||Thanks to all the
contributors who sent in enough today to give ol'
Johnny Web a break. It was Elya's birthday today,
and I'da been in a heap o' trouble if I worked
all day. Of course, it might have been worth it
to get out of the movie Elya dragged me to. To
explain his column a bit, Stone Cold got confused
and thought it was my birthday, not Elya's. But
then again, he never lets the facts get in the
way of a good rant.
sang", from Tuna
Tuna's comments: Levres
de Sang (Lips of Blood) is seen by many as
Rollin's best film. Some of his ardent fans see
it as one of his weaker ones. I think both groups
are correct. While it has some of the brilliant
imagery we expect from him, much of the film is
shot in modern surroundings, a lot of them
in-doors. It has a tight plot. A young man sees a
poster of a castle, and is reminded of his
forgotten youth and a girl he loved . He goes to
great pains to find out where the castle is, then
sets out to find the girl, who he discovers he
has always loved. Naturally, the girl is a
vampire, and was locked up by the boys mother.
The film has gratuitous
nudity, I know this sounds odd considering the
amount of nudity that is always in a Rollin film,
but there is a scene near the beginning with a
nude model, then the photographer wandering
around nude that is only there to add to the
naked body count. The Castel Twins are part of
the cast, but leave their clothes on for some
reason. I included two shots of them because they
are striking images. All other images have nudity
including full frontal.

Tuna's comments: I am
not one of the people who dislike this film. I
think the story within a story was a brilliant
plot device to make the large amount of narrative
more palatable. Kate was enchanting, and the
acting was first rate. The attention to detail
was also impressive. The film did drag for me
after the collision with the iceberg, but, all in
all, I like this film very much.
I like it, too. Maybe
not enough to predict the record box office, but
it works on many levels, and the production
values are impressive. Of course that is as it
should be, given the budget. For what they spent
on this movie, they could have purchased France.

Great stuff - a divx
format AVI film clip from Road Trip. Hot. Here is the clip Here is the zipped codec for
DIVX. This format increases in popularity every
day. Because of the compression techniques, it
gets quite a long clip into only one meg. You
probably want this installed, if you don't
already have it.
yesterday. This from the mailbox, from an
unimpeachable source: "the topless shots of
Amanda Peterson that GR posted are body double

Hours" Lorraine Bracco in "Even
Cowgirls Get The Blues" Malisa Longo in "Mean
Machine" Sally Kirkland in "In The

Scoop, this the inside stuff from Celebrity
Skin and Celebrity Sleuth. I got all the stuff in
Skin that was new to me. Looked like some rare
shit, but you and your crackas know more about
movies than me, and he got just about all movies
this issue. I never heard of any of em, but I
think the last one I saw was "Shaft".
Of course, that the only movie ever plays down
the street, except for "Sweet Sweetbacks's
Badass Song". I hate scannin vidcaps, cuz
they just come out lookin like shit vidcaps, but
just use what you want.
I only just made a small dent in Sleuth. He
got a mountain of shit, and all girl-on-girl
carpet cleaning material so I take it by the day.
Skin start here
Binoche, "The Lovers on the Bridge".
Startin' with Skin, here your girl Binoche. You
always say that she only got one look on her
face, but looky here, you seein' some real
variation. You think Jeremy Irons ain't funny?
Jeremy Irons is mothafuckin Richard Prior
compared to this sugah. This girl get Ingmar
Bergman kinda depressed just thinkin about her. Oksana Babiy
in The Sopranos. Rebekah
Carlton-Luff in "Leprechaun 4".
White women got a virtual monopoly on hyphenated
last names. Neva see a sista name of Latifah
