Cinema Smorgasbord – Wild in the Streets – Caliber 9 (1972)

WILD IN THE STREETS returns with the first entry in Fernando Di Leo’s Milieu Trilogy: the hard hitting 1972 classic CALIBER 9 (aka MILANO CALIBRO 9)! Featuring Gastone Moschin as Ugo Piazza, a small time gangster fresh out of jail being hunted down by his former associates for stealing $300,000 that he swears he doesn’t have, it’s tough as nails and features a memorable jazz-flute tinged score by Luis Enríquez Bacalov and the Italian progressive rock group Osanna. It also features the great Mario Adorf in a gloriously unhinged performance as Rocco. CHECK IT OUT!

Cinema Smorgasbord – Praising Kane – Racing With The Moon (1984)

PRAISING KANE returns with 1984’s RACING WITH THE MOON, a pretty darn good World War II-era coming of age film starring Sean Penn & Nicolas Cage as close friends who experience a whole lot of life’s trials and tribulations in the days before they are shipped off to the war. Directed by Richard Benjamin, it has a bunch of young familiar faces (including Crispin Glover and Michael Madsen), and clearly has a lot of empathy for its mixed up central characters. Oh, and of course Carol Kane is in there as well in a small – but memorable – role. All that and the latest Carol Kane news so CHECK IT OUT.
