The Gangster, the Cop, and the Devil (2019)

Epic South Korean action film starring the always entertaining Ma Dong-seok, most famous for his role in Train to Busan. Here he is the gangster who teams up with a police officer to catch a serial killer. South Korean serial killer films are always worth a viewing.

A Royal Affair (2012)

Danish historical drama starring the GOAT Mads Mikkelson.  For fans of royal intrigue it also stars a young Alicia Vikander before she shot to stardom in EX MACHINA.  If you enjoy Mads, this is worth checking out.

Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941)

Boxer Joe Pendleton is not supposed to die but does because of some stupid angel that is a little too quick at snatching Joe’s soul up before his death. So he makes a deal with God or whoever to inhabit Mr. Farnsworth, a wealthy jerk who was just murdered by his wife, until Joe can get a better body (his has been cremated). But of course Joe falls in love in Mr. Farnsworth’s body. With a woman. Not the new body. It’s from 1941.

Streaming on Apple TV and available to rent

 

Heaven Can Wait (1978)

LA Rams Quarterback Joe Pendleton (Warren Beatty) is not supposed to die but does because of some stupid angel that is a little too quick at snatching Joe’s soul up before his death. So he makes a deal with God or whoever (in this version it’s Buck Henry) to inhabit Mr. Farnsworth, a wealthy jerk who was just murdered by his wife (Dyan Cannon) until Joe can get a better body (his has been cremated). But of course Joe falls in love with Julie Christie in Mr. Farnsworth’s body. Charles Grodin as the slimy accomplice to the Farnsworth murder steals the show.  Written by Beatty and the queen of film, Elaine May…directed by Beatty and Buck. So it’s got all this The Graduate clout…but it’s a Warren Beatty vanity project. But it’s good. Man, how amazing  must it have been to be Warren Beatty in 1978??
