Sure Criterion is releasing movies faster than we're consuming them, but hey, 200 is still a great milestone, right? Besides, someday either the Criterion Collection will die, or we will, and then the disparity won't matter! Hurrah!
Unfortunately, this film isn't quite the joy that our last C-note was, but how could it be? Criterion can't always reward us, especially since I just established that we're in some sort of fatalist competition with the Collection itself.
Leonard Kastle's ripped-from-the-headlines The Honeymoon Killers (1970) isn't a great film. It does have some great scenes, all of which seem to have been shot by Martin Scorsese before he was unceremoniously fired for taking too much time. That's the sort of production we're dealing with here. Beware!
