENCE (1977)-Letterboxed print. A better than average Italian crime thriller for two reasons: firstly the story happens during one day, which creates dramatic tension, and secondly there aren't too many characters to follow. Also the motivations for the protagonists are carefully construed from social and psychological issues such as poverty and masculinity. Apart from all this the film still delivers on the level usually expected from Italian seventies genre films: lots of unnecessary violence, often sexual, and nudity too. Mario Cutini and Maria Pia Conte star.

EASY DEATH IN GHENT (1967)-In French with English subs, letterboxed print. American Teddy Jason, an expert diver/mercenary [played by George Hilton] is hired by a group of revolutionaries from a fictitious North African country, to extract some diamonds from the wreck of a government plane at the bottom of the sea.  Jason is caught by the authorities, but manages to hide the loot just before his arrest.  He's thrown into a prison/labor camp [The mines of paradise] on the other side of the desert and tortured for information on the diamonds hiding place.  With the help of a few prison inmates he manages to affect a daring escape and cross the blazing desert back to Ghentar.  He plans to pick up the loot and take off with it for himself [typical mercenary], but gets caught up in the revolution and helps overthrow the ruling dictator in the process.  Also of special note is the fact that, although all information indicates that this was directed by Leon Klimovsky, apparently Mr George Hilton himself once said in an interview that it was actually directed by Enzo G. Castellari.  I would put my money on Enzo as director for this film.  Anybody familiar with both directors and their styles will quickly identify the Enzo behind the camera here.  Hilton also said that he regretted the fact that this movie did not receive much attention and was not as popular as his other films from the same era.

EYEWITNESS (1990)-In Italian with English subs. This extremely hard to find thriller from Lamberto Bava comes in typical Giallo tradition, except that the identity of the killer is revealed with the first murder scene. The eyewitness of the title is a blind young woman, so she can describe the killer only by sound and smell. The inspector doesn't really trust her and soon suspects her best friend she knows from a community for the handicapped. Meanwhile, the real killer stalks her, but innocent people have to die until she is finally confronted with the maniac. The first half of this stylish film is thrilling, delivering a tense atmosphere that keeps one on the edge of the seat. The second half, however, somehow loses track and becomes a bit overlong, including an unnecessary affair between the blind woman and the inspector. The climax, on the other hand, happens too fast to grip the viewer's attention. Barbara Cupisti of "Stagefright" fame gives a solid performance as the title character, and Simon Boswell's sound track is cool as usual. Lamberto Bava used some of the plot elements of "Testimone Oculare" again in his superior and last Giallo until now, "Body Puzzle" aka "Misteria" (1992).

The film is an intriguing mix of peplum and sci-fi: I purposefully watched it and the similar (and contemporaneous) L'ATLANTIDE on consecutive days but, in the long run, this is the one to blend the two more successfully (or, if you like, outrageously) by way of imaginative (if clearly cheap i.e. mostly model and matte shots!) and atmospherically-lit sets a' la the work of Mario Bava, weird (and curiously baggy) costumes, and even odd-shaped (to say nothing of unwieldy) weaponry; incidentally, in the opening text scroll, we are told that Metropolis is just another name for Atlantis!

After he’s been raised in an orphanage then sent to fight in WW1, he comes back to his village, determined to discover the truth. This is one of a handful of movies by Georges Lautner which are not comedies. And I’m happy to report that it’s very good. Half period thriller, half melodrama, it had a great script, atmosphere and direction. As for the cast, it’s top notch. Patrick Bruel is an insufferable singer, in my opinion, but a very good actor and, here, he gives a lot of humanity to his character.

OLD SHATTERHAND (1964)-In german with English subs, letterboxed print. Another adventure of the two friends-Winnetou and Old Shatterhand.Lot of battle scenes including a spectacular indian-tomahawk fight. Renegades trying to get the army to abandon their fort get the Indians addicted to whiskey, then convince them to attack and drive out the soldiers. Stars Lex barker, Pierre Brice, Guy Madison, and dalia lavi. To my mind, it s the best movie about Winnetou. It's less romantic than Harald Reinls films about Winnetou. It's more realistic. But it is unforgettable. Pierre Brice's Winnetou is fascinating. It's simple, but noble and very convincing. Especially the scene in which he find his dead son Tujunga, is very touching. His antagonists are strong characters. Guy Madison, Rik Battaglia Mirko Ellis. Sam Hawkens (Ralf Wolter) is a vivid character as always. Daliah Lavi is exotic as Paloma.

PONTIUS PILATE (1962)-Letterboxed print. Uncut version with extra scenes subtitled in English. I finally scored an English language copy of this interesting Italian sword-and-sandal style depiction of the life and times of Jesus, focusing on the career of Pontius Pilate, played by legendary French actor Jean Marais (Cocteau's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST). I previously had a Spanish language version, but the dubbing sounded like it was recorded in a radio station last week and there were virtually no sound effects. This original English version is MUCH more enjoyable, with both Basil Rathbone and John Drew Barrymore (as Judas, not as Jesus) doing their own voices in the dubbing. The story is structured with a wrap-around sequence where Pilate is on trial in front of Caesar, and Pilate recounts the events of his life.

THE SAVIOUR (1971)-In French with English subs, letterboxed print. Extremely controversial film with a ton of nudity. Acclaimed writer Michel Mardore made his directorial début with this crude but chillingly effective portrayal of Faustian corruption of innocence.  Summer, 1943.  Nanette is a solitary 14-year old girl whose family owns a farm in a remote region of rural France.  One day, she encounters a handsome young man who has suffered a slight injury to his foot.  Named Claude, he reveals that he is an English soldier and appeals to Nanette to shelter him from the Nazis.  Although she has been brought up to hate the English (her family are staunch Pétain supporters), Nanette takes him to her father’s farm and finds him a hiding place in a disused attic.  Whilst he is recovering, Nanette brings him food and keeps him amused. In no time, Nanette realizes that she is in love with Claude, but he is insistent that he must find a French resistance group.  Reluctantly, Nanette asks around the village and finds various contacts for Claude...

THE SILK WORM (1973)-In Italian with English subs, letterboxed print . Rare Giallo starring George Hilton, Nadja Tiller and Evi Miranda, and Guy Madison. Esmeralda (Nadja Tiller), is obviously a temperamental lady. Before the credits have rolled she is shown harassing an ex-lover, Didier (George Hilton), who is busily in an embrace with a scantily clad lady-friend. A French singer living beside the Italian coastline, she has a taste for younger men, and makes a habit of picking up Lotharios in local nightclubs (her preferred choice obviously being those with the most appalling dance technique). This proves to be unwise when her latest conquest, a student and gigolo called Costas Mikeilis (Carlos de Castro), seemingly pilfers her valuable stash of jewelry. However, could it be that someone is using him as a convenient scapegoat; he's nowhere to be found, and the only clue as to his whereabouts is a jumper with a bullet-hole in its back? Besides this, there are plenty of other likely suspects. In fact, as well as the aforementioned Didier, virtually all of Esmerelda's regular contacts seem to be of a distinctly untrustworthy bent. They include: her sister, Yvonne (Evi Marandi), a dolly-bird with a taste for the high life; Planget (Mario Feliciani), a lawyer who's simply too dour to be true; Marcelle (Evi Rigano), her homely secretary; and, last but not least, Robert (Guy Madison), a charismatic old flame whose has made an unlikely 'chance' reappearance.

Perhaps a little over-ambitious for the casual audience unfamiliar with the Italian world of entertainment and politics, La Terrazza involves a total of eight main protagonists and how they have changed or are changing. All eight are sitting on a terrace talking, while flashbacks and flash forwards fill in their past, present, and future relationships. Enrico (Jean-Louis Tritignant) is a burnt-out screenwriter, Amedeo (Ugo Tognazzi) is a self-made producer, Mario (Vittorio Gassman) is a communist member of parliament who is having an affair with the married Giovanna (Stefania Sandrelli) and is otherwise having a hard time trying to tow the tough, virtuous line the party demands. Giovanna, as well as the other women on the terrace, have all the spirit of people looking forward to the future while the men have been there and found it wanting.

WEB OF THE SPIDER (1971)-Finally, an uncut 107 minute version letterboxed, with English subs !  In this remake of his own La Danza Macabra, director Antonio Margheriti casts Anthony Franciosa as writer Alan Foster, who accepts a bet from Edgar Allan Poe (Klaus Kinski) and his friend Thomas Blackwood (Enrico Osterman). No one has ever survived a night in Blackwood's castle, but the skeptical Foster gladly accepts the dare. The castle is striking and scary, which soon begins to affect Foster's mind.  This is an atmospheric film, full of crypts, skulls and mist, and Margheriti's direction is assured. The acting is solid all around, with a fine supporting cast including Peter Carsten, Raf Baldassare, and Silvano Tranquilli, though fans of the original might miss Barbara Steele just a little. Overall, this is a worthy remake with some spooky moments and a well-written script by Bruno Corbucci and Giovanni Grimaldi. The music was composed by the prolific Riz Ortolani.

CAPTAIN BLOOD (1960)-In French with English subtitles, letterboxed print. Good swashbuckler set in France by the time King Louis XIII was just a teenager. It seems that nobody wants to see him sitting on the throne, including his lovely mother. But there is a loyal nobleman who will fight bravely to put things in order. Legendary French actor Jean Marais is a bit too old to play the hero but he tries hard and really does a good job. As the comic relief, comedian Bourvil plays the street artist who helps Marais in his mission. Fencing and action sequences don't look as great as in Errol Flynn's classics but the old castles are real and "Le Capitan" provides a good fun for its audience. By the way, English title "Captain Blood" makes no sense; this captain has no relation neither to 1935 Hollywood classic nor to Rafael Sabatini's novel (this one is based on Michel Zévaco's histories)

