The Krays (1990)

The Krays (1990)

Director Peter Medak's gritty voyage into the world of organized crime in 1960s London is a disturbing character study of the two most frightening and influential gangsters to ever come out of England, Ronnie and Reggie Kray. The ingenious casting of former pop icons Gary and Martin Kemp (of Spandau Ballet) as the powerful Kray brothers works well, establishing an eerie, unspoken connection between the two that is unsettling and extremely daunting. A must see film that is gripping from beginning through to the bitter end! On VHS in the US and DVD in the UK.

Their performance of classic blues hits are naughty, gritty, sexy, funny, fuzzed out gems. Spill...

A small disclaimer: I'm not a big fan of mystery or suspense novels, meaning that I haven't read many, so entering into the new Pynchon novel cold was a bit more of an endeavor than I expected. It occurred to me at some point that in a mystery or suspense novel, you have a main character that you will eventually, if at all, learn more about. For me, that's a very hard way to get my attention and foster my sympathy for a fictional person. I need something more to work with, particularly at the beginning of a book. With that said, I don't think Pynchon is up to his best work here. I felt his work lacked the depth and dimension of his previous books, and he relied too heavily upon static situations that were loosely strung together and seemed to have no use other than for titillation or low brow comic effect; the characters were more caricatures and stereotypes of common and popular social figures: stoners, surfers, policemen, detectives, and nymphets, which gets old really fast. I felt that the novel didn't begin to develop until one third of the way in, and his writing really didn't start moving until the last fifth of the book. For die hard Pynchon fans, this will be a must have book and good read comparable to The Crying of Lot 49, but it's hardly classic Pynchon, and to me it doesn't stand up to his better crafted works. If you are a die hard Pynchon fan, you'll probably love it. In that case, I can highly recommend it, yet I would have a hard time giving the same recommendation to others.

It's said to be the major influence for "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band" and repeatedly sited as one of Elton John, Eric Clapton and many others favorite albums. Me, I simply think it's the single best album to listen to in the summer!

  • Got this from my parents last week and it's amazing. I've already seen the whole show so far, but the subtleties and great acting and costumes and tone will make me go back for more.

My mom bought this for me in college, and it is still one of my favorite books of poetry. Nikki Giovanni rose to prominence in the 60's as a voice in the Black Arts Movement, but her poetry is more than a call for Revolution. Her poems beautifully articulate the journey of the human experience.

Formerly a prim, plump and overlooked secretary to man-about-town Ewan McGregor, Renee Zellweger throws him for a curve when she re-enters his world as an allegedly accomplished and soon-to-be-published author. The battle of the sexes never looked so good in this well-dressed film, which also features the wily David Hyde Pierce.

A bittterly sweet and sweetly bitter story of two struggling actors at the end of the most iconic decade of the last century. It's hands-down one of the funniest movies I've ever seen and at the same time breaks my heart with each and every viewing. The story behind the film is nearly as fascinating as the film itself and I'm thrilled to bits that Criterion has given it the attention it so rightly deserves.
