Oh man you're making me want to rewatch, glad you liked itThis was very good. A couple well done tonal shifts turns it into something much more elevated. The first obviously being Nick Stahl's early demise. (I hadn't seen him in anything since Carnivale and Sin City lol) Where a traditional set up lends way to a quick and unexpected reverie of remorse and regret. This part is where Spacek, Wilkinson and Tomei do most of the heavy lifting, until Wilkinson's character finally decides to do something about what happened and the second shift happens. This time you're anticipating it. And right there with him in support as he embraces the darkness, hoping he can set things right in the only way he has figured out to do. There's a bit I loved once he's back in the bedroom with Spacek, who is the more relieved one, where he couldn't get the image of Tomei's character smiling with her husband in a photograph from the killer's house out of his mind. Almost as if he was contemplating doing the same thing to her. The movie ends shortly after on this ambiguity, leaving us all to think what exactly he may or may not enact. A masterful debut film.
I see myself rewatching this one in a few years, so you definitely should. Yeah Stahl was just as strong as the three primaries here so he had the chops. Kind of sad really. He was awesome in Carnivale.Oh man you're making me want to rewatch, glad you liked it
Just remember finding myself emotionally overwhelmed despite the somewhat subdued presentation
That was the time period in which I really thought stahl would have a long lasting career. He was strong as fuck
I agree his work does it for me as well. Too Old to Die Young is simply put one of the most profound things I've ever seen. Not necessarily in a story or plot driven way, which I don't think he has ever been too interested in, but in the structure and aesthetic sense.only 2 eps in so far, loving the mood
something about his work does it for me. the things he puts on film i cant imagine anyone else doing
and they look so insane. totdy was visually incredible most of the time
I hope one of those was universal soldier regenerationSick (John Hyams)
This one kind of floored me. Hyams follows up his minimalistic escape horror Alone with the equally reserved and poignant modern slasher Sick. From the three joints I've seen from this guy he is clearly a leading force in the small grindhouse genre exercise. Possibly the first film to effectively make use of the Covid quarantine. Written by Wes Craven regular Kevin Williamson this is yet another classic from him. Helped along by Hyams' usual crystalline style.
Nah just Dragon Eyes, Alone and now Sick. I mentioned wanting to get to those in here a minute ago, but I think the prospect of needing to see the original first is holding me back. I'm sure I'll be liking them as I have become a big Hyams fan, I just need to get past the Emmerich hurdle.I hope one of those was universal soldier regeneration

Nice. Love both of those but Bleeder is probably the better one. There's one scene in the latter during the beginning in a video store that is pretty much the best thing ever for a film lover.Just finished fear x
It certainly was a movie. I dunno. Torturro was good, it really didn’t look like a refn although it was well done. Not surprised that this almost ruined his career
I’ve got bleeder downloaded and I think that’s the last thing I haven’t watched of his
