‘TILL DEATH US DO PART

Oy vey!!! He leaves the toilet seat up. She wears too much perfume. He never asks directions. She’s always late. You want his money. He wants your sister. Poison? Driven to suicide or just a bullet in the brain? Do you do it yourself? Or do you get someone to help you?  Trust is never as important as it is when murder is involved. You must kill her. You must kill him. And if you don’t do it yourself, you must trust your accomplice.  Is love a many~splendored thing?

Hell…what’s LOVE got to do with it.

I got the idea of murder listening to the episode: “WIVES IN PERIL” by the ANY LADLE’S SWEET THAT DISHES OUT SOME GRAVY podcast, hosted by two very lovely ladies: Danielle Smith and Megan McGurk. You can find them on FACEBOOK. I thought this would make a good topic bloggers could really seek their teeth into. Well they certainly did. There are many tried and true favorites here and a couple of new movies I’ve never heard of. Below is the directory of bloggers who decided to write of mayhem and murder and marriages gone wrong. Thank you for reading, and a big THANK YOU to the bloggers who make a blogathon what it is.

And now…MURDER:

SYMBIOTIC COLLABORATIONS: A RE-VISIT

CLASSIC SYMBIOTIC COLLABORATIONS: THE STAR – DIRECTOR BLOGATHON:

I hosted my first blogathon waaay back during a cold and blizzard-y New York City weekend six months ago.

As I make my way through each essay, I see that the collaborative teams chosen by these bloggers show a kind of love…or, just love actually, in the teams’ relationships. For a writer-director to have an actor corporeally embody his ( her ) words and vision is a dream. For an actor to have a character so vivid to inhabit…or the blank canvas to paint with must be wonderfully creative.

These entries have served to make me want to revisit these films or see them for the first time. And for that, I am grateful for their contributions. So here they are again. Good reading for a cold winter’s night. Good reading for a warm summer’s day. Good reading:
