Kelly discusses embarrassing Playstation woes, and the gang gets into 1980s Italian horror. Also discussed: From, Love is Blind, Pieces of Her.
I'm sorry, did I break your concentration somewhere between science and superstition such sigh to show you strange aeons. Welcome strange aeons radio. That's Eric over there. Hello. That's Vanessa over there now. I'm Kelly. Hey, you guys. We've kept my age secret here. I'm sure everybody thinks I'm probably about 26. I appreciate that you do. But nothing made me feel older. Oh, then, you know, our buddy Carlos, he, he gave me a PlayStation four. Just so I could have a Blu ray player, right? Yeah. I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out how to get a disc into it. How to open it. Really. There's no way open buttons you open. There's nothing on there. I'm just standing there. I'm like a wall. I'm not gonna call Carlos. And tell him that. I don't know how to start a PlayStation. Real seashells mom, I didn't want to wait for young guys to show up here and go, Oh, you just do this. I literally downloaded the PDF of the instruction guide. And it really pissed me off because it says place the blu ray in the slot and I'm like, wow, Where's the fucking slot? Oh, on the front. Yes, but here's the thing. So I mean, I'm running the edge of a Blu ray along that thing, hoping it'll just get sucked in. Right? I'm like, where is where is the slot? Yeah. Wow, I finally was able to to get my TV to show the PlayStation logo. And I was like, Alright, I'm somewhere here at one. And then I came in with my bright LED flashlight and found the tiny little button that is small rejects a disc and there was a disc in there which is why it will let me Oh, anything by their desk. Yeah. So mad at Carlos for this also, because of course he had offered me games and I was like, no, no, no, I don't need that. That's just gonna be a time waster. out pops the new Mortal Kombat. Oh my god. I was like, well, so I've got zero writing done, but I am fucking awesome Mortal Kombat. Now. Do you have a character you like to play at this point? Okay, so this is gonna make me old. I can't remember their names. That's, that's a blind guy. Sure, sure. Can CI or something like that? Don't you? Wait. If it makes you feel better? I haven't played Mortal Kombat since probably Mortal Kombat. Two, so well. I think I told you the last video game thing I had was the original PlayStation. And so that would have been when I played Mortal Kombat. Oh my god. Oh, man. Yeah. No kidding. Yeah, there. Yeah, I've had the same problem. I guess you'd say with Halo. It's so good. It's so fun. And the art is ridiculous. That's just like, ah, and it's one it's because what's what makes video games kind of cool. Is that's all you can do. You know, once you're in that thing, you're not looking at your phone like you can do during a movie. You're just Yeah, it's in the zone. Certainly not writing. You can write about Mortal Kombat. I know a guy down in California that would be really happy if he wrote a better Mortal Kombat movie. Anyway Carlos next time I see you I'll be bringing your Mortal Kombat back to you. So you I can kick your he's gonna come over and you guys are gonna play for like three days that's what's gonna happen yeah, he just moved into his new place and he's knocking down walls and everything and getting his new studio set up and I'm really excited to get down there and see what he's got going on. Yeah, cool. Besides fucking our way all of my writing time. I've watched a couple of things just lately um, did you guys even know anything about the animated the boys presents diabolical yo I kept thinking Wait fenders to go kept forgetting but as it started Yeah, all the entire season available right now. It's in very it's a eight episode animated series takes place in the world but not in continuity. You do end up with some of the characters from the series, but they are drawn. They're animated the way they look in the comic books. And the best part was seeing Hughie voiced by Simon Pegg. Yeah. So that was that was neat. And I don't know it's it's kind of hit and miss but, or hit or miss. And that's okay. Because every episode is about 16 minutes long. So you're like, Oh, I didn't waste too much time on this. Is it sort of a what if kind of thing or No, it's It's almost like well, I guess there would be a what if in our world What if the boys was an animated series, and every episode was done by a different animation company? style. So like one of the episodes feels very much like the Rick and Morty episode. One of them's It feels very much like a an old Ren and Stimpy Oh, fun. Yeah. So I don't know. I don't love it. But it's certainly an easy way to pass couple of minutes. That's nice. That's extremely cool. That's on Amazon Prime, by the way. Well, I have watched just incredibly stupid, stupid stuff. Because I've been working and trying not to have a mental breakdown. At like, too many projects. Too many parts. So the thing I watched, unfortunately, is a little show on Netflix called Love is blind. Oh my god. I know. I'm not familiar listeners, Vanessa covered her face in her hands. She's telling us this. So this must be something very silly. It's so embarrassing to especially for me, because I don't watch reality TV. Yeah, yeah. And now I do. It's so bad. I watched the first episode, ironically, because I was like, I'm eating a meal. And I don't want to watch anything I have to pay attention to so let's put this piece of crap on. Five hours later, is that the one where they they never meet until the Yes. So well. What it is, is they're in these pods. And they do kind of speed dating. And they're living in this this like offsite location. And they can't see the person. They're the people they're talking to. So they're just getting to know these people's personalities. And by the end of the pod stay I if they connect with somebody they propose to them, with the idea being that yes, they will get married because they fall in love with this person. Wait a second, they propose to get married after doing this and not seeing each other. Yeah, that's what's called Love is blind. And so then they needs and then they start to spend time together in the real world. They move in together. It's for like two weeks. And then at the end of two weeks, they either are at the altar and leave the other person at the altar, or they actually get married. So it's really high Trump is really fucking high Tron. I remember when this show was called The Dating Game. Sure. Yeah, actually, number one, if I was a popsicle, what would you do to? Yeah, yeah, it's interesting, because the the personalities are so diverse. Of course, a lot of times you're like, you shouldn't take it from that piece of shit. But come on that person such an idiot, don't let the whatever and oh, she's too good. And whatever. I don't know, I got really sucked in and I time went by. And at least it was something I didn't have to really get. I didn't have to think about it. So that was a big plus. But yeah, don't watch it unless you want to watch all of it. Because you will not just watch one of them. You won't you will watch the whole thing. It's like potato chip. It is. You won't be good for you. And you'll know you'll know as you're watching it, how bad it is for you. But you will get so I even watched the like last additional episode. That's another hour. That's like, where are they now? Because there's so and so and so and so get back together. They really belong together and you guys will know who I'm talking about? Yeah. Well, I am. I'm putting that on the list. And then I am crumpling that list up and I'm tossing around in the garbage. Yes, that sounds fair. If I could mind wipe You've no idea what the title of this show is. I would do it. I started a different kind of show. That's also on Netflix though. I just started watching it last