Fatman Niter (2020)
Genre: Action, Comedy, Fantasy, Thriller
Release: November 17, 2020
This is a horror movie that attempts to build suspense but doesn't quite get there. A group of amateur spelunkers get trapped in an old mine for weeks. They somehow survive on one canteen of water for that entire time, but finally hunger gets the better of them. They decide to draw lots and eat someone's arm. Not everyone agrees, but they do it anyway. Sure enough, no sooner do they eat the arm and they are rescued. The group decides to keep the deed a secret. Any accusations by the unwilling victim will be dismissed as the babbling of a madman who was injured in the cave-in. The cave-in is blamed for his missing arm.
Five years later the leader of the group receives a severed arm in the mail. The group reforms to discuss the event. One by one they are attacked by a hatchet-wielding killer. Some are maimed; others are killed. Soon we meet the one-armed man's daughter, whom we assume is the real killer. It becomes apparent that she isn't, but we're pretty sure it isn't the obvious choice. At the end we find that we were right - it's the one-armed man's son, whom we never knew about until now - with the help of the daughter. The one-armed man is in a catatonic state because of his arm. Seems unlikely, but that's the way it is. Rather than maim or kill the last survivor of the group, they lock him up in a small room with nothing but a knife. When he gets hungry enough, he will eat his own arm. The end.
This is the darkest movie I have ever seen. I don't mean dark noir; I mean dark no lighting. Over 99% of this thing was shot at night or in the dark - even the majority of the interior scenes are dark. It's really frustrating not being able to see.
Some bad movies are amusing to watch. This one is just bad.

Niter Words on Bathroom Walls
This is a fun work of fluffy fiction, not to be taken too seriously and I really like it. Do we even know if the character of Amy is an actual angel? No! She could just be a good hearted nut case. It hasn't been revealed and leaves it to your imagination...so far, anyway. The show doesn't have a heavy religious message, so after a hard day's work, it's just what you need to relax to. The show is funny, enjoyable and who doesn't love Jayne Lynch?! She's fantastic, bringing likability, humor and a bit of chaos to the part quite well! Through all her mildly annoying traits, she still manages to be helpful and kindhearted, so if there were a real message, I'd say that would be it!

Release: September 18, 2020
Niter The Nest
Don't listen to that other lady, who said it's major disappointment blablabla. I guess she must be generations earlier, since she was watching Belmondo. Of course, it's not an artistically-enriching movie or a Claude Lelouche masterpiece. But still, it nevertheless has great merits --- we must not compare all sorts of movies. That lady was saying it's not a Belmondo. Well, it's like comparing a Grace Kelly movie with The Matrix. Well, my dear, this movie is targeted to a young open-minded European audience. And I am sure many other young Americans loved it too. It's way much better than the average American teen movie. So when she's talking about an American remake, I don't think it will be any better simply because our boys are cuter.... lol. What I mean is that this movie really features young hot breathtaking French boys.... so at least I know it's quite worth watching... it's gorgeous.

