Greg's Recent Reviews
A shy librarian named Edgar kills his best friend over a woman, and is driven mad by the sound of a beating heart coming from under the floorboards. The new sexual frustration plot devised here to draw Edgar Allan Poe's short story out to feature length really isn't very interesting or much in Poe's spirit.
A medieval doctor who's bored with life sells his soul to a Moneylender in exchange for one night with a beautiful young woman. A fairly surreal and occasionally confusing version of Goethe's classic, Aleksandr Sokurov's adaptation is rewarding, but not intended for literary novices.
Greg's Favorite Movies
Kicked off Hollywood's Golden Age in grand style.
Three desperadoes search for a fortune in Union gold while the Civil War rages around them. A nearly perfect Western, and with its who-will-blink-first machismo perhaps the perfect "guy" movie, but also an epic work of cinematic art.
