Que la bête meure (1969)

A single father is obsessed with murdering the hit&run driver who killed his only child and poses as a screenwriter to get close to the culprit.

A top-rate crime and revenge drama with a relentless view on bourgeois life and one of cinema's most memorable villains.

Halliwell***: "A complex and engrosiing psycological study that ignores the thriller aspects of the story to concentrate on relationships of love and hatred, with a memorable performance from Yanne as an uncouth villain."

Maltin***1/2: "Outstanding film...This may be the best of many fine Chabrol dramas; Yanne and Cellier are unforgettable, the cinematography (by Jean Rabier) beautiful."

This is the story of how a middle-aged spinster lost her mind, deserted her domestic gods in the city, took a furnished house for the summer out of town, and found herself involved in one of those mysterious crimes that keep our newspapers and detective agencies happy and prosperous.

Mollie Cruickshank

The Little Shop of Horrors (1960)

A clumsy young man nurtures a plant and discovers that it's carnivorous, forcing him to kill to feed it.

Hilarious black comedy; the low-budget shows, but it's lively and immensely entertaining.

Halliwell**: "A Corman quickie, allegedly shot in two days, that is a lively, if occasionally ramshackle, comic delight with a notable cameo from Nicholson as a masocist."

Maltin***1/2: "Classic black comedy...Initially infamous as The Film Shot In Two Days, but now considered one of Corman's best pictures. Nicholson has hilarious bit as masochist who thrives on dental pain..."

Jonathan Lethem contributed to the series, had to get it; of course, I have the Talking Heads album, too.

Scoop (2006)

An American journalism student in London scoops a big story, and begins an affair with an aristocrat as the incident unfurls. 
Slight comedy, unpretentiously directed and talkative; entertaining more through the verbal jokes than the plot.

Maltin***: "Larkish comedy-fantasy-mystery plays like an afterpiece to MATCH POINT, also set in London...Endearingly silly and off the cuff, but you may to be a Woodyphile to truly enjoy it. Allen is in good comic form as a walking showbusiness cliche."
