    The Driller Killer

    ★★★★

    I'm a sucker for films with micro-budgets and no editor and just one big deranged ego on a nobody director who is also the film's star (off the top of my head: Boardinghouse; Killa Season; Last House on Dead End Street). There are more of these than you would think. The difference here is that the director really did have talent and went on to have an amazing (still active) career and it's neat to see what he can make out of nothing here. Also a sucker for films that are unintentional pseudo-documentaries for their time and place.

    ★★★

    Sports gambling is this action film's MacGuffin and I know that Pete Rose was a hot topic when this movie was made, but it looks pretty quaint today when ESPN prominently posts the betting lines next to the schedule of every sporting event. This movie stood out to many for adding a little vulnerability to the mainstream hyper-masculine 80's action flick, but it doesn't really go anywhere in my opinion. In fact it goes backward, with a wish fulfillment ending…

    Can’t wait to see the restoration of this. It’s 80s HK action but all of the hallmarks of Wong Kar Wai are present. A great match!

    This movie had a lot of cool stuff going for it. Eerie sets, evocative mood, insane tracking shots, fun banter. Unfortunately overlong scenes of exposition dump put me to sleep.
