If you’re a fan of Dexter, Natural Born Killers, A Clockwork Orange or Spinal Tap, you’ll cherish this film. Comedies don’t get much darker. Man Bites Dog is a mesmerizing, low-budget mocumentary following Ben, a serial killer, as he proudly teaches you (the viewer) how to get away with murder. It’s harsh.
After seeing this flick, you’ll wonder how it slipped under your radar. Five men wake up in an abandoned warehouse. One is bound. One handcuffed & shot. One has a ruptured nose. No recollection of what transpired, who was responsible or better yet, how to escape. This psychological thriller is full of intrigue, suspense, unpredictable twists and it gets only better each time you watch it.
The random hook-up. Thrilling? Or terrifying? In Clint’s directorial debut, Play Misty For Me, this simple act turns out to be the worst decision of a lifetime. Although the 70s trappings are a bit dated and bordering on comical, this Hitchcock-style thriller is definitely worth a watch.
The title says it all. Step by step instruction on how to hacky sack, break dance, bar flare, win at pool, juggle, skateboard, execute frisbee tricks and more. Stop admiring and be admired.
A maniacal Dennis Hopper, drunken Martin Sheen, selfish Brando, drug-induced crew, obstinate Army and a tight budget – it’s a wonder Coppola didn’t create his own Apocalypse. His wife, Eleanor, filmed every minute. Hearts of Darkness – oh, the horror.
