Moviedrome Mondays: Trespass (1992) (Mark Cousins intro)

Season 9 and the two that follow happen to be the shortest seasons of Moviedrome to date.

Since I could not find a youtube video link to Moviedrome presenter Mark Cousins introduction to Walter Hill’s 1992 action-thriller Trespass, readers will have to rely on Cousins intro transcript here. The episode’s original airdate was September 20, 1998 (read here). I really do not have anything to add except that it is a very good Walter Hill film. If any of you readers are interested, here is a list of my favorite Walter Hill films (read here).

Moviedrome Mondays: Storyville (1992) and Ruthless (1948) (Mark Cousins intro)

This week’s Moviedrome Monday entry is a double-bill consisting of a political thriller and a drama.

Storyville (1992)

Since I could not find a youtube video link to Moviedrome presenter Mark Cousins introduction to Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost’s 1992 directorial debut Storyville, readers will have to rely on Cousins intro transcript here. The episode’s original airdate was January 11, 1998 (read here). It has been a long time since I saw this film, so a rewatch is in order, but I am a huge fan of Frost, David Lynch and Twin Peaks all together.

Ruthless (1948)

I have posted a youtube video link below to Moviedrome presenter Mark Cousins introduction to legendary cult director Edgar G. Ulmer’s 1948 drama Ruthless. Readers can also read Cousins intro transcript here. The episode’s original airdate was January 11, 1998 (read here). I am in total agreement with Cousins thoughts here and yes, it really does come off feeling like Ulmer’s own Citizen Kane – albeit, with only half of the latter’s budget. If any of you readers are interested, here is a list of my favorite Edgar G. Ulmer films (read here).
