Movie Diary 9/30/2013

The Harder They Come (Perry Henzell, 1972), and Django (Sergio Corbucci, 1966). Two for a cult-movies class. The weird thing is, there’s a clip from Django that plays a significant role in The Harder They Come – maybe the earliest moment of grindhouse cinema cross-pollination that  would become a signature of the Quentin Tarantinos of the world?

Bad Milo (Jacob Vaughan, 2013). A demon resides in the bowels of an ordinary man (Ken Marino), and somewhere David Cronenberg nods in approval. The movie’s funny, but not spoofy, and actually knows what it’s doing. (full review 10/4)

Who Saw Her Die? (Aldo Lado, 1972). Even if you are a George Lazenby fan, steer clear of this arty giallo. It has a Morricone score, and lots of shots of Venice, all of which is nice for a nap.