night with Dana. Pieces of her. You seen this one? He got a Toni Collette and Bella. He's caught my you got me the Tony though. So yeah, exactly. And the whole storyline is it's the first episode starts with a shooting, match shooting kind of thing. Tony does something that her daughter has never seen her do. And you suddenly start to realize that don't he's got a color. It's got a past and whatever it is, is really bad. Because evenly but later on that night she she shows up as a hero on the TV and later on that night. somebody shows up that house to kill her. Oh There's all this shit I got. What did she do? What is going at it? It's really, really good. Wow, I think we watch first two episodes, but that's called what pieces of her. Okay, I'm gonna have to make a different list of things I actually am going to walk in there that one solid sounds much better. Much better that's on Netflix. Yeah. I started watching on Apple TV from I did not know what this is no, no, no. Apple TV last year did a show I really enjoy called Chapo away, which was a very bad adaptation of a Stephen King story, but a very good show to watch. I mean, it was nothing like the story and, and I was like, Oh, they really captured the feel of Stephen King. This feels like a Stephen King series. Again, it's about a group of people who are stuck in a town and they cannot leave, they tried to drive and pretty soon they find themselves in the town. So like a dome. Yeah, a little bit like that only not a dome around them. Just the inability to leave. And every once in a while. There's some there's like barricades and not barricades but like natural barricades, trees down over the road or something like that, that is preventing people from coming into the town. But sometimes somebody you know, gets around the barricade and now they're stuck in the town. And they have to be told this is what's going on and everything. So that's kind of the premise. But then the the twist is that at night, there is something out there hunting these people. And I thought at first vampires because they kind of act that way. But they're some kind of monster and they tear people apart. But they look like humans. And everybody has a tiny little like a stone medallion hanging in their window that's supposed to ward off the snake somehow. So I'm only about three episodes in. It's got some genuine creeps in it. And I'm really looking forward to it. I think it is one of the producers of last. And it's got a now I can't remember his name. Parent parent. No. and repair though he was in last. Oh, yes. The lead guy. I remember seeing the trailer first now that you mentioned I just hope to God it's not aliens. It could ever just not be aliens. That's when ever like anytime Stephen King stuff sucks. It's because it's aliens. This feels very evil monster and not so totally in. That sounds incredible. I also got an alien phobia. Matt, I can't Yeah, yeah. And it's just a it's this stupid thing to fall back on. And when you fall back on it, either it goes really, really terrifying for me or it? Or it's stupid, right? Yeah. Fun. Well, this'll probably end badly. But I really liked what I saw so far. Huh? Oh, that's awesome. Well, another thing that I watched that I started watching, and there's a new season of out as the marvelous Mrs. Maisel. I keep looking at that wanted to check it out, is it it looks like it's pretty smart and fun. Oh, my gosh, it's really good. It's really, really good for especially for anybody who enjoyed the writing behind Gilmore Girls. It's like a better, cleaner. Higher budget. Yeah, I told it. Yeah. Did not. Gilmore Girls are not a teenage girl. And you know, maybe, yeah, late 90s, early 2000s. And that's totally okay. Savage. Everyone's so dreamy. And that show. I have heard. I mean, everybody loves this show. It's a great show. It's so witty so fast. It's very loving towards the era it's in, which is the kind of 60s it has just great characters. There's no character that even in episode one when you hate certain people, and you have an idea of who they are, as the show envelops. No, there's they end up being some of your favorite characters. And just, it's incredible. But I will say I was like, I can't commit to this. I have too much to do. I watched the first like few episodes and was like, I gotta I gotta not watch anymore for a while. Plus, I got four episodes of love is blind to finish that I finished it. Finally two nights ago. After three nights of watching it now. It was bad. But you're gonna do on a different note. The latest Joe Bob. I think it was Valentine's Day. Yeah, yeah, I thought I had seen but apparently had not seen like roses. Yeah, this might have been the coolest VHS box art special. Sure. And it was black roses and Franken hooker. Yeah. And that is a stupid enter. taining movie. It really is. Versus Yeah, crozes is got what's his name? One of the guys from the sopranos has one of the more spectacular deaths when he gets killed by the stereo. I didn't. Really. Yeah, but probably wouldn't have done that when you watch it. I'm guessing you've watched before the sopranos because this isn't one you need to go. Alright, I need to watch. I need to go watch black roses again. But it was really fun. Yeah, and I have turned over now for I was job I was I was fine for me. I loved his writing. Yeah. It shows freaking great, man. Yeah. He's a super entertaining guy. Yeah, he was really good. But so yeah, that's what I that was one of the things I watched and it was just dumb and entertaining. And bad. Use it, man. Oh, yeah. This is the one where the band is coming to town and half the town is against it because they're super Christian. It sort of I mean, that's what that kind of crack knew of that is what it is. But it takes like 10 minutes of the first concert before every one of the people against that. Oh, these guys aren't that bad. And they all leave everyone. All the adults are like, Oh, we're good. Fine. It's for the kid and he starts off doing a kind of a I don't know like a Rick Astley start almost kind of music where it's really mellow and Poppy. And then of course he leaves and it becomes less Poppy. It's almost the same music, but now they have their shirts off. Yes. Amazing. Music Oh, man. It's it's, it's fun. It definitely fits in the that small but awesome group of metal made movies. Yeah. I'll have to check that one out. Because those are. Those are on shutter. Right? Yeah, I'd like to see that one again, because I'm sure he had a lot of trivia in between. He had some there. This was one that they were. He was doing his probably smart to do reverence to shutter. You know, because they brought his career back when there was another show on there, which is a horror version of RuPaul drag race. Oh, and I had the two people that run that on who actually were fairly entertaining. Yeah, they were pretty well suppose might be a fine and they knew their shit, too. They. So they were throwing out trivia about black roses as well. So it was they were still talking about the show. Right? It wasn't the usual, like filmmakers or something on there. Yeah. Oh, check that out. I will check that out. Right after we take a break for a word from our sponsor. Last week, our daughter in law Nancy had us over for spaghetti dinner. It was not bad. Even my husband Angelo liked it. Then I found out. It was Ragu spaghetti sauce from a jar. Well, before I could say anything. Nancy told me it's made from the same things I put in my own sauce, like ripe tomatoes, romano cheese, spices, herbs. This week, I made Ragu sauce and better than me that Ragu spaghetti sauce. That's Italian and we're back. I guess this is kind of my choice, but this was really Mike us choice. And that was that we do some 80s Italian schlock I guess you might call it he said he was okay with the rip offs with the bad horror with whatever. And man you guys, I