Crop And Save
La dame de Monsoreau (1971)
This really good adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' novel is one of the forgotten jewels of french TV. Not only is the political and religious situation of 16th century France very well rendered, but the actors (and particularly the beautiful Karin Petersen, and Denis Manuel as Henri the third, one of France's most intriguing kings) seem really in touch with their characters and make the love story and the political plots around the throne either easy to dive in. If you like the mix of swashbuckling, romance and great historical background (the religion wars), this one is for you, no doubt.
Twin Peaks: Episode #1.1 (1990)
it lives in you...
You can count on the fingers of your hands TV shows that really hook you after only one minute, and for the rest of your spectator's life. Twin Peaks is masterfully written, directed, photographed and played. Every single character is unique and haunt you long after the end credits. But something really upsets me with Twin Peaks, and that's the way people only credit david lynch for this masterpiece, too often neglecting the wonderful work Mark Frost did with the scripts. Sure, Twin Peaks is a visual achievement, but the way Mark Frost handled the stories, allowing david Lynch and every other guest directors to express their talents is wonderful, and it's a shame the talented mr Lynch is often the only one to receive credits for it (and I recommend to you, among many others, the Diane Keaton directed episode, which is one of the most beautiful and best "lynchian" episodes of the second season.). So, let Twin Peaks and his inhabitants capture you, let them live in you, and don't forget to thank mr Lynch & Frost for giving us the chance to be attracted in their not-so-strange world
The Blue Iguana (1988)
funny, and that's what matters
this movie is a great moment of fun if you're willing to accept anything happening on screen as believable (which is though, I must admit it). Stockwell is as great as always and Dylan McDermott really seems to enjoy his character. Plus the too often underrated Pamela Gidley and a bunch of actors who sometimes look undirected but having fun themselves, Blue Iguana will never make it to the "greatest movies of all time" list but is will make you have a good moment, which seems to be his goal.
