Saw #DeathWish. Charles Bronson is an interesting cat, McQueen/Delon-like, & stands up very well in the comparison.

#DeathWish. Vincent Gardenia looks like Doug McKenzie.

#DeathWish. This is one Brown-Shirt of a movie. Replace complexity w’ melodrama, make the underclass into undifferentiated savages …

… & let the killing begin. Not a bit of irony or apology, it seems, until that amazing last shot. Then, suddenly, it’s Taxi Driver!
