Along with Another Country, this is one of the first films I remember watching on Channel 4. English summertime has never looked so beautiful and nostalgic, though Ian McEwan’s screenplay delivers a bitter climax
To my knowledge, this has sadly never been available on VHS or DVD
Despite being made over thirty years ago and being as American as apple pie in terms of its carnage-filled content, the death-filled documentary ‘The Killing of America’ (1982) aka ‘Violence U.S.A.’—an anti-gun agitprop that chronicles the most infamous murders, assassinations, race riots, and serial killer/mass murderers since the death of JFK leading up to the early 1980s—has yet to be officially released in any format in the United States, which is not surprising, at least at the time of its initial release, as it is undoubtedly one of the most unflattering depictions of the USA ever made as a sort of cinematic rap sheet of American barbarism - Soiled Sinema
I watched this mondo film last night and it’s not for the faint-hearted
This film’s all kinds of fun, offering a body-snatching alien with a taste for loud music, driving Ferraris and guns. What’s not to like?
Filmed inside Lemarchand’s box
