Excellent and much appreciated reviews as always, Mychal! Thank you for your thorough and detailed assessment and critical appreciation of these films. I'm way behind on buying my most wanted trios in KL's line of Dark Side of Cinema boxsets, but your reviews are a factor in which ones I'll buy first.
