Historian: Interview with Brian Garfield

"I think that, except for its ludicrous violence toward the end, the Death Sentence movie does depict its character's decline and the stupidity of vengeful vigilantism." Death Wish creator Brian Garfield talks to PopMatters about remakes, sequels, writing, and the meaning of vengeance.

Honor Among Thieves (Adieu l'ami is)

Charles Bronson's character wears a Chesire grin throughout Honor Among Thieves that makes it seem like he knows everything about everyone; apparently, he's the only one who knows what this film is about, too.

Roy Shaw - Brute Force (2006)

Roy's story is riveting stuff and would've made a great honest documentary or at least an amazing '70s crime picture. Instead, we get a series of "dramatic" recreations all photographed on cheap video processed with a "film look" filter which insures that the image will look even cheaper on video.
