Everyone around him, including police lieutenant Pete Ramirez (No Way Out's ...


America as Seen by a Frenchman AKA L'Amérique insolite (Blu-ray) by Paul Lewis (9th July 2020)

America as Seen by a Frenchman (L'Amérique insolite, Francois Reichenbach, 1960) In 1851, Jean-Jacques Ampere visited America and wrote a book about his experiences there, Promenade en Amerique: Etats-unis—Cuba—Mexique. The book, a companion piece of sorts to Alexis de Tocqueville’s iconic De La Démocratie en Amérique (Democracy in America, published in two volumes, in 1835 and 1840), offered an outsider’s view on American culture. Ampere’s volume, however, suffered from being seen as middlebrow. In response to Ampere’s observations about American culture, in 1856 The National Magazine published an article, ‘America as Seen by a Frenchman’ which began, quite wordily, ‘We have read in our time many ludicrous descriptions of our country, but the one given of the manners, customs, associations, and general living of Americans, by M. Ampere […], who was, it was thought, a person in every way qualified to give an opinion upon the new social and political conditions that are daily developing themselves among the people of the United States, transcends, in ridic...

She is also pursued by two members of the tabloid press, muckraker journalist Paul (Jimmy Nail) and photographer Russell (Timothy Spall), who are apparently keen to publish an article underscoring Oliver’s role in ‘murdering a lot of Argentinians’ whilst also highlighting Diana’s status as a virgin. Diana finds an ally in Jenny (...

Pet Shop Boys in It Couldn't Happen Here by James-Masaki Ryan (5th July 2020)

"It Couldn't Happen Here" (1987) Electronic synth pop duo Pet Shop Boys scored with both critics and music fans with their 1986 debut "Please", with memorable hits like "Opportunities", "Suburbia", and "West End Girls", the last which topped the charts in their native UK, in the US, and in Canada. The album went platinum in the UK and the US and scored high on the charts in many other countries around the world. A follow-up album was highly anticipated, and their label EMI Records gave them an opportunity to promote their sophomore album with a extended long form music video release through their film division PMI (Picture Music International). The duo, comprised of Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, met with director Jack Bond and collaborated on the long form video, but with ideas expanding further, the project was looking to become a feature length production rather than a promotional piece. In the summer of 1987, Pet Shop Boys released the singles "It's a Sin" and "Wha...

Tartuffe by Eric Cotenas (1st July 2020)

Elmire (Destiny's Lil Dagover) is looking forward to the return of her husband Orgon (Waxworks' Werner Krauss) from a trip, but she hardly recognizes him upon reunion. Gone is his cheerful and lusty demeanor. He is solemn and withdrawing, burying his nose in a copy of the Bible and shunning the luxuries of their home as extravagances from light bulbs, artwork, and furnishings to the extra staff of longtime family retainers who he fires apart from housekeeper Dorine (Lucie Höflich). The cause of this change is Tartuffe (Varieté's Emil Jannings), a strictly pious individual whose acquaintance Orgon has made on his trip and who he has invited into his home as a guest. Despite spending virtually every waking moment with Tartu...


Varda by Agnès by James-Masaki Ryan (28th June 2020)

"Varda by Agnès" ("Varda par Agnès") (2019) Photographer, artist, filmmaker Agnès Varda created some of the most creative, ambitious, socially aware, experimental, and heartfelt works in cinema and beyond through her very lengthy career, and it was a sad day when she passed away on March 29th, 2019 at the age of 90. The Belgian-born France based filmmaker was one of the pioneers of the French New Wave from the 1950s and one of the few female filmmakers in the director's chair, and throughout the decades and into the new millennium continued to work in various forms of art. From her eye in photography posted on her Instagram to art installations using multiple screens at museums, she had continued to work beyond the two dimensional realm of standard cinema in the new millennium with feisty creativity. In "Varda by Agnès", Varda essentially makes the most meta and personal film of her entire career, by the subject being Agnès Varda career. The documentary film starts at a lecture she gives to a welcoming audience filled with film aficionados much younger than her. She discusses the three words that had guided he...


