Physical Demeanor Exudes Gentleness And Restraint So Often Canceled Out

Sunset Blvd. (1950) Directed by Billy Wilder

Heat (1972) Directed by Paul Morrissey

Paul Morrissey is a genius... plan and simple. 'Heat' is a modern day version of 'Sunset'.... but in truth... 'Hea't is a far better film. I'm not sure if it's because of its color or modern drama. I think the 1950's lack of realism is the reason. It's the hollywood system... it's the hollywood system. i'm sure Morrissey would agree. I need to figure out what the 2nd film, 'Trash' (1970) is related to. 'Flesh' (1968) is obviously a retaliation to the creation of that bullshit film Midnight Cowboy (1969) Directed by John Schlesinger. Schlesinger is another one of these hacks I continue to comment on.
