Peter Jewkes (aka Hippowithhiccupsredux) has been obsessed with movies since he was 10 yrs old & his dad took him to the library to see Lon Chaney in THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. He has seen a movie a day for approximately the last 30 years. He posts fanatically to Instagram:
LAUGHTER IN THE DARK (1969) - Tony Richardson's stunning version of the Nabokov novel featuring astounding performances by Nicol Williamson & Anna Karina.
STAVISKY... - A dynamite Jean Paul Belmondo as the notorious 1920s swindler in this Alain Resnais buried treasure. Charles Boyer co-stars and there is an oddball music score by none other than Stephen Sondheim.
CRAZY JOE (1974) - Peter Boyle has the title role as "crazy" Joe Gallo in this Italian made/New York set mafia bloodbath. Exciting, weird, extremely well acted by Boyle, Rip Torn, Eli Wallach and Paula Prentiss.
IN A LONELY PLACE (1950) - Certainly one of the strangest film noirs! Humphrey Bogart is a screenwriter with a lot of anger management issues who may or may not have comitted a murder...much to the horror of Gloria Grahame. Directed by Nicholas Ray.
LE CHAT (1971) - Love fades! Denys dela Patelliere's film of a marriage that has list its lustre in the most horrifying way for Simone Signoret & Jean Gabin.
WHERE LOVE HAS GONE (1964) - A masterpiece of high-strung camp. Socialite sculpture Susan Hayward endures a bad marriage to war hero/alcoholic Mike Connors. Hayward smokes a lot, Connors yells a lot and Bette Davis (as Hayward's mom) wears a lot of weird clothes.
THE HIRELING (1973) - Class structure run wild. Robert Shaw is the chauffer for the not so stable Sarah Miles. Mayhem ensues when Shaw "mis-reads" signals from Miles.
