Big Louis Costillo, last of the old-style gang leaders is slain, and his former bodyguard Tony Camonte is taken into custody. Since Costillo's body has never been found, the police have to release him, though they strongly suspect Johnny Lovo paid Tony to remove Big Louis. Tony begins taking over the rackets in town with violent enforcement, and he becomes a threat to Johnny and the other bosses unless they work for Tony. Meanwhile, Tony's sister wants to be more independent, but finds it difficult to escape from her brother's overprotective grasp. The dissatisfaction of the other bosses and the relentless pursuit of the police push Tony towards a major confrontation.

Recently I got that chance, and Machete Maidens Unleashed! is just as much fun as I imagined it to be. Talking to a variety of Corman regulars, including Roger Corman himself, Joe Dante, Pam Grier, Sid Haig and also great interviews with people like John Landis, the documentary is mostly focused on Corman productions produced in the Phillipenes. The documentary is fast and furious, and doesn't stand still for a minute. It has a lot of energy, but it felt too short to me. That's a minor complaint, but it definitely seemed to go by too quickly and left me wanting more. Perhaps that's a good thing, or maybe it's not. It depends on your viewpoint, but if you're interested in movies like The Big Doll House, Women in Cages or The Big Bird Cage, then you're bound to love this documentary. It's gritty, honest and entertaining.

Original plot, good comedy, great acting, and you feel better when you get up than when you sat down :). I do have to say that the end with the son's graduation was a little weird and contrived, but overall a really great movie. I'm gonna buy it!

(ag) wrote: Just recently saw To Be Or Not To Be on TCM the other night and it is still a tremendously great film. I hadn't seen in at least 10 years but everything still works. Ernst Lubitsch directs the 1942 political satire classic To Be or Not to Be, which marked the final screen appearance of comedienne Carole Lombard. In Warsaw at the beginning of WWII, Maria Tura (Lombard) and husband Joseph (Jack Benny) perform anti-Nazi plays with their theater troupe until they are forced to switch to Shakespeare's Hamlet. Lt. Stanislav Sobinski (Robert Stack) falls for Maria and meets up with her during Joseph's famous To Be or Not to Be speech as Hamlet. When Stanislav is eventually dispatched for war, he implicates Maria with Professor Siletsky (Stanley Ridges), who has a secret plan to destroy the Warsaw resistance. The Polish theater troupe is then forced to use their theatrical skills to ensure their survival. Eventually, they turn to impersonating Nazi officers -- and even Hitler himself -- in order to outwit the enemy and keep the resistance safe from spies. Carole Lombard positively glows in what would be her final film role. She just radiates a heavenly presence and has wonderful chemistry with Jack Benny, who gets a lot of the laughs in this classic screwball film.
