Blow-Up (1966)

When you look up 'mod films' online the first one to always come up is Blow-Up, the 1966 film directed by Michelangelo Antonioni and starring David Hemmings, Vanessa Redgrave, & Sarah Miles. Models Jane Birkin and Peggy Moffitt among others also make an appearance. This film is a art-house classic and if you haven't seen it you must do so right this second. It has wonderful 60s fashion and murder mystery (two things that I love). It's a bleak but stylish look through the lens of a bored mod voyeur who accidentally photographs a murder while shooting pictures of a mysterious girl in a quiet park in London. xoxo

Ye-Ye Ennui

French born ye-ye girl Annie Philippe never quite reached the fame of the likes of France Gall, Sylvie Vartan, and Françoise Hardy but was nonetheless lovely and talented. xoxo

Danger Diabolik (1968)

No Eurospy film or any spy film for that matter will ever live up to the pure awesomeness that is Mario Bava's 1968 spy masterpiece Danger Diabolik. Amazing performances by the man with the most intense eyes ever John Philip Law and the gorgeous Italian bombshell Marisa Mell. Add to that an incredible soundtrack by Ennio Morricone and you have all the makings of a spy classic. I've watched this film over 50 times and it just keeps getting better every time I see it. Danger Diabolik has everything. A badass super spy with cool cars, a swingin' pad, and one of the coolest outfits ever. A super sexy, smart, kick-ass accomplice who saves his ass on multiple occasions. Oh, and don't forget the ugly, rat bastard bad guy who has tons of money and boats and go-go pads and a penchant for setting traps. Do yourself a favor and watch Danger Diabolik now. xoxo

I love this song. So good!
