"Meet the Feebles" (1989)
Peter Jackson followed up "Bad Taste" with this all-puppet exploitation flick centered around a Muppets-style troop of performing animals. As they prep for the broadcast of a live TV special, these critters swear, drink, have sex, deal and use drugs, eat crap, and basically do stuff we don't usually see puppets doing.
I thought "Mr. No Legs" was gonna be the most WTF movie I'd see this year, but "Feebler" takes the frickin cake, folks. From the 'Nam flashbacks of a heroin-addicted frog to a rat that films porn on the side to a fox's musical number about sodomy, "Feebles" is a hilariously tasteless, ultra sleazy one-of-a-kind experience. You'll feel like you need a shower when it's over.

Reportedly, the film that brought Mrs. Jim Henson to tears, when she watched it.

As for myself . . .

Mala terra or the French version of the British TV miniseries Broad church, or, I should say the trailer for Mala Terra and its TV promos. As I have said previously, I think, Broad church is so badly done, it has killed off any interest in seeing the American version of it, Grace point, which is similar. Still . . .?! There are enough differences in this one, I think I might watch it, if I can find a streaming service on-line that has it dubbed into English or in English subtitles.

Filmed on the island of Corsica or the birthplace of Napoleon.

Religious character
The Protestant minister, obviously, becomes a Catholic priest.

It'd have to be different, as the character, who is the murderer in the Brit version, does not even exist in this version.

Competence of police investigation
In real life, I don't know whether the French police are any smarter or dumber than their Brit counterparts, but . . .?! here they do something smart that I didn't see in the Brit version. They have a line of men just walk the beach, where the victim is found, apparently from one end to the other, looking for clues.

Police partners
Male and female. Though the female partner looks and sounds like a boy, so she looks more like the female partner in the Brit version, than the American version.

No nudity
While anecdotal stories suggest that a victim of a sex murder, more so in the Brit version and less so in the American version, is often found in the nude, to further prevent identification of the victim, not so much here, as the victim is too well known, but . . .?! as one more humiliation they can heap on their victim. For the victim here, if not the motive, in all 3 versions, is an young pre-teen boy, who is found fully dressed.

Though . . .?! before this I'll probably watch Tras el cristal aka In a glass cage, the 1986 Spanish film based on the murderous career of the Frenchman Gilles de Rais, the 1st recorded serial child killer, who is believed to have killed between 40, the number of bodies found, and 600 children, ere he was executed. Though this film is set in the present, while Gilles lived in the 15th century.

Gilles is believed to have been the inspiration for Perrault to write his French fairy tale Bluebeard, which itself was the inspiration for several films, including the 1944 film of the same title with John Carradine as the title character.

6 mysteries + 1 non-mystery

G. M. Malliet
either a Brit or an American ex-pat
award winner
The haunted season
5th in the Max Tudor series
Hero: English
Place: England
Time: present

A woman critic about a woman authoress for a woman reader. As a man it makes me laugh, at how much they overrate authoress Tana French, as this writer is a much better writer, who does not fall back to male stereotypes for her male characters, which Tana French did in her last book, ere her latest, which is now out. Which may be why the Max Tudor series is one of my favorite mystery series, as the authoress seems to understand men and her male characters.

D. E. Ireland

The fact is . . .
but . . .?! 1st . . .

A son. A daughter. Missing. An year. 2 years. 3 years. 4 years. What I'd like to see in any film version of "Thanos Rising," which is not in the graphic novel, is the discovery of his victim's bodies, which are probably buried with the great cave ape in the same area, and that can be done by a sudden flashflood, a sandstorm, etc. Just to provide the parents of these missing kids with some relief, as to what happened to their kids.

The fact is . . .
There are too many sexual assaults, both here in the U.S. and around the world. Though . . .?! Most do not rise to the level of an international incident. Though . . .?! There was one that did almost 10 years ago, which may be why I feel some empathy for its victim.

His parents were separated, and while his mother and his older brother remained in Europe, while his older brother was in school, he lived with his father in a Mideast country, where his father managed a hotel, and all was good. Till after one day at the beach and an evening at the arcade at the mall, he was looking for a ride to take him home to eat dinner with his father. And that is when he ran into a boy he knew, a 17-year-old classmate from school, who offered him a ride home, and he accepted, thinking nothing wrong, nor did he think nothing wrong when 2 more people, an 18-year-old and a 35-year-old showed up at the car, as they were cousins of his classmate.

He only knew something was wrong, when they did not turn off at the exit, that would take him home, but . . .?! instead continuing out to the desert, where they stopped on a desert road. That is when he tried to use his cellphone to reach the local police, and that is when they took away his cellphone, beat him, and at knifepoint, stripped him naked, and when he was stark naked, they each took a turn sodomizing him. And when they had finished, they threatened him with the knife and a pool cue and told him, if he went to the police, since they knew where he lived, they'd kill him, kill his parents, and burn down the house.

It is said that a rape victim is raped twice. Once by their rapist and once by the legal system. I don't know how true that is, but . . .?! That is what happened this time. When his father, despite the threats took him to the police, after a perfunctory medical exam, since it was obvious he had recently he had sex, and there is only the crime of "forcible homosexuality" in this country, he must have been a homosexual, and he was going to be arrested and charged as being a homosexual, as homosexuality was illegal in his country. To prevent that he fled back to Europe to his mother and older brother.

Never get between mama she bear and her cub. She'll eat you alive. I'd like to see his story made into a film, as what follows is a great story and would make a great film. When she found out what had happened to her son, having made friends with many of the French politicians, including at that time the President of France, from her days in French TV, she used her political connections to have the French government bring pressure on the other government, and she started an on-line petition calling for a complete boycott of his country, which I signed, till they did right be her son. Thus with private pressure and public pressure, pressure from above and pressure from below, this lone woman wrestled the other government to its knees and got it to rescind the charges against her son and arrest his 3 attackers.

The youngest attacker was tried in juvenile court, but . . .?! the other 2, after a lengthy trial of 3 days, were sentence to 15 years in prison. Still she was not satisfied, as he wanted the oldest attacker tried for attempted murder, as he was HIV positive, and she protested vociferously in court at this injustice, and had to be removed from court. And the other government knew the oldest attacker was HIV positive, but . . .?! they did not notify the boy nor his family of this, even though there is apparently something that can be done to help prevent becoming HIV positive, but . . .?! it must be done quickly, and when the boy and his family learned this, it was too late to do something. So there was the fear that he'd become HIV positive. Fortunately, this did not happen.

Alexandre Robert.  Teen. (15 at the time of the incident) Hero. French-Swiss. Upper middle class. Injured. Victim. Unknown. Present.

A perfect example of "Wrong person. Wrong place. Wrong time." Thus . . .?! my wish for all of you is "Right person. Right place. Right time."

Okay. That is enough about me.

Next time: The 67.