INNOCENCE AND DESIRE (1974)-
Yet another Commedia All' Italiana in which a gorgeous newlywed seduces her virginal stepson; like similar entries in the distinctly Sicilian genre I recently watched, however, this one fizzles out after a promising (and, in its case, consistently funny) first half. Still, the oversexed antics of Vittorio Caprioli and, especially, Lionel Stander keep one watching - as does the overeating routine of the former's chubby son. 'Dirty Old Man' Stander's hard-on incident (with resulting scruffy hairdo) and the virginal son's late-night tryst with the local big-breasted momma are the film's tasteless highlights. Besides, the satirical look on seminary priests in the film's initial stages verges on the heretical - as it depicts them watching porn mags, touching one another in class, etc. Edwige Fenech looks good in the nude, of course, but she plays a largely unsympathetic character here - but, then, the novice stepson doesn't exactly win audience sympathy either (rather incongruously, he keeps score of his father's hit-and-miss bedtime romps). The film features a nice jovial score - pretty much the norm with this type of film (though it does turn kind of serious towards the end, with the spiritual/carnal conflicts afflicting the boy). Dallamano is another of the "jack-of-all-genres" Italian film-makers, having previously dabbled in Spaghetti Westerns, Gialli and Poliziotteschi and, although I've only watched a couple of his other films myself (see BANDIDOS above), I'd say he usually turned out better movies than this one here.

RIFIFI IN THE CITY (1963)-In Spanish with English subs, letterboxed print.Excellent jess Franco spy film! This movie in crisp, expertly lighted black and white has not one boring second. It may not be the greatest piece of cinematic art, but there is a lot of artistic ambition on display so that the movie may well suck you in for the odd 90 minutes. The title is a rip off from Jules Dassin's masterpiece Rififi Chez les Hommes. The main villain here is none other than Belgian character actor Jean Servais who played the top gangster in the original Rififi. The story line reminded me more of Dashiell Hammett's The Glass Key: The Servais character is a gangster and night club owner who also runs for senator. The political campaign takes up quite some time, with a huge mass of Servais posters in the streets, a propaganda march in a public space, a full fledged political speech and Servais kissing an old woman and later complaining to his aides that she smelled of onions. A police informer and ladies man close to the Servais character was killed (he is not deposited on the steps of a police station but thrown through the window into a police man's private residence – which might give an idea of the degree of violence dealt out here) and it is basically about the search of the killer and a succession of further killings to avenge that death. The negative nature of politics in general takes quite a lot of space which always surprises me a little in movies that were apparently made in Spain during the Franco regime. Besides Servais there are a lot of really picturesque character actors of both sexes on display.

A GORGEOUS GIRL LIKE ME (1972)-In French with eng subs. Although I usually hate Truffaut movies, which I find boring, and the way he directs actors or, better still, non-actors such as Jean-Pierre Léaud, I just love this one. Since I’ve heard some serious Truffaut lovers revile it, calling it the one mistake in an otherwise great career, I think you can safely assume that it’s different. It’s a comedy, for one thing, and a very funny one. Bernadette Lafont, at her sexiest, plays an amoral, foul-mouthed young woman who sleeps and murders her way to wealth and fame. The way she manipulates men in order to achieve her ends has to make you laugh. The men, by the way, are all great : Charles Denner, Philippe Léotard, Claude Brasseur, Guy Marchand and then unknown André Dussolier all fall for beautiful Camille Bliss (of all names) and are ultimately ruined by her (those who survive). The movie is as amoral as its character, which is kind of refreshing, and we can’t help but root for Camille while she takes advantage of bastards or morons in order to get rich. Oh, and did I mention that Bernadette Lafont flashes her boobs in this one ?

While filming this movie Spain finally removed their no porn policy so Franco went and shot some hardcore scenes making this the countries first (legal) porno. To call this a porno is pretty unfair and takes away from the film because the added scenes are really just there to extend the already there sex scenes. Lilian (Katja Bienert) is found in the desert, near death but when she awakens she tells her savior (Robert Foster) of the hell house she escaped from. She was being held captive by a couple (Emilio Linder, Lina Romay) who ran a brothel and forced her into various sexual acts. In the end, this film is basically about child abuse and the label of being the first Spanish porno is probably going to keep most people away from watching it, which is a shame. The cinematography is top notch, the music score by Pablo Villa is excellent and Franco wonderfully captures that dreamlike nature that only he can build. This was my first time seeing 17-year-old Katja Bienert and she was very good in the role, perfectly capturing the innocence of her character and the eventual innocence lost

MISSION STARDUST (1967)-Letterboxed print. Awesome widescreen version! An exploratory moon flight goes awry when a beautiful alien (Essy Persson) detours the Stardust ship to help her sick shipmate and repair their damaged mothership.  Unknown to the crews of the alien and terrestrial ships, the true reason for the flight is for valuable minerals on the moon.  This fact is not unknown to the criminal master mind, Mr. Arkin (Pinkas Braun), who plants a spy on the Stardust to try to cash in on the rich mineral stores of the moon and causes quite a few problems for our space adventurers. The plot is complicated by the fact that the alien race is dying and needs an injection of fresh DNA from a more virile, primitive race.  Major Perry Rhodan (Lang Jeffries) is only too eager to provide that injection.  Lasers, robots, African military, force fields, tractor beams, impostor doctors and nurses, and bodies flying into the void of space all compound to make this an interesting Earth space adventure culminating in the salvation of a race.  An excellent soundtrack rounds out this late 60's Italian Sci-Fi extravaganza.

