  1. I’m drawing a blank again, although inspired by your Peckinpah posts I’ve picked up The Killer Elite on DVD this week. I’ve heard mixed things about it, but with Robert Duvall and James Caan I’m sure it will be worth a watch.

  2. The Killer Elite is a great one in my opinion 🙂 As you can see by my posts, I love every single film that Sam Peckinpah ever directed 🙂 Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂

  3. I’m going to search out Anger Face. Haven’t seen it or heard of it. I really like Advise and Consent and Where the Sidewalk Ends. Now that I’ve gotten a feel for your “specific” taste I can see why you like Bunny Lake is Missing. It’s right there in your wheelhouse, but your fidelity to superb filmmaking keeps you from elevating it even higher. Am I right?

  4. Oh by the way, John, speaking of “Bunny Lake” have you seen the Vanishing? I’m talking about the original foreign film. It is an amazing film. I absolutely love it. I have a post on it too. The first one I ever wrote, if your interested.

  5. Once again, as with The Peckinpah and Siegel posts, I plan on doing an updated one on this post in a month or two depending on If I can finish them that fast 🙂

  6. Yes, I have seen the original Vanishing and yes it is amazing 🙂 I will check out that post right now and once again, keep those comments coming 🙂

  7. Okay. One more for now…Have you seen The Silence by Baran bo Odar? It’s German.
    It’s right up there with The Vanishing. If you haven’t seen it, you must. Very dark, but profound. Thanks for the links again.
