    Point Blank (1967).
    I would describe it as neo-noir. I read that director John Boorman was influenced by French new-wave cinema and applied elements to this film. Very minimalist with a sometimes non-linear storyline. Very ahead of its time.

    This movie is so good. I never saw an older film in which a guy gets hit squarely in the nuts.

    That's another one my girlfriend had me watch. I thought the first half was fun but the second dragged for me.

    Another Ryazanov film that was shilled to me recently was Station for Two which I very much enjoyed. 4/5

    Bill & Ted: Face the Music on Hulu

    Not unlike Coming 2 America, here's an unnecessary sequel that entertains well enough. There are some funny bits here and there.

    More Classic Australian films

    Death in Brunswick (1990) By the late 80's all the arty intellectuals were getting nostalgic about the share house they lived in while at universally and tried to outdo each other with who lived in the filthiest, rat infested conditions. Dogs in Space probably wins but this comes pretty close. The main character (played by Sam Neill) is supposed to be sympathetic but he gets more and more despicable as the film goes on
    Gallipoli (1981) Australia's most bankable director (Peter Weir), writer (David Williamson) and star (Mel Gibson) in a film about hicks from the sticks enlisting in WWI. The last 20 minutes as as good as you'll ever see in an anti war film.

    Gallipoli is a ripper film. I used to live in a street called Gallipoli St south of Sydney and every year, we used to celebrate Gallipoli Day ......

    Gambit from 1966.
    And so my Blu-ray collecting ends with a whimper.

    Not a terrible movie, and fun the first time, first couple times, for me. (This being my 3rd or 4th). Arrived yesterday.
    Pretty dated movie, fluff but okay. Reminds me I should see How To Steal A Million sometime. Or maybe not.

    Oh and I love Shirley MacLaine's beauty from back then; it helps a lot, watching this.

    The screencaps on DVDBeaver sure did and do look nice, color-wise.....

    El Camino (2019)

    Was late to the Breaking Bad party and only finished the series a few days ago, so naturally I followed it up with El Camino. I share the same opinion as virtually everyone else I've heard talk about it, it's entertaining but inessential and only really serves people who are a big fan of Aaron Paul's character in the show and want more of him.

    Well directed film by Sydney Pollack staring Robert Redford. I'd give it a 7.1.

    "Angst" (Fear) (1983, Kargl) (Criterion streaming):

    This one belongs with the Grim Ones like "Henry" and "Martyrs".

    A man is released from prison. His mind is filled with violent sexual compulsions and ghastly childhood memories, and he is perfectly honest about his "needs" and what it takes to fulfill them.
    From the start, it's clear this is going to be an ugly ride; rehabilitation is far down the list here.

    Erwin Leder gives a performance for the history books as the un-named psycho. Leder is perhaps best remembered as the nervous-wreck engineer Johann from "Das Boot"; here he brings sweaty, compulsive tension to a man completely in the grip of his obsessions. The man is both deeply disturbed and convinced he can get away with it.

    At one hour and twenty minutes, the film is just long enough. It's a chamber play of sorts, one of sickness, violence and the dark of the soul. It will stay with you.
