RV!: The Phantom of the Paradise (1974) Dir: Brian De Palma Date Released: October 31, 1974 Date Seen: June 26, 2011 Rating: 4.5/5
Second go-around and I am very happy to say: no, sir or ma'am, as the case may be, I am not crazy for thinking this movie is a fucking gem. Paul Williams's score is fantastic, De Palma's cynically ironic sense of humor is at its peak and the film's cast members are all terrific. If loving this film is wrong, I will never ever ever be right. And what a wonderful Halloween eve gift (note the original release date)!
