  1. Dear Richard Winters

    My name is Tiphane and I work for a small London-based film production and distribution company, Spirit Level Film.

    We are currently looking to develop online partnerships with key film websites, which may be interested in the films that we distribute.

    We are the worldwide distributors for French Director Claude Lelouch’s iconic short film, C’était un Rendezvous, having restored the film from the original 35mm negative in 2003.
    Prior to this restoration and re-issue of the film on DVD, it was incredibly difficult for anyone to watch the film unless they bought a $100 pirated VHS!

    I was wondering whether perhaps you may be interested in offering your readers an exclusive discount offer off the price of the DVD, or whether you may be interested in running a competition (we have several signed copies of the film on DVD), or even organizing a direct mail out to your readers.

    We can also offer Scopophilia publicity through our social media, our mailing list of 15,000, and through a listing on the ‘Friends’ page our website.

    We also have a number of other films in our backcatalogue, please visit http://www.spiritlevelfilm.com for more information.

    If you would like to discuss any opportunities for us to collaborate, please don’t hesitate to email or call the office on +442075693039

    Many thanks,

    Tiphaine Junjaud

  2. I’d love to see a review of Stingray with Christopher Mitchum! Hard movie to find though. At one time it was on Youtube, but I couldn’t find it last time I looked.

    • That is a great request! I like “Stingray’ because it features the beautiful Sherry Jackson and was filmed in St. Louis. Not many movies done there. I’ll try to have this review posted on Friday September 7th.

  3. Hey Richard–here are some requests I can think of off the top of my head:

    Blade Runner
    Changeling
    A Little Romance
    Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia
    Logan’s Run
    Hud
    High Plains Drifter
    The Shooting
    The Hospital
    Heaven Can Wait
    Picnic at Hanging Rock

    I might add more when they come to me!

  4. Dear Richard,
    This isn’t a request for a review (unless you want to), but I thought your vast knowledge of films might help me find a movie I’ve been looking for for decades. I have no idea of the title or actors involved. I *think* it was from the ’70’s, or late ’60’s. Probably European, but not sure. It involved a rich widower who’s kidnapped daughter returns later and pretends to be his wife, or the reincarnation of this wife; but she’s younger as he remembers his wife. The original kidnappers put her up to this, for money. It was romantic and had a great soundtrack as I recall, but I could be way wrong. At the end I remember the kidnappers saying (because the rich man involves the police instead) to the daughter, “See? He doesn’t love you! He wouldn’t pay the ransom then, and he won’t pay it now!” I don’t actually remember how it ends. If you know what title I’m referring to or find it, *please* let me know. Thank you!

    • I’m sorry to disappoint you Soda, but at this time I can’t think of any film fitting that description. Any more information that you could offer, or think of would help. Where did you see this movie? Was it in the theater, or on TV? Definitely sounds like a European type of film probably French

  5. Hi Richard! How about a request for a Spike Lee film? Pick any one, lol. Enjoy your blog. Best, Tommy.

  6. THE BIG GUNDOWN (1966), aka La resa deli conti. It stars Lee Van Cleef and it has an amazing story. :O)

  7. Here are some more requests for you:

    The Jerk
    After Hours
    Doppleganger/Journey to the Far Side of the Sun
    The Time Machine (1960)
    Invasion of the Body Snatchers (take your pick)
    Days of Heaven
    Westworld

    I was also going to suggest “Burnt Offerings” as a cheesy Karen Black movie for Halloween time, but you already beat me to it. 🙂

    • Since this is a 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s movie review blog, which version of ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ do you think I am most likely to pick? Also, I saw ‘The Time Machine’ several years back and I got to warn you I was very underwhelmed by it.

      I first saw ‘After Hours’ in 1987 and thought it was a cool flick. Saw it again in the 90’s and wasn’t so impressed with it. We’ll see if the third time is the charm.

  8. Also, there isn’t a single movie in your review archive that has received a rating of 10/10. I’m just sayin’. 🙂

    • You are Wrong! I gave ‘Easy Rider’ 10 out of 10 and in November I will post a review for ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’, which I will also give 10 out of 10, so there! HA!

  9. Hey Richard,

    Great blog! I’m from moviepilot.com and we are searching for the best movie bloggers in the world to feature on our website. You’re reviews are great and would be so good to have you on board. We have 3 million visitors to our website each month and 12 million on our facebook pages. If you are interested then drop me a line and we can chat about it.

  10. “Electraglide in Blue” ? It’s another of those existential road movies kickstarted by “Easy Rider” (“Two Lane Blacktop” and Electraglide would make a great double-bill. Lovely cinematography and a real ‘mood’ piece.

    • That is a great suggestion. It has been many years since I’ve seen that film and it deserves another look. It is moody for sure. I’ll try to have that review posted in January.

  11. The Outfit. Robert Duvall and Karen Black and Joe Don Baker and heck yeah.

  13. Hello Richard, I hope you might be able to help me identify a film. Likely a longshot, but it if anyone knows what this movie is, it would be you. Here is what I can tell you: I remember being about 6 years old (which would be in 1971), and seeing the trailer on TV for a movie that I have never been able to identify. I saw the trailer several times. It depicted a spaceship/starship manned by a crew of what would at that time be considered “hippies,” though they were mostly or all dressed in black leather (at least I assume it was leather); all looking something like Alice Cooper. There was one shot shown where one long-haired hippie was kneeling before and kissing the leather boot of another enthroned long-haired hippie. I believe there were “crew members” of the starship playing guitars, so it might have been a musical. I have asked other places and people have suggested the film ‘Silent Running,’ but it was definitely not that film; also it is not the Star Trek ep ‘Way To Eden’. It is also not ‘Toomorrow,’ the one with Olivia Newton John. Any idea(s) what this film might have been? Thanks.

    • The first movie that comes to mind is John Boorman’s surreal sci-fi fantasy ‘Zardoz’ although that came out a couple years after 1971, but if I were you I might check it out anyways because it might possibly be the one as I remember the cast wearing a lot of wild looking leather outfits. There is also ‘Zachariah’ that was released in 1971. It is the surreal tale of hippies in the west. It is a rock’n’roll western with many surreal elements and imagery and the cast wears many wild outfits. There is also the ‘Lost in Space’ episode ‘Collision of the Planets’ dealing with space hippies in a space ship trying to destroy the planet that the Robinsons are on.
