I watched Crimes and Misdemeanors on a Saturday night and Stardust Memories the following morning. I didn't like Crimes and Misdemeanors. I found it pretty boring, and I didn't like Martin Landau...I don't know. I can't pin it on anything in particular, it just didn't resonate with me. I gave it three stars on netflix, which now I'm thinking was too generous. I'd probably give it a two. In my four star ranking system, I give it one and a half stars. I felt really stupid as I watched Stardust Memories because I feel like everyone always talks about how great Crimes and Misdemeanors is, then I like Stardust Memories A LOT, and I started worrying that I was a retard who likes all the shitty movies. I don't know if Stardust Memories is supposed to be a shitty movie. But I liked it so much better than C & M. Charlotte Rampling is my new favorite. Three and a half stars.
This movie is really fucked up. Some real messed up shit goes down. Young Lawrence Tierney is very good looking. Two and half stars.
