The name is Mike and I love watching, pontificating, and especially recommending movies!

My Top Picks —
At least once a week I’ll suggest a few films that‘s been under the radar, a little odd and/or campy but totally awesome. You know, a Sleeper!
Recommendation #1 The Swimmer
From 1968 Directed by Frank Perry and starring the always engaging, Burt Lancaster. This has a surreal, dream-like energy about it but never leans too hard on it, just enough to make it an unsettling look at growing old while your past demons stay young.
Recommendation #2 Bone
1972’s Bone. Directed by the unflappable Larry Cohen (RIP) starring Yaphet Kotto (RIP)
Another surreal look at modern life that deals with white guilt: 70’s style!
Recommendation #3 Caged
From 1950. Directed by John Cromwell. Starring the great Eleanor Parker but is utterly upstaged by the even better Agnes Moorhead. Sorry, Orange is the New Black but you ain’t even in the same county jail as this one!
