Director: Blake Edwards
His 10th movie
My 9th movie watched from the director


Love stories revolving around an alcoholic/drug addiction are always tough to make to watch. Edwards does a good job never glamorizing the act and really makes the love and turmoil of the couple believable, even if the acting by some is not top-notch. While it is a comedy, I am surprised to see it come from the zany Blake Edwards. Maybe it was a subject close to his heart.

Strong leads that are perhaps too strong for the film's own good.

Lumet goes dark
Stehako's rating:
A sequel to one of Scorsese's favorites, "The Bad and the Beautiful" is actually also a film he has noted being a fan of and while it's not as good, it's still quite entertaining.
Stehako's rating:



Director: Robert Aldrich
His 13th movie
My 3rd movie watched from the director


This is an effective movie about two very unique sisters and their crazy relationship. It's depressing, scary, and quite entertaining. Crawford and Davis pulled off performances that will go in both their Top Fives for me. I loved the ending especially.

Melodramatic? Sure, but it is the best kind of melodrama offered in the late 50s and early 60s.