picked a doozy. From 1988 I picked Primal Rage was very concerned about this year's event. And if the antics of last year are repeated, then this year's Halloween ball will be the last. Mr. Vice President. Are you referring to the drinking? Yes, I'm referring to the drinking the drugs, the nudity, and the general lewd behavior that shames our entire university. Any questions? Yes, May with us at all. It sounds familiar, but not to be confused with the Bigfoot movie. I just watched a couple months ago called Primal Rage, the legend of Congo. I was wondering if that was like, haven't you done this movie? And it? It did make researching this a little difficult. Yeah, I could find no budget or box office info. The Rotten Tomatoes critic score is nothing it's not been reviewed. And the audience has it at 17%. Oh, my. Yeah. Anyway, it was directed by Victoria Rambaldi. decoy. Yo radula, Mika dollar spatio and the breath of the soul. It was written by Umberto Lenzi. Who did Ghost House cannibal Ferox and schoolzilla and Omala. My guide was also written by James justice. Who was the director of nightmare Beach, Eric, remember that wow. And he Humberto and Vittorio all wrote nightmare beach together under the nom de plume. Harry Kirkpatrick. Oh, all right. Sure. Very strange. It stars Patrick Lowe. He was in Slumber Party massacre two, three episodes or something called generations. And one episode of quantum leap. That is the entirety of his career. Wow. Just a little surprising because he's a pretty good looking kid. And decent actor. Oh, also Cheryl urate to been in just a number of ABC after school specials in the 80s. Sara Buxton, who you would probably recognize she's she's a guest. She's pretty, but in a weird way. Also, Adam, just in case she's listening. I'll leave it there. She was in nightmare beach. Don't tell mom the babysitter's dead. And 550 episodes of Sunset Beach was still working today. Wow. And also the real name and this is both fencin 121 credits, including Kill Bill one and two Delta Force beyond the door three, and he is also still working today. Okay, this movie, let me just say I enjoyed this movie. Oh, God. It's not a good movie. But I enjoyed it. So it opens with these with these opening credits of our main guy, Sam, and he is biking through campus, a college campus and he's taking pictures of you know, hot young coeds, working out dogs. People are doing crossword puzzles. He's just taking pictures, right? But that doesn't matter because it is all to the tune, say the word by the facade band. Sure. Now this is a song you will become very intimate with because it plays over these opening credits. It also plays for about 14 minutes on repeat during a Halloween party towards the end. And it plays over the end credits. Yes, by the end of the movie. I not only knew the word of this song, I was singing them all along with it. So our heroes, Sam is a photographer for the local college newspaper and he's he's been constantly harassed by his best friend, Duffy to do an expose a on illegal experimentation on monkeys in the science lab. Ah, I'm not sure how often the college science labs are doing these kinds of experiments, but it seems a little far fetched to me. And Sam also seem far fetched to him. He's not sure he believes him. So Duffy takes it upon himself to break into the lab late at night. And there he finds I gotta admit, a fairly terrifying looking baboon. Oh, with his butt hanging out one of those kind of patterns like, like prolapsed anus. It's just like, I feel like we could have edited this so we never had to see this part. They're like, now we're using it. So he starts taking pictures of this baboon in the enrages the baboon, which is able to then shake its cage open, and he bites him. And then he goes breaking through the lab, the science lab window and out into the night. Streets, right And yeah, so now we're thinking, oh shit, we're getting a baboon loose in the city movie. But the baboon runs into the street it is immediately hit by a police car and killed all right Bo Svensson is the professor or the science lab professor. He walks up and he's like, this is going to set us back by weeks. Okay. So we are also introduced to Sam's girlfriend Lauren. When I say girlfriend, she becomes his girlfriend very quickly after he stops a tow truck driver from taking her car away, starts taking pictures of the guy and saying this car isn't been ticketed. And it's illegal to tow a non ticketed car or something like that. It all sounds very fishy to me. But the guy is scared away. And Laura now is like, Oh, my hero. So we meet her and then we meet her new roommate, Debbie. And the way we meet her she's, she's telling us that she's starting the semester late because she just had an abortion. Oh my God. Hi. Nice to meet you. Sorry. That's exactly she's and then she and then when Lauren is like a little uncomfortable. Debbie responds. Welcome to the real world tells her and I suppose us to let us know what kind of movie we're in store for. This isn't your typical baboon on the loose movie. But we also find out her new roommate who is you know, quite beautiful in a strange way. Calculate in her head the number of diagonals and a hexagon. Debbie tells her my IQ is 184 and Lauren response Oh god, you don't look and then stops. I hope she was gonna say something anti semitic, but there's no way we'll ever know. Later, Sam visits with Duffy, who doesn't cop to being responsible for the baboon escaping but is looking very sickly from the stranger. And Sam, even so Sam sets him up with Debbie who just had the abortion. They end up going out macking and he gives her a hickey guess remember hickeys attempts? Oh, yeah. And then he goes a little wonky. And we soon realize he's been infected with a rage virus like 13 years before. 28 days later. I was watching this going. Jesus Christ. This is pretty much the beginning of 28 days later, no monkey breaks out bite somebody and then that person. Anyway, he goes on a terrorist campus. He's breaking shit and attacking people. And it's all quite goofy. Does he hit by a police car? He does not. But he is starting to change. Oh, starting to mutate. And meanwhile, the next day Debbie isn't feeling great. Because she given that Hickey because he gave her that. Oh, she has the flu. Even though she has the flu. She's still out and about walking for some reason. And I guess I would make it her fault when she's walking down the street and she is assaulted by three men who drag her up to their dorm room and attempt to gang rape her. Oh, God, why not devise a Italian horror. point. Good point. Yeah, they're pretty bad. Fortunately for her, but very uh, fortunately for them, Duffy's Hickey has infected her and given her super rage string. She attacks the shit out and then infects them beautiful. Sam finally catches up with his buddy Duffy, who is starting to look very monstrous, and it's some pretty cool prosthetic makeup effects way better than you would expect from this, say quality and Sam has to kill him and it's very sad for about one second. Music attempts to kind of push you in that direction and then you're back off and running. Let's see. We're then thrust into this amazing Halloween party that is happening in the in the gigantic gymnasium of this college. And it is a it is some fantastic New Orleans Mardi Gras style costumes that you know you wouldn't see like in a Halloween movie type thing it but the problem is they all look like they were designed by one very creative person. Yeah, sure. In the costume department. Yeah. Of this movie. Everybody is dressed by the same Yeah, but they are super cool. One of the guys has He's got this huge mask on that has a person sign through his head and the sign is moving. Oh, damn, that's an amazing also, it is being hosted by the facade band. And they are playing their songs over and as Debbie and the three rapist