I’ve said this many times before – I LOVE REVENGE FILMS. I’ve never seen a revenge film that I haven’t liked and I doubt I ever will. Someone getting fucked over by some fucks then fucking over whichever fucks fucked them over, is fucking brilliant.

There are exceptions of course (Russ Meyer for example), but in the general majority of cases, movies made in the ’60s and before, can suck my stonking tonk bonk-on and fuck off.
