Part 3, episode "2 cuori & 1 capanna"
Fallo is the latest movie from Tinto Brass, the czar
of Italian medium-core erotica. The Tint-man is 73 now, and directed
his first film way back in 1963, but is still up to his old tricks.
This particular effort is a collection of six short stories, and some
of them are pretty damned sexy. They are similar in imagination
and romanticism to the best Zalman King erotica, but without the
infernal teasing and excessive camera movement that almost always
causes Zalman to disappoint. Tinto, unlike Zalman, not only promises
the goods, he also delivers them.

"Mrs. Henderson Presents"
Mrs. Henderson Presents (2005) is a show business musical based on the actual Windmill Theater in Soho, which convinced the Lord Chamberlain to permit female nudity on stage as long as the women didn't move. The argument was that the motionless women on stage were no different than a Botticelli in the Royal Museum. Started by Mrs. Henderson after her husband died, leaving her quite well off, it was directed by Vivian Van Damm. The theater refused to shut down during the blitz in WW II. As it was below ground, they argued it was safe. Once more, they had continuous performances.
The film chronicles the history of the theater, as well as a relationship between Mrs. Henderson and Vivian Van Damm. Both were headstrong. Mrs. Henderson was filthy rich, and not overly blessed with awareness or tact.Van Damm, for his part, was a professional, but perhaps a little too stuffy. The two main roles were performed by two giants, Judy Dench and Bob Hoskins, and they owned the parts.
Much of the film shows actual production numbers, and includes the tableau nudity. Kelly Reilly was the star of the shows, and the other women, while equally naked, were mostly shown in groups, and had very little substance in their roles. Everyone did full frontal and rear in medium long shots, and close up breast shots.
IMDb readers say 7.1. Ebert and Berardinelli agree on 3.5 stars. It was nominated for numerous acting awards. The film moves effortlessly from humorous to poignant, and had me spellbound. This is in the top ten movies that I have seen from 2005. B.
'Caps and comments by Dann:
Some nice plot twists are featured in this 2006 horror flick, but at the end of the day, what we wind up with is a fairly lame B-movie. Of course, that also means some nice looking women and some decent nudity.
A young woman and her father are involved in a terrible traffic accident. He dies, and Michelle is saved only after months of reconstructive surgery. She has no real recollection of the accident or the events leading up to it, nor even of her parents. After rehabilitation, she is sent to a halfway house, because she has no relatives, has a record for trying to stab her father's girlfriend, and is suspected of having something to do with causing the accident. When she is taken to her house to collect her things, she finds books of satanic rituals and worship, but she doesn't remember anything about them.
At the halfway house, she meets three other teens, all troubled due to drugs or other problems. The place is run by a married couple whose only real interest is the money they get from the state, plus what the wife can make by stealing the kid's things and selling it on eBay.
During her stay, Michelle is constantly troubled by bad dreams including dreams of her dead father, and satanic rituals. Eventually, things turn rather nasty for the inhabitants of the house.
The plot and storyline aren't bad, but the rest is B-movie dumbness all the way. Still, it kept me entertained.

WOMEN JUDGE MEN IN UNDER 30 SECONDS
Tip For Guys: "Breath Mint" - Prof. Richard Wiseman of the University of
Hertfordshire found that women make up their minds about potential partners
a lot faster than men do, and men are more thoughtful than they get credit
for. Wiseman put 100 singles through 10 speed dates. He found that 45
percent of women decided to accept or reject a date in under 30 seconds,
while only 22 percent of men made up their minds that fast. Most men
wanted more time to think about it. Wiseman said men are painted as
shallow, but it turned out women are twice as likely to make snap judgments
of others, which means men have only a few seconds to make a good
* So wear something that impresses a woman immediately, like a necktie
that lights up, or a really funny T-shirt.
* Before a man makes a commitment, he wants to take the time to really get
to know what the woman looks like naked.
* Women have to decide fast: they aren't gonna waste more than 30 seconds
off their biological clocks.
DRINKING IN BARS LEGAL AGAIN IN TEXAS
That Email Was Just The Booze Talking - After being hit with a nationwide
backlash, including an email suggesting they "die in a fire," the Texas
Alcoholic Beverage Commission has stopped sending agents to arrest people
for getting drunk in bars, even if they weren't planning to drive. Bars in
the Dallas suburb of Irving reported business down 30 to 40 percent and
conventions were being canceled. With the Texas Legislature about to
reconsider their budget, a TABC spokesman said they won't end the program,
but will pull back until they decide how best to proceed.
* They may stop busting people for drinking in public bars and start
busting them for exposing themselves in public restrooms.
* From now on, they will only arrest people in bars that Texas Legislators
* You can't smoke or drink in bars anymore, so I guess people just go
there for the dart tournaments.
NOTE FROM PAT! The TABC are morons. Our neighborhood recently tried to
get a "Beer To Go" store shut down. The TABC rejected us, ruling that a
drive-thru liquor store was a "neighborhood improvement." So they think
it's unacceptable to drink in bars, but it's great to hand cases of booze
to drivers who don't even get out from behind the wheel. The TABC is proof
that you don't need liquor to suffer brain damage.
