(mx) wrote: Bad Milo has an extremely crazy premise, but it is pulled off great and provides plenty of laughs and even some touching moments. There is not much horror to be found in this film except for a couple gruesome death scenes but when the killing is done by a little monster that came out of some guys body, its not scary at all. In the first half of the movie are quiet a few laughs and as it goes on the laughs are traded in for kills and an emotional bond between the main character and Milo. Like I said before, this movie is way over the top insane but somehow they manage to create likable characters and a fun story that ends in a touching way. If you want something different, this will be right up your alley.

'Cuz their lives are still going on but you don't have access anymore. Also it was funny cuz the director gave some comments after we watched. Everything is so Czech and Cold War related so it's hard to get the messages the director tried to give as they are all in Czech and they get lost in translation. We liked the movie though:)

Now, franky looking around on YouTube for something free to watch, a lot of this stuff shows up, probably because they are almost abandoned, or at least neglected by their corporate copyright owners who probably bought them in bulk in a package deal with films that continue to have some resale value.I also have a younger friend that I watch some of this stuff with. I turn it on with a clear disclaimer, "Well, I thought this was good 40 years ago, but that doesn't mean that it is." Sometimes I fear embarrassment that I am associating myself with an unworthy product. And this is important since I am little other than the products I identify with. That is modern life for some of us. Fortunately sometimes these products remain good and my shaky identity is for another moment secure.David and Lisa is actually better than I remember it being. It is an excellent little move. The set up is a young man, played by Keir Dullea, is being admitted to a new boarding school for young people with psychiatric problems. He is very smart, but stunted in that he can't be physically touched. If he is he recoils in angry fear, has a panic attack and says "A touch can KILL!" A touch can Kill!" The head shrink in this clearly progressive institution, Howard Da Silva in his first movie role after a decade of horrible Red Scare blacklisting, tries to get through to the young man. But David is smarter than everyone, on to the shrink game from long experience, and not cooperating. Then he meets Lisa, played by Janet Margolin, another young student clearly more troubled than he is with her split personality.This is a story of the healing power of human empathy.This is the heroic side of shrink cinema. It shows a way to help people. This is the opposite of the psychiatric horror stories that predominate cinema history, the Shock Corridors, Snake Pits, Caged, Titicut Follies, etc. Those are all exposs of poorly funded public institutions. They also provide a setting for lurid melodrama, always an easy cinema seat filler.David and Lisa is set in a place where enough money is spent on care for the ones privileged enough to afford it. David has wealthy parents. It's a different world. It's a shame that such places were not more universally available to those in need.But we have other priorities when it comes to money and many people remain simply written off, even just dumped on the street now, the fend for themselves as best they can.The survival of the fittest.
