128 – Touch of Evil (1958)

If only they'd blow this fucker up at the start of the film and not the other guy.

Orson Welles stars in the hot steamy pile of shit.My god this is one terrible film,from the guy who brought us Citizen Kane this is a travesty.The story is a weird one and takes about 25 minutes before you even get into it.Let me give you the gist of what it’s about.A car crossing the border from Mexico to America blows up just across the border(U.S.A) and the cops land in to see what’s the story.Meanwhile a Mexican cop and his new wife are entering the states on their honeymoon.He offers to help.The american cop is as bent as a dogs hind leg and only the Mexican can see this.While he’s helping with the car bomb case and investigating the cop his wife gets into all sorts of trouble with some ‘dope heads’ who drug her,blow “reefer” smoke on her and all other kinds of shit.Then the cops arrest her for drug charges because they can “practically smell the dope on her”.Fucking retarded.And the bad guy is some kind of Gomez Addams looking dude.I wouldn’t place this film on the top 1000.

179 – Amores Perros (2000)

lots of crank calls in this film

Amores Perros is a Mexican film about three or four different stories that all inter connect at some stage of the film.It would be akin to Pulp Fiction in the way the stories are told.All of them deal with relationships and how people seem to have it all then things go tits up and reality sets in.Not the best film by a long shot,a few scenes seem to drag on and i certainly wouldn’t have placed this film anywhere on this list.But it does have some quality dog acting in it.