TOWER OF THE SCREAMING VIRGINS (1968)-Uncut and letterboxed. Forget that shitty Sinister Cinema print, this one is pristine! Cast (in credits order): Teri Tordai ... Königin Marguerite de Bourgogne, Jean Piat ... Buridan,  Uschi Glas ... Blanche du Bois. This film is a crackerjack, at times rivetingly atmospheric con job of a mishmash of a film that defies convention so much that it is pimped as something it really isn't. The title and opening 10 minutes or so promise a sort of Edgar Wallace-like horror thriller about young men lured to their doom in a forbidden tower somewhere in France. There are hooded assassins, some surprisingly gory deaths, a bit of female nudity, and then the film shifts gears to become a swashbuckler right out of Alexandre Dumas -- who gets a writing credit -- concerning "The Hero of the Flanders Campaign" who has come back from chasing maidens around the countryside to engage in derring-do, righting wrongs, making the ladies swoon & the other swordsmen salute his valor, and above all serve his King

VALERIA INSIDE AND OUT (1974)-In Italian with eng subs. Stars Barbara Bouchet and Erna Schuerer!  The story of a young, beautiful and very frustrated woman who is married to a famous choreographer in the 70's Italy. She has everything material she wants, clothes, a fancy home, jewelry, servants, except one thing: her husband refuses to have sex with her because she wants to get pregnant and have a child. Her husband does not want to have children because he feels they'd be too much responsibility and will interfere with his career and, and since they live in catholic Italy, having an abortion or other type of contraceptive measures is unthinkable. So she goes out, gets a job and does what comes naturally for a young, beautiful woman: she becomes extremely promiscuous and has sex with every man she comes in contact with, in just about every location imaginable. But there is hell to pay when her husband finds out that she's cheating on him, and her punishment is something worse than death. All this happens in about the first third of the movie. I liked the direction and editing, but the acting is what makes this movie worth watching.

VENGEANCE IS MINE (1968)-Uncut and letterboxed. Released here as A BULLET FOR SANDOVAL and butchered by 15 minutes of edits, this is the fully restored version! Cast: George Hilton (Corporal John Warner), Ernest Borgnine (Don Pedro Sandoval), Alberto de Mendoza (Lucky Boy), Leo Anchóriz (Friar/Father Converso), Annabella Incontrera (Carol Day). During the Civil War a Confederate soldier (Hilton) becomes a deserter when he wants to be with his fiancée, who’s about to have their baby. When he arrives at her parental home the girl has died and he is told to leave the premises by her Mexican father Don Pedro Sandoval(Borgnine). A cholera epidemic has broken out and when farmers refuse to give milk to the baby, Hilton loses his child as well. Outraged, he assembles a marauding mob and starts terrorizing the surroundings in his thirst for revenge on Sandoval. With a Spanish director and a predominantly Spanish and Latin American cast, the film is often closer to a classic Spanish drama about redemption than a spaghetti western about revenge. Rather episodic and sometimes confusing, it still is an interesting film, with a powerful opening and a bizarre conclusion, set in and around a bullring. Casting for this production was a bit odd; Borgnine, virtually the only American in the cast, plays a Mexican, while most American characters are played by Spanish and Latin American actors. (A Bullet for Sandoval) is a film with a genuinely dramatic narrative which, in a genre often dominated by action for action's sake, is refreshing and worthy of support.

Released on the heels of EYES WITHOUT A FACE, ATOM AGE VAMPIRE re-uses much of that film's themes, with a healthy helping of DR. JEKYLL AND MR.

Nils is getting more and more obsessed with his peeping tom activities and slowly reveals the dark secret of his neighbor.

SINS ON THE BEACH (1964)-In French with eng subs.  With L’Eternite Pour Nous (Sin on the Beach) in 1961, Bénazéraf became one of the very first Europeans to write, produce, and direct his own films.  But even then he wasn’t entirely free from the sort of petty interference that so exasperates him.  The distributor found the title “too literary” and suggested Le Cri de la chair (The Cry of the Flesh).  Bénazéraf said, “Well, if you want…but why not My Grandfather’s Bollocks!”…Shot in twelve days on a ridiculously low budget, now the film can be seen as a sort of classic of the genre, largely created by its own success, of film set by the beach, illuminated by the bright summer sun and with a plot that allows lots of female flesh to be put on display.  In other words, L’eternite Pour Nous is the first real French -or European- piece of softcore porn.  Like all Bénazéraf’s films, its aim is to show the subversive nature of the erotic.  How sexual desire breaks down the rational, conforming shells we try to construct around ourselves.  For Bénazéraf eroticism is revolutionary. “In bourgeois society eroticsm is a form of anarchy.”  The structure of his films shows this, with their tense claustrophobic scenarios that suddenly explode into sexual life.  His purpose is always to provoke this reaction in the viewer.  As Paul-Herve Mathis writes : “His films exist to give a hard-on.  The praise depends upons the size."

ADORABLE LIAR (1962)-In French with english subs, letterboxed print. Juliette(Marina Vlady) is a young woman who just can’t help lying. She lies to her sister, Sophie, to Sophie’s fiancé Martin, and to all the men she attracts with her womanly charms. But when she falls for an older man, a 40-year old lawyer, her reputation as a liar precedes her and she cannot convince him that he really does love him. This light romantic comedy has the allure and feel of New Wave cinema but appears pretty inconsequential besides the works of the masters such as Truffaut and Godard. The film alternates between youthful exuberance, passionate romance and dark film policier without being convincing or satisfying in either mode. Still, Marina Vlady is delightful as the compulsive liar who gets hoist by her own mendacious petard and the film makes a valid statement about the nature of human relationships.

AGOSTINO (1962)-In Italian with english subs, letterboxed print. To call it a strange movie would be an understatement.   While there are certainly some other disturbing undertones in this one, the relationship between the mother and her son struck me as very disturbing.    The movie, directed by Mauro Bolognini,  features Ingrid Thulin who has a very long list of credits to her name. A radiant Ingrid Thulin escapes from Scandinavian gloom and into sunnier climes in this sensuous, if disturbing, erotic drama set in Venice. As the frivolous mother of a troubled teenage boy, she is a walking Oedipus complex in designer gowns (and a warm-up for more celebrated 'monster mother' roles in Night Games and The Damned). She dominates this film with her usual minimum of effort, no matter that she spends so much of it off-screen - in the arms of a dashing gigolo played by John Saxon.

UNCANNY TALES (1932)-In german with english subs. This is probably the closest the Weimar cinema ever came to the style and humor of the Universal horror classics. Captivating, stylish, over the top for sure, and a great role for 'Golem' Wegener. Also known as Unholy Tales, the German-made Tales of the Uncanny is a talking-picture homage to the impressionistic "nightmare" films of the German silent cinema. In the manner of the later Dead of Night [UK] [1945], several horror stories are linked together with a central set of characters. Paul Wegener stars as a mad doctor who murders his wife and walls her up in the basement, a la Poe's The Black Cat. He runs from the authorities with a reporter in pursuit; their flight leads them to a brace of additional gory episodes. A brief sojourn in a mental institution develops into an update of Poe's The System of Dr. Tarr and Professor Feather, as Wegener locks up the real doctors and permits the lunatics to run wild. After this escapade, the reporter catches up with Wegener at a curious club where the members murder one another--a variation on Robert Louis Stevenson's The Suicide Club. The film, which succeeds as it was intended, as a parody of the golden age of German expressionist cinema (in particularly Paul Leni's Waxworks [Germany] [1924]), turns out to be a surprisingly good black comedy with lots of tongue in cheek moments, helped by the presence of Wegener, himself the star of several of the genre's high points, including The Golem [Fragment][German Silent] [1914], The Golem (Progenitor to "Frankenstein")[1920] and Alraune aka Mandrake (Brigitte Helm, Paul Wegener) [German Silent] [1928], sending himself up.

7 PISTOLS FOR TIMOTHY (1966)- LETTERBOXED PRINT. Errol's son Sean Flynn plays Timothy, a young lawyer who inherits a gold mine. The bandit Rodriguez ( played by Fernando Sancho) tries to get hold of the mine by killing Timothy, but soon finds Timothy is not alone. Five experienced fighters teach the young man everything he needs to know about riding, shooting and drinking (!), and with the help of a silent stranger, they become "seven magnificent guns" ("Sette magnifiche pistole") to fight the bandits. "I never get into trouble with the law - I am the law!", Rodriguez/Sancho once exclaims, and his oh-so typical role is pure bliss. The education of a greenhorn to turn him into a real westerner is hardly a new story, but told with enthusiasm. Even if the picture is flawed, obviously made with a low budget and suffering from lack of originality, it is surprisingly entertaining.

EROS AND PERVERSION (1979)-IN ITALIAN WITH ENG SUBS. A middle aged man with a peeping fetish lets his fantasies run wild. Eros Perversions was co-directed by  Luigi Batzella (Nude for Satan,  SS Hell Camp) and Derek Ford, who is most known for co-writing the screenplay for Corruption. Not being familiar with the film’s that Derek Ford directed. I would be inclined to say that the debauchery that appears on screen are more in line with the  Luigi Batzella film’s that I have seen. The score for Eros Perversions was composed by Fabio Frizzi, who is most known for his collaborations with director Lucio Fulci (most notably The Beyond). In many ways his score for Eros Perversions is very similar vibe wise to the score that he composed for The Real Emanuelle. The plot is kept simple as it is really nothing more than a series of erotica themed segments in which the film’s protagonist a middle age man with a pepping fetish who is superbly portrayed by Enzo Monteduro (The Hot Nights of Caligula).He brings the right amount of absurdity to the events which unfold in this film. And while there are plenty of naked women on display and elements commonly associated with erotica. The tone of the film is absolutely anchored in fantasy and played for laughs, not arousal. Outside of the film’s protagonist, the remaining characters are nothing more than mere props.

