The Synopsis for The Day of the Locust (1975) 1080p

Life's flotsam and jetsam turn up at late 1930's Hollywoodland's door, once more, in this insightful tale of wannabes and desperadoes. Tod Hackett, artist, has inspirations to become noticed until he meets Faye Greener, blonde bombshell, and is immediately smitten. She has other ideas. She has Homer Simpson, victim, in her sights and cruelty and loneliness takes new meaning as all three are slowly sucked into the Hollywood system of sycophants, diggers and parasites, sucking the life from others as the life, and soul, is slowly sucked from them.

Wow...

I've sat here in front of this blank for several minutes now.

I cannot find another word to describe this movie. The building tensionsare handled so deftly, the ending, which must rank among the most harrowingscenes in all art, comes both as a surprise and as no surprise.

William Atherton, Karen Black, Donald Sutherland, Burgess Meredith, RichardDysart - all incomparably perfect in every way in these roles.

Schlesinger is a master, the Barry score is cleverly arranged and the Hallphotography and Clark editing, especially in the final sequence is justabout the most prodigiously horrendous and horrific in allcinema.

I'm still shaking.

The Day of The Locust is an adaptation of the highly powerful novelfrom Nathanael West, it focuses on the seamy underbelly of Hollywood inthe 1930s. Pot boiling with pacey precision, director John Schlesingercrafts what is still to this day one of the hidden pieces of art fromthe 1970s.

We are witness to an assortment of odd characters on the outskirtsHollywood and it's big shiny star, fringe characters driven on by lessthan stellar ideals. The centre of it all is Karen Black's sexy butuntalented actress, Faye, she lives with her father, Harry {a fabulousBurgess Meredith}, who was once a fine stage performer but now is oldand dying and forced to peddle potions on door steps. Faye realisesthat her limitations are getting in the way of her starry ambitions, sothus she becomes the assembly line hump on the casting couch, shebelieves it's a small price to pay for the price of fame.

Caught up in Faye's maelstrom of shallow conniving worthlessness isWilliam Atherton's art director, Tod, and Donald Sutherland'ssympathetic dolt, Homer Simpson {Sutherland stunning and Atherton acareer best}. All three of them will come crashing together as thestory reaches it's cynical and terrifying conclusion. The Day Of TheLocust failed at the box office, mid seventies audiences were clearlynot ready for this unsavoury and stark look at the flip side of theindustry we all follow with relish. Many of the characters featured inthe piece are believed to be based on real life Hollywood figures, nowhere in this modern age the public embrace such titillation with glee,back then they clearly wasn't ready for it.

Conrad Hall's cinematography was rightly nominated for an AcademyAward, as was Burgess Meredith in the Best Supporting Actor category,but Sutherland, John Lloyd {Art} and Ann Roth {Costumes} werecriminally ignored, but it matters not for now this film can be viewedby a wider more open thinking audience, and hopefully as the finalegrips you round the throat {and it should do}, you will be forced tothink about it for some time after. 9/10

An outstanding attack on greed and corruption in HollywoodReviewed byJamalioVote: 10/10

To explain the plot of this film would make it seem unengaging, which is far from it. It is basically less a satire on the Hollywood conventional lifestyle than a near physical attack- before the films' climax commences, the viewer is subjected to a whole group of unsympathetic characters (bar a few- all of which seem to be male, and one of them is called Homer Simpson!) who cheat, lie, corrupt and use one another for the sake of their own superiority. In Hollywood terms, this is 'normal, everyday life'. For most of the film it becomes fairly un-involving, standard period drama, then descends into something darker once the characters most twisted desires are revealed- then, AN ALL OUT TWISTED, UTTERLY TERRIFYING HORROR FILM, which, if seen in context with the (mostly) heartless, cold and corrupt characters, makes complete sense (on a spiritual level at least). I was shown this film from a friend of mine recently, he told me to be prepared for the ending, and it still scared me witless on its' arrival. As such, it is an excellent and effective spin on the attack of a town full of scum and corruption in Hollywood that your ever likely to see 10/10.
