The Stack. COMPLIANCE, LIGHTNING BUG, WAKE IN FRIGHT, THE POSSESSION, and JACK AND DIANE

Welcome back to The Stack. This week's releases were exceptionally fun to sift thru and I'm especially glad to be able to chat about some obscure stuff you might not have heard of before. The disturbing Compliance, the surprisingly effective Lightning Bug from way back in 2004, the almost lost forever Wake In Fright, the outright weird occult thriller The Possesion and even weirder but far more interesting horror romance Jack and Diane. Themes this week ranged all over the place from spirituality, to coming of age, to the role of authority and first love.

    Thanks Mr Canfield, Compliance (2012) is a film that I want to see, but still haven´t seen, just like the rest of these films.
    I would love to see a Stack just focusing on one actor......someone like Donald Pleasence, would like to see your favorites.

    Thanks much for the encouragement MJY. I';m currently putting together similar videologs for The Criterion Collection and the MOD releases that come my way but I'm also working on involving others in the shows as well as doing some special shows just like you described. I'm a sucker for character actors. Maybe it's because I'm such a character myself. Robert Lansing gets mentioned in the next episode as well as Nicol Williamson.

    Unusual choices Mr Canfield........can´t recall any films where their performances stood out to me, but will be looking forward to it.
    Videologs for Criterion will be much appreciated....at least by me.
    But do something about the audio....still think the quality is not as good as it should be.....
