Btw, there was a film on race from the early 60s including no less an actor than William Shatner. I'll imbd it in a minute.
Kia is a succubus, luring to their final perdition men who already have sinful habits and libertine inclinations. She tires of this, it's too easy, and these souls are going to Hell anyway. She wants to match wits and charm with someone who is good. So, against the advice of her sister Amael, Kia seeks out Marc, a man who has already faced death with courage. After a night together, Kia finds that not only is Marc's goodness still intact, but she has been ravaged by love. In anger, she and Amael conjure an incubus to deal with Marc. The incubus starts with Marc's sister, Arndis. Who will win the struggle for souls?
I probably am being too light on him. I loathed him, would not have voted for him in thousand years, and was infuriated by Florida and the Supreme Court debacle. Perhaps I overcompensated for my instinctive revulsion by giving him too much the benefit of the doubt. I wasn't alone. Patriotic fervor, fear of not being seen as patriotic, plus a genuine confusion can lead to unhappy circumstances. Not to excuse myself, but happens often--usually in emotionally charged situations that lead to poorly thought reactions. Brazenness can be very effective. And it takes a while to wake up. Although I never supported Bushco, I have to admit being tacitly submissive. And like some we know who wake up the next morning full of regret, even shame. I feel violated.
@191: how on earth did I miss White Dog?
My favorite movie on race was Drum. It wrote the book on exploitation films.
Wow--given that imdb lists the budget for I Hate Your Guts/The Intruder as $90,000, that's tough to lose money on. It even gets an impressive 7.8 rating. I'll have to take a look. Btw, speaking of Shatner, the movie's star, I was feeling nostalgic and for the first time in 20 years watched a half dozen Star Trek episodes. Granted I was cherry picking the ones I remembered fondly, but Shatner was nowhere near the ham he's so often portrayed as. In fact, he often nicely underplays his scenes. He was a terrific choice for the role of Kirk.
Needless to say, with well over 2000 feature titles in about 42 months,...
"Film professor" has to be one of the better jobs out there. "Director", too. From time to time I jot down random notes on scenes and dialogue I'd like to turn into a film. It's encouraging that when I get around to it a respectable camera and editing software can be had for under a grand. Before digital it must have been just brutal to shoot and edit on a shoestring.
