Death, Lies & Deadbodies

Always thought I had seen Steven Soderbergh's Sex, Lies, and Videotape (1989) but apparently I have not. Got it from my library to correct this. Unfortunately I don't think this film carries that same weight it did over 20 years ago when it was declared the impetus for the independent film movement. Still a good film but hardly great. 6.5/10

Was thrilled that TCM aired William Castle's ultra-creepy Shanks (1974). Kinda like a auto accident you can't help but keep looking. Marcel Marceau is brilliant. Dolls & mannequins already freak me out; this film takes it to the next level. 7.25/10
