Movies From the Hat VI #48 – Jay’s Pick – Archangel (1990)


This is my 3485th Review

Thanks to Jay of Life Vs. Film for this recommendation.

Here are his thoughts on the film.

“I’ve heard of ghosts. Good ghosts who wonder the battlefields at night, guiding soldiers out of danger. You can see their omens everywhere. Omens, warnings of stray bullets and lurking enemies. If I was such a ghost, I would stay so close to you, you could feel my breath on your cheek. ” – Danchuk

Number of Times Seen – 1 (5 Nov 2017)

Brief Synopsis – A man on the Russia Front during WWI with amnesia tries to figure out how to get his life together.

My Take on it – Apparently, Jay loves to torture me because he gave me this film to watch eventhough he was generous and gave it a 4/10.

I wont be as generous…

This film was one of the worst films I’ve ever seen in my life.

The plot was extremely boring and crazy to watch and I didn’t care at all what would happen to anyone.

For some reason this film was made to look like a film from the silent era and I can’t understand for the life of me why one would try to do that.

This  film is apparently on the list of 1001 Movies to Watch Before You Die and I’m am totally baffled as to why because it was so torturous trying to get through it.

This is starting to scare me as to what Jay will have me watch the next time he gets a chance to suggest something.

Bottom Line – One of the craziest and most boring films that I’ve ever seen. I’m not sure why this was made to look like a film from the silent era and nothing really makes much sense. This was torture to watch and despite it somehow being on the list of 1001 Movies to Watch Before You Die it was horrendous.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The interiors of the hotel where Philbin and Veronkha stay were in fact the director’s apartment, redressed and with an elaborate new paint job. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy
