"The Proposal" (2000)

I just watched the best thriller I have seen in a long while, and then, as usual, went to IMDB to see what others thought of it. I was amazed to discover that this wonderful film had no US release in theaters, and no reviews. The one comment at IMDB is right on the money. Only 14 have voted so far, but have it at 7.6/10. My vote should slightly raise the score. I am at a loss to explain why a film that is more entertaining than at least two of last years Best Picture nominees could not secure a US release. It is possible that it was made as a pilot for a TV series, especially given that it stars Jennifer Esposito.

Terry Martin (Nick Moran) is deep undercover, trying to put away bad guy Simon Bacig (played to perfection by Stephen Lang). When he suddenly needs to produce his fictional wife for a party, he is assigned a rookie officer, Esposito, who immediately entangles herself in the case and becomes his full-time partner. As a cop that has survived under cover by trusting nobody, and by being anally careful, Nick is not thrilled to suddenly have a partner, but is immediately and strongly sexually attracted to her. She seems to feel the same attraction. That is the set-up, and, since I am calling this a must rent, I won't spoil any of the surprises.

The film manages a complex plot, with plenty of plot twists, and has not one word of voice-over, and very little purely expository scenes. Not only that, but all of the plot twists are believable, and justified from the beginning of the film. Art design is better than required for a film of this genre, and the photography was clear, with no distracting effects, and a few artistic angles. It was the tight plot and the great performances, however, that made this film. My only criticism is that they made an R rated film, and didn't include nudity. Esposito does show minor cleavage. I have to give this film a B+. It is not an important film, and breaks no new ground, but it is a very very good one.

    "The Invisible Maniac" (1990)

    The Invisible Maniac (1990) is a send-up of invisible man films. Any send-up should have at least two elements. First, it should be funny. Sadly, the only humor in this film is accidental. The acting is way over the top, and a film can't gain "bad movie points" if it was intentionally made to be bad. The second element is naked women. This, The Invisible Maniac does, and does well. We have no less than 8 women showing breasts, and most of them, buns, including Savannah, Tracy Walker, Gail Lyon, Melissa Ann Moore, Kalie Shellabarger, Stephanie Blake, Debra Lamb and Dana Bently Konkel.

    This film is only available in VHS so far. It is a very long time since I capped a VHS, and boy am I rusty. It didn't help that the quality on this new tape was not good. If the film is ever released on DVD, I will definitely produce an upgrade.

    Noel Peters plays Kevin Dornwinkle, who, as a child at the beginning of the film, is caught watching a peep show by his mother, who berates him severely, and tells him all women are evil. Cut forward 20 years, and Doctor Dornwinkle is presenting his invisibility formula to a group of scientists, it doesn't work, they laugh and ridicule him, and he goes postal on them. He pleads a twinkie defense, and is placed in a mental home, which he escapes from, and turns up as a new High School physics professor. There, two important things happen. First, he perfects his formula, and second, the students start making fun of him. Invisibility is a real bonus when you are out to strip then kill High School girls, and a female principal who comes on to him. You get the idea.

    Maltin says BOMB, and IMDB readers have it at 2.2/10. It is an early directorial effort from Adam Rifkin (Detroit Rock City), and probably one he would like to forget. Nudity, B+, film F-.

    I looked at Tigerland. What are the chances that a 61 year old director, who has churned out a lifetime of Hollywood crap would not only find religion and subscribe to the Dogme rules, but would actually make a terrific movie that way? About one in a zillion. But Joel Schumacher did it. Plenty of nudity as well, although not very favorable to captures. These captures are terrible. I didn't have a DVD version, but Tuna promised to follow up as soon as he can.

    I looked at Pola X  This may not be as bad an interpretation of Melville as the Ethan Hawke Hamlet was of Shakespeare, but it's only because Melville sucked pretty deep to begin with. A very bad movie, redeemed partially by some good photography, Catherine Deneuve's bath and a gynecological, albeit dark, sex scene.

    These are from one of my favorite movies. When I saw it the first time in 1983, I was a kid. I was in love with Ute Christensen and suddenly I saw her naked. She was naked pretty much 66.6% of her appearance. For a 12-year old this is was ... challenging. Either way, I first did caps from this TV-movie almost three years ago. In these days I did caps form copies of copies, so the quality wasn't very good. But when I redid them I found out, that the movie was shot with a very grainy material. Perhaps it was some sort of videotaping. The result is horrible. It is very annoying to see the movie, when you hardly can tell what is happening. However, the story is great and I prefer it among the classic "Tatort" episodes. Ute has a one-night stand, at least that's what she thought it would be, with a taxi driver who draws and writes poems - and kills one-night stands. The murder was witnessed via telephone by Peggy (Hannelore Elsner). The taxi man finds out about her and starts to hunt her. Peggy herself is far from being cooperative with the police and the detective portraied by wood faced Karin Anselm. We learn a lot about the broken characters of the murderer and the witness. That's what makes it so special. The 3-dimensional characterization makes us shouting "No, Peggy, don't do that, don't open that door!!" Doing stupid things like these means one thing: It is a damn good movie. And I still love Ute.

    Not the best quality though as far as the pics are concerned, but it's due to original quality.
