The Mechanic (1972)

The MechanicNetflix IMDb
Join me for another fun-filled dive into the world of existentialist hit men and the philosophy and tools of their trade. It’s Charles Bronson as the master and Jan Michael Vincent as his lovely leading lady and protege. Thrill to the dialog-free opening 15 minutes! Be electrified by the amazing house, gadgets, and cars! Be weirded out by the suicide-as-spectator-sport sequence!

I compare the film to Day of the Jackal, James Bond films, other Bronson films, and Air Wolf. I evaluate the effectiveness of being meticulous against the actual results Arthur achieves. And I occasionally wish that Jan Michael Vincent was a girl and that the girls in the movie could act.

Start the commentary after the studio logos, with the white sky about to fade in, on the countdown.

  2. My friend, please do the commentary on Al Pacino’s’ city hall.I am not sure if you liked that movie.By the way what is the qualification of doing the commentaries?


  3. My qualifications for doing commentaries? I’m just a dude who loves movies and has watched a million of them. Also, I have an English literature degree that sometimes helps.