monsters are trying to hunt down Sam and Lauren there's some pretty cool kills at the party. I was starting to really have a blast with this movie because you know, it's a it's a cliche for a reason, but if you're killed at a Halloween party, everyone is automatically going to assume that it is a joke, because it's horror right? Got your head ripped off. You're like, Man, that is a great awesome dude yeah, I'm not gonna tell you exactly how this ends. I will I'm gonna tell you exactly how this because I loved it. There's this absolutely wonderful death scene at the end where both fencin is attacking our guys after we think that they've gotten away they stopped Debbie and her and her monsters. And then both Vincent shows up we know he's the real bad guy. And he attacks but is then thrown off of the deck that they're on any lands on the ground where his head is impaled with a irrigation sprinkler. And the water is shooting out of his his head is like other say the waters like you know what? fucking love this. Wow, chef's kiss. So, my thoughts in the end this film works as well as a teen comedy drama as it does horror which is to say not very well at all. None of this makes a lick of sense. It's super fun. It's not scary at all. It is so 80s that it's ridiculous. The music, the fashion the hair is just like holy shit. This is the this is the 80s they're making fun of in the movies about the 80s now right it's it's so over the tax ridiculous. But super fun. You guys gotta watch this movie. I got some trivia very little. But I will just say this this. This film has some great Italian horror pedigree. So written by Umberto Lenzi, scored in part by Claudio Simonetti, who is the keyboard player of goblin of course, right. And the special effects were coordinated by Carlo Rambaldi is the father of Vittorio Rambaldi. Who directed this, but Carlo did the effects for aliens at King Kong. So that's why the effects look great in this couple of taglines Primal Fear. Primal Scream Primal Rage like a triple bill or something right? I don't like and then here's this one which is bad. It's two sentences. Either one of them could have been a better one on its own. But they put them together as like this. I love them. So there's a new party animal in town. She'll bring out the beast you Yeah. Was the monkey a girl? Well, I think that No, the monkey gets killed very quickly. Yeah, this is the shoe. I believe that's supposed to be Debbie. Okay, Debbie. Last one. I liked it. And I must thank mica for suggesting this because I never would have found this movie without it. sounds incredible. You've had some amazing pics lately. I just have so jolly. Um, although I will say my pick was pretty freakin great. There you go. I went with 1980 nines, the Church Nice. I'm not familiar with this. I, you know, I'm shocked that I wasn't as well, because it's got some pretty big names before it in it so quickly though, please put on your best offensive Italian accent while you're reading these names that alone for you, you could do that on your own. Oh, let me get to the Rotten Tomatoes scores first, the easy one. So it has a credit score of 64% an audience of 49% I don't know who these people are. I mean, like in 1989. How are they scoring these? Where are they getting these numbers from? Like old are they going through archival news? That's the weird thing that somebody whose job had to be to find the reviews for this movie like to Italy we go look at these papers. Three, five more offensive. I wasn't sure what I would use as like a qualifier. Um, so the the budget was 3.5 million US dollars. And the box office was 1.92 6 billion. Italian lira. Where you go? This sounds like something you would do to confuse your investors. to 2 billion it's amazing. Yeah, I was looking at a Wikipedia to get that info. And I was like, How come you guys didn't translate either of these to the other. But that's what I got. I was like, I'm not going to try and figure out in 1989 What lira would equate to modern day US dollar. So it is directed by Michelle suave. He's done 27 things including stage fright. Brothers Grimm, lots of Italian miniseries. And this was the second narrative feature. His first was a Dario Argento is a world of horror documentary. He was a total Argento fanboys since he was about 14. We've seen that I have not. It's wild. Yeah, that's wild. He was a huge, huge fan, which is good because it's written by Dario Argento. He's responsible for the story 42 credits, including things we've covered on the show such as phenomena deep red Suspiria and cat o' nine tails. Franco for Nini also worked on the story he's done 63 things including phenomenon once upon a time in America, opera Demons, demons too. And Michael started Michelle. I don't know if it's Michael or Michelle but Michelle's Swappi because it's Italian. And so the director actually was the I think it was the last set of hands on the script and he pretty drastically changed it from what it was. So this is starring Asia Argento. Oh boy. As Adi It's okay. She's like a teenager. Um Oh, so she only gets mostly naked. Uh, she didn't get at all naked in this. Yeah, it was. Yeah. That was when her dad was directing her I believe is when she first did that. Yeah. Grace. Oh, yeah, no, she's definitely like a middle school like upper middle school, maybe early high school girl on this and she is fully clothed all the time. Thank god. She's been in 72 things I actually I didn't know a lot about Asia Argento does she date Marilyn Manson? Was she one of his No, I want that. I don't know. That might be why he had a brief stint down. Oh, is it late 90s or Something where she got I think she's in triple X or one of those action movies and got a she had a big name for a little while. Yeah, she's when it's actually 72 things. This was her fifth role. She also did demons too. She went on to be in the 1988 Phantom of the Opera. She was in the 2000 lemmas miniseries, she was in love bites, triple X, the keeper last days. We also have Thomas Urena as Evan. He's been in 118 Things lots of bit roles and films. He wasn't Gladiator. He's been in the new pope, Bourne Supremacy, guardians, the Galaxy galaxy, lots of walk on TV roles. The biggest role I could kind of find for him was probably Lazarus and Last Temptation of Christ. I was like, Lazarus. That's some that that would have been important role raining down. Hugh, Hugh Hugh Quarshie as Father Gus are quasi quasi anyway, as Father guys, he's been in 77 things, including Captain Panagia. In Star Wars Episode One. He was also Sundra. In Highlander. He was a nightbreed red Sparrow, and now lots of UK TV. We had Theodore chef shell, bean, Jr. as the bishop, old man. It's been 54 things mostly roles, including lots of lots of bit roles, including one where he played that role. He was in Moonstruck in the Name of the Rose and Inferno. And Barbara coupIes. D as Lisa. She's been in 32. C, I'm doing my best. I appreciate this so much. She said in 32 things, mostly Italian films and TV also was an opera stage fright. And she's also a documentary director. So she's doing a lot of that kind of work on her own. The story, man, okay, I thought it was ancient Italy. It was not. We're in Hamburg, ancient Hamburg. Knights of the Crusades, evil ones are beckoned to a rural village where a girl with a stigmata on her foot has been found. When they get they get they're basically this like really untrustworthy guy who's like who who come in this way into this rock like village, this village behind this set of rocks. Don't worry, these people are definitely evil and I'm not tricking you into murdering them all. So of course good to know. They go in, they see the girl they immediately like the night holds her beautiful face in his hands, stroked her cheek and then crushes it with his fist. And then beheads her and a bunch of horses stampede on her on her