“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

The Psychic (1968)
aka Copenhagen's Psychic Loves How bad is it? Dull film with inserted sex scenes. Should you see it? No.
This is NOT the Fulci film of the same name from 1977 - I think people who rated this highly made that mistake. This was co-written and shot by Herschell Gordon Lewis (who's all over this blog), but directed by someone else, who never made another film. A man falls off a ladder, has brain surgery and becomes psychic. He then tries to use these new powers of foreseeing the future to help him in business and his love life. The film is dull and was considered un-releasable, so nude inserts were added to try to spice it up and it was retitled to market with "I Am Curious" and other Scandinavian art-house films. It's till dull.
