Miracle Mile… how the hell didn’t i know about this?!

June 19, 2011

Every so often I come across a movie that leaves me wondering: “How the hell didn’t I know about this?!”  Miracle Mile is one of those films.  Considering my obsession with nuclear war… as well as my taste for excellent filmmaking… you’d have thought I’d have been singing praise for this film since it’s ’89 release.   But, unfortunately, I stumbled across this gem only last week.  But now I’m happy to share it with you.  Miracle Mile is an enjoyable and surprising flick.  Going into it I thought the movie was a dark comedy like Dr. Strangelove or American Psycho… boy was I surprised.   Another great selling point for me:  it’s Los Angeles location.  My then-girlfriend worked across the street from the La Brea Tar Pits down there on Wilshire Boulevard, an area of L.A. that the movie borrows its name from.

Check out the trailer…

 

And here’s an excellent (though mildly spoileris) review:
