  1. I thought Joker was a pretty good film, more similar to another Scorsese film The King Of Comedy (1983) , though not as near as good as that or Taxi Driver. I wish they had just done a dark film about a deranged man, not another Batman/Joker spin off, the comic book references were distracting. I have seen Hardcore, many years ago on a VHS tape. it was another good example of Schrader doing a dark film about the seamy side of life. George C Scott was excellent.
  2. I always felt sorry for that sweet Cockney flower girl. "Flower for yer buton-ole sir?"
  3. Totally agree on that, one of my favorite film scores. The sax solos seemed to represent the lonely character. I also like the ominous beginning to the score, as we see the taxi driving through what looks like Hell.
  4. Taxi Driver (1976) TCM On Demand 10/10 A New York cab driver slowly goes mad while he witnesses the crime and squalor of the city. One of my favorite films. Robert DeNiro's greatest performance. It is a fascinating character study of a lonely, socially awkward man named Travis Bickle. Some of the most interesting scenes are when we see in social situations. When he is with his fellow cabbies, he cannot always join in their conversations, he often turns the conversation back to the job and it's dangers. The cabbies all have nick names like Wizard (Peter Boyle), the veteran driver who ha
  5. The Missionary (1982) A droll British comedy with Michael Palin (Monty Python) as title character who finds strange ways of doing his work. A great supporting cast with Maggie Smith, Trevor Howard and Michael Hordern as a butler who cannot find his way around the house.
  6. So you are only going to type in lower case now?
  7. Can Ellen Be Saved (1974) Youtube 7/10 Ellen, a depressed young girl (Kathy Cannon) is lured into a religious cult. This was one of those 1970s Movie Of The Week that I never forgot. The version on Youtube is a bit dark in places but still watchable. I recall many scenes from it. Cannon gives an excellent performance, I don't think she got many other roles that I can remember. Michael Parks is the charismatic leader of the Jesus cult. He teaches her to they are their family now and to renounce her parents. The worried parents are played by Leslie Nielson and Louise Fletcher, after se
  8. Be careful, capitalization is now considered oppression. https://www.campusreform.org/article?id=18138
  9. Ticket To Heaven (1981) A young man (Nick Mancuso) is brainwashed by a religious cult. His family has him kidnapped and hire a tough deprogrammer.
  10. McVicar (1980) Roger Daltrey, lead singer of The Who plays a real life thief and convict and he is excellent. He also sings many songs on the soundtrack which are great too.
  11. Face Of Fire (1959) James Whitmore plays a handyman whose face is disfigured in a fire, then treated like a monster by the towns people
  12. Bonjour Tristesse (1958) One of Otto Preminger's best films, part of it in striking sepia and the other in beautiful color. David Niven, Deborah Kerr, Jean Seberg and a scene stealing Mylene Demongeot all turn in fine performances.
