3:45 a.m.  Guru the Mad Monk (1970).  This sounds interesting …

A deranged 15th Century prison colony chaplain exploits his power to get money for his church including murder and grave robbing committed by his vampire mistress and one-eyed hunchback assistant.  Moe and Larry above?  Or Woody Tobias, Jr.?

Did slumber parties suddenly get dangerous in the 80s? I remember having them and attending them in the 70s when I was a teen/preteen, and I don't once remember anybody showing up with a drill, a hockey mask, a butcher knife, or calling me from inside my own house.

I stopped going to slumber parties after barely escaping the fifth mass murder.

12:15 a.m.  Pepe Le Moko (1937).  Later remade as Algiers (1938) with Charles Boyer and Hedy Lamarr.  The was virtually shot-for-shot and they used the exact same location establishing shots.

I didn't know nuns were allowed to wear eye make up back then.

SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!

This film has annoyed me since its release 35 years ago. It goes round in circles and in the end, the explanation for what happened is exactly what you'd think it would be. Good acting, but what exactly was the point???

And her stigmata?

But (IMO) it is not just about Agnes' delusions but also about the Jane Fonda character's journey toward faith.

being-there-1200-1200-675-675-crop-00000

5:45 p.m.  Being There (1979).  I’ve never cared for this film but have seen it a number of times trying to determine what I may be missing.  I guess I just find Sellers quite annoying.

I agree, that's a little nutty. But then so is the anti-vaxxer (SP?) colleague that accused me of giving her chickenpox by getting a shingles shot. She had already had the chickenpox. She actually broke out in "hives". I wonder if she would have broken out in hives if I didn't tell her about the shingles shot? So if Agnes didn't know anything about the stigmata, would she have had it happen to her?

Well, it wasn't a film promoting miracles like the Song of Bernadette.  That's for sure.  It thought in the end the stigmata was hysterical psychosomatic.

But Jane Fonda does go from being a complete disbeliever and a prosecutor to a much softer, almost spiritual person even when the facts do not support that journey.
