  • Eaten Alive (aka Death Trap) | Blueprint: Review
    Judd s motel becomes rather busy the following night when a married couple with a young daughter Angie arrive hastily followed by a father and daughter looking for their missing daughter sister who just happens to be the inexperienced whore who was murdered the night before When the little girl finds Judd s pet monkey dead in a cage on his veranda over looking the swamp the crazy drunken hotelier seems to snap and tries to kill her forcing the little girl into hiding under the hotel All the while her parents argue upstairs seemingly unaware of what s happening to their daughter until Judd decides that they re going to be next on his pet crocodile s menu Eaten Alive or Death Trap as it s sometimes known as is a film that I ve been meaning to watch for ages ever since I first saw it on the shelves of my local video hire store back in the early Eighties prior to it disappearing during the video nasty debacle in 1984 5 Having experienced Hooper s previous film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre I d been eager as a see it if you dare teen to watch his follow up to that seminal horror hit Unfortunately copies were suddenly scarce and since I didn t have my own video player back then I had to rely on friends to provide my video highs and some of them weren t really horror fans Fast forward to 2016 and I jumped at the chance to review this fear flick which has been on my must watch list for so long So was it worth the wait Well I guess it kind of was but not for all the reasons that my teenage self would have craved for back in the day For instance Eaten Alive is not a particularly gory or violent film at least not by today s standards and it s not as salacious as a hormonal teen might wish it to be either In fact apart from one or two murders Eaten Alive is fairly tame when compared with the likes of the Hostel or The Human Centipede films that are more prominent nowadays The movie was shot completely on sound stages and kind of feels like a studio bound film not that that s a problem as it kind of enhances its all round weirdness Even the lighting is quite strange with most of the film being lit by rather sickly red lighting The hotel manager Judd is extremely well played by character actor Neville Brand who was apparently quite a strange man anyway and unnerved a fair few of his fellow actors and also the crew Brand was an ex vet himself and here he is playing someone who has lost in marbles primarily because of his experiences during a war a situation director Hooper obviously thought that the actor could relate to Apparently when his character had to slap the other cast members around a

  • Criterion UK - It Happened One Night & Tootsie | Blueprint: Review
    reality the battle is very one sided with Colbert taking most of the blows and Gable getting by with a few dents to his ego As much as a romantic partnership there s a slightly queasy sense that Gable represents a more attractive replacement father figure for Colbert a sense reinforced when he playfully spanks her for speaking out of line It s the one aspect of the picture that has dated badly Whereas many films of the early sound era have a staged quality It Happened One Night takes place out in the world Exterior scenes bustle with life grounding the story in a particular time and place When Colbert goes for a shower at an Autocamp for instance Capra elects to record her journey to the shower block in a long tracking shot almost like a documentary Not that the film has any real interest in grim realities a surprising amount of the action takes place at night not one but several lending what must have been a monotonous journey a sense of glamour and mystery Tootsie Director Sydney Pollack Screenplay Larry Gelbart Murray Schisgal Don McGuire story Larry Gelbart story Barry Levinson uncredited Robert Garland uncredited Elaine May uncredited Starring Dustin Hoffman Jessica Lange Teri Garr Dabney Coleman Charles Durning Bill Murray Geena Davis Country USA Running Time 116 min Year 1982 BBFC Certificate 15 Released in 1982 Tootsie was also a product of its time The studio sponsored experimentation of the 1970s was over but many of the stars and filmmakers from that period had endured and were finding their way in an industry reinvested in traditional genres Dustin Hoffman was one such figure and he was not finding the journey straightforward Since 1976 he had appeared in only three films and two of them Agatha and Straight Time were notoriously difficult productions that failed commercially Luckily the third was Kramer vs Kramer both a massive hit and the inspiration for the idea that became Tootsie While making Kramer vs Kramer Hoffman began to muse on the relationship between genders and the role that gender played in personality Over three years he worked with various big name talents including Hal Ashby one 70s figure who failed the transition into the 80s to fashion a narrative Originally the extras inform us it was to be set in the world of professional tennis Eventually though Hoffman elected for a situation closer to his own experience He plays Michael Dorsey a talented New York actor who has made himself all but unemployable with a difficult reputation Reduced to teaching a chance comment while coaching a female student leads Michael to hatch a plan that will test his and not coincidentally Hoffman s ability to disguise himself as a woman to get a lucrative part on a daytime television soap Also a skilled amateur make up artist Michael is immediately convincing as aging single actress Dorothy Michaels and gets the job The stage is then set for for a beautifully paced series of misunderstandings and complications as Dorothy becomes a hit placing considerable pressure on Michael s personal and professional life As a woman Michael quickly abandons his usual confrontational attitude as he has to deal with the dominant male personalities on set At the same time he begins to develop romantic feelings for his co star played by Jessica Lange Tootsie is a farce with a lot on its mind a romantic comedy that wants its audience to think It could not succeed as well as it does without Hoffman s varied subtle performance He makes Michael and Dorothy believably different people while also scoring with moments of broad physical comedy Equally though he is supported by an exceptional creative team When Columbia Pictures refused to hire Ashby the film ended up with Sydney Pollack by the director s own admission a safer more mainstream choice It is made abundantly clear in the disc s special features that Hoffman and Pollack did not always see eye to eye but Pollack put together a professional engaging package that keeps the laughs coming without overwhelming the drama The script is credited to Larry Gelbart and Murray Schisgal but numerous others including Elaine May and Barry Levinson contributed The supporting cast is similarly stuffed with A list talent In addition to Lange Teri Garr is Michael s neurotic student Dabney Coleman and George Gaynes are Dorothy s on set adversaries Pollack himself plays Michael s agent Charles Durning is Lange s widower father and Bill Murray is Michael s disbelieving flatmate Geena Davis also shows up in her film debut All bring extra class to an already classy package although that is not to say the film is without flaws Like the similarly well meaning Kramer vs Kramer Tootsie is torn between wanting to explore a social issue and needing to function as a showcase for its star In both films the result is that the female perspective is under represented muddying their messages in the process In several sequences Tootsie thoughtfully questions gender roles as Dorothy and her female co workers are repeatedly objectified patronised and demeaned by their male counterparts Unused to such treatment Michael as Dorothy is in a position to fight against inequality that the film argues real women accept as inevitable or don t even perceive However the focus is so fixed on Hoffman that none of his female co stars are really allowed their own stories limiting the scope of any social criticism Both Lange and Garr get some good moments Lange knocking back glasses of wine to cope with her philandering boyfriend Coleman and Garr expressing mounting exasperation at the acting life but they all take place in Michael Dorothy s presence Ultimately Tootsie is about Michael s personal impact and growth At times it comes uncomfortably close to suggesting that a man can be a better woman than women are themselves The Disks It is difficult to imagine either film looking or sounding better
