Martin Landau RIP

Start the day with Romero :(, continue with Martin Landau, then what ? Landau who was Rollin Hand in the original Mission:Impossible series (1966) won an Oscar 30 years later for his portayal of Bela Lugosi in Ed Wood, Tim Burton's biopic. Terric performance. But a cold and menacing one he did when he was very young in Hitchcock's masterpiece, North by Northwest. Landau died Saturday in Los Angeles. He was 89.Image result

Ron Goossens, Low Budget Stunt Man

Ron Goossens, Low Budget Stunt Man is the most FUN i've seen in a while, an offensive comedy from Netherlands ser in satirical movie world and introducing a far out character which is like Kenny Powers done by Will Ferrell combined with the essential loser character from Kaurismaki films. Directors Steffen & Flip take fun at their own New Kids series and the whole Dutch film industry and society. Cameos from Dick Maas and other directors and actors, a parody of 80's classic pop cheesy hits by the wonderful German 70's singer Dennie Christian (incl. Scarface's Pushing to The Limits) and the soon to be classic

Ik Leef Niet Meer Voor Jou (video here).
