At a time when Hollywood has been churning out cheap thrillers for the last ten years, and a new glut of such films is appearing on the big screen every few months, it is quite amazing to see what makes a classic film. I have just watched a masterful film from a much overlooked genre, one that should have received much more attention, and the opening sequence was like something out of a David Lynch film, and that is precisely what it is. I know of only one other film, in the last ten years, which was made by a woman and had the same opening sequence. That film is "The Good Son" which was made by the same filmmaker. The following year I watched the award winning "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" and found it to be a film that was one of the best of its genre, and it had a similar opening sequence to this film, but this film was not awarded the award for best picture. This is a truly great film that deserves much more attention than it is getting, and it is a shame that it was not nominated for the Academy Award for best picture. The screenplay by Dan Futterman, who also wrote the screenplay for "The Good Son" is simply superb. There are scenes in the film that are absolutely mind-blowing, like when the protagonist returns to his house, which he had just vacated, and the lights go out and the blinds go up, and it is a completely surreal scene. The opening sequence is simply unforgettable, and this is a film that I recommend to anyone, and it is a film that has no equal. I would have never expected to be able to experience such a film, and it is a must see for anyone who is a film student, and anyone who is interested in film.

For those who had to endure the most unpleasantly excruciating editing (a kind of machine-gunning of the film, followed by an absolutely hilarious "interview") of any of the Pasternak films, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test (1998) might be the most satisfying experience. Set in the 1960s, and running just under an hour, this is not only a fascinating look at the making of Kool-Aid, but also one of the best made-for-TV movies I've ever seen. (And that was from the long-running late '70s Pasternak show, not the one on YouTube, which was still airing at the time.) The story is told through the five Kool-Aid directors, but what truly makes it work is the interviews with all of them, and their frequent, and often hilarious, outbursts of color-coded, graphic obscenities. I've seen this on PBS several times, and it has a number of unusual aspects that are fun to watch. For example, the bandleader has a habit of jumping into his interview and stammering away, while his interviewer tells him to shut up. The dialog is also remarkably snappy, sometimes with people so dramatically engaged with what they're saying that they'll end up jumping around in the air a couple of times, which is also a great gag. And there are a number of interviews with Kool-Aid personalities that are entertaining. Most notable is the one with the black-and-white actress who plays Kay. She's terrific. She's also in a lot of good films, including the well-known 1977 musical The King and I. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to know more about the making of Kool-Aid.