decapitated head. They kill everybody. I mean everybody they think they make a giant enormous pit which they would have had no time to dig 20 feet by 20 feet in size. It is ridiculous. And they're throwing all the bodies in there and it just chuck a goose in there like a dead bird. Like you guys took this very seriously was my dinner man. I was thinking that is a perfectly good goose what is up with this? And then like as they're doing it you know they're like oh all of these people have been infected by demons and there was a rock outside that says 666 and and so they're trying to bury it and one of the knights on his horse gets like starts to fall in and then they just bury him in there too. Like the horses just dead I don't know how it just dies from like a small stumble but it is a crazy opening and the Knights are clearly the Knights that ended up having the KKK costumes based on later it's very very KKK looking. Fun times. Many Okay, I'm sorry. So they decide the way to deal with this giant pit of possessed dead people is to build a church on it and that way the Antichrist will not be able to rise again the evil will be trapped essentially in this little lock in key that is a church. This is before they had movies otherwise they would have known that no that's not how it works ever guys not see poltergeist Come on man. Exactly literally any it just seemed like a bad idea from the get go not not clever thinking but whatever. There is one character that's really interesting is running around. It's a kid who I just lovingly called Basket face because yes, a basket. It's really he's like hiding from them and he has like this sort of shawl and like the face area is just a basket. So he keeps just sitting there and people just keep walking by him and I'm like you guys that basket is moving a lot But he shouldn't have him. And they do eventually get him but and not after he has witnessed all that you've seen, but he still dies. So I was like, I don't know. Anyway, many years later, Hamburg exists. Big City and this church is right smack dab in the middle of it. A new librarian, Evan is hired to to start and sort out their library in this church. He shows up and immediately flirts with the restoration artist, Lisa, who's just working lovingly on this horrific, horrific, weird mural of a giant demon eating a guy with a big butt. They're all incredible. He immediately asks her out for coffee. And she's like, okay, cool. Sure later, we also meet the surly Bishop of the church who's like you're very late. And a young girl named ladi, who's played by Asia. And she's the daughter of the sacristan, so lives there on site, she's quirky and silly, and she's like playing with stuff underneath the desk, even though she's in middle school, it's like, I don't think she'd have like Koreans and toys and shit like, and be like, play, make believe under a desk, but whatever, they flip pretty wildly on the character of this particular person. And then we also meet the kindly father Gus, who is is great and seems cool, and everyone else doesn't. During the restoration process of this painting, they somehow crack the foundation. I'm not sure why they're digging in any way, shape, or form. They don't need to. It's just a painting guys. It's cool. But they somehow crack the foundation. And so Lisa goes down and like Stopstopstop, we're gonna, this the whole thing is going to fall down, we have to, you know, make sure get, I have to write a report, she says, Write a very important report about this. She then uncovers by brushing some stuff away a giant hole that just erupts into this column. She reaches in which I wouldn't do in a church like in the basement of a church that might fall down, I would not put my hand in a concrete hole, but okay. And she reaches in and grabs a piece of paper that's been shoved in there. It seems to have some interesting symbols and stuff on it. She shows it to Evan who just immediately becomes obsessed with it. He hides it from the bishop and he decides to be sacrilegious with it, he takes it off site and tries to figure out what it means. And as far as he can uncover through, because he's a librarian. So I guess he's good at this. It's something about a stone with seven eyes. So he goes from being I guess, our main character to just being weird and like, obsessive about figuring out this puzzle. So he starts spending all this time in the church and he eventually finds, oh, sorry, first he sleeps with Lisa, of course. Then he goes back to the church, basically, you know, telling me she you know, raper, you know, oh, don't speak too soon, or earlier. Not there yet. Okay. He starts digging around the church. And of course, he finds a basement with a large cross buried in it at the at the bottom, it's a flat cross kind of embedded. We did in fact, see this earlier, it is probably on a 20 foot by 20 foot covered up hole filled with demonic bodies, which by the way, those people seem very nice. I don't know how they thought they were demons, but whatever. Apparently they were. So he finds the stone starts to move the stone removes the stone, which I was like, again, you guys, this is like ancient stuff you probably don't want to fuck with it, lifts it up. And he immediately cuts himself. And it almost looks like a cross. But it's kind of missing one of the two lines you need for cross. So I'm like, I guess he has a stigmata hole. But I was like, all right. When he when he pulls the stone up, the whole cross falls down into what looks like infinity. If there's some kind of deep dark water, hundreds and hundreds of feet below. And the cross is just shining and sparkling and making its way down and down and down and he did not fall in but a giant blue light emerges and comes out at his face. And then he reaches down into the cross hole and brings out a giant gross looking sack that looks like it's made out of like leathered human skin. He opens the sack and two demon arms reach out and start to strangle him. He then falls backwards, hits his head opens his eyes and there's nothing there the crosses back to where it was. There's still a hole where like the stone he brought out was But everything's fine. And he's like, that's weird. He looks in his hand and he's like, Okay, well that's real, puts the stone back and then makes his way over to Lisa's, but along the way he starts to not feel so good. Goes to the phone booth to call her and all he can do is gargoyle and she's like who is this and she stays for a surprisingly long time. on the phone with him it's like Tommy really more so he he starts to become the I guess the the Satan whatever reincarnate the beast he becomes the beast and starts to look like monstrous but only sometimes only like reflections and stuff. So he races his way over to Lisa's place where she is attacked by some mysterious thing in the night. She calls the police who show up in about one second. Yeah she runs she leaps like she does is really good Argento I'm going to call the Argento would like roll are there gentle dive out of windows where you just go to hands forward, dive fully through glass, no problem at all, you know, land on your feet and immediately runs into the police who she called one second before and they think she's crazy. Next morning, she sees Evan at the church and she's like, Hey, I got attacked at this thing last night. It was crazy. How come you didn't come home? Because they're now living together? I guess one day after their first date. And he he's kind of like dismissive of her and you know, doesn't take her seriously. And then he tries to rape her. Oh, shit immediately. But does not because she gets away and then as she runs out of the room lady comes on. It's like Hey, what's that burger? Oh, you're my buddy pal. And I'm like, Oh my god. You got like girl like Lisa you couldn't say the lady. Hey, Ilan girl. Maybe don't go and hang out alone with