Breakdown

Kurt Russell considers a smash-n-grab.

To settle an argument; it doesn’t really matter if you prefer to keep it to your right or your left, just keep it handy.

Verson Jetorix: “Kurt Russell and Kathleen Quinlan have car trouble in the middle of nowhere, and when Quinlan rides with JT Walsh to the next town, she disappears. Fun desert terror flick with a spectacular, if unbelievable, climax.”

Bloody Payroll

This should liven up the hostage situation.

Verson Jetorix: “Claudio Casinelli and his gang pull a heist that quickly goes wrong and he must avoid the cops and find the dough that two of the gang made off with. Mario Caiano’s crime noir has a dreary palette and unlikable characters. Silvia Dionisio brightens the proceedings.”

Claudio Cassinelli looks right thru Barbara Bouchet.  And that ain’t easy.

The game is getting blurry.

Thanks, Brad!

Verson Jetorix: “Claudio Cassinelli does some misguided revengin’ that destroys everyone around him before he finds out the truth. Fernando di Leo’s crime story is not exactly underrated but it is somewhat misunderstood. Its atmosphere of ennui is reflective of the characters and the genre, but also of Di Leo himself no doubt. If it was Peckinpah, they’d call it elegiac.”
