El Machino

Wowwy zowwy!! I love this post.


So many reasons this movie should be on DVD:

- Written & directed by Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, American Gigolo, Mishima, etc).

- The downtrodden/upbeat theme song ("Light of Day") was written, just for this movie, by Bruce Springsteen. And then 14 years later, following 9/11, Springsteen got re-interested in the song, and perfomed it live a bunch of times.

- Great cameo by Del Close, who plays a gravely serious oncologist.

- Micro-cameo by Trent Reznor, who plays 1/3 of a new-wave band called "The Problems."

- It's a good movie -- far better than its 4.8 or 4.9 IMDB rating.

Seems to me like a good candidate for Criterion.
