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....
