"Enemies: A Love Story"

Enemies: A Love Story (1989) is either a character driven drama about Holocaust survivors in post WW II New York, or a character driven comedy about a guy wit three wives. Herman (Ron Silver) is a Polish Jew, who survived the war because their Catholic servant, Yadwige (Margaret Sophie Stein) hid him in a barn. His wife, Tamara (Anjelica Huston) was not as lucky, and was captured. When Herman heard of her execution, he married Tamara and brought her to live in Coney Island out of a sense of obligation. She is a peasant, dotes on him, and reminds him of things he would rather forget, so the passion in his life is from Masha (Lena Olin), another survivor. About the Time Masha starts making noises about a wedding, his first wife appears. Seems the bullets didn't actually kill her, and she sneaked out of the pile of corpses and escaped to Russia. So here is spineless Herman with three wives. Not surprisingly, he is not a happy man. In order to find happiness with any of them, he would have to make a commitment, and he is not capable of that.

Lena Olin provides the nudity in a sex scene that writer/director Paul Mazursky considers the best scene he has ever filmed, because he did the whole thing in one shot, going from fully dressed at one end of the room, to mostly naked in the bed at the other. We get numerous views of Olin's breasts during this scene.

Ebert loved this film at 3 1/2 stars, and it received three Oscar nominations. IMDB readers have it at 6.4 of 10. While performances from all four leads were outstanding, and this would generally be my kind of film, I couldn't really care for any of the characters. Tamara was hardened and didn't really need anyone, Masha was conniving and self-serving, Yadwige was a doting, wining non-entity, and Herman was a spineless wimp. At least Alan King, as a sleazy Rabbi, played a strong person. C.

  • Lena Olin (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20)


    Erótica (1979) was not the soft core I was expecting, but rather a tale about a love triangle from noted Mexican director Emilio Fernández. According to IMDB, he died August 6, 1983, and made or appeared in 116 films, including 5 after his death. His numerous awards include the Grand Prize at Cannes in 1947. This film stars Jorge Rivero, Jaime Moreno, and Rebeca Silva as the woman they both love. At the beginning, the two of them are cracking a safe. When they decide to dynamite it, it attracts security guards, and one of them is shot. The other escapes to a waiting boat, manned by Erotica (Silva). Cut to a year in the future, and the two are living in a remote town on the coast where people don't ask a lot of questions in a small hut outside of town. They earn enough for rum and cigarettes diving for sponges.

    On a trip into town to sell sponges, Erotica discovers that their friend didn't die after all, but was in prison, and has escaped. He follows her home, and her husband insists that he live wit them. Bad idea. Where the husband is lazy, drunk, and abusive to Erotica, his pal is good looking, respectful, and defends Erotica. It is only a matter of time until the sparks fly.

    As the film opens, we see a topless Erotica walking down the beach, and putting on a transparent peasant top. For the rest of the film, she is either topless, or wearing this see-through top. You have to see this to belive the breast jiggle when she is carrying baskets of sponges over her shoulders into town. The transfer could have been better, it is a 4/3 aspect ration, and the English subtitles are not optional. The good news is that dialogue is kept to a minimum. It is still awaiting 5 votes at IMDB, there are no linked reviews, and the only comment is really about a TV series of the same name. Rebeca Silva's 62 credits include Enemy of the State, Mars Attacks! and El Año de la peste. Even though the film had a moral (read unhappy) ending, I found it more than watchable, mostly due to good performances from the three leads. C+

    The Cat's Meow is Peter Bogdanovich's most recent comeback attempt. It is a pretty good flick. I liked it, but you may not, because it is a recreation of one version of the 1924 scandal involving a dead man on William Randolph Hearst's yacht. It does not attempt to present a balanced historical overview, or to explore alternatives, but rather simply to lay out the most common rumor as if it were true. It does not deny this, in fact goes out if its way to remind you that it's a mere bagatelle. I'm OK with that, as long as it is entertaining and doesn't pretend to be more that it is. The reason I said you may not like it is that you may have no interest in the recreation of a Hollywood scandal that happened 77 years ago, in which the names are unfamiliar or barely familiar to you. (I'm old enough to remember Charlie Chaplin and Louella Parsons, who lived to be 88 and 91 respectively, and I know just enough about the era to be familiar with most of the other characters, so it meant more to me than it might to you.)

    • Claudia Harrison - sorta topless, but almost no exposure. (1, 2)
    • Kirsten Dunst - it's a face shot. I just thought it was a really cool picture of "Kiki".

    Here's a bonus! I found one more picture of Debra Winger's naughty bits in The Sheltering Sky

    Here are the latest movie reviews available at

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Lawdog or Junior or C2000 or Realist or ICMS or Mick Locke, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    Today's topic for debate
    'Caps and comments by The Rawhide Kid:


    I did some creative altering with a Jennifer Anniston shot. The original B&W shot is one we see a lot of female celebs do... the ol 'knees up naked but not showing anything' pose.

    I've often wondered, being the little pervert I am, if by altering the photo, you could see if there was anything there to see. These were reasonably successful.

    You can see in the reverse image that there appears to be something there between her legs. In the really light positive shot, it begins to be more noticeable and in the medium positive, there it is! No one could doubt, seeing that, that Jennifer was indeed sitting there naked.

    What do you and the rest of the cappers think?