this guy who just literally tried to rape me one second before. Of course, Lottie is hanging out with him. And he starts acting really weird. He's typing very hard on his typewriter 666 over and over and over again. Very Jack Torrance. And she. She's like, Hey, what's up? How's it going? I'm listening to my cool like, bebop tunes on my headset. And then he's like, how come you're not in school? Just like, oh, well, I wasn't feeling good, lie, lie, lie. And he's like, You're lying. No, no, don't feel good. I had a tummy ache. He's like you had a tummy ache. And then he like lifts up her shirt with a knife and starts, like kind of moving the knife over her stomach saying, let's cut it out. It's really fucking sinister very quickly. She runs off to tell her father and is like, hey, like the librarian is crazy and is doing weird things. Her father, however, also seems to be acting kind of weird. And he's sweating blood. And he's like, again, he's holding a big knife because he's cutting onions. And he's like, about to attack her and she runs out again. She escapes from the church and goes straight to a nightclub. So she is going to dance the night away to get over her stresses about it. Meanwhile, the church is filling up with a bunch of just fun characters. We have a teacher who needs her glasses to see and all the students that come along with that. There's a high end wedding shoot that's happening outside with a bunch of photographers. And they asked permission to get some photos inside the church. So they're in there. There's a couple of bikers who are on their way to a concert, they've decided stop and hang out for some reason. She's an eccentric old couple. So the church has become filled with fodder, essentially. Um, what? So? I mean, this is a stupid question. I'm sure sir. Why is everybody coming to the church? I think as tourists, okay. Yeah, they just want to see what's inside. Oh, yeah. And just like hang out, I guess as you do. So, because it's a big, big, beautiful church. However, something breaks for some reason. I can't say why. And a bunch of sand fills a thing. And then all the doors start to close. And the church is in lockdown because the Antichrist has risen. And no one is allowed. This is the safety measure they've put in place just in case it happens. A second so. Okay. This is a stupid question. It's not the evil that has locked all the doors. No, it's the good. It's the good, the good. I mean, good is a relative term here. Like they're really KKK knights. But all right, yeah. The ones that slaughtered a huge village full of people were had the foresight to build a church that had like a secret architectural structure that would go into lockdown. Should that Antichrist rise should the foundation I think if you move the whole, I don't know, I'm not sure what on earth causes this thing to happen. But it happened. This might be one of the greatest movies you have ever talked about. I gotta say I am hooked. This movie, you have to see this movie. It is nuts. So yeah, so everybody is now locked in and now we switch main characters. I'm not I don't think there's a main character of this show. There's just a we're now called Following Gus, the good priest, he's trying to figure out what's happening. He goes up to the bishop. He's like what is going on here, things are weird. I just had a guy come into confession, law, lotteries, father, who was like, I think I'm a demon and I want to kill and then he just punches through the like wooden panel that separates the confession from the priest area, he just punches him through and runs out screaming. And so of course, guesses like what is going on here. And the bishop is acting very strange, because he's been studying one piece of paper very intently, this whole movie. It is very odd. It's like a picture of Jesus Christ on the cross. And He has figured this whole thing out from this. So the bishop is like, we do nothing, we cannot leave, we must just stay and remain. And then he says, I've discovered there is a secret button, that if you press the entire church will implode on itself and prevent hell from rising up beneath us. And so Gus is like, what's the button? He's like, I'll never tell. And then he immediately falls off the top of the church and impales himself. Oh, my. Yes. Very, very beautiful. And Gus is like, oh my god, cuz he just wants the answer of how to stop whatever is happening from happening. In the meantime, anytime somebody gets scratched, or you know, spit on or touches the water in the the holy water in the church, they are becoming demonic as well and becoming possessed. And it's, it's not that you see them looking like demons. It's more in their reflections. You see, these weird things just start to happen. The biker sees his girlfriend's around the corner, completely nude, like making out with this giant black winged serpent creature is crazy. And like it's on a roller, so it just kind of rolls away and he like turns his head around the corner to see what he just saw. And his girlfriend is stood there with all her clothes on. She's like, this place is weird. Let's get out of here. Of course, everyone's trying to find a way out of this strange situation. Demons are getting worse and worse, at one point, the sacristan sacristans the body's dad grabs, like I'm a kind of a gate filled with spikes, that is inside the church, like blocking off one of the statues and then just impales the bride on the door. And all the kids, I was like, the kids must be really freaked out by this. And they're just like, a few hours later, the kids are just hanging around in the pews, playing, making jokes bounce back, you know, they're, you know, they do just fine. Meanwhile, of course, Evan is becoming more and more giant goat creature. He's basically that the people who are getting infected in the church are beginning to form this cult. And they start to have a giant orgies sort of thing. And they're preying down in the basement, and they take Lisa, and they strip her nude and put her on a rock and paint her. And then I think the idea is to gang rape her but we only see Evan as a giant goat raping her. So that's okay. That's all right. That's one by I mean, she really protests and then she gets pretty catatonic about it. So I don't really know. And that's sort of the end of her character development right there. So Gus is trying to figure out the answer and discovers that he does kind of find a button to so complicated guys, I don't know, he finds the button. He presses it but before he presses it, a jet the orgy has become a giant mud orgy and it lifts up through the church on this giant pedestal of like human beings like kind of writhing around on this. I don't even know. It's so cool and weird. And at the same time, he opens up a piece of the ground that has a giant like, architectural weird. I don't know what this is called a cog. And he presses he presses one thing and the whole church just sort of falls on itself. So yeah, that's that's basically the end of the movie. And I gotta fuckin see that. Yeah, me i have i and i have barely scratched the surface. This film is fucking what was this on? I actually, funnily enough, I was sent this on Blu ray from one mica circle. Yeah, so I was like, I didn't bother watch this movie. I should probably do that, huh? is incredible. I mean, it feels it's beautiful. It's really well shot. It's weird as fuck. It's Italian. So I don't know what is happening. Why it's happening. Like there's very little explanation for a lot of things. Everything is really straight in time does not matter. But there are just great moments like there's a knight helmet POV where so all the Knights the starter wearing these buckets with like crosses on the heads. And so you go into the POV where it's just like the cross slits going around like murdering people there's just such cool weird choices happening