French connection.  203 Pug. Ute or whatever.

A collection of old movies has been on TV. Again. The Wild One and Easy Rider on ABC2 provide a chance to check out filming, dialogue, levels of violence and see what has changed. Was Marlon's angst unconvincing? The filming reveals very little about the motor cycle as machine.
Denis Hopper went from Easy Rider to Mad Dog Morgan (1976 Australian) with rare points and absence of neat twists and turns to gratify the viewer. Things did not end there. The French filmmakers got down to the dark minutia of life - for a change - in the Piano Teacher -  a confronting trio in sonata form.
 Stay with over-the-top and show us again Death In Venice compleate with Mahler magic.
