04.11.07Weird Wednesday Haven't heard of Jose Antonio Nieves Conde? Well he directed 26 films in his 30-year career! shame on you!!! yeah, I've never heard of him either. But thanks to Lars and a good first reel I know about him now!

Marta is an atmospheric little thriller that takes Psycho and Vertigo and a couple Poe stories and mashes them all together. Marisa Mell (Eva from Danger: Diabolik) looks hot as ever and takes her top off like 34 times. no kidding, she does it in just about every other scene. At one point she's even like "it's hot in here" and takes her shirt off but the next shot is her stoking a fire. It makes no sense but don't think for a second that I'm complaining. She's so hot in such a peculiar European way that I had absolutely no problem watching her in her underwear or topless or wearing sheer nightgowns or whatever. If they possibly could've fit in more I would say they should've... but it looks like someone already passed that particular note along because she takes her shirt off A LOT and I like it.

The rest of the movie... hmm. Well, based on my previous viewing of its first reel, I had all sorts of ideas about what kind of movie it could be and they were all pretty much wrong. It was good though, and by the end I was conscioussly trying to figure out how it would end. Plus it has a few great lines (mostly revolving around the main guy's mother or his mental state ("I'm normal!!!")("I can remember my father's screams, day and night") ("I want you. I don't care who you are or what you're doing")).

I think this would be a movie where, if I knew what it was about going into it, I might not have been that excited about it, but since I was there and watched it, I ended up liking it more than I thought I would. does that make sense? well it does to me.
