Video Essays from 2022

I didn't create as many video essays as I would've liked, but I alway enjoy putting these together and hope you'll enjoy watching one or two. All of the videos contain spoilers, so be warned. Thanks for watching.


 


Although one of my favorite film noir titles, The Asphalt Jungle, is primarily a heist movie, I wanted to focus on one aspect of the film that's often neglected: the women behind the men.



Thanks to my friend Jeff Duncanson for bringing this terrific film noir to my attention.




With the recent release from Fun City Editions, there's never been a better time to discover (or rediscover) Cutter's Way (1981), one of the great films from the '80s that most people have either forgotten or never knew about. Watch the film before you watch my video.




I was too young to see Doc in 1971, but in this video I tried to imagine what would've happened had I seen it at the age of 9.




Have you ever watched a movie, thinking that is was pleasant enough, only to revisit it years later, discovering that it knocked you to the floor? That's what happened when I revisited Peggy Sue Got Married (1986).



Here's a film noir that tends to be forgotten but is definitely worth a look: The Big Operator (1959).




Although this video essay is from 2021, several people have told me that Quantez (1957) has become one of their favorite Westerns. Hey, always glad to help!


I'm looking forward to doing more video essays in 2023. Got a film you'd like for me to consider? Let me know in the comments below. Thanks for watching.