THE MAGNIFICENT ADVENTURER (1963)-LETTERBOXED PRINT. Director: Riccardo Freda, Cast: Brett Halsey, Françoise Fabian, Claudia Mori. This historical war drama follows the command of 16th-century artist Benvenuto Cellini as he and his troops defend Rome against the attack of Charles V and his armies. An above-average "Euro-Cult" epic which also passes for a serviceable biopic of celebrated Renaissance-era artist Benvenuto Cellini (played by American Brett Halsey in one of his better showcases). Like THE BARBARIANS (1953), this film depicts the sacking of Rome and, in fact, here we are shown how he is asked by the Pope himself (Bernard Blier) – countering a fraud charge into the bargain – to lead the resistance! Of course, he also comes off as an unrepentant ladies' man – with jilted suitors being even ready to die for him – and whose charm affects tavern wenches (represented by spirited Claudia Mori aka Mrs. Adriano Celentano) and noblewomen (like Francoise Fabian, rather staid but undeniably lovely) equally. The latter is the neglected (and, typically, much younger) wife of a dullard engulfed in researching his eminent heredity…which our hero purports to take an earnest interest in so as to get at the lady(!), though he eventually ends up with the more down-to-earth of the two mentioned females. The narrative actually begins in his native city of Florence – where Cellini wins a prize judged and distributed during an audience before the king (while taking his first-ever bath!) for a gold-laden model. However, rivals accuse him of cheating in this case as well and this leads first to a brawl and eventually the destruction-by-fire of the sculptor's studio (and with it a large statue of Perseus triumphing over the Medusa he had intended dedicating to the Italian royal)!

OUR AGENT IN CASABLANCA (1966)-LETTERBOXED PRINT. American agent Brian Kerwin is sent to Casablanca to locate a missing dossier which can be used to blackmail an important politician. Several parties are interested in it - but who stole it, and where is it now? Kerwin is played by Lang Jeffries, who is a better actor than most of his competitors in this genre (notice the scene where he shows genuine sadness over the death of his female assistant). The women in "Our Man In Casablanca" are given plot-related roles, and are not used as mere eye-candy. And there are some classic genre touches, like echoing footsteps in the middle of a quiet night, and a villain with a special weapon (this time, a literally "electrifying" right hand). It's a technically well-done film, but somehow it's also quite tiresome. An example of this is the sequence where a car with Kerwin and a woman is being pursued by a plane spraying DDT on them. This is an ambitious sequence for the kind of budget these movies usually have, and it's pulled off well, but then it goes on so long that the viewer starts losing interest.

The plot: A young woman leaves boarding school and returns to her late mother's estate. The official explanation of her death was suicide, but suspicions mount when she learns that her stepfather has been having an affair with the deceased woman's friend (Neri). The young woman is heir to the bulk of the dead woman's fortune, so the stepfather and his lover plot to eliminate the young woman... but she is far more cunning than she seems. Most fans of the '70s giallo may find SMILE BEFORE DEATH to be slow and lacking in murder sequences (the majority of giallo enthusiasts seem to think these films should all play like Argento's DEEP RED), and while this film is admittedly less harsh than other Italian thrillers of the period, it's quite a ride, boasting excellent performances, a compelling script and lush cinematography. It owes a great deal more to the gialli of the late '60s (particularly the work of Umberto Lenzi, e.g. ORGASMO and SO SWEET SO PERVERSE) than it does to Argento's work; in fact, Amadio's gialli (few that they are) tend to play more like the Italian pulp cinema of the late '60s (even his SO YOUNG, SO LOVELY, SO VICIOUS felt like something out of late '60s Italy, despite having been made in '77). I'm not sure I'd recommend SMILE BEFORE DEATH to those who crave black-clad maniacs and bloody throat wounds in their gialli, but those who adore the sub-genre's earlier efforts (e.g. A BLACK VEIL FOR LISA, TOP SENSATION) won't want to pass this one up. It's exceptional in every way.

STUNTMAN (1969)- Director: Marcello Baldi, Cast:Robert Viharo, Gina Lollobrigida, and Marisa Mell.  Contains a heavy dose of buffoonery it still boasts some nice cars chase and also what must be one of Marisa Mell's sexiest roles! Worth a download for her striptease...and yes she does have nude scenes! a diverting, strictly B movie. Cutting corners doesn't ruin it entirely, but certainly reduces its appeal.Holding up the A-list is Gina Lollobrigida, looking radiant in a role that pokes fun at Zsa Zsa Gabor and many other jet setting femmes (even Liz Taylor) who are serial marriage hounds. Gina's on her seventh hubby, grabbing a doddering, wheel-chair-bound millionaire, while her boyfriend, title hero Johnny (Robert Viharo) rues the fact that he doesn't have enough coin to win Gina's heart. Johnny is famous enough to have teenyboppers seeking his autograph as a daredevil movie stuntman. What makes the film work, and also makes the viewer wish more quality had been pumped into the project, is the clever gimmick of integrating Johnny's stunt prowess into his real-life situations. There are scenes of movie stunts being shot, but the lion's share of the impressive action footage (staged by Europe's best, Remy Julienne) is not on a movie set. Set in France for no obvious reason (this is an Italian production in nearly all respects), story concerns Johnny getting caught up with international thieves, played in cartoonish fashion, all seeking a valuable objet d'art. Utterly scrumptious Marisa Mell (in perhaps her most glamorous movie styling) is the femme fatale, providing quality nude scenes along the way, and keeping one guessing as to her true motives. The wonderful French New Wave actress Marie Dubois joins the fray later on as perhaps the film's most level-headed character, looking great and natural no matter how nonsensical the action escalates around her. Gina is brought back into the picture in the final reel for a satisfying and quite clever ending and twist. The fast & furious action and slapstick is well-staged by journeyman director Marcello Baldi, but he clearly is a C-level talent, here outstripping his usual mediocrity in a B venue. But what if this had been an A picture? Blake Edwards cranked out many a super-production (think PINK PANTHER as far back as '63) with less going for him, and clearly could have hit this one out of the ballpark. Even Richard Rush's classic THE STUNT MAN made a decade later, for all its quirkiness could have benefited from some of the plot gimmicks Baldi used.