The Comeback Trail Niter (2020)
Genre: Action, Comedy
Release: November 20, 2020
Niter The Comeback Trail
So I don't consider this a classic, as some other reviewers have labeled it. You really have to stretch the imagination to accept the premise that the first 30 people or so in line for the crown are suddenly killed and England, one of the largest and most powerful economies of the world, has to ask some D list lounge singer to be their new king. But I get it; this is a just-for-laughs fish out of water story, not a serious what-if film.
John Goodman, whose career was built on playing the middle-aged working class every man, does a decent job here portraying a beer drinking, football loving regular Joe who just can't stop creating uncomfortable moments around stuffy British people.
The gags are a bit of a mixed bag. When they develop in a way that's organic to the character and moment, they work pretty well. But for every good setup there is the overly forced one, such as when Goodman's character accidentally launches a greasy bird off his plate at a state dinner while trying to cut into it. The ensuing chaos sees every glass along a long, long table fall over like dominoes for nearly 30 seconds. The scene feels so desperate to hit the laugh; you can practically see the little charges going off to keep the glasses falling in comedic fashion past the horrified diners. The problem is, comedy is really hard. Even a whiff of desperation for laughs like that scene has turns funny into sad really quick.
The other part of this movie that's hard to swallow is the romance subplot. Hollywood knows that one of their major target demographics, middle aged guys, will identify with Goodman and so they supply the dream girl for the viewers alter-ego. In this case the movie asks us to believe that an insanely gorgeous 26 year old is just dying to fall in love with her dream guy: an obese man nearly old enough to be her father. When the leading man is Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt, yah OK I can believe that. But Goodman? I don't know, I just think an actress more age appropriate would have been easier to believe. The two here just don't seem like they go together.
My enjoyment of the film may have been effected by the fact that I don't care much for the concept of a monarchy, and I find arguments that keeping families in an artificial state of wealth and privilege is a good thing because they "serve the people" facile and ignorant. Note that the fantasy is always that you get to suddenly become royalty, never that you get to suddenly be a subject who gets sent to prison for not bowing properly or mouthing off. Monarchies are an outdated and brutish form of government best left in the history books, imho.
All in all, I managed to watch the whole movie, even if I wasn't enthralled the whole way thru. Passable entertainment.

Vanguard Niter (2020)
Release: September 30, 2020
One can write in details about a movie when either it impresses him a lot or when it turns out to be a complete disaster and a great waste of time for the viewer. But it's really tough and also uninteresting to write about a movie which simply leaves you midway and generates a confused kind of impact in the end. TURNING 30 is also one of those few new age movies, which though is based on a relevant and important subject but its end result is nothing more than a below average film made on a fine subject.
No doubt the basic idea behind the film looks like influenced by famous western projects such as BRIDGET JONE'S DIARY and SEX & THE CITY. But in order to create a more philosophical cum controversial kind of a film, its writer and the director move far away from the topic, giving way to the same old Bollywood kind of formulas in its second half.
As per the subject and its language, TURNING 30 is strictly meant for the urban audiences and that too only for the multiplexes. But after watching it, even the multiplex viewers may also feel like having seen something confusing because the film never justifies its meaningful title convincingly. It starts off pretty well with debutant director Alankrita Shrivastava focusing on the right things in the right manner. And its initial reels talk about the subject in a more specific way, with all those bold words and straight forwards dialogues. But later on the focus gets disturbed and one loses interest due to the script returning to the same old plots of the heroine penning a book on her personal experiences and finding her own way in the big bad world.
Ideally, TURNING 30 should have been made on the feelings, thought process and inner mindset of women who have reached that stage and how they tend to tackle the situation in their own way. A mix of 3-4 different stories of few distinctive ladies finding their own way to enter the 30s would have been a great script. But the present movie has only few initial moments talking about the basic theme and then the script starts moving into the same old set patterns post interval. And that's where it all falls flat making no impact of any sort on the viewer. As I felt, it should have been an insightful journey into the mind of lady turning 30 but sadly after its promising start, the film remains limited only to the visible physical changes in the body of a girl and never moves into the soul of an aging female mind anywhere in its latter reels.
Moreover, I simply cannot understand that if the directors of such films are so visionary and thoughtful of making a film on such a novel subject then why on earth they go on adding so many songs into it? Do they still believe that a Hindi Film cannot and should not be made without any songs? At the most, TURNING 30 needed only one song and that too, a sad one with some meaningful lyrics talking about dejection or un- acceptance. But strangely the songs do keep coming in at regular intervals which really are quite disturbing in such concept based movies. And here they even don't have any melody in them to calm you down.
Gul Panag as the leading character of the movie is fine and has broken many of her own set rules of the past in terms of boldness. But the writing gives her no support at all and lets her down completely. Purab Kohli is also good but again his role is not a well defined one in absence of any good reasons given for his coming back to Gul so passionately. Ira Dubey has only got a brief role in which she does well and the rest of the cast is strictly OK with everyone filling their parts to their best.
So, as a subject TURNING 30 had a lot to say and reveal but as a film it doesn't provide you enough explanation of its title theme. Still, if you really want to see it for any specific reason then you may watch it, but only after it gets released in the Home Video market.

