Or watch it with ‘Days of Wine and Roses’ for a great Hollywood alcoholism twofer. Blake Edwards’ one great thing, bit stagey and preachy but still hugely powerful. Lee Remick esp‘y note-perfect, and devastating in 2nd half. Or well it’s the script which links it to the stage, it ain’t a confined ‘one room’ film.
tremendous gems to be found within the Ozploitation rubble. Everything between Turkey Shoot and Wake in Fright. Next of Kin certainly ranks with the best of them.It's 80 Aussie horror, even if it's not a weird film, it's weird you watched it. I say this in a spirit of admiration, by the way.
I've been working through the Arrow Years of Lead box set. So far I've watched Vittorio Salerno's Savage Three and Mario Imperoli's Like Rabid Dogs, both brutal, bleak, lean and propulsive 70s crime flicks with common roots in A Clockwork Orange but without all the bollocks.

Out of the five films included on Years of Lead, which would you recommend I start with? I really enjoyed those Fernando Di Leo crime collection Raro sets. "That man deserves our honour!"
i enjoyed watching this last night partly because it felt like being on holiday in Bulgaria
