Great post again, Kim.

I'll be watching Warren in "The Parallax View" tonight. It's been a while.

Next month I'm going to seek out underrated films from the 80s (I mean, you never hear much about great "lost" 80s films). I'm going to start with Dennis Hopper's "Out of the Blue" & then Peter Yates' "Eyewitness". (Maybe an undiscovered gem? Haven't seen it yet.) Any suggestions?


Kevin Reynolds' "Fandango" is a great undiscovered 80's gem. So's his "The Beast," about a Russian tank crew lost in Afghanistan.

I still have to see "Ishtar," and I loathe "Bullworth," but so many others are great - "Parallax," "Shampoo" and especially "Reds." Peter Biskind has a great article in the new VF about the making of that movie, and supposedly his next book is a biography of Beatty, which should be pretty goddamn interesting.

again in Dick Tracy, it's too bad that the movie did so poorly that a
sequel was forever out of the question. At least, to paraphrase
Humphrey Bogart in that other great desert classic, "We'll always have

classic, please join my Yahoo group, "I Love Ishtar"
