    ASMR: Autonomous Sensory Murder Response



    A very, very generic amnesia noir and femme fatale/spurned incel set-up, but once it gets to Guy Fawkes Day it finally starts cooking. I wish I was named for Laird Cregar. Maybe I should start saying I am. "Yeah, my parents were total Cregar freaks."

    Les Crazies

    Far more "action" and gunplay than I would have expected from old Johnny Rollin. The image of Brigitte Lahaie carrying a burning branch and walking two giant dogs (a la Barbara Steele in Black Sunday) is pure gothic bliss. The image of a dying ghoul giving his wife's severed head a final smooch while jaunty synth pulses on the soundtrack is pure Eurohorror bliss.

    Masculin Féminin


    Jean-Pierre Leaud failing to look cool while flipping a cigarette up into his mouth, failing to find the right way to express his feelings, failing to engage in philosophy or poetry beyond laundromat soliloquies and record-your-own-record booths, failing to engage with politics beyond graffiti slogans and condescending interviews conducted with young women, failing to impress the projectionist with his knowledge of aspect ratios, and failing to impress anyone with his whistling.

    For a Few Dollars More


    The greatest meet cute in movie history is when Colonel Mortimer spots Monco in his spyglass looking back at him with binoculars, then later they shoot each other's hats.
