Despite what Donald Trump says, the art of negotiation may be easier than you think.

Wake in Fright

G'day, mate? Hardly!


Thriller

Rod Lott
From 1971, Wake in Fright is a lost film recently and literally rescued from near-oblivion. While I can’t say I was familiar with it before its Drafthouse Films re-release, I’m glad it was saved. To have lost a work this good would have been a blow.

Parker

Stark raving average.


Action

Rod Lott
While it's admirable that Parker is dedicated to the memory of Donald E. Westlake, the legendary crime author who wrote two dozen novels about the character under the Richard Stark pen name, this Parker is not his Parker. It's Taylor Hackford's, and the director continues to apply his nondescript, workmanlike touch to average material (see Love Ranch, Ray, Proof of Life, etc.). He neither improves it nor harms it; he simply keeps it afloat.

Die! Die! My Darling!

Watch! Watch! Hammer fans!


Thriller

Rod Lott
File 1965's Die! Die! My Darling! under that now-dead subgenre dubbed "Grande Dame Guignol." The Hammer Films production may lack the dueling duo of two twilight-era titans of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? and the others, but truth be told, Tallulah Bankhead is fierce enough to provide all the fire it needs.

The Accursed

Not quite as bad as its title would suggest.


Drama

Rod Lott
No sooner has an annual meeting of war pals began that host Col. Price (Donald Wolfit, Lawrence of Arabia) announces to the gathered guests, all men but one, that a traitor lurks among them. He suspected as much, but having one friend show up with a knife in his back, literally, sealed the deal. Whoever is to blame most certainly is … wait for it … The Accursed!

You gotta hand it to state Republicans; they’re nothing if not consistent.
