The High Wall (1947)

A solid film noir about a veteran who returns home and has amnesia. Amazing cinematography and amusing cameos flesh out this murder mystery. Worth checking out for noir fans  B+

Zabriskie Point

An interesting look at misguided youth spurred to revolution and free love at the end of the 60s in LA. We follow 2 strangers united by chance in the desert after a murder , a stolen plane and some frolicking in the desert. Soundtrack by Pink Floyd and the Grateful Dead. Visually stunning and filled with scenes that date the movie to it's time- this is well worth checking out. B+
