Rate The Last Movie You Saw

Tools    





One of my favorite movies. Period. It completely knocked me out when I saw it in 1962, and it contributed not only to changing my own burgeoning philosophy, but to a whole generation's.

It's pretty tame today in comparison to most of the excesses in modern films, but it had an enormous impact when it came out. It was in the first wave of the Italian invasion that was to loosen up people's morals. The young generation was in the process of changing from Playboy and Cal Tjader "cool", to Hippie, and this film was a palpable catalyst.

I enjoyed your review. Don't know why I never reviewed the film, but I'll get around to it one day..
I saw it about 4-5 days ago, and I can already tell you it's a film that will grow in appreciation with me, probably as all that symbolism sinks in.

It's a great film fur sure. Have you seen Repulsion and The Tenant, btw? If so, what did you think of them? I think The Tenant is my favorite of the trilogy, though I need to rewatch Rosemary's Baby soon.

The Tenant is my favourite too, but were a minority.



Whenever I think about Repulsion,
WARNING: spoilers below
I think about when Carol rips that poor old woman's cuticle and how painful that would be. I've seen so many movies featuring painful ways to get injured or die, but that injury affects me the most. As a result, I try to not even think about the movie, much less rate or discuss it. Is that weird?

That's valid.



Blow Out (1981) - 6/10 - in my opinion, I know better movies of Brian de Palma

Yes, seen both. Love Repulsion because of Deneuve, but RB is my fave. Best thing Farrow ever did IMO.

We saw it in the theater in '65. Really shook me up. Afterwards it took me 3-4 beers to calm down. Was half way reluctant to watch any Deneuve film for awhile after. You can see why I'm not a horror fan..

I recall that scene where she opens her bedroom mirrored cupboard door. As it slowly swings open it suddenly reflects a threatening looking man in the room. Shocked the tweet outta me. That type of scene has been used hundreds of times since, but I think that may have been the first.
