A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (dir: Stanley Kubrick, R) - Thom says, "Recently, a friend told me that he 'tried' to watch A CLOCKWORK ORANGE for the first time; he said that the film was 'sooo boring.' Boring? This movie was one of the first non-pornographic films to earn an 'X' rating. This film was banned in the United Kingdom for twenty-seven years. Copycat gangs of droogs ravaged cities for years to come. Stanley Kubrick’s use of music ('Singing In The Rain' during rape? WTF?) bested his own previous breakthrough in 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. Ludovican technique with the eye thing? Terrifying. Anyways, watch everything Stanley Kubrick made, starting with this old, boring film."
BEDKNOBS AND BROOMSTICKS (dir: Robert Stevenson, G) - Michelle says, "As an adult, I realize that Angela Lansbury is the more compelling protagonist in the MARY POPPINS/BEDKNOBS AND BROOMSTICKS competition, though at the time I started watching both, I was just looking for my standard mix of live and animated action with song and dance numbers. Julie Andrews may play a great austere but magical nanny, but Lansbury’s character is more human from the start as a frazzled witch. She stiffly rejects any sort of intimacy until three young refugees from London are foisted on her in the midst of the war. Of course, her maternal instincts erupt when a man comes onto the scene, but it’s easy to ignore the gender-coded subtext if you’re eight and you like talking animals."
PLAY MISTY FOR ME (dir: Clint Eastwood, R) - Greg says, "Clint Eastwood made his directorial debut with this shocker that manages to rip-off FATAL ATTRACTION even though it was made 20 years earlier. Actually, I guess that means FATAL ATTRACTION ripped this off. Whoa. Talk about having your perceptions realigned. Anyway, Clint plays this male slut disc jockey on the late shift in stunning Carmel, California. Jessica Walter, Lucille Bluth from ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, plays an obsessed one-night stand that decides to destroy his life rather than be rejected. Don’t worry. Clint kills her."
WALKABOUT (dir: Nicolas Roeg, GP) - Greg says, "What can I say about a movie that taught me that nature is good and society is bad? Nicholas Roeg’s visual stunner about a brother and sister lost in the Australian outback with only a young Aborigine boy for guidance still ranks as one of the most important films to emerge from the counterculture. Speaking for myself, it sparked a lifelong interest in Didgeridoo music, Jenny Agutter, and movies created under the influence of vast quantities of drugs."
