What We’re Watching
Ride the High Country - an odd but wonderful bridge between the classic westerns before and the soul-searching revisionism of the future. Hands Over the City - Rosi's tense and menacing political exposé is still relevent and comes with steller performances from Carlo Fermariello and Rod Steiger Noah - equal parts cheesy, bonkers and beautiful Stranger on the Third Floor - This proto-noir channels Kafka and Dostoevsky, and under-uses Peter Lorre High & Low - a film of 2 parts, one part claustrophobic and character based, one part procedural and taught, both excellent Big Bad Wolves - a little thin at times, but all in all fine, disgusting fun
