|TODAY's TOP STORY: I guess you probably know by now that Jennifer Lopez showed up at the Grammy's wearing little more than a bikini bottom. Strangely, I haven't been able to find any pictures that actually show any naughty stuff, but I don't have a clue how she kept everything covered. Here's everything I've seen so far: (#1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8, #9).|

|Another mixed bag this week.
First some new collages of Jane Russell, the possessor of
a gravity-defying set of 38's, from the 1943 Howard
Hughes flick "The Outlaw". The movie originally
had only limited release because of the scandal
surrounding Jane's cleavage. It may seem tame by today's
standards but back in those World War II days Jane made
more guy's pants wet then heavy artillery.
I also included some pics of Edie Falco, who plays Carmela Soprano on the popular HBO show the Sopranos. These are from the 1997 movie "Trouble on the Corner". Russell (#1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7) Falco #1, #2, #3, #4, #5,

Strangers", from Johnny Web
Tuna discussed this one the other day. It's the movie about Multiple Personality Disorder where (1) the clinical psychiatrist doesn't use the proper clinical name for it and (2) she has it herself. The director and screenwriter blew the entire mystery early in the picture, when DeMornay tells a neighbor, in all sincerity, that she doesn't have any Vodka in the house and he knows full well she does. She's totally confused, but we aren't. We know she must be suffering from the same thing she just described about a minute earlier, where one personality doesn't know what the other is doing. Well, I guess there were other little subtle hints, like her instantaneous metamorphoses from clinical professional to ranting lunatic, for example. The entire gimmick of the movie is to lead us to believe that many different suspects could be doing the crazy things like killing her cat and sending her dead flowers. The boyfriend who won't talk about his past. The jealous neighbor. The sinister father. The murderer she is evaluating in prison. I'll spoil all the fun for you. They are all red herrings. She did everything herself. It is one of her personalities stalking another.
I didn't do tons of collages. Tuna already covered all the scenes in his presentation, and the lighting was both dim and soft-focus in the bedroom scene. But I wanted to do some more of the "cage match" scene, just because I liked the artistic way the scene was shot, and I also liked the framing of a couple frames of lovemaking in front of a stained glass window. I think they came out pretty good, especially the first one. (#1, #2, #3, #4)
"Daughters of Darkness", from Tuna
Really odd genre classic. I think Mongoose must have written about this one at one time or another. Slow paced erotic horror film that is neither very erotic nor very scary, directed by Harry Kumel. It is not filled with enough action to please genre fans, but many consider it an offbeat masterpiece, ala "Ganga and Hess". The music and acting and dialogue are all typically cheesy to the point of hilarity, but the photographic quality is quite excellent and artistic, sometimes brilliant, as if Bergman or Tarkovsky or von Sternberg had decided to go slumming with a lesbian vampire flick.
Kumel was a protege and close acquaintance of the great Josef von Sternberg. He was also a serious student of the obscure (at least obscure to us non-Belgians) Belgian symbolist painters from the turn of the century, like Knopf and Spilaert, and he tried to mirror their compositions in his filmed images. He actually filmed all the exteriors at dawn and dusk to give the film an extra-murky haunted look.
If I were you, I would sample 5,6, and 8 from the Ouimet section, as they are pretty similar, and not much nudity (none at all in the later ones). If you like the genre, you probably want every single one of Rau. She's lovely, there's frontal nudity, and there are some nice images collected by Tuna. Andrea Rau (#1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8, #9, #10, #11, #12, #13) Danielle Ouimet (#1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8, #9, #10, #11, #12, #13, #14, #15, #16)
"Do the Right Thing", from Tuna
The legendary Spike Lee movie often considered a masterpiece, and the major reason why Spike is so famous. A slice of life day in the life of Bed-Sty, all of which eventually erupts in racial violence.