Greenland Niter (2020)
Genre: Action, Thriller
Release: September 25, 2020
Life is hard. Love is simple. It's the tag line of the movie and it is the only expectation that you should have when buying the ticket. The extraordinary characters created by writer/director Ray McKinnon and his magnificent cast, show us that sometimes the simple life isn't always as safe as it sounds. Chrystal, played by McKinnon's refreshingly talented wife, Lisa Blount, gives us a roller-coaster ride of emotions and anxiety while she does her best to deal with the "pain" of her life and hold on to the man she loves. Having grown up in the Ozark mountains myself I may be a little biased in saying that the scenery was absolutely beautiful. Ray did a great job of showcasing the rolling hills and majestic views that can only be found in that little known part of the world. This film is loaded with everything that makes a movie worth watching. From solid performances by headline actors like Billy Bob Thorton, to a deep bench of fresh new talent waiting to explode in the business, such as Colin Fickes(Hog) and Max Kasch(Shorty). Ray McKinnon also steps out from behind the camera to give a downright entertaining show as "Snake", a white trash wanna be drug lord of the holler.
For me it's a movie that was more than worth the ticket price. It was a trip home to see some old friends. I'm sure those same friends will raise hell about being shown as simpletons and hillbillies, but sometimes we are. But along with that we are the most real of any people I know and the Ginney Mule team shows that with this movie called "Chrystal."

Come Away Niter (2020)
Genre: Adventure, Drama, Fantasy
Release: November 12, 2020
Niter Come Away
Ah! The 1950's and science fiction films. This was the decade that brought us giant ants and other mutant insects, evil aliens coming to take over our bodies, good aliens out to save mankind from destroying itself, Godzilla and all his Japanese monster buddies destroying every inch of Japan, and the films of Richard Cunha, Missile to the Moon, She Demons, Frankenstein's Daughter, and Giant From the Unknown. Cunha has a certain directorial style, that for me, is the mixing of bad film-making with an almost uncanny way of making bad seem good...or at least interesting. Giant From the Unknown is indeed a bad film. It tells the story of a professor and his daughter driving through the southwest looking for the remains of a giant Spanish conquistador known for his cruelty. While driving they just happen to come to a town where Ed Kemmer(an affable leading man if nothing else)just happened to find a lizard alive in rock that was thousands of years old. Okay, I know you know where this is going. And it does go there. The giant is alive in century old rock and begins to eat his way through everyone's livestock and likes to kill for no apparent reason. Kemmer falls in love with the daughter Sally Fraser, whilst proud pops(the great Morris Ankrum)realizes his dream come true of finding evidence that this giant once lived. Well, the story is without a doubt ridiculous. But this is a fun film. Jack Pierce did the make-up for the giant conquistador. It is not real impressive, but Buddy Baer certainly is a giant of a screen presence. The acting in general is adequate, and the direction is entertaining. The film does have some fine scenes, particularly the ending in the snowy mountains and the dam. If you just want to be entertained in that magical 50's B picture way....take a look at Giant From the Unknown.

Freaky Niter (2020)
Genre: Comedy, Horror, Thriller
Release: November 13, 2020
I have to admit, it is a little confusing at points and a little dumb at other points. Nevertheless, I though that it was a good little TV movie. I liked the suspense and the misdirection, and I liked how it was ambiguous at the end. It was well worth a Sunday evening.
My only major criticism is that I don't think Mary-Louise Parker was that good. She coasted through the bulk of the movie, only to come out at the end as a brilliant mastermind. I didn't really buy it. The other actors were quite capable, and they managed to pull their parts together quite well. It is likely the supporting cast is not as good as Parker, which would make the acting quality unequal, but she really stuck out in this and not in a good way.

