ACE IN THE HOLE (1951)
An ultra-cynical satire of the news media and America in general, this is a movie that very much feels like it could have come out in 2021.
THE DUNWICH HORROR (1970)
After the passing this week of the great Dean Stockwell, we revisit his very weird performance in a Roger Corman HP Lovecraft adaptation because… I felt like it.

A surprisingly tense thriller about two guys who pick up a hitch-hiker only to quickly discover he’s actually a serial killer, that is considered the only “classic” film noir directed by a woman.
