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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

Funny, nasty, incisive and tragic. However, it definitely a film which you will need to steel yourself up for.

A well-meaning entry in the series which explores the theme of racial prejudice. Sadly, good intentions don’t always translate to good movies.

As to whether Once Upon a Time in China II is quite as awe-inspiring as its predecessor is open to debate. Nonetheless, it’s still a very worthy follow-up.