The New Mutants Niter (2020)
Genre: Action, Horror, Sci-Fi
Release: August 28, 2020
Niter The New Mutants
Very good writing and very good camera work, in both angles and continuity. This show is still viewable by today's standards. Some may appreciate how 'car phones' were the leading edge of technology in the late 1960s and early 1970s when not even fax machines existed. Others may reminisce on the occasional fad fashion statement even while the main characters wore what was considered conservative. Few can ignore how thoughtful the episodes were. Sometimes complex, the well scripted plots often kept the armchair detective puzzled until the very end. It is as though every single object, mannerism, and facial expression had a purpose towards telling the story.
Hard action, yes. Violent, maybe. Graphic blood and guts, no. Realistically, cars didn't flip over other cars and burst into flames at every car chase. Just like everyone experiences similar issues within each respective profession, some plots had similarities but they were so well thought out that they were very different in the end. Consequently, soft and caring moments were interspersed with happiness, sadness, and action. It was a fairly real show with few, if any, stupid scenes; a show where people didn't do superhuman stunts. It contains mystery and some suspense. The theme song is classic. It's a good series that can still be enjoyed today, on reruns, of course.

Although I vaguely remember this from the 90s,I saw this show properly for the first time the other day (bought Series 1 DVD). Essentially it depicts the lives of 2 divorcees trying to start a new romance together, despite constant distractions from his ex-wife + her teenage children.
Although the humour is feeble, obsolete even,the show is nonetheless quite substantial simply for 2 reasons:-
1) The actors - 2point4 Children's Belinda Lang plays the ex-wife, and the (back then) really cute Julia Sawalha,of Absolutely Fabulous and Press Gang fame,plays the teenage daughter.
2) The archetypal early 90s British setting; the show is a nostalgic trip into the modest mums, baggy/black-clad teens and horrendous suburban wallpapers of the day!
Second rate by all means; while the BBC had all the essential comedy classics, perhaps ITV intended to spare a weekly slot for such mediocrity. That said, I will give it 6/10 simply for the established actors and the kitsch-yet-classy early 90s cultural setting.

Niter Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey
I actually found it a very sad film. All the humiliations Jamaicans have to go through just in order to feed their families. Enormously stupid and arrogant American guests (I wouldn't want to have my holidays among such folks!). Beer drinking competition and crab races as "entertainment". And Jamaicans really believe that they are "free"??? And that the Cubans are not? I have had holidays in Cuba. All the staff who work with tourists, have dignity and self-respect because they won't starve if they don't please the morons with money. And the entertainment includes salsa lessons and Spanish courses. I would not want to be on holidays in Jamaica after seeing this film (poor waiter who had to sleep with that old fat cow!)and I do sincerely feel sorry for the Jamaican people who are very talented and friendly and certainly deserve better than serving a bunch of idiots.

I nearly cried.
To see actual, real actors like Vincent Price, Robert Morley, Roddy McDowell, Richard Benjamin, Cloris Leachman, Cleavon Little, James Coco and Tony Randall trudge about in a movie where the big highlight is seeing them nearly kill one another to scavenge all manner of inexplicable items for an inheritance, well.... It's all too sad to comment on.
Actually, the best thing about the movie is the scenes in which Richard Mulligan mugs his way into getting a wedding dress, a car bumper, etc. He is the whole movie himself.
Too bad they had to involve everyone else.
One star. For Richard Mulligan.
Maybe they should edit out everyone else and just rename this "Empty Nest: The Movie". It might just break even.

