3- To live and die in LA (William Friedkin )

Roger Ebert 01.11.1985:

I like movies that teach me about something, movies that have researched their subject and contain a lot of information, casually contained in between the big dramatic scenes. 

« To Live and Die in L. A. » seems to know a lot about counterfeiting and also about the interior policies of the Secret Service. The film isn’t just about cops and robbers, but about two systems of doing business, and how one of the systems finds a way to change itself in order to defeat the other.

6 – Re Animator (Stuart Gordon)

image

Roger Ebert 18.10.1985:

One of the most boring experiences on Earth is a trash movie without the courage of its lack of convictions. If it only wants to be cynical, it becomes lifeless in every moment – a bad dream on the screen. One of the pleasures of the movies, however, is to find a movie that chooses a disreputable genre and then tries with all its might to transcend the genre, to go over the top into some kind of artistic vision, however weird.

Stuart Gordon’s « Re-Animator » is a pleasure like that, a frankly gory horror movie that finds a rhythm and a style that make it work in a cockeyed, offbeat sort of way. It’s charged up by the tension between the director’s desire to make a good movie, and his realization that few movies about mad scientists and dead body parts are ever likely to be very good. The temptation is to take a camp approach to the material, to mock it, as Paul Morrissey did in « Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein. » Gordon resists that temptation, and creates a livid, bloody, deadpan exercise in the theater of the undead.

12- After Hours (Martin Scorsese )

image

Roger Ebert 14.01.2009:

« After Hours » is not routinely included in lists of Scorsese’s masterpieces. Its appearance on DVD was long delayed. On IMDb’s ranking of his films by user vote (a notoriously unreliable but sometimes interesting reflection of popular opinion), it ranks 16th. But I recall how I felt after the first time I saw it: wrung out. Yes, no matter that it was a satire, a black comedy, an exercise in style, it worked above all as a story that flew in the face of common sense, but it hooked me. I’ve seen it several times since, I know how it ends, and despite my suspicion of « happy endings, » I agree that Paul could not have been left to die. I no longer feel the suspense, of course, because I know what will happen. But I feel the same admiration. « An exercise completely in style, » Scorsese said. But he could not quite hold it to that. He had to make a great film because, perhaps, at that time in his life, with the collapse of « The Last Temptation, » he was ready to, he needed to, and he could.

This 1985 film from Russia is one of the most devastating films ever about anything, and in it, the survivors must envy the dead.
