Could Have Been So Much Better!
- Raymond Banacki
The Roger Vadim was negligible - Jane Fonda riding around on a horse - endlessly - does not constitute a film. The Louis Malle was the best - interesting, novel storyline and two charismatic stars - Alain Delon and Brigitte Bardot.The Frederico Fellini was sub-par Fellini - but Terence Stamp's performance made it all worthwhile.
maybe the police can handle this.
this story had a presence so strange.. like an invisible sun. the feeling lingered til the whole day was done. the last of the story subjects felt ominous.. uncomfortable..it made me think ..don't stand so close to me. that last part was like a master telling a slave.. with every breath you take you belong to me. the main character was looking for a face.. but he could not find a trace.. he was wanting a deep embrace.. baby ..baby please.. somebody call spike lee ..the ending was a downer..well..it was horror. the second subject.. was a demolition.. man. the best part was the first subject. jane fonda..every little thing she did was magic. every little thing she does can turn an audience on.. sometimes. peter fonda was a spirit in a material world. it was like he had a message in a bottle and sent it to jane. they had synergy ..I can not spell synchronisty ..sorry. i swear..jane fonda could wrap a ghost around her finger. watching that first story was like walking on the moon. maybe the story was a bit much..but with jane fonda involved..some people do not want to put on the red light. some times movies are not a pretty thing.. but believe this..i will be in the pouring rain.. cause it is my destiny to be the king of pain for stories. of course.. critics will look for a shadow of doubt and tim allen be choking on a crust of bread.
great to see this movie again!
many years ago, I saw this trilogy movie starring the french actor alain delon & I could not remember the name of the movie! today, I saw it appear on TCM & voila! thanks for showing this.
" Let Them Eat Fellini."
- A.Stanley Ochocki
Thank you, TCM for showing this 'Prize' with in a cake of sub-, to mediocre Film. As such, from the 1st viewing, upon Its initial release, through College Film Art Festivals through the viewers of today. We 'ALL' agreed. The 'ONLY' segment worth the viewing is Fellini's. I can remember being at two different College Film Festivals where the audience, several minutes into the film stomped and whistled, shouting for the projectionist to skip to the Fellini segment. And spent the next 2 hrs. just watching and re-watching this 'minor' masterpiece. Fellini nailed the sentiment that Poe, expressed in this story. That the Devil, will show, or 'Act-Out', the part that best fits your expectations of him. Be it a Man with Horns or a pitch fork, or a 'little girl'; a monstrous Demon, or purity of innocence. from both angles; for the 'little girl' who haunts & taunts, Toby, to the 'bedeviled' voluptuous and Haute Couture persona of 60's Beauty: beguiling him with whispered tones of 'Fulfillment through and with Him.' Fellini captures; no, pre-dates such films as "Bedeviled", or "The Devil Wears Prada", re-capturing the empty vanity of 'ALL' Oscaresque type awards and shows,either they be in America or Europe, with the Actors and Producers, et al all willingly crossing the bridge over the Abyss and entering into the Hell of their own choice. Bravissimo!

I work in a geriatric medical practice. we put TCM on everyday,and our patient population loves it. But today it was brought to our attention the movie Spirit of the dead had some nudity and was inappropriate for the waiting room. this is just an FYI.

This Movie would have been a whole lot more enjoyable if they just would have left Jane Fonda on the cutting room floor.Maybe it's just because I don't really like period pieces or men in those kind of wigs,or is it "whigs?" The other two segments that make up this movie are pretty good though.Click on the "articles" to the left of this screen and get some backstory for this movie,its pretty interesting. Benny.
Why NO Review!!?

Never heard of this pic, Pourquoi! I saw 2 video clips and I'm hooked!: can't wait to see it tonight! I don't understand why not ONE moviephile, "Pro or "Amateur", (I'm not even sure what I meant by that!?) hasn't said 1 syllable about this picture. I mean, NO, rather, LOOK, (alot of Politicians like to say this word) this pic has a young Jane Fonda (and bro: Peter) and another "philly", Brigitte Bardot, a lil upstart who happens to be French(like the pic), also a fine and charismatic actor--Terence Stamp, and the always cool and creepy Vincent Price as Narrator!!!!!(1 for each *) Now, if all that wasn't enough, Did I mention this Movie was made in 1969,a very interesting year for Cinema (as well as Life!) and is Rated "R" ( I believe all films should be rated "R", simply because, Life, if rated, would also receive an "R", unless, of course, one IS the Devil(or 1 of His/Her disciples), and this pic is a French Flick!, Oui!, FRENCH, with a great title: "Spirits of the Dead"!!!, Well, my spirits are anything but dead!! lol(I just had to put one in, sorry), and last, but not least, we got critically acclaimed Louis Malle directing these sumptuous stars(with artsy and sophisticated special effects)based on Edgar Allan Poe's Ultimate Orgy!!!(at least that what the movie poster said). Now, call me maybe, or better, your Best Gal or Guy, Heat up the chocolate fondu(for the strawberries), cool down the Champagne, turn down the lights; light up the candles, slip into something sexy(or comfy, for you "PG" folks) Turn on TCM and let's see what( or whose) "Spirits" we can conjure up tonight!!!! NOW, if this mini-dissertation/review on a movie I've never seen, Doesn't "Get you Going", especially the second part, then perhaps your already DEAD!! Thus, you REALLY Need to watch this French Flick with a Friendly "Feline"(or "Canine")!! Hey, what am I talking about, I'm single, Call Me!! "Vive la France" and Jane/Brigitte too. P.S. On ne fait pas d'omelette sans casser des oeufs!!