throughout I super super highly recommend this movie and basket face I mean I love basket I want to be basket face for Halloween he was or she was incredible. It's hard to tell me hey, I expect to see a Krypton basket. Easy costume really, really vague, really vague. Trivia. So I had talked earlier about wanting to do demons to as as my film and very last minute choice decide to go with the church instead. This was actually supposed to be demons three. Make sense? Yeah, it was conceived as the third installment. Suave a insisted, however, that once he got once they got into his hands that it be distanced from the series. He wanted this film to be sophisticated. And he personally rewrote the screenplay to remove all connections to the series, which is interesting because the previous draft was about an airplane that crashed landed on an island with a volcano and the power when the passengers arrived. It was a weird hellscape. So I'm just gonna take a little polish. Boy, that is a rewrite. He really rewrote it. The previous one was really based on alien somehow, Mario Bava was meant to direct but he left the project when the rewrite occurred. Shockingly, so. Michel swappa entered as the director, the film's title for the Spain release was L in in engine throw, del Diablo, which means the spawn of the devil, which I'm glad the title wasn't that because there is not really a spawn of the devil. Like I guess the guy like gets infected with the devil. It's not really a spawn though. This shooting was done in Budapest with additional shots done in downtown Hamburg, originally suave, and Argento wanted to shoot the movie in Lawrence Z. Laurens Kirche. Yeah, Lawrence Kirche, of Nuremberg, Germany and even did test shots there. However, it was abandoned because the town of Nuremberg didn't want a horror movie to be shot there. In fact, basically, no one wanted them to shoot this script in their church. I don't know how they convinced this one church to do it. I couldn't find the answer. But they got I could come up with some possibilities. Maybe zero, maybe they just gave a different version of the scripts to the church and was like that has been done to have done that seems like there's a volcano the script I'm gonna search for. This groups sorry, the score was originally meant to be done by Keith Emerson, who did the score for Inferno, but Argento thought that it was what he came up with was terrible. He said it was worse than what a child would do. So instead, he used like one or two of his tracks. He threw in some Bach for good measure. And then of course, use to Trick Tracks by Philip Glass, and Fabio pagine. tell you who is credited as the Goblin and the credits. So using goblin actually really angered suave a the director who referred to them I'm not sure if he refer to them or to the movie demons. It was very unclear as pizza schlock but I thought that was incredible. He was pretty pissed at Argento, and this might have ended their creative partnership. The image of the bikers naked girlfriend hugging the winged serpent. Yeah, hugging, that's what they're doing was taken directly from a famous Boris Vallejo painting. The design for the lizard demon gargoyle painting that's being restored is taken from an infamous 1600s wood carving depicting a man selling his soul to the double ladi the sacristans daughter was played by Asia Argento and her one of her earliest acting roles. Her father Dario Dario Argento worked extensively on making the film. Oh, making the film of various positions I don't even know why would that down that's nothing tagline for this movie. You haven't got a prayer. Oh, I like that. We go. Now I've talked about this a way more than I intended to but a really, really cool I would. I'm shocked like it is up there with Argento stuff. It is really amazing. So check it out. There's a lot of if you start digging into the Italians, there's some wonderfully crazy crap. So I don't want to talk now. Because mine's not bad but it ain't great. So I have got Arabella lacking job walk over this you're like a Black Angel. You're like when you buy you a drink lady I prefer to get screwed she knows your mind is a pretty messy show. Would you like a bite? Could you tell me exactly what happened in here? Glad to see a lot of blood around because I cut off the guy's Dong I mean it's been as it is male Oregon has memory you know? Including balls. testicles, testicles message with this scissors crimes it's all coming out again. What made you write all the things he must know that they're totally untrue. So why did you do it? Why didn't kill whatever you're done but I love you. Oh, that sounds like a cool title 1989 So squeaking it in there it is not listed on Rotten Tomatoes so it's the same thing as that one I had at the undertaker I think where I put it in there didn't show up. I Google I put in the director's name and it showed up under there but it's grayed out. Interesting. Oh, no Rotten Tomatoes score at all. We're really getting down there on these now man. Director by Stelvio Massey, who directed taxi killer, Cobra Nero, Hell's heroes speedy driver and speedy cross to different films is also a DP with more than 50 with 56 credits, including this film. It's written by our Philip Ucci and this is all he wrote. One and done only film credit stars Tina casino, who was in Drive in international airport and nightmare in Venice. Francisco Casali who uses the same name in the film was in jolly blue and pirates blood brothers. Yeah, this is ladies Italian movies. Starts off with the pulsing sound of keyboards and guitars in perfect insanely good sounding common. Like okay, it's all car cars and keyboards now. Okay, lay down the guitars and just play some random shit on keyboards over the top, we'll use that. So from the beginning, what have I got here? This movie starts out on kinda looks like a super low budget version of Eyes Wide Shut with the lead woman walking into this warehouse place full of all kinds of strange interactions between various clothed individual, shall we say? And some guy is. Like, for example, there is a purse, a woman with a strap on and another woman using it to light a cigarette because it's got a candle lit on the end of it. Ah, whatever works for you. Yeah, that does not work. She's being followed by a guy. I don't know who it is. He is not his goals are never really articulated very well in the movie, but he's following her with a camera and trying to get photos of her being doing bad things which he succeeds in as a fairly uncomfortable scene, which makes very little sense where she pulls into guys to enjoy their company. And it starts off as a an okay thing and then part of the way through, they start saying going, you're going to work for us now. Every time you have sex, you're going to pay us Oh, hell just happened. And the cops are now showing up, you know, because this is some illegal stuff, apparently. And the Oh wait, I forgot to mention the people that sex was she will give them 70% She will get to be able to keep 30% of her earnings is not prostitutes happen. Could be I don't know this all happens in like three minutes. So she gets arrested trying to escape but you know, the cop doesn't think much of what she was doing there. So remember, we were talking Italian horror films in the 80s Unless gang raping habits there was just one guy just the cop. Oh, apathy. The photographer gets all the pictures of it. Oh, cop get what? Oh, god. What do you want me to go into more detail? I don't want I'm just trying to envision this. It's like really weird. Okay, so next comes in some guy who's in a wheelchair typing away. That lady shows up and she looks so different. I thought it was a different person. Because when she went on her little escapade, she was wearing really long red wig. And makeup was done differently and she shows up on so is this a different character and