TAMANGO (1959)-IN FRENCH WITH ENG SUBS, LETTERBOXED PRINT. TAMANGO is what Spielberg might have fashioned out of AMISTAD if he’d ditched all the boring legal stuff and stuck to what had been happening on board the ship – Curt Jurgens plays the captain of the Esperanza, taking his cargo of captured slaves from Guinea to Cuba.  Accompanying him on board is a hottie named Aiche (Dorothy Dandridge, who found fame in the lead roles of CARMEN JONES and PORGY AND BESS, and is even sexier here speaking in French), who has become fluent in French over the many years she’s been, ahem, romantically involved with the Captain (their affair, which is both out of wedlock AND interracial, was the reason this film was banned in the US).  Aiche is playing along in hopes of getting a piece of paper that will grant her freedom; the latest shipment of slaves have their own ideas about freedom though, and they’re not going to wait until the ship makes landfall to try for it. Set entirely at sea, to really emphasize the point that these slaves (and we, the audience) have nowhere to run and nowhere to escape to, TAMANGO keeps notching up the repression and sultry heat until it’s clear that it can only end in violence.  Director John Berry was blacklisted as a result of all that HUAC hoo-hah and ended up making films in France and other parts of Europe.  This French-Italian production is one of them.  TAMANGO is still a lost film in the home video world, so this project is my effort to help put it “out there” for people to see, because, you know, it’s a cool little film that’s been undeservedly forgotten.

ECCE HOMO (1968)-In Italian with english subs, letterboxed print. Starring Irene Papas, Philipe Leroy, Gabriele Tinti, and Frank Wolff. Among the debris of an atomic war, Jean, Anna and their son Patrick, a small family, believe that they're the only survivors of the human kind. They have choosen a caravan parked on a beach near a dead city as their house: the sea gives them a lot of food and the city all the needed furnishings. Days are passing with a strange peaceful resignation until two new survivors, Len the soldier and Quentin the highbrow, appear. Spying on the behaviour and the talks of the couple, the newcomers realize that Jean, clearly hostile to them, became impotente because of radiations and so Quentin starts to consider Anna as a real opportunity to perpetuate the human kind. What's a moral duty for a highbrow, it's a instinctive and violent desire for the soldier. Len possesses the woman and after killing Jean drives his mate out plotting his abandonment, but he also gets killed during a violent altercation. When even Anna, panic-stricken, commits suicide, only Quentin and the little Patrick finally stay on the beach. The dramatic experience of the four adults and the boy symbolizes the ultimate possible finishing line of the human kind. The soldier and the highbrow are the two faces of the same crazy progress which has led to apocalypse; the man sexually humiliated is a remain of a decadent society, spiritually weak and phisically become poor; the boy is the innocence trampled by the choices of men; the woman, the motivating factor of a violence rediscovered as an universal category.

Recommended to all followers of Odysseus' ever returning. In all honesty, this series is as much a classic (as television goes) as the original poem is to the world's literature. Far from being crassly exploitative, it is a beautiful and respectful rendering of one of the western culture's defining texts.

It's not long before she has become the victim of a series of attacks, and after becoming involved with a local man; it turns out that she is unwittingly carrying around evidence of an international crime network.

THE BATTLE OF THE DAMNED (1969)-Letterboxed print. The plot is a simple combination of two decent American war films, namely "Play Dirty", and also "Tobruk". A small band of misfit American commandos are assigned to head across the North African desert to blow up a huge German fuel depot. Why this fuel depot is important is explained in an overly long introduction, comprised of narrated black and white stock footage. That introduction is just a time-killer, but once it's out of the way, the fun begins. Director Roberto Montero relies on his cast of young Italian actors to give the film its energy, and they pull it off masterfully. The only American in the batch is Dale Cummings, whose only other notable credit is in a later Bianchi war film, "The Rangers". Cummings plays Captain Clay, whose reputation as a dangerous commander precedes him. Marwell (Maurice Poli, "The Longest Day") tries to warn the others in the unit that Clay will get them all killed. Unfortunately, Montero fails to take this conflict anywhere substantial – he confines this conflict to some occasional verbal sparring between Marwell and Clay, and seems to disregard it altogether as the film progresses.  Fabio Testi also co-stars.

As they flee they reach a village in which a fair is held but someone recognizes them and they must leave taking a dancer, Carmen, as a hostage. Gringo tries to protect her and is left in the desert all alone. The bandits then rob a mail-coach and kill the escorts. Gringo who is following the bandits gets hold of the pistol of one of the murdered men and kills the bandit who had him in the desert. The group of men experience several adventures which will prove that Gringo is innocent. Finally free, Gringo leaves with Carmen and his faithful friend Mexico.   Tough, well made SW with an exceptional first hour, which follows a heterogeneous group of prison escapists on their getaway journey in a stagecoach. After an unbelievably silly scene, the film returns to the background story, which is resolved in a good but conventional ending. Another good SW by director Edoardo Mulargia, Glenn Saxson, Lucretia Love, Ignazio Spalla, Aldo Berti, Livio Lorenzon, Pasquale Simeoli co-star.

