Crossbar (1979)

"The story of an Olympic high jumper, played by Brent Carver,
who loses his leg and yet doggedly persists in his pursuit of athletic glory." (IMDb)

A decent Canadian biopic starring Brent Carver, Kim Cattrall, John Ireland and Kate Reid.
The movie is available on dvd in Australia.

See it on Channel 5? I was in the room when they were showing it and the girl in the suite was having a meltdown. I tried to distract her by pointing out how funky the 70's was.

Because of the handsome JayLee's writeup, I watched this today........and it was great! I loved every minute of it. Jay you are right about every star in your description. It was crazy for me to see Vincent Price younger and not the horror man I remember. Gene Tierney was beautiful and alluring for sure, and yes Dana Andrews was "cooler then a polarbear's nutsack!" He calls women "dames" haha I really loved watching this classic and the great Biography extras that were on the DVD. [Smile] Thanks Jay!

I was hired to play young Mickey Rourke in a biopic of his life. It's a curse.

No, seriously, I went out for some pizza and you would not believe what happened...

... and then everyone started rioting! London was on fire! I thought; all this over an empty crisp packet?! This shirt really is cursed! I'd better update my twitter account right now!

Oh... it appears some of my text has been censored by the government. Never mind... who'd have believed me anyway?

Over the Edge is another low-budget classic. I remember watching it on late-night TV in the 80's and being scarred by the end scene. Dillon was great around that time; Over the Edge, Little Darlings, My Bodyguard - a triple whammy!

It was one of those impossible to find VHS's years ago. For what it's worth - the Over the Edge DVD has a commentary on it.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. BBC mini series from 1979 starring Alec Guiness in about his first TV role as John Le Carre's spy George Smiley. 1979 with the creme de la creme of British acting talent. 8/10.

I think that the mini-series "Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy" is excellent. Why they needed to remake it as a film--even with Gary Oldman and company--is just beyond me. Most of the folks who go to movies today--i.e., teenagers--(a) do not want to see an intellectual plot with very little action; and (b) will have no clue about the Cold War and the issues depicted. Whle I appreciate their looking out for us film buffs, I can't figure how this thing ever got the green light. Unless you subscribe to the theory that no one is creative anymore, just remake a not-too-old, perfectly fine thing...

Very true. It is almost impossible to have any meaningful relevance in 2011. God forbid, they remake the Harry Palmer stories. Even the last two that Michael Caine were only passable.
These spy storoes are deliberately slow paced. You can imagine some bright spark getting Jerry Bruckheimer to remake one.

Love Peckinpah, love The Wild Bunch. I take it that you watched the restored cut. [Smile] I've always found it interesting that with Peckinpah and Leone, their films were not really appreciated until years later. Now they are revered. It proves how worthless movie critics are at times.

I count arguably five or six real masterpieces in that filmography. He died relatively young because according to the stories told about him, he was a hard-drinking, hard-smoking, hard-carousing, hard-charging lunatic. One of the really great American directors, for sure...

Then you need to see the really weird "Alucarda" from the same Mexican director, that guy named Moctezuma... I am not really sure what to make of his goofy, surreal films. He's like a low-rent Jodorowsky. Wait...that's no surprise. He produced "El Topo" for Jodorowsky. [Smile]

I've just watched Alucarda [Big Grin] I loved it! A much better made film than Tarr's. Very atmospheric and the demonic noises were creeptacular [Smile]
