BLUE STEEL ON NETFLIX INSTANT!

This week's Netflix Instant Pick of the Week is a nail biting thriller near and dear to my heart entitled BLUE STEELBlue Steel is a classic tale of obsession starring the late great Ron Silver as Eugene, a stock broker turned psychopath who develops a nasty gun fetish after witnessing rookie cop Megan, played by Jamie Lee Curtis, blast the hell out of a small time junkie slash grocery store theif played by a young wild eyed Tom Sizemore.

Silver's turn as the charismatic and delightfully sinister Eugene is frightening and brilliant, complete with "voices in my head" freak out sequences that do their best to hold together the loosey goosey plot. Jamie Lee Curtis is captivating as the naive, yet trigger happy rookie cop Megan and masterfully weaves a character who at times appears tuff enough to take out Rambo and at other moments seems so aloof she'd believe that brown cows make chocolate milk. Clancy Brown pops up as the baby faced detective Nick Mann who at one point does the nasty with a vulnerable and sleep deprived Megan meanwhile, unbeknownst to them, Eugene lurks in a nearby closet tattered, torn and ready to attack.

The story plays out in a heavily stylized barrage of dope ass shots skillfully crafted by the lovely and talented Kathryn Bigelow aka The Woman of My Dreams. (Did I mention she was lovely?) The film  takes more than a few artistic liberties with police procedure and relies heavily on Silver's acting ability as he seamlessly shifts from Wall Street hot shot to killer in the closet, however he does in fact pull it off in a manner that surely inspired Christian Bale and other notable talents that have taken a swing at this brand of Jekyll & Hyde fare. All in all BLUE STEEL is highly watchable (pun intended), action packed fun with some sexy shootouts sprinkled on top and that is why I've selected it as the NETFLIX INSTANT PICK OF THE WEEK!

P.S. - If anyone can set me up on a date with Kathryn Bigelow I'll buy you an ice cream cone...wait, that's an altogether different blog.

MULHOLLAND FALLS ON NETFLIX INSTANT!

FILMJAMIE NETFLIX INSTANT PICK OF THE WEEK!!

Oh yes indeed! It's the Holidays and nothing gets FilmJamie in the spirit more than a 90's Neo-Noir Slam Dunk!  Nick Nolte gets nasty as Detective Max Hoover in this GRIMY crime thriller full of booze, broads and billy club ass beatings!

Jennifer Connelly, Michael Madsen and Treat Williams show up on time with solid performances and Chazz Palminteri delivers the comic relief goods. Chris Penn and Melanie Griffith are sidelined for most of the action, but get their shine on when it's time. John Malkovich gets twitchy with it in his quirk filled turn as the atom bomb obsessed General Timms, but what's truly surprising is the SHOW STEALING performance by ANDREW McCARTHY as the weasly sex tape slinging Jimmy Fields!  His best work since WEEKEND AT BERNIES! Daniel Baldwin vs. Nick Nolte with a billy club is fun times too!  Those two really should team up again!

All in all, Mulholland Falls delivers the brand of filth that L.A. Noire shoulda woulda coulda, plus drugs and boobs set against the backdrop of an atomic energy sex tape scandal, with shootouts and chase scenes sprinkled on top...just in time for the Holidays!  I hadn't seen it since I was 17 and it still help up, but it did leave me with a rather puzzling question:  Who would win in a fight: Nolte's Max Hoover or Russell Crowe's Bud White from LA. Confidential?  Hmmm....