JUDGE FAYARD: SHERIFF (1977)-In French with english subs, letterboxed print.  Shérif is a very good political thriller, based on true events : an honest judge was killed when his investigations began to unearth some uneasy truths about French high-level civil servants or politicians, presumably by some right wing rogue organization, the name of which was actually used in the movie (but replaced by a convenient "beep" when it played in theatres).Yves Boisset directs with his usual gusto and Patrick Dewaere, although a bit young for the part, plays the doomed judge with great talent. As is almost always the case with this kind of French cinema, the supporting actors are also very good and have unforgettable faces.

POISON IVY (1953)-In French with english subs. Here is the movie which made Eddie Constantine a star in France. Lemmy Caution is an American FBI Agent sent to Casablanca to investigate a stolen shipment of gold. The film plays as cross between a detective film noir and a spy film. Interesting to see note some of the similarities to the early James Bond films in this French flic from 1953. But a highly entertaining film in it's own right.  Lemmy Caution is bad ass; fighting, smoking, drinking, and charming the femmes!

In the confusion, Père Moche sneaks upstairs, grabs the messenger's satchel, and returns to his office to put it in his safe.

THE HOSTESS LIKES TO BLOW THE HORN (1970)-In Italian with english subs, letterboxed print. The movie revolves around a Napoleonic-era madam named Susana who flees Napoleonic soldiers and sets up shop in a small German village, running a brothel disguised as a convent school under the watchful, but not too bright, eyes of the local authorities. After having difficulties with the weasely mayor/magistrate-type, Susana hatches some hare-brained scheme to impersonate the man's bride-to-be, a contessa who he has never met before. Much zaniness ensues. The Sexy Susana character, who appeared in a whole series of these movies, was played by Teri Tordai, an appealing red-headed actress who strangely disappeared from European exploitation films after this role. The series is more famous today for a whole slew of supporting actresses who appeared in it and who went on to leave their market in Eurotica and Euro-horror films of the next decade or so, including Edwige Fenech, Margaret Lee, Daniela Giordano, and Femi Benussi. This particular movie features Rosalba "Lady Frankenstein" Neri and Andrea "Daughters of Darkness" Rau.  As usual female nudity was pretty much the raison d'etre of this film and there are plenty of naked Frauleins on display here.

INTERRABANG (1969)-In Italian with english subs, letterboxed print. Italian Gialli from the late 1960s differed in a number of ways from those made in the wake of Dario Argento's BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE. Before gore and set-piece slaying, gialli like Umberto Lenzi's ORGASMO and Lucio Fulci's ONE ON TOP OF THE OTHER were bloodless, psychological murder mysteries that relied on plot twists, sexual situations, and irony for their thrills and INTERRABANG is more of the same with director Giuliano Biagetti making the most of an extremely low budget, a trio of beautiful European starlets, and an enigmatic premise. The interrabang is non-standard English punctuation (a combination question mark and exclamation point) that never caught on and was probably the equivalent of today's WTF. That's what viewers will wonder when Fabrizio, a hip fashion photographer, sails to a secluded island with his wife, Anna (Beba Loncar), his model/girlfriend, Margarita (Shoshana Cohen), and his nubile sister-in-law, Valeria (Haydee Politoff) for a photo shoot but bails out to get help when their boat has engine trouble -knowing an escaped convict is in the vicinity. The bored babes, left to their own devices, soon strike up an easy acquaintance with Marco, a vacationing writer who first intrigues then seemingly seduces them one by one. Like most Gialli, the title is explained during the course of the film: the interrabang symbol is a gold-plated pendant said to represent doubt and uncertainty in the modern world and there's more than enough of that to go around. Motivation becomes muddled as heiress Anna professes to love her husband despite the infidelities and character flaws while her sister Valeria hates her for keeping too tight a control on the family fortune -and nymphomaniac Margarita doesn't seem to care about anything. Is Marco the escaped convict? Is he a homicidal maniac? Why does Valeria keep quiet when she finds a dead policeman? Margarita also stumbles upon the corpse just before it disappears and the mystery deepens..

KERIM, SON OF THE SHEIK (1962)-Beautiful letterboxed print. Gordon Scott, Liana Orfei and Gordon Mitchell star. Ok, here we go again with another great sword and sandal escapade called Kerim, Son of the Sheik.  This one features strongman Gordon Scott starring as Kerim the son of an older sheik belonging to one of the desert tribes.  He's out to seek revenge for the death of his sister at the hands of the local bully boy Emir Omar.   At first he starts off by doing small hit and run ambushes on the Emirs soldiers to annoy the hell out of him, but it soon snowballs into a full blown revolution of the peoples.  This is a very entertaining sword and sandal film with plenty of action and lots of sand.  It's obvious that the producers had a decent budget when making this film, and it shows.  It looks and feels authentic all the time with a decent directing job by director Mario Costa.  An adventure film with a middle eastern setting.   A sort of arabian adventure without the silliness of flying carpets or magic lamps, a real oasis of fun and exotic locations.
