This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Crime Zone (1989)
I've watched many a post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie in my day, but none contained lines of dialogue this classic: "I'm sure you're still horny, subgrade. Show me your dick." I'm getting ahead of myself here, but I've been laughing about that one all day. Enjoy it for yourself here.
Anyway, I've been looking forward to this one because the cover is so sweet, but also fearing it because I figured there was no way a movie could live up to a cover that is bursting at the seams with such sweetness. And, yeah, it didn't. But, it wasn't a struggle to knock this thing out, and that's all I can really hope for. That, and lines like "I've seen you at the House of Pleasure raffling your pussy like a side of beef!" Gold. Nonsensical gold.
David Carradine is indeed in this movie, but he's by no means the star. In fact, this is actually more of a Sherilyn Fenn vehicle, and specifically more of a 24-year-old-Sherylin-Fenn-playing-a-space-hooker vehicle, and there's nothing wrong with that. She even does some of her trademark nudity. Bonus!
I didn't invest myself too deeply in the plot of this thing, but it involved a dude named Bone (Jay Buhner reference? Boy, I hope so) and a gal named Helen getting their Bonnie-and-Clyde on after being hired by this mysterious dude (a cigar-chomping Carradine) to do some dirty work for quick cash and a way out of the hellhole they're living in. Of course, shit goes awry real quick, and soon they're on the run from the cops, from former friends they've screwed over, and from the dregs of society who are trying to bring them down because they're on the lam. It's all very dramatic, and the rampant overacting throughout this flick only makes it better.
Ah, 1989. And speaking of 1989 and Sherilyn Fenn, the other movie she made that year was our featured film from just a few short months ago, True Blood. So that's something.
Also something: the trailer for this movie.
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
Lew Tabackin - Tabackin (1977)
I'm considering getting this album cover tattooed across my back, because it's just that awesome. I mean, seriously. Look at that guy.
Mr. Tabackin also plays flute, and he just runs shit for the duration of the recording. I think he might have been a big-deal jazz guy, but I'm clueless about that stuff. All I know is that he was, at one point, a member of Dick Cavett's house band, and he's super-sweet beard.
What a stallion. Here he is going nuts on that horn of his.
