'DOA: Dead Or Alive.' Yes, I love it.
This - without question my most frivolous Ka-Boomski! entry to date - is a semi-apology. A while back at B Through Z, I wrote a piece entitled Everybody Hates Paul, in which I lamented over the many failings of Paul WS Anderson. There was a vague passing reference to DOA: Dead Or Alive, which he co-produced. I dismissed it as "middle of the road." BTZ editor Jamie blasted my indifference, insisting "DOA rules."
I thought nothing of it for all this time, then ITV1 showed it last Friday night. And I watched. And...
Yes. DOA really does rule.
I'm not sure there's much else that really needs to be said on the matter. So...
No - there really isn't anything else that needs to said, is there? DOA...a modern masterpiece.
