A strange movie for both Ann and I to choose to watch again. Maybe it’s the appeal of the unique combination of punk girl, hit man, and My Fair Lady-style transformation. Ann remarked that this is the first muscular female gun-toting heroine character she remembers. It was probably the prototype for many more to come. If you should decide to watch this, don’t make the mistake of settling for the failed American remake, Point of No Return.

Have you guys seen The Grifters? We just saw it-Angelica Houston, Annette Benning, and John Cusack. I think it was made in the 80s sometime…you might like it.
I did see The Grifters a long time ago. I vaguely remember being disappointed, but I was less of a movie buff back then. Maybe I should give it another try.
