Armand Assante's 120/80: Stressed To Kill (first trailer)

My fringe film career marches on.

Here is the latest trailer and art.

Film stars Bill Oberst Jr. and Armand Assante.

Starry Eyes

The best edition of Dennis Widmyer's STARRY EYES is the 3-disk German version from Turbine. It includes a BluRay, a DVD, and a CD of the score by Jonathan Snipes.

As a big fan of electronic music, I'm encouraged by a raft of recent electronic scores for horror flicks such as MANIAC, THE GUEST, and IT FOLLOWS.

I liked STARRY EYES immediately, and enjoyed its set-up, and the surprisingly brutal route it took.

The score is a beautiful work, and articulates the film's themes of lost dreams, desperation, loss of innocence, and the death of naivety.

The transformative nature of the climax is deftly communicated via the score.

This German edition is the only one to get.