Niter True to the Game 2
I'll be totally honest: I gave up on this movie after a quarter of an hour. It was badly made and acted but I switched off seconds after one of the main characters made a comment so unbelievably stupid that I couldn't care about them.
The comment was this( spoilers) The characters are poor farmers in Italy and they discover a supernatural force in their well.While the male lead and some girl watch the well water explodes, turns black and gives off noxious fumes. So what does the father do? he lowers a bucket in, drinks from it and pronounces it " pure and fresh".He then tells his family to continue to drink it, cook with it and bathe in it.
I know you have to suspend disbelief with characters and plots in low budget movies but there is a limit. Why should I be expected to care about people who behave so stupidly..in ways that no real person ever would.
I stopped watching then and I'd advise you not to bother

Unhinged Niter (2020)
Release: August 21, 2020
Pece Dingo's MIDNIGHT CABARET reveals it's hand early when the fragrant, shaggable damsel at the focus of it's "story" (Lara Harrington, looking fresh), a struggling actress named Tanya, finds herself thrust into a nightmare vision where she is pursued through a Gothic, fashionable Los Angeles by a straight edge razor wielding vampire whom she had witnessed feeding off another hunk in a downright sexual manner. He is stark naked, with plenty of rump shots as he scuttles up various staircases in pursuit of her nightie-clad, rain dampened body. Either the film is gay, or it's for the ladies, which turns out to be the case by the second reel when we get to see her apartment. It isn't a living space for a struggling actress, it's a stylistic flourish dream pad that Mies Van Der Rohe would have had trouble paying the rent on.
The premise for the film is actually interesting: A super high-class nightclub/cabaret type of hotspot staging neo-Grand Guginol type performances which blur the line between reality and dreams. Are the performances for real or imaginary? The answer seems to be yes, they are both. Everyone has perfect clothes, perfect hair, plenty of cigarettes, and behave as though they were in a Duran Duran music video. Which makes sense given the presence of lead actor Michael Des Barres, who fronted a Duran Duran spin off band during the 1980s. He glowers under his highly stylized hairdo, rasping in a mid Atlantic half-British accent while intoning the Prince of Darkness, ironically clad in a perfect white suit. His stage MC evokes a pre-heroin Boy George, and everyone in the cast is apparently on the verge sleeping together in the most casual of ways.
Slowly the dream imagery of the stage plays begins to spill over into Tanya's fashionable life as she finds herself plagued by aspiring rapists or hunky suitors who seem more interested in how they are being lit than actually getting away with anything. Even the film's would-be heroic cop, trying to get to the bottom of things after some untimely deaths, swaggers through the frame in a $1500 knee length designer jacket while wafting cigarette smoke through the diffused lighting. Is he a real person or a functionary of her dream? The film seems more interested in making us wonder if he'd be a good kisser more than how he pays for his wardrobe. The fact that he never bothers to read the lass her rights even when interrogating her over the coincidental murders of everyone close to her suggest that he's either inept or simply hot for a date.
The film gets one thing right which is putting the viewer into a state of confusion over whether what we are watching is supposed to be part of the nightclub act or reality, no easy feat since Ms. Harrington spends an awful lot of time running blindly down empty city blocks while always managing to look freshly showered. The story becomes secondary to the imagery, which has more in common with a Nagel print than it does a standard horror movie, with the complete absence of exploitational female nudity eventually giving the film's agenda away, which is to be respectable at all costs. Even when the characters are having sex the film manages to avoid being sleazy or voyeuristic. Here at last is a horror movie for couples, where all the guys are sensitive minded beefcake and all of the women are resourceful, quick witted, and have fantastic apartments. Nobody seems to have a job or need money, people speak in hushed stage whispers or listen in turn attentively, and hot chicks don't mind having 2nd hand smoke blown in their faces because the smokers all look so great.
In other words I'm not the person to be reviewing this film. It's poised, dramatic sensibilities are wasted on me and will find their most appreciating audiences in fashion minded females in their mid 30s who still go nightclubbing & are nostalgic for the 1990s. Guys watching this will feel under-dressed and somewhat at a loss for what to say, other than perhaps asking "So when do we get to see her tits?" You never do, but afterward you might just find yourself in the mood for a cup of International House French Vanilla coffee. And a cigarette.

