Vielen Dank!

RIP Leonard Kastle...

Leonard Kastle, the director of the brilliant, almost implacably bleak 1970 film The Honeymoon Killers, has died...



The Criterion Collection's synopsis:

"Martha Beck (Shirley Stoler) is sullen, overweight and heartbreakingly alone. Desperate for affection, she joins Aunt Carrie’s Friendship Club and strikes up a correspondence with Ray Fernandez (Tony Lo Bianco), a suave, charismatic smooth talker who could be the man of her dreams—or a wicked con artist bound for trouble. Based on a true story and filmed in documentary-style black and white, The Honeymoon Killers is a stark portrayal of the desperate lengths to which a lonely heart will go to find true love, from brutally immoral killings to a passion that transcends all bounds."

Rest well, sir...
