Coma (1978)

"A young woman doctor discovers something sinister going on in her hospital.
Relatively healthy patients are having 'complications' during simple operations and ending up in comas.
The patients are then shipped off to an institute that looks after them.
The young doctor suspects there is more to this than meets the eye." (IMDb)

This was a good thriller directed by Michael Crichton and based on a novel written by Robin Cook.
The movie stars Geneviève Bujold, Michael Douglas, Richard Widmark, Rip Torn and Elizabeth Ashley.
You can also see Tom Selleck in a small role as one of the patients.

Nice cast, good mystery atmosphere and eerie Boston Memorial Hospital/Jefferson Institute hallways.
While the ending felt a bit too easy, i recommend this enjoyable late 70s thriller!

Coma is a good 70's thriller, very solid, well acted. Genevieve Bujold is always a pleasure to watch, and Michael Crichton moves it all along pretty well. I have not seen the recent U.S. A&E TV network remake, but I can't imagine that it would be an improvement.

Coma is one of my favourites, Genevieve Bujold much underrated actress. Probably the best of Crichtons films, even Jurassic Park.

Just watched Adventures Of A Taxi Driver, mid seventies sex comedy, not bad at all for such a low budget film. 6 1/2 / 10.

I honestly thought you'd seen 'em all ! [Big Grin] [Razz]

Anyway.. personally i hate hospitals, doctors, and all things related (especially syringes / needles),
so a mystery-thriller set in a hospital where people never wake up from relatively simple surgery,
is pure horror to me.. really gives me the creeps !

Mickey Hargitay! "I am the Crimson Executioner. Bwwwwaaaahhhhhaaa"

Those speeches that he gives are some of the funniest things that I've ever heard in any movie. I love when the heroine at one point responds to his ranting with "You're an egotist!"

Dog Day Afternoon is fantastic. Pacino!

...Tick ...Tick ...Tick (1970)

Tensions run high when a black man is elected as the new sheriff in a small southern town.

Excellent racial drama starring Jim Brown and George Kennedy who get to show off their acting skills.
Both are clearly at the top of their game here, providing great performances !

...Tick ...Tick ...Tick was released on dvd-r last year as part of the Warner Archives collection.

I know the guy is creepy in the movie but I love Richard Widmark's voice.

The Hazing (1977) aka The Curious Case Of The Campus Corpse

After a fraternity initiation goes horribly wrong and leaves one of its aspiring members dead,
the others decide it's best for the reputation of the fraternity to cover things up.
All is not what it seems though, and there's a nice twist in the final act !

Odd mixture of black comedy, drama and thriller elements vaguely resembles the much later Shallow Grave (1994).
Surprisingly well-acted, and definitely worth a look !

La bête aka The Beast (1975)

Haha, what a fun film directed by Walerian Borowczyk
and starring perhaps the most famous Finnish actress Sirpa Lane.
Lots of skin and weird behavior.

That is one of the all-time great sleaze classics (..and sleazy it is) ! [Big Grin]

I have the limited 3 disc edition from Cult Epics, which has two versions of the movie,
a feature-length making of, and a 52 page booklet.

Sirpa Lane's appearance is etched in the minds of sleaze fanatics, not only because of La Bete,
but also because of her.. uhm..'revealing' roles in Papaya Love Goddess Of The Cannibals and The Beast In Space.

Essential viewing for the exploitation fan, without a doubt !

The Driver (1978)

Ryan O'Neal, Bruce Dern.

Pretty decent movie. Walter Hill knows how to make a movie that's for sure. The plot was quite predictable but all in all not bad.

Great car chase sequences (Would have taken a long time to film and edit those together). Could just imagine the nightmare it would have been in the editing room.
