I got my copy of Cern Zoo today. A nice book. Out of the nine issues of  Nemonymous, I am in three…which is nice.

Sono go no jingi naki tatakai (1979)

June 17, 2009

I think the English title of this film would be “Battles Without Honour and Humanity: Aftermath”

On IMDB it gets the absurdly low rating of 3.4.

Some arbitrary number. Because this is certainly a very great gangster film. From the excellent score to the superb cutting. Lots of bullets. Characters you actually care about. Japanese criminals fully loaded in white suits.

See it.

Here is a picture of a show my father, John Connell had at Dwight Hackett Projects in Santa Fe a while back which I like.

Recently seen films: comments

June 6, 2009

La tour de Nesle: A rather slow swashbuckler film only made watchable by the presence of Pierre Brasseur.

Senza ragione: A crime flic I watched in Italian. Normally the Italian versions of these things are better than the English, but here Telly Savalas was dubbed with such a stupid voice….But Franco Nero was good.

Una lunga fila di croci: A very good Italian western. One of the best films I have seen Anthony Steffen in and William Berger does an excellent job as a bounty hunter with a very elaborate gun.

Mare matto: A very good Italian film starring Jean-Paul Belmondo and Gina Lollobrigida. Definitely should be put into English on DVD.