White Fire AKA Vivre pour survivre (Blu-ray) by Paul Lewis (24th June 2020)

Ingrid works for a diamond mine. Her boss is the sadistic Yilmaz, the mine’s security officer. Ingrid has been stealing diamonds from the mine with her brother Bo; the pair pass these diamonds on to Sam, who is working for smuggler Apaydin. Bo and Ingrid are abducted at gunpoint by Barbossa (Benito Stefanelli) and Sophia (Mirella Banti), gangsters who want a cut of the smuggling action. Bo and Ingrid escape but suspect Apaydin of double-crossing them. Meanwhile, in the mine a worker discovers a huge diamond – a mythical stone forged millennia ago. In legend, this diamond has been given the name ‘White Fire’. Radioactive, the White Fire diamond will burn anyone who touches it. After the mine worker tells Yilmaz and Ingrid about finding the White Fire, ...


Good Posture by James-Masaki Ryan (21st June 2020)

She moves in with old family friends Don (played by Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Julia (played by Emily Mortimer) who happen to live in the same Brooklyn neighborhood, and while Don is quite relaxed with his old friend's daughter staying with them, Julia is quite the opposite. She avoids as much contact as possible with Lilian and keeps to herself, and even becoming slightly jealous that her husband is giving some of his time to the houseguest rather than to the wife. But after a late night argument has Don leaving the house, the sheltered Lilian is left alone with the equally if not more sheltered Julia. The tw...


Distant Journey by Eric Cotenas (21st June 2020)

At the height of the German occupation of Czechoslovakia, those complicit to the rise of the "Second Republic" set out to correct "mistakes" including ridding businesses of Jewish partners, and optometrist Dr. Hana Kaufmanová (Witchhammer's Blanka Waleská) is asked to leave her position (her superior suggests she either practice elsewhere or find another kind of job). With the threat of transport on the horizon, her colleague Dr. Antonin "Tonik" Bures (The Great Adventure's Otomar Krejca) asks her to marry him since the spouses of Aryans can escape transport orders for now; even though it comes at the cost of him losing his job and being forced to work at work camps for Aryan husbands. Despite the misgivings of Hana's childhood friend Honza (Jirí Spirit) and Tonik's cobbler father (Border Village's ...


The Great Leap by Eric Cotenas (21st June 2020)

Severely stressed out and on the verge of a nervous breakdown, Berliner Michael Treuherz (champion skier and cinematographer Hans Schneeberger) is advised by his doctor to take a vacation (and find a wife), so he heads with his valet Paul (The Wildcat's Paul Graetz) to the South Tyrol. Paul realizes that his master is far more adept at scaling molehills than mountains, and Michael's adventurous spirit nearly gets him killed on more than one occasion. It's love at first sight when Italian goatherd Gita (Triumph of the Will's Leni Riefenstahl) rescues Michael from a watermill, but his attempts to romance her cause tension with rival suitor and Michael's guide Tomi (The Doomed Battalion's Luis Trenker). When Gita sees an advertisement for a ski...

Little Joe by James-Masaki Ryan (14th June 2020)

"Little Joe" (2019) Alice (played by Emily Beecham) is a scientist at a plant breeding facility working on a project nicknamed "Little Joe", a genetically modified flower that is aimed to bring happiness to its caretaker. Interacting with it and taking care much more than a regular plant or flower, the pollen and aroma it brings is designed to ease and soothe, and tests seem to be going well, with plans for industry showcases and global sales on the horizon. The plant was nicknamed after Alice's pre-teen son Joe (played by Kit Connor), and as a single mother, Alice tries to make an effort to be both a loving mother and a strict worker but the lack of time makes things difficult as a family. While it goes against protocol, Alice takes a Little Joe home and has her son look after it, but this alongside some unusual behavior by coworkers and happenings in the facility lead to making Alice question whether the plant is actually bringing happiness or something different... "Little Joe" on the surface sounds like a horror film premise, and the inspirations certainly...

Neil spots Madeline and the couple follow her to the home of Frye (James Earl Jones), a diver and treasure hunter, where they also meet Frye’s friend (lover?) Barbara (Lydia Cornell). Frye has discovered an underwater cave containing ancient coins. He is unaware that centuries ago, these coins were placed on rafts with victims of sacrifice; these rafts were pushed into the cave where the v...


The Golem by Eric Cotenas (7th June 2020)

In the Jewish ghetto of medieval