The Exterminator (1980)

So strange to see the twin towers standing tall. So rare to get a glimpse of office windows so close by in a movie that you can almost see the people inside them, and to get as intimate a street-side view of the city as you do here. Of New York. HQ of the land of the free, but not really. Rare with Country music in both intro and outro too, like this was more a Western than a Crime movie.

It's a movie from the time bad guys couldn't win, I thought. But maybe it was just a time when black guys still couldn't be the heroes. It turned into an unexpectedly good movie nevertheless! The views. The grit. Robert Ginty out for vengeance, as an Action Bronson-type vigilante, with mercury bullets and burner. It feels pretty real! The beheading at the start of the film took me by surprise too. The burnt-out corpse as well. Some bits seem stereotypical but some surprise you.

Hope all went well, in the end, but as a trademark of a good movie you don't know for sure...