Jungleland Niter (2020)
Release: November 6, 2020
By 1943, the German Field Marshall Rommel had pushed the British forces under Auchinleck back to within 60 miles of Alexandria, Egypt. Auchinleck was relieved by Generals Alexander and Montgomery, who dug in, and then successfully counter-attacked at El Alamein, saving Egypt from German and Italian conquest.
Not that most of the Italians were a great threat. Their leadership was poor, for one thing. And they were held in contempt by their Afrika Korps counterparts. One of the Italian generals was Ettore Bastico, to whom Rommel referred as "Bombastico." Their equipment was outdated and poor. Many weren't overly fond of Mussolini and his aggressive foreign policy and his eager affiliation with Hitler's Germany. For these and other reasons, their team spirit was on the low side and the British and Commonwealth troops swept them up by the thousands.
I mention this because the actual movements of the various forces are described well enough in another review, so there's not much point in describing them again.
It's a war time propaganda movie and very well done for what it is. Propaganda itself is interesting because it's possible to mislead without actively lying. For example, we don't see or hear anything in this film that is untrue in any strict sense of the word. But what's interesting is what ISN'T said or seen.
One of the principal reasons Rommel lost the battle of El Alamein is that he was at the very end of his supply line. He simply ran out of stuff. He was outnumbered in tanks, supplies, and combat-ready troops. He was out of fuel. He abandoned some operational tanks by draining their fuel in order to keep other tanks moving.
And the reason for this was that the thread of his supply line ran from Italy to Tripoli, hundreds of miles by sea, and then still more hundreds of miles over the single coastal road. The coastal road was vulnerable to air attack. The convoys were vulnerable to attack both by air and submarine and shipping was regularly sunk, so that Rommel had almost nothing to replace his losses.
And one of the chief reasons for THIS is that the British had broken the Italian naval code and knew roughly when and where the convoys would be at any given time. Of course, this couldn't even be hinted at in a 1943 documentary. Secrecy was so important that an air attack on a ship could not be called off, even though at the last moment it was discovered that the ship carried Allied POWs.
And Rommel's retreat from El Alamein was not a rout, it was orderly. As he was driven back to his own ports, Rommel was able to replace some of his supplies, and he went on to turn his retreat from the east into an attack on American and British troops in the West.
But you can't have this sort of information in a documentary made during the conflict itself. The élan, which the Italian troops lacked, had to be kept up at home and in the field.
The print I saw was in pretty bad shape. The narrative was relevant and informative, although sometimes five minutes would pass during which we see many guns and tanks and troops dashing around but the narrator tells us nothing about what we're watching. Some of the footage obviously doesn't match the narrative closely but if you're not a purist you won't mind. The graphics are very helpful.
Now that the shouting is all over, there is a more balanced and orderly presentation of these incidents available on the "Battlefield" series of DVDs. The boxed set of DVDs contains El Alamein, North Africa, and the Mediterranean.

Genre: Drama, Horror, Mystery
Release: November 20, 2020
Niter Saint Maud
it's hard to say what's worse, the casting of Jenny Lopez in the lead or the terrible script. jenny? seriously? This show desperately wants to be The Shield, but instead of developing characters and a story over a season, Jenny and Ray break world records for most crimes committed by TV police officers in a single episode.
Lets recap the first episode: 1. 3 minutes in Jenny fakes a crime scene to make a bad shoot look good (her partner thinks an xbox controller looks like a gun and so shoots someone dead. sure why not. sounds plausible)
2. After 9 minutes in Jenny and her cop buddies share cash they have shaken down/stolen from other bad guys (just in case you didn't realise this is a show about corrupt cops at the 3 minute mark)
3. After 20 minutes in Ray makes deal with drug dealer, then beats him up. Vic Mackey policing chapter 1.
4. After 22 minutes Jenny tries to shakedown a bookie for cash. Oops, too bad he's under cover FBI. busted. worst corrupt cop ever. Couldn't even last 23 minutes.
5. After 30 minutes in Ray and Jenny run down a suspect with their car. He gets up and starts running....but 48 year old Jenny manages to run faster in heels and tackles him for the arrest. Girl Power!
6. After 33 minutes Jenny deliberately crashes her car - to cover up a lie she told earlier about the car being in a crash. Unfortunately she survives.
7. After 34 minutes, Ray drinks and drives on the job. Because being a corrupt cop isn't enough of a cliché. he has to be an alcoholic too.
8. After 36 minutes Ray hands over one bad guy to other bad guys to kill him. Vic Mackey policing chapter 2.
This show has no originality and zero potential. Stay away.

