Something old, something new

First comes love . . .

Over at Alex on Film I’ve been watching a couple of takes on the Lonely Hearts Killers case of Martha Beck and Raymond Fernandez. The story was most famously adapted by Leonard Kastle in The Honeymoon Killers (1970), which retains all of its original power as a low-budget cult satire. Less well known, but still well worth checking out, is Fabrice Du Welz’s Alleluia (2014), which is a darker contemporary interpretation.
