  • The Hot Rock

    The Hot Rock

    ★★★½

    A bit too loose for a real heist film and not loose enough for a comic caper, but very likeable and surprisingly well shot

  • Shock Treatment

    Shock Treatment

    ★★★★

    As with Idiocracy, you can tell they ran out of production time/$ but that fits right in with the satire

  • Sisters

    Sisters

    Don't think of Brian De Palma's mystery movies as dirty Hitchcock pastiche — think of them as the missing link between Hitchcock and everything else. And fwiw I bet the movies Hitchcock *wanted* to make were 10x dirtier.

  • Murder by Death

    Murder by Death

    Good actors doing broad impressions that haven't aged that well. Still not bad, but Clue is essentially a remake of this that holds up better. 3 stars but I'm going back and bumping Clue from 3.5 to 4
