Dennis Schwartz @ Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews
Eden and After
- Excerpt: Fairly summarized as ‘Alice in Wonderland’ meets ‘Justine’ meets ‘The Trip,’ ‘Eden and After’ is what happens when a dyed-in-the-wool Surrealist (and unrepentant bondage fetishist) makes an acid movie for the collegiate set, composing the experimental script on principles analogous to the serial music of Pierre Boulez.
The Gypsy Moths
Les Enfants Terribles
My Dinner with Andre
- Excerpt: It’s more accessible than it sounds. And, if you engage with it, it’s also more dramatic than it sounds.
Touch of Evil
- Excerpt: Just a touch? Why so modest? Orson Welles is pure evil in this classic noir thriller, which showcases him as screenwriter, director, and star of a border tale drenched in sleaze, corruption, betrayal, and murder.
- Excerpt: Westworld feels like the birth of something, perhaps the modern science-fiction action film itself.
