Leave Her to Heaven 1945 Directed by John M. Stahl



1h 50min | Drama | Film-Noir | Romance | Thriller
Writers: Jo Swerling, Ben Ames Williams
Cast: Gene Tierney, Cornel Wilde, Jeanne Crain


"Patchouli"

Very subtle and creepy noir thriller with a good slow build-up. Truly mesmerizing performance by Gene Tierney, displaying the highest level of calculated evil. Also thought they did a perfect job casting Jeanne Crain for the role of Ruth. The interior and wardrobe design looked exquisite. And so did the color scheme, it seemed coordinated with the leading lady's eye-color. Loved the opening scene on the train and the final scene.

Loved that you used aqua for the title! I get it!.. So cool that you watched this and loved it to. It's one of my favorite films both for it's psychotically cold, lead character and for it's visually.

Seeing how you liked it, maybe take a look at some of my other Top 10 profile movies

Pickup on South Street will probably be the next one, or the colorized version of My Man Godfrey.



@John-Connor by any chance you will post something about those erotic dramas of the 90s, for example:
Damage 1992
Whispers in the dark 1992

The Immortal 2019 ‘L'immortale’ Directed by Marco D’Amore



1h 56min | Crime | Drama |
Writers: Leonardo Fasoli, Maddalena Ravagli
Cast: Marco D'Amore, Giuseppe Aiello, Martina Attanasio, Salvatore D'Onofrio

If you like good crime series and are not familiar with Gomorrah stop reading, logg off, call in sick, and binge it.

L'immortale is a spin off prequel and a sequel to the events after the third season of the TV series. Similar to Deadwood and Serenity this can't be watched without having seen the series.




Ciro Di Marzio 'The immortal', a beautiful and deep character played by one of the best upcoming and multi talented Italian dramatic actors Marco D’Amore. Who also directed it. The film focuses on the life and times of Ciro's past and present. A compelling crime film, if it was an episode it would’ve been a strong one with the same grim and gritty atmosphere as the series. It also has the same Mokadelic score which is fantastic as always.

Curse of the Golden Flower 2006 ‘滿城盡帶黃金甲’ Directed by Zhang Yimou

1h 51min | Drama | History | Action
Writers: Zhihong Bian, Yu Cao
Cast: Yun-Fat Chow, Li Gong, Jay Chou

Shakespearean / ancient Greek family tragedy style drama. About the Royal family and the Emperor of China during the Tang dynasty. Well acted film with out of this world production design, cinematography and hair and makeup. The storytelling wasn't really up to par but the visuals more than make up for that. It's truly one of the most gorgeous films I've seen.

i’m thinking of ending things 2020 Directed by Charlie Kaufman


2h 14min | Drama | Thriller | Fantasy
Writers: Charlie Kaufman, Iain Reid
Cast: Jessie Buckley, Jesse Plemons, Toni Collette, David Thewlis

Was that a jab at Zemeckis? Thanks for the A Woman Under the Influence spoilers Charlie!
Tarantino-like with the many references to other works, only Kaufman taps from a different artistic lane. He also dissects Baby It’s Cold Outside in a way reminiscent of Reservoir Dogs and Like A Virgin.
Captivating and fascinating mindf'ck story. Eccentric delivery with great acting and screenplay. Wonderful music and dance piece just before the final scene!

"There is no Genius Edition!"
"Watch the world through this glass, pre-interpreted for us. And it infects our brain. We become it. Like a Virus."
"Color is the deeds of light, it's the deeds and suffering."

The Vanishing 1988 ‘Spoorloos’ Directed by George Sluizer



Re-watched Spoorloos/ The Vanishing last night. I was way too young when I saw it for the first time. Very suspenseful and atmospheric abduction Mystery/Thriller, right up there with Zodiac and Don't Look Now. One of the best Dutch films ever made. (Edited my '88 top ten, The Vanishing is in at 5th place)
