Sleuth (1972)




one location, two magnificent actors with an amazing affinity, a brilliant script and English humor. The games, the illusions, the uncertainty, the capsizing of events, this film appears complete and fluent (2 hours of pure entertainment) despite the only place where it is played is a simple mansion.
Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine are just impeccable, something that goes beyond acting
(well, aren't they always?)



it's hysterically funny too, I swear.

Indian Summer (1972)

Together with Monica, the woman who lives with him for ten years, arrives in Rimini professor Daniele Dominici, which is well cultured and writes poems, but that seems detached from everything: especially from school. Although he hasn't yet reached the age of forty, he seems to have already burned every desire and interest in life, preferring to simply survive.



The man then falls in love with one of her students, Vanina, a nineteen year old mysterious girl that has a dramatic past



If you like movies with lots of cultural references and poetic monologues, a winter story dipped in a melanchonic atmosphear, a great jazzy soundtrack, and the always handsome Alain Delon, you definitely should check it out.

ok this movie may not be that great, but it seriously has a curious and interesting plot, in which doctor Josef Mengele wants to recreate Hitler by cloning his blood and tissues, taken from him before his death, and giving birth to 94 children genetically identical to him.

AND PLUS, we have Laurence Olivier fighting against Gregory Peck

AND THE BEST LINE THAT GREGORY HAS SAID IN HIS ENTIRE MOVIE CAREER (well, almost)

Bunuel enjoys setting traps and pitfalls to the viewer, creating a schizophrenic and unpredictable female character played by two different actresses who rotate, from scene to scene, in a seemingly random way

this movie is so cute and simple, it's about the complex and sometimes comical relationships between the white and the Indian community, touching many issues such as homosexuality, racism and English economic policy of that period.

featuring a young and adorable Daniel Day-Lewis


my heart can't take all this cuteness

when a wealthy Mexican discovers that her daughter was impregnated by one of his employees, promises a reward of a million dollars to whoever brings his head to him.



Sam Peckinpah keeps the tension high for almost the entire duration of the film, defines a wonderful psychological portrait of the hero and puts some memorable scenes of delirium

directed by William Friedkin, shot on a low budget and allowing the actors considerable room to improvise as a result for a realistic and tenacious film that few people have watched

although the plot is not that rich, the film is able to maintain a high voltage for its entire duration. It remains an enjoyable thriller with the idea of an enemy that is not shown

Fish Tank (2009)


Fish Tank is an insanely realistic and incisive movie, about a misfit adolescent with the desire for justice that the reality of the social and environmental deprivation has failed to stifle. A really good movie that people often misunderstand.

Bleeder (1999)


young Mads Mikkelsen is always worth your time
especially when he's an obsessive cinephile that watches 4/5 movies a day.
Bleeder is a tense and violent psychologycal thriller by Nicolas Winding Refn with highly captivating and atmospheric
sequences, that really should be more famous

it could be the beginning of a horror classic, but Peter Weir actually imagines it as a fine representation of the drama in the eternal struggle of man against nature.



Picnic at Hanging Rock is a masterpiece that it is impossible to classify, having elements of horror, fantasy, the sentimental melodrama as well as the thriller even if there isn't a drop of blood, nor murder, nor a passionate kiss or a "real" magical event. It stands out with a dreamlike photography and everything comes together in a visionary and powerful work, not giving any response to the viewers, but involving them fully in this universe of sensations and disturbing questions.

this movie keeps some typical features of the genre horror-thriller, but it is mainly focused on the psychology of pain caused by a loss, and what effect the death of a child can have on a couple's relationship.



it has a sophisticated use of color and light, and features one of the best sex scenes ever.
A true little gem if you're into 70's horror movies

Phenomena (1985)


this is probably Dario Argento's last good movie, full of friendly and adorable maggots, spiders and all sorts of insects that'll creep you out



it also features one of the most haunting soundtracks in a horror movie

Two Evil Eyes (1990)


i'm sorry, but I just love 80's horror movies, and I think I watched them all. The film is split into two separate tales based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe ("The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar", directed by George A. Romero and "The Black Cat" directed by Dario Argento)
and the best thing is


HARVEY KEITEL IS IN IT

I remember watching it when I was a child and thinking "that man is so evil. I like him."
