Tonight is our 365th Rialto Recommends. We began these nightly recommendations on March 20, 2020 but missed a few days here and there for assorted reasons. Along the way there were films that we wanted to recommend that at the time were not available on the major streaming services. Tonight's choice, Mike Figgis' 1988 neo-noir romantic thriller STORMY MONDAY was one that until this month was not on any streaming services. Starring Melanie Griffith, Tommy Lee Jones and Sting in a performance that revealed he was an actor, STORMY MONDAY launched Mike Figgis' career as a feature film director. A crooked American businessman tries to push the shady influential owner of a nightclub in Newcastle, England to sell him the club. The club's new employee and the American's ex lover fall in love and inadvertently stir the pot. The New York Times raved "Mr. Figgis, who is a musician as well as a film maker, brings the place, the plot and the film's haunting characters vibrantly to life. What's more, he makes them irresistibly interesting." While in his 3.5 star review Roger Ebert said "STORMY MONDAY is about the way light falls on wet pavement stones, and about how a neon sign glows in a darkened doorway." STORMY MONDAY is streaming on Hoopla and DirectTV. Check out this hard to find late 80's indie.
