The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967)

The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967)

One of Roman Polanski's more overt comedies, this 1966 monster spectacle stars Jack MacGowran and Polanski as a clunky but heroic pair of vampire killers. Called upon to rescue the beautiful and buxom daughter (Sharon Tate) of an innkeeper from a Draculalike bloodsucker, the duo muddle through all sorts of scrapes, the most intense being a scene in which a room full of dancing vampires realize the human interlopers are the only ones in the room who are reflected in a mirror. Scary and funny, the film has some unforgettable set pieces, a terrific score, one of the few records of Tate's extraordinary beauty, and vibrant performances. One of my favorite movies!!

The film is based on the Orphean myth and on Giuseppe Verdi's opera La Traviata. It tells the story of a young, English poet Christian who falls in love with the star of the Moulin Rouge, cabaret actress and courtesan Satine. Both characters break out into love songs of all my favorite hits.

Another undervalued show. This one's about a pie maker/detective who as a child finds out he has a mysterious talent of bringing the dead back to life with one touch, but he only has 60 seconds to keep them alive before he has to touch them again. Except he accidentally comes across his childhood love on one of his investigations and can't kill her again... so the lovers can't touch, which makes for an interesting show.

Screenwriters rarely develop a distinctive voice that can be recognized from movie to movie, but the ornate imagination of Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation) has made him a unique and much-needed cinematic presence. In Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, a guy decides to have the memories of his ex-girlfriend erased after she's had him erased from her own memory--but midway through the procedure, he changes his mind and struggles to hang on to their experiences together. In other hands, the premise of memory-erasing would become a trashy science-fiction thriller; Kaufman, along with director Michel Gondry, spins this idea into a funny, sad, structurally complex, and simply enthralling love story that juggles morality, identity, and heartbreak with confident skill. The entire cast--Jim Carrey, Kate Winslet, Kirsten Dunst, Elijah Wood, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Wilkinson, and more--give superb performances, carefully pitched so that cleverness never trumps feeling. A great movie. --Bret Fetzer

  • Remember back in the day when children in movies were ugly? What happened? Now kids in movies are little mini models. I hate that. Kids are suppose to be ugly and awkward. Then they blossom. Sorry, I'm still mad at China over that... Remember back in the day when children in movies were ugly? What happened? Now kids in movies are little mini models. I hate that. Kids are suppose to be ugly and awkward. Then they blossom. Sorry, I'm still mad at China over that whole thing... Anyway, there are ugly children in this movie. They sing songs. They dance and make pouty sour faces until MARY POPPPPINSSS (Oprah voice) flies into town to sprinkle their lives with magic! This movie is evidence that EVERYONE was high in the 60's.

  • One of the best science-fiction series ever on television, this show was cut too short. The series is MUCH better than the movie, and lots of fun. Kind of like Star Trek, but with more humor.

I try to see this movie at least once a year, as I grow older Brazil seems to make more and more sense - it is prophetic, and gives a great sense of perspective about the absurdities of our bizarre social norms. Personally, I think this is one of De Niro's most endearing roles...he's so NOT De Niro, but my absolute favorite perormance/character/message in the whole film is Katherine Helmond's (a la Who's The Boss) role as Ms. Ida Lowry. This movie is a classic for sure, and so very very Beep.
