The Wrong Arm of the Law
The crooks in London know how it works. No one carries guns and no one resists the police. Then a new gang appears that go one better. They dress as police and steal from the crooks.

The characters are Lynchian quirky (Brad Pitt even has a conical pompadour reminiscent of Jack Nance's hairdo in Eraserhead), but not in a theatrical way that David Lynch is so masterful at presenting. These characters are more one-note-weird, which, at times, is rather dull and unimaginative on the part of Tom DiCillo's writing. Nevertheless, this film has a camp delight to it, most likely because of the simmering surf soundtrack and a flawed though self-assured performance by Brad Pitt. I also enjoyed seeing Nick Cave so creepily displayed on film. It was appropriate.

(es) wrote: So is the film worth seeing? You betcha-provided you can find a copy. My attitude is that by shelving the film, you neglect a fine, fine performance by James Baskett and also ignore an important part of our heritage. After all, films on Turner Classic Movies or Shirley Temple DVDs are widely available and they often contain terribly dated and more offensive stereotypes. Plus, in the case of the Temple films, if you shelve them because one might have an offensive performance by Steppin Fetchit, you'll also lose the WONDERFUL dancing of one of the great dancers, Bill 'Bojangles' Robinson! Disney....re-release this film!

And you cant really expect a lot out of Disney after coming back from the war effort, so this is still worth a good watch for what it is. Another heavily cultured highly musical animated piece.
(ag) wrote: Sadly, this one doesn't hold up for me: it's too cold, distant - and the downer ending betrays the original novel by Desmond Cory. Nevertheless, a tremendous score by John Barry - and a dramatic set-piece mid-film: Caine doing a "deadfall" during a burglary while "Romance for Guitar & Orchestra" (14m) plays in real time.

(gb) wrote: Richard Franklin's love Hitchcock results in a surprisingly classy, suspenseful and funny road thriller. Definitely one of those yester-year thrillers that still very much works today and is the right sort of suspense flick that we need more of now.
