Remember My Name & Fingers

Remember My Name

“Alan Rudolph owes a lot to Robert Altman, but this second film (his first was Welcome To L.A., 1977) upstages his mentor's recent squibs, and places him in the forefront of American directors. Rudolph's penchant for black humor recalls S.J. Perelman, along with his gift for unraveling a knotty story line in concise, lyrical fashion. Geraldine Chaplin and Tony Perkins are fine as the jittery protagonists in this updated film noir about an abandoned woman's peculiar revenge against her old lover. But Jeff Goldblum nearly steals the picture in a bit part - and oh, how Alberta Hunter can sing those blues.”
