Synopsis: Lensed by acclaimed Polish cinematographer Zbigniew Rybczynski (Tango) and boasting a music score by Klaus Schulze (Manhunter), Schizophrenia tells the story of a psychopath recently released from prison.


Bruh, this movie is sick.

Hadrian Belove intro'd the movie (as he does every time he's there, pretty sure) and he quoted Rybczynski from his attendance on Friday -- the entire fucking movie was shot on a steadicam mount with the camera (and film) upside-down reflecting off a mirror. Rybczynski also edited this and well, it seems the credits are misleading and Rybczynski directed this movie. This movie absolutely 100% for sure inspired Enter the Void, way more than any other movie I've seen.

Now mentioning I thought the character portrayal was marvelous. I should say there simply isn't anything negative to say about this movie, and as Belove also said (also tonight he admitted his preference isn't for horror movies, they make him squeamish, and he appreciates all great movies but he isn't inherently a fan of horror movies) (hell yeah) the movie's a "stunner" for sure.

Rybczynski sample (he won an Oscar for this, "Tango"):

Every perspective is an act of creation.

André De Toth's Pitfall (1948) on blu-ray from Kino



Dick Powell plays a returning World War II veteran who at first blush would seem to have everything going his way, a good marriage with a beautiful and loving wife in Jane Wyatt and a healthy, energetic young son in Jimmy Hunt, along with a position as a Los Angeles insurance executive and a lovely home. Powell exhibits the restlessness that many returning servicemen experienced following a global military conflict. His penchant for excitement leads him into an extra-marital affair with sexy blonde model Lizabeth Scott. What propels "Pitfall" into the ranks of a chilling film noir drama is the appearance of a ruthless sociopath willing to destroy all in his path to secure his objective, which in this case is possessing Liz Scott, body and soul. Corrupt private detective Raymond Burr overlooks the unyielding rebuff of Scott, who detests him. Burr convinces himself that eventually her feelings will change. The element thrusting Powell into the combustible picture is Burr's selfish realization that Scott holds true feeling for the decent but fallible insurance executive. He believes that to have Scott all to himself he needs to destroy both Powell and her boyfriend, who is about to be released from jail, played by Byron Barr. If he can successfully play off one man against the other they will be removed from the picture, leaving him to take up romantically with Scott.





Some reading about the movie:

It Might Get Quiet: "Ramrod" (de Toth, 1947) and "Pitfall" (de Toth, 1948)

Film Noir of the Week - Pitfall (1948)

Classic Movie Rambligs - Pitfall (1948)

"The relative lack of overt noir visuals works to the film’s advantage. This is a nightmare played out in broad daylight and bright sunshine."

A quartet of international crooks -- Peterson, O'Hara, Ross and Ravello -- is stranded in Italy while their steamer is being repaired. With them are a British couple, the Dannreuthers. The four are headed for Africa, presumably to sell vacuum cleaners but actually to buy land supposedly loaded with uranium. They are joined by others who apparently have similar designs.
