Bad Timing (1980)




Director Nicolas Roeg elevates fairly average material in this erotic psychological thriller. It seems in all the movies of his I've seen, I love his style, mood, vibe, or whatever you want to call it. Head doctor Art Garfunkel has an affair with the wild Theresa Russell, and when it doesn't end well, Harvey Keitel with his long hair in the back comes in to investigate. It is a dark movie, even darkly funny for the right person, and what I thought was cool was that I didn't even know what the crime was until the end. I heard this was a sick controversial movie. I couldn't see why, again, until the end, and then I thought oh yea I get it. So it's a bit of a slow burn that even wifey liked. She got yet another good laugh at my expense when Russell flashed a bit of pit fur, much to my horror. I had told her that I had a crush on her in the past. Anyway, I really enjoyed this but it's not for everyone. Vienna looks awesome btw.

This kind of story was told in a couple of movies before. Nothing special. One time movie.

The movie was made by Daniel Sanchez Arevalo - the guy who made DarkBlueAlmostBlack. I expected more. Much more. The first monologue really makes me laugh, but after that it's just bad.



Watched the original House of Wax from 1953 with Vincent Price:

Fantastic classic horror, 7/10

Watched the 2005 remake afterward, curiously starring Paris Hilton. Very different movie

Michael Haneke is an interesting and talented filmmaker, but he often wants to give his message.

What is his message?
I liked this, but after a while, it became redundant... I think I gave it a 7/10



Overboard (2018)

Not bad, passed a couple of hours with the odd guffaw. The switcheroo of it being the guy that was "hoodwinked" was quite good.

Supposedly it's his response to violence being shown in the media, especially in America, and the reason he remade it is because not many Americans saw the original.



Watched 'Million Dollar Arm'. Can't remember the last time I have cringed so many times while watching a movie, as I did during this Disney film. It's based on a true story, but they have probably made it several times more melodramatic.
Still, it had Lake Bell. I always have time for her, since she seems like a nice person. And she totally rocked the Indian costume.

The exact reason for the remake I believe. Same as with George Sluizer and "Spoorloos"/"TheVanishing". I suppose it all comes down to how much you rate the original to see if you'll give the remake a crack.

Jacqueline Susann's Once Is Not Enough - 7.5/10

It starts out great, but I think they emphasized most the least interesting relationship.






3 Women (1977)

I haven't really liked any of the Robert Altman films I've seen, however I did love the first half of this film. It was simplistic beauty, a seemingly benign story of two women who meet at a therapeutic Hot Springs medical facility for the elderly and share an apartment. Altman takes this simple idea and makes it seem fascinating. I was riveted to the everyday happenings of these two women. Altman knows how to capture the little moments of life that so many other directors neglect. The first half of the film felt like observational cinema, and was truly a thing of beauty.

Shelley Duvall is in her prime her, both in years and more importantly in her acting ability. She abides her character with all these little nuances and idiosyncrasies that makes for one of the most intriguing characters I've seen portrayed on the screen.

Sissy Spacek is real good too, very naturalistic and grounded. She paired well with Shelley Duvall's more colorful persona. I'd give the first half of the movie a


But then as we get towards the end of the film it goes all surrealistic. Robert Altman is quoted as saying he started shooting without an ending, and improvised as they went. He did that a lot in his films, and IMO that lack of focus hurts the film. We didn't need a twisty Twilight Zone ending, and not all films need to end big. In fact less is often more and a quieter ending would have allowed the moments of the film to outshine Altman's improvisations.
