Poster for Cannibal Ferox

Cannibal Ferox

4.0

1981, Adventure, Horror

A pretty weak excuse for a film and is only worthy of any note for its inordinate level of gore.

Poster for Flesh + Blood

Flesh + Blood

8.0

1985, Adventure, Drama

An intelligent and brutal entry in Paul Verhoeven’s filmography...

2018.08.06

Poster for Birdman of Alcatraz

Birdman of Alcatraz

9.0

1962, Drama

Burt Lancaster turns in one of his best performances of his career...

Poster for Gendai yakuza: hito-kiri yota

Gendai yakuza: hito-kiri yota

5.0

1972, Action, Suspense, Crime

This violent and interestingly deglamourised gangster flick is marred by its rather unlikeable and opaque central character, not to mention its ugly sexual politics.

Poster for The Terror of the Tongs

The Terror of the Tongs

4.0

1961, Adventure, Horror, Suspense

A dubious and largely racist historical potboiler.

2018.07.29

Poster for Yesterday's Enemy

Yesterday's Enemy

8.0

1959, Drama, War

A fierce and intelligent depiction of the ugly cruelties of war.

2018.07.29

Poster for The Stranglers of Bombay

The Stranglers of Bombay

4.0

1959, Adventure, Horror, Action, History

Unfortunately, it’s significantly less interesting than Blood Island.

2018.07.29

Poster for The Camp on Blood Island

The Camp on Blood Island

6.0

1958, Drama, Action, History, War

A gripping and grueling wartime drama graced with a suitably stoic, yet tangibly human lead performance by André Morell.

2018.07.29

Poster for Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout

10

2018, Adventure, Action, Suspense

The best action movie to come out in a long time. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

2018.07.26

Poster for Le Roi de cœur

Le Roi de cœur

8.0

1966, Drama, Comedy, War

Possesses enough surreal magic to make it well worth a look for any movie buff.

2018.07.22

Poster for The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey

The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey

8.0

1988, Adventure, Fantasy, Drama, Action, Mystery

A rich and imaginative work which will delight some but leave others cold.

2018.07.21

Poster for Alice Sweet Alice

Alice Sweet Alice

6.0

1976, Horror, Suspense, Mystery

Alice Sweet Alice, despite its flaws, is an intriguing tale of terror for him to leave us alone in the dark with.

2018.07.16

Poster for Racer and the Jailbird

Racer and the Jailbird

6.0

2017, Drama, Crime

Just enjoy the acting, the steamy sex scenes, the burst of fast-paced action...

2018.07.15

Poster for Allure

Allure

6.0

2018, Drama, Suspense, Love

While Allure is admirable in its performances and sense of honesty, a few technical and storytelling aspects fail to convince.

2018.07.13

Poster for La coda dello scorpione

La coda dello scorpione

7.0

1971, Suspense, Mystery

Might baffle the hell out of you, it succeeds in being enjoyably glossy Euro-trash.

2018.07.12

Poster for The China Syndrome

The China Syndrome

8.0

1979, Drama, Suspense

Isn’t quite the masterpiece that its reputation suggests, it still entertains and provokes in equal measure.

2018.07.08

Poster for Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

10

1985, Drama

It is idiosyncratic, it features some individual works which leave more impression than others, but we are still blown away at the end regardless.

2018.07.06

Poster for Several Conversations About a Very Tall Girl

Several Conversations About a Very Tall Girl

8.0

2018, Drama

The focus on the finer details of the relationship creates a gradual sense of investment which makes the climactic argument all the more shattering.

2018.07.04

Poster for Dark River

Dark River

6.0

2018, Drama, Suspense, Mystery

A large dose of artistically-mounted gloom porn rather than the truly explorative piece of work that it might have been.

2018.07.03

Poster for Ideal Home

Ideal Home

7.0

2018, Drama, Comedy

Rudd and Coogan manage to build up enough goodwill with their double act that its hard to resent the film’s shallow approach to its more serious aspects.

2018.07.02

Poster for Winterlong

Winterlong

7.0

2018

While there are a few shortcomings in terms of overall storyline construction, the quality of the performances and central character development do much to offset this.

2018.07.01

Poster for Solis

Solis

8.0

2018, Science fiction

The script and performances deepen and broaden the story considerably, lifting what could have been a simple “in the moment” adventure thriller to another level.

2018.07.01

Poster for The Devil Outside

The Devil Outside

5.0

2018, Drama

The dramatic conflict here is so unsubtle and lacking in nuance that it ends up being more hilarious than believable.

2018.06.30

A Punk Daydream

8.0

Drama, Documentary

There are a number of particularly startling and moving moments here.