Niter The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run
Due to the fact this is a true story, these are real people, and this truly did happen, I believe it is a film every Christian needs to see. The acting was utterly heartfelt on the part of everyone, and is a storyline I will never be able to forget. David keeps on with the same message "Jesus loves you", even when he's threatened by thugs and hoodlums, it doesn't change his love for them and his desire to help them. There's no better love then what David Wilkerson shows for these young people, and he brings God's love right to their doorstep when no one else was willing to even try to breach the barrier. I know it may not be everyone's cup of tea, so if you don't like Christians movies, with a Christian message, and Christian actors, don't see it, but for those of you who desire to learn more about faith, the love of God, and where to turn to when things look blackest, then The Cross and the Switchblade is the movie for you.

Synchronic Niter (2020)
Genre: Drama, Horror, Sci-Fi
Release: October 23, 2020
A satire on everyone who's too big for their boots (or secretly wants 2 B), because they will not achieve the aims they pursuit and are ultimately doomed to be separated from their privileges when they wake up to reality. The story may also come across as remote parody on The Last Supper, but from the bourgeois point of view (who never really get their supper), in contrast with 'Viridiana' (1961, Buñuel), where the poor and disabled DO get their Last Supper. But I don't know much about the bible, so I'm probably wrong about that. It proves though that you don't have to be pious to appreciate Buñuel's films; in fact, you'd better NOT be.
The 'adventure' of the protagonists is a proverbial sinking ship, because they seem to know what they want, but never reach their goal, which is quite simple and basic (to eat), because they're so caught up in supposed etiquette. They have all kinds of knowledge about manners and gestures, but they cannot sit down and eat. That is actually a fairly clear message: 'look before you leap' or 'behold the priorities of life'.
What's more indiscrete: drinking a martini the wrong way, or selling cocaine abusing your position as an ambassador and fooling around in the garden while you're having friends over for diner? And are you ultimately discrete simply because nobody discovers your subversive or criminal actions? These guys just can't control their carnal and financial lust, while complaining: 'No system can give the masses the proper social graces. But you know me, I'm not a reactionary.' Blah.
Cinematographer Edmond Richard (Le Procès (1963, Welles), Fantôme de la liberté, Cet obscur objet du désir) exhibits his excellent collaboration with Buñuel's visions. Buñuel tried before to make it easier for audiences to understand the imagery by incorporating it in a dream sequence (e.g. Tristana, 1970), but he returns here (as in Belle de Jour, 1967) to the early days (1930) where the dream sequences were just put forward as if they were reality. You'll never know what is a dream and what is real. As always, there is no music here to guide you, apart from the ringing church bells. Just open up your ears and clean out your eyes and you'll not be disappointed.
One last remark: the cover of the video is definitely one of the most applicable and distinctive covers (Ferracci) ever made, as is the cover of 'Fantôme de la liberté' (an odd-faced statue of liberty with a limp torch) by Jean-Paul Commandeur and the cover of 'Cet obscur objet du désir'. Buñuel didn't worry about the surrealism in his own life. He seemed to live in harmony with all his contradictions and hypocrisy.
