Updated Ranking

Joe (1970)
★ ★
Wild attack on American values crumbling under hippie liberals AND fascist conservatives. Thereís one great sequence where a rich couple of GOP have dinner with a poor couple who live the Qanon values of the extreme right. Goes off the rails towards the end before the finale completely leaves planet Earth.


Save the Tiger (1973)
★ ★
Kind of like watching a speech by Gaspar Noe about how terrible things have become. Such a blunt object thematically its story is barely comprehensible. Acting is strong, but itís both depressingly dramatic and not dramatized to any level of satisfaction.


Cry Uncle (1971)
aka. Super Dick
Ĺ
A porn movie that thinks itís a comedy. Itís not that the jokes donít land, they never appear.
