Cul-de-sac (1966)

Yesturday, Friday evening, me and Kornelius went to the movies. Well, not any kind of movie. This cinema shows only classics and cult-films.

We did the dark comedy Cul-de-sac starring Donald Pleasence, Fran├žoise Dorléac, Lionel Stander and more, from 1966. The black and white film is a 35mm recording done by one of movie history’s greatest creators, Polanski.

First of all I was astounded by the great scenery and shooting of it, then the quality of the actors and their interpretations of these colorful characters. I must say I laughed quite a bit. An automatic Sigg3 dot net classic.

"This is a great film. A must see!!! It may be hard to find, but if you do, watch it. A perfect score: 10 out of 10. Its like an early Cohen brothers film…. or should I say, the kind of film that inspired their body of work. If you like Fargo and Blood Simple, than you will love this film. But be warned, its got Polanski humor. Some people may not even know there is humor. His humor isn’t always obvious. So don’t go into this film thinking it’s a drama. Donald Pleasance is great."
