Eric’s Bad Movies: ‘Night of the Lepus’ (1972)

Thursday, February 11th, 2010
Man, you go out of town for 11 days, then come home for four, then leave again for four, and everything just piles up on you. Between Sundance and last weekend’s delightful experience at the Oxford Film Festival, I feel like I’m still recovering from traveling and eating and not sleeping (and then sleeping too much), and overdoing some things and underdoing other things. That is why this post is late, I guess.
Eric’s Bad Movies at Film.com is a famously lame monster film, “Night of the Lepus,” in which rabbits are enlarged and become carnivorous. I remember seeing part of this on TV once when I was young, and being practically giddy at the thought of a movie — an actual MOVIE, with famous actors and everything — being so terrible. It seemed inconceivable. Now, of course, I understand that this is commonplace. The dewy patina of my youth has washed away, leaving a cankered and gnarled soul.
What’s the Big Deal? at Film.com focuses on “Bicycle Thieves” (aka “The Bicycle Thief”), a beautiful Italian film from 1948. It’s one of the best films I’ve ever seen about the theft of a bicycle, next to “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure,” of course.

I hate it when I clean the bathroom because people are coming over, and then no one uses it. WHY DID I BOTHER??
