There were so many decent ones over at Crackle that I had to divide the post into two parts. Next time we head over to PopcornFlix.
Possibly the best movie that year, it works because it’s about more than it appears to be on the surface.
Postcards From the Edge
Carrie Fisher’s semi-autobiographical dark comedy about addiction and Hollywood.
One of my top 3 films of the 1960s. It’s a journey into the heart of America, and it’s pretty great.
Once Upon a Time in Mexico
Robert Rodriguez does what he does, but bigger this time. Johnny Depp as a quirky CIA villain, Cheech shows up as a priest. It’s fun satire.
Ben Kingsley as a psychiatrist who’s more fucked up than his drug dealer patient.
Tarantino brings his verbose underworld characters to life again, this time with an Elvis fetish.
Peggy Sue Got Married
Subverts the idiot culture of the 1950s, as Peggy Sue goes back in time and finds that she was perhaps misled on what life is about.
Funny high-concept relationship comedy, may have inspired me a bit for my next project. She told him not to give her any alcohol.
The Cable Guy
He’s only looking for a friend. Will you be his friend?
Modern Blaxploitation movie that is hilarious, full of satire and ass whoopin.
Technically a kids’ movie, but it’s a great movie about a game that may be real, like Jumanji in space.
There are more at Crackle that you may like better, and you’d, of course, be wrong.
