|a||"My Son the
Fanatic", from Johnny Web
My Son the Fanatic is a BBC film about the cultural clash between a Pakistani taxi driver in northern England who has been completely Westernized, and his English-born son who is in the process of rejecting Western values and returning to Islamic roots. The filmmaker treats neither of them with great sympathy. The father is ostensibly a compassionate man, but he has almost written off his wife, is eternally sucking up to people who treat him like a lower species, and is not above such Western indulgences as excessive drinking and pimping. The son is supposed to be a smart lad, but he suddenly turns stupid when it comes to viewing the hypocrisies of his fundamentalist friends. The son's part is written with few subtleties, but the father is at least an interesting and complex character. Griffiths is a hooker who strikes up a relationship with the dad.
"The White Palace", from Johnny Web
I guess it's cultural clash day. James Spader is a workaholic 27 year old widower in an advertising agency. Susan Sarandon is an uneducated 43 year old minimum wage waitress/cashier at White Palace (a thinly-disguised White Castle). A series of coincidences brings them together. They are each sheltering a lot of pain, and they seem to find solace in each other.
It's not a very honest film. I found two things disturbing. In the midst of the naturalistic drama, suddenly arrives Sarandon's psychic sister - and she's not some kind of white-trash-I'll-believe-anything psychic. Nosireebob - she's the real thing - she has the sight. What's that all about? Perhaps a cheap plot device to reveal details about Sarandon's past that the character herself won't talk about? The movie has a happy ending. They realize that Sarandon can never fit into his world, so Sarandon leaves town. Spader quits everything - his job, his family, his friends, and runs to her side. I don't know about that. No problem with my understanding that he loves her because she's really a great person and sexy as hell. And I think they can resolve the age difference. After all, Sarandon is doing that in real life with Tim Robbins. But Robbins and Sarandon are soulmates. In the movie, I don't buy how they will ever solve the cultural barriers. The movie makes it absolutely clear that they have nothing to talk about. They don't share the same tastes in anything. Sooner or later they have to get out of bed. What do they do then? Hard to see how this could come to a happy ending.
"Against All Odds", from Tuna
Chatted about this movie yesterday. Today Tuna presents his version. It turned out to be quite smart that I didn't look at Tuna's before doing mine, because he took a different approach, and you benefit from it. The wet white dress scene. Super! more of the wet white dress a Rachel Ward "upskirt" that I missed completely more of the Rachel Ward "upskirt" the deleted scene of Ward naked on the beach. This is the one where the director lamented the absence of a widescreen version. the "sweat room" - Ward's nipple and part of her pubic area are partially visible a hint of her buns that make us cry for more
"Capone", from Jimmy the Saint
His holiness sent me some really rare video footage. What a collection he must have. Unfortunately, they are so lengthy as to be impractical on my high-volume pages, but here they are for you members. Maybe one of you guys can post them elsewhere - where more people can see them - hint ??? One of his treasures is the scene in Capone where Susan Blakely rolls out of bed with her legs apart. (And it goes on long past that -1100 frames in a 5 meg .mpg clip. Click on the thumbnail to get the movie clip.
