What caught my attention was the combo of doc feel mixed with sci-fi. Love the concept of an alen containment camp.
David Holzman’s Diary (1967) Jim McBride
I remember seeing this film for the first time and when the end credits rolled I was blown away. A big infulence on my first feature film The Last Broadcast. David Holzman’s Diary is a cinematic treasure that is well worth the watch if you can find it.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THE FABULOUS STAINS (1981) Lou Adler
Finally LAGTFS is released on DVD. Lost in the vaults of Paramount for years. Starring a 15 year-old Diane Lane. Members of the Clash and Sex Pistols stand in as band members. Interesting depiction of the punk movement from a feminist POV.
LET THE RIGHT ONE IN (2008) Tomas Alfredson
One of my favs of the year. unexpected in so many ways. nice play on the vampire genre.
THE APARTMENT (1960) Billy Wilder
On the flight to Copenhagen last month, I had the chance to view Billy Wilder’s 1960 classic, The Apartment. The movie fires on all cylinders -strong performances, great dialogue and Jack Lemon’s comedic timing is a thing of beauty.
