06.16.06Borrowed I'd never seen this Bogdanovich movie... it's pretty good! No surprise though to hear him say his two least favorite genres are horror and sci-fi and this is the only thing even close to horror that he made. For such a big fan of Hitchcock it's a shame he's not into thrillers because I'd love to see more movies on this caliber.

The sets show the Corman budget, but it's an inventive way to use footage from another film (is that... hey that's jack nicholson!) and it becomes even more inventive when you hear him explain the scenario which brought the film about.

This would make such a perfect drive-in movie... oh man. So even though he doesn't seem to do much more than introduce his famous friends' DVD and write about how cool it was to know famous people nowadays, I have to remember that he made some awesome movies.

I also got particular enjoyment from hearing how much Sam Fuller influenced this film and thought it cool that Bogdanovich gives the credit where credit is due.
