MINI BIO:Trying to build a Jack Palance filmography is like tracking down a whirlwind. Like some workaholic Jack the Ripper, this American actor of massive physical presence travelled half the world in search of audiences on whom to impose his fearsome personality. With a face rebuilt by plastic surgery after war burns, and a ferocious acting style, this son of Russian immigrants could hardly fail to dominate his films, and continued to do so, violence smouldering beneath a surface calm, for 40 years. In 1988, his career came full circle with a sadistic western villain in Young Guns. Received Oscar nominations for Sudden Fear and Shane. He finally won an Academy Award many decades later for City Slickers. The actresses Holly and Brooke Palance are his daughters. (Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Stars).

A blaggard is a villain, a rogue and a black-hearted man. Both are bad, both are devastatingly alluring. Lizabeth Scott After watc... Read full article

Jesus Raza: La RevoluciÛn is like a great love affair. In the beginning, she is a goddess. A holy cause. But... every love affair has a terrible enemy: time. We see her as she is. La RevoluciÛn is not a goddess but a whore. She was never pure, never saintly, never perfect. And we run away, find another lover, another cause. Quick, sordid affairs. Lust, but no love. Passion, but no compassion. Without love, without a cause, we are... *nothing*! We stay because we believe. We leave because we are disillusioned. We come back because we are lost. We die because we are committed.
