Travolta is in and out of town, setting up production for a film shoot. Imagine my dismay when I realized this thing, called Lonely Hearts, is based on Ray Fernandez and Martha Beck, two killers who preyed on lonely hearts respondents in the 1940's. In other words, this is a remake of Leonard Kastle's brilliant 1970 classic The Honeymoon Killers.
Fuck all. The original is so dark, so depraved, so far beyond noir it is generally considered a crime to even consider a remake. An entire soundtrack of Gustav Mahler, Shirley Stoller as Martha Beck, you can't go there.
I, for one, won't spend a penny on this travesty. Goddam Scientologists.
