ROSEMARY'S BABY (dir: Roman Polanski, R) - Michelle says, "Aside from featuring Mia Farrow’s best pixie hair cut ever and Ruth Gordon as the world’s nosiest neighbor, this Polanski shocker is most enticing in its disquieting moments of a new mother embracing the horrific in the form of her child. It starts halfway through when a ghoulishly made-up Farrow finally feels her baby move and begins laughing maniacally, and it culminates in a terrifying final scene in which Farrow stares, repulsed by the baby in its crib, and then dutifully goes to him. I love the nightmarish way that it takes on women’s phobias surrounding reproduction in terms of isolation, partnership, diet, and medication: a Satanic cult bewitches the pregnant woman’s husband (John Cassevetes), alienating her and feeding her herbal remedies that have her doubled over in pain. It’s all sharp and challenging and worth watching, but let’s just say that I avoided this one while I was pregnant."
PRETTY POISON (dir: Noel Black, R) - Greg says, "Anthony Perkins is terrific as a paroled mental institution resident who becomes attracted to a pretty teenaged cheerleader. Tuesday Weld plays the girl a little too eager to rebel against her mundane life. Their romance blossoms into a crime spree that recklessly increases in severity. And the only thing standing in the way of their love is her pesky mother."
STOLEN KISSES (dir: François Truffaut, Not Rated) - Bart says, "I'm not saying this movie's better than THE 400 BLOWS, or more ground-breaking than JULES AND JIM, or more moving than THE WILD CHILD, or more cinematic than DAY FOR NIGHT, but STOLEN KISSES is my favorite Truffaut and that's final. It's just a sweet little movie about youthful romance that contains more truth about the awkwardness of young adulthood than you'd think 90 breezy minutes could possibly contain. Plus, you get to see what that little trouble-maker Antoine Doinel's been up to to these past nine years."
