Eclipse 1962: All Night Long

It’s one of those funny cigarettes, see?

Anyway, next on the schedule was Victim, but it turns out that I watched it a couple months ago.

It was OK.

So I’m onto the final Basil Dearden movie instead.

They’re getting hooked on the reefer!

Patrick McGoohan drums up a storm very convicingly, I must say.

Oh! I thought this movie was really odd, but I didn’t make the connection:

This movie, based on William Shakespeare’s Othello, is neatly positioned as a vehicle to showcase some of the best jazz musicians of the period, including Dave Brubeck and Charles Mingus.

Herp derp, I eat paste.

Then again, I don’t really remember the plot of Othello.

There’s bits of this movie that’s fantastic. But overall I’m just not feeling it.

I’m probably totally wrong, and this movie is pure genius. And I mean that.

But this is what I’m feeling right now:

All Night Long. Basil Dearden. 1962.
