Saint Jack - My favorite thing I've seen in forever, I love this film like a dear friend. Ben Gazzara plays a pimp/brothel owner in Singapore during the Vietnam War. The first half - which I prefer - is devoted to soaking in the milieu of creeps and prostitutes; the second half is still very good but bogs down a little bit in drier plot mechanics. Very similar to Killing of a Chinese Bookie, but this is Bogdanovich so a more conventionally entertaining version than the Cassavetes. Bracing to see something that's mired in racial & gender politics, but completely uninterested in contemporary standards of taste or representation.
