Screenings: Lust for Life (1956)

July 28th, 2013 · No Comments

Exhausted, so working my way through the @nytimes “1,000 Best Films Ever” list. So far today, two real duds: Lust for Life and Silk Stockings.

Lust is so comically overwrought, I expected Kirk Douglas’ Van Gogh to morph into one of Lon Chaney Jr’s monsters. Just bad.

The theme music for Lust for Life sounds as if it were lifted from a biblical epic such as Ben-Hur, or a sword & sandals pic like Spartacus.
