Poster for 快餐車

快餐車

7

While Wheels on Meals isn’t necessarily the finest hour for any of the three leads, it’s still a decent entry and a very worthwhile addition to any fan’s collection.

Poster for Dhogs

Dhogs

8

Dhogs is an engrossing and distinctive take on the story-within-a-story subgenre which will keep you pondering for days afterwards.

Poster for Sink the Bismarck!

Sink the Bismarck!

6

Sink the Bismarck! remains a fairly solid account of a significant WWII battle.

Class of 1999

6

While Class of 1999 isn’t a particularly great film, it is enjoyable if taken in the right spirit.

Poster for 女必殺五段拳

女必殺五段拳

6

It’s of some interest mainly because it at least offers a genuine change of pace after three very similar efforts.

Poster for 帰ってきた女必殺拳

帰ってきた女必殺拳

7

The set design and cinematography are somewhat slicker, the action sequences are better assembled and, while the runtime is about eight minutes shorter, it feels like a modicum of extra effort was devoted to developing the characters.

Poster for 女必殺拳 危機一発

女必殺拳 危機一発

6

To be fair, despite my criticisms above, it still delivers the requisite chopsocky action in spades. It’s just that it doesn’t quite have the same charm or invention as the first one did.

女必殺拳

8

It’s an indisputable 1970s Japan-cheese classic which also comes with an invigorating soundtrack. Naturally, considering the era, it leans very heavily on the wah-wah pedal.

A Severed Head is, quite frankly, a baffling film...

Alien is one of the finest meldings of science fiction and horror ever created.

Poster for Take a Girl Like You

Take a Girl Like You

Take a Girl Like You is almost toe-curlingly dated.

The Third Secret

The Third Secret is a flawed film but not without some merit.

Poster for 東京流れ者

東京流れ者

8

Tokyo Drifter is a startling one-of-a-kind audio-visual feast which may confound some, especially on first viewing.

Poster for Psyche 59

Psyche 59 doesn’t really work as anything other than a strange curiosity.

Poster for Picnic

Picnic

6

Picnic is of some interest if you can get past the dated aspects and uncomfortable casting of William Holden.

Poster for Human Desire

Human Desire

An underrated entry in Fritz Lang’s filmography and comes highly recommended to film noir fans.

Poster for True Stories

True Stories

6

True Stories was a clear labour of love for David Byrne but ends up being more of an interesting mess than a bona fide gem.

Poster for Hush... Hush, Sweet Charlotte

Hush... Hush, Sweet Charlotte

10

I’m going to go out on a limb and admit that I actually slightly prefer Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte to What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?. While not quite as original as its predecessor, it pushes the delirious gothic exuberance that bit further.

Poster for Climax

Climax

8

Climax isn’t easy viewing but it is compelling. Well worth a look if you appreciate the extremist and confrontational end of the cinematic spectrum.

R.P.M.

7

R.P.M. is no Stanley Kramer classic but makes for a fascinating curiosity and snapshot of a volatile era in American politics.

Poster for The Last Movie

The Last Movie

2

While there’s something of a message about American cultural arrogance and adventurism here, it becomes lost amid the vacuum created by the lack of a comprehensible story.

Poster for Gardens of Stone

Gardens of Stone

A worthy movie but doesn’t come close to matching the brilliance of Francis Ford Coppola’s finest works.

This average aerial rescue tale just about flies on account of its enjoyable performances and exciting climax.