figure as the movie goes for a few minutes go? No, no, that's that's her. And he rips into her verbally being a real asshole and but she's like sits down crying, remembering the fondly of her wedding day. And her walking husband driving away from the wedding and oil you know, getting in an accident. The cops arrive at her place later on the cop that raped earlier has come back for more. Oh, wow. And says, well, now I've got the blackmail against you. So you know, if you do this, I'll if you don't do it, I'll tell your husband. So they start fooling around in the husband wheels his way and seeing as she kills the cop. That's for her. This leads for an interesting idea for the husband, who's having a hard time writing his new novel, because he can't get any good ideas. So it's like so you been going out at night? Right? You should do it again. All right about it. It'll be my new novel. You're going out having sex and she didn't plan on killing people. But I think that's what he had in mind. So you know, this is all very much, Cinemax, late 80s, this would have been a big hit. For them. She does confess that she is an angel of the night has been going out for many nights to fulfill her needs. For some reason, the he just gets rid of the cops body and that's never really discussed again. So there you go. Easy to do in a wheelchair. That's right. The well meanwhile, the photographer's trying to tell him sell his photos to somebody because he puts together that that cop that got killed. Apparently everybody knows he's disappeared. But nobody really investigates it. But he wants to sell them photos that he took and a black glove killer shows up. So she's going out again, and it's an 80s dance club. This is like you were mentioning earlier, this is a painfully 80s looking thing. We've got neon clothing, black vest with white shirts, and no collars on the shirts and like Yep, that looks like the 80s it also looks like a very gay bar. But apparently it wasn't because she manages to pick up a guy in a cowboy hat with giant tassels on his brown leather jacket. was the center of the village faithful. Kidding. He looked like if somebody's writing this and Italy sat down go Now what's an American look like? I got that. So she picks that up. He hadn't reminded me of Steven Seagal and his later years but so she picks him up and I think they were going for sexy in this scene. She gets largely naked up opens up a bottle of champagne and proceeds to pour the entire bottle. That's how long this scene goes. I've heard just pouring down her friend but you know you got in a weird position in world where you're watching a pregnant woman get naked and you're really bored. Like, can this see man, please? It's just not working at all. And I'm like, Man, I wasted all that champagne. That's not any of it was concerned. Oh. But somehow the guy gets killed. The next morning we find out some part of him was removed. I wonder which part was it? His Pinky? Close. You have the first few letters Correct? sure how you spell pin penis. The first letter I guess, is actually how it's poorly spelled pinky in my mind I have concerns about everyone's mental state. Yep, there you go. But the now we've introduced to the detective who's working on the things that she's supposed to be really tough and mean thing but then there's the it's all easy. It's so cliche the, the guy that's working with or comes in eating a something. I don't even know what he's eating but it's got double ketchup on it. They make a point of saying that, but somehow all the ketchup is on the outside. Whatever you He's eating so it looks like he's just eating a big been covered in blood thing. Okay. Suppose to add humor what the point with this was? So the lead detective is troubled by what is heard we find out later why and it really doesn't make a big deal. But cuz she's she hallucinating blood coming out of the sink No no she just but they tried to make a mystery out of it by saying that she didn't kill the man but who did it's like you know, it's pretty obvious she didn't kill. We already knew that. I don't know if that's supposed to be news to us are just some bad dialogue between these people. But she wakes up the next morning with I'm assuming her girlfriend because they're laying in bed together and they're talking. Amazingly enough. No sex occurs between the two of them well, such as kind of surprise being an 80s movie. But she tells her her deepest, darkest secret. But not yet because the scene ends before I have one. But she did tell her the secret and her girlfriend is so good that she immediately goes to the newspapers and sells them the story of how her lover's mother was killed with a knife to her genitals. Ah, that's awful. And so there's a relationship between the current murders and something happened to add to but my note here is not allowed happens for 20 minutes 2030 minutes or so. Oh. There's a truly another strange seduction scene with her husband in his wheelchair and her where they start to get involved. And the mom who's living with them wanders into the room I've got and stands there and stares at them for an uncomfortably long amount of time and then leaves. Wilkie is a big story of this betrayal by the girlfriend is very bizarre and just feels really shoehorned in. It doesn't really work. But detective gets fired by her boss because of the newspaper article. And let's see, oh, we've got another Eyes Wide Shut kind of scene. Because he's got to return to the scene of course. And of Korea then there's the end and I'll let you if you're interested in this and you really love Italian jello. This is worth watching, despite how I made it sound it but it's just it's really weird. It's really clumsy. It looks phenomenal. Said the guy's a dp. So it looks great. The acting is above par for a lot of the for a lot of Italian films. It's not quite a JLo. And it's not quite a Basic Instinct kind of that erotic thriller thing that was really big in the late 80s. It's it's sort of sits in a weird place between the two of them. It's part of vinegar syndrome series. I think they have to four bucks. That's now of three movies each have forgotten Gallo, as a pretty good entry into that, because it's certainly nothing I had heard of before. The reading and things. I'm sure Tony will know all about it. Boy at so shoulder pads are everywhere. Boy, I tell you these shoulder pads these two especially the two women are wearing, wow. You could have breakfast on those suckers. There's no Wikipedia. There's no IMD Qi trivia at all. There's very few reviews. Google even has the name of it misspelled it's got the wrong name. It's Angela said Annabella. I I'm curious why you chose this one. Oh, it's I've got those boxsets Okay, so it wasn't like I mean, okay, it was like okay, I looked at the four of them go in you read the back. What I did actually is I looked at I picked one of the four boxes, pulled out the three movies and I IMDb for the highest rated one. Okay, and this was the highest rated one of the three Wow, but no other information given so little out there. There is an interview with Alexandra Heller. Nicholas, is that audio essay not really the interview where she talks about the movie. She's written nine books about films. I've got one called the jello canvas. Pretty decent. But she talks about how the director is far better known for camera and DP work. He was camera guy on Fistful of Dollars. Oh, as a camera, he did some pretty big work. She has a really interesting strange break down to the really bizarre sexuality of the film, the power dynamics changes between the men and the women in really weird ways. So the woman Being in power to not being in power to going back to being in power. And a final note, the lead is the daughter of Rita Hayworth's brother. Beautiful. So I would say if you're a JLo completus This definitely should be in your viewing.
