RARA-AVIS: Re: Get Carter

Fans of the original 1971 film version of GET CARTER might be interested in PULP, which debuted on DVD last week. It reunited Michael Caine, writer/director Mike Hodges, and producer Michael Klinger one year after CARTER. Caine plays an author of paperback thrillers who gets into trouble when he agrees to ghostwrite the memoirs of a fading Hollywood star with Mafia connections. It's an odd movie, kind of a shaggy-dog-story that sends up noir storytelling. I can understand why it didn't connect with audiences; it makes a strange follow-up to CARTER. But there are enough enjoyable moments, and a terrific performance by Mickey Rooney as the actor.Vince Keenanwww.vincekeenan.com

Pop culture, high and low, past and present.

One day at a time.
