Grand Duel

To catch a Cleef.


Western

Rod Lott
Lee Van Cleef enjoyed a secondary career in Italy cranking out spaghetti Westerns, with little regard to quality. However, 1972’s Grand Duel — aka The Big Showdown — is deserving of its Grand label. No wonder Quentin Tarantino borrowed its sweeping theme song by Luis Bacalov for Kill Bill; you'll recognize it in two notes.

Electra Glide in Blue

The best ’70s cult classic you’ve never heard of.


Drama

Rod Lott
James William Guercio has one of the finest track records in cinema history, because each and every film he directed not only has been great, but became a cult classic. It is titled 1973's Electra Glide in Blue.

Women Who Kill

More like maim.


Comedy

Rod Lott
An hour of stage comedy by female stand-ups, Women Who Kill errs in putting its not-so-secret weapon right upfront: Amy Schumer, who might just be the funniest person in America right now. Even her throwaway lines (“Do you ever have Oxycontin mouth?” she asks no one, rhetorically) pierce the flesh.

Blue Jasmine

Woody Allen's latest is immersed in melancholy as the tale of one woman's yearning for normalcy.


Drama

Aimee Williams
Cinema has seen its fair share of manic females and nervous breakdowns, but no one captures bourgeois-Anglo neurosis as astutely as Woody Allen.
