Hey everyone... the blog lives!!! even if sometimes it lurks in small comas.
Well, if things haven´t been to heavy on news, one has to focus on the past. A nice dvd recomendation, and probably one of the coolest (definitly my favorite) dracula films of all time: Dracula has Risen From the Grave. Hammer Studios has usually, deliver and the great Christopher Lee never looked better as the good old Count.
There is not really much that I can say about this film, except that it just... works. The creepy sets, the blood, the cinematography, Lee´s brilliant interpretation of Count Dracula... all of this contributes to the great atmosphere of this (and many other Hammer classics). So, for the few of you who haven´t seen it, do yourselves a favour.
Favorite part: the final sequence. That amazing final sequence.
So, what else is new? Oh yeah, the documentary Inside Deep Throat that just hit the theaters in Portugal. Yes, it shows fellatio. And no, it is not the best documentary I ever seen. But still, I thought it gave a pretty nice image of an era, and it should be pretty interesting for anyone interested in some cultural aspects of the 70´s. I also think the film made a nice point on the effect of sexuality in the 70´s society and how some of those issue still stands up (no pun intended) to this day. The editing of the old footage is also well achieved.
That´s all for now and I hope I´m not another two weeks without updating.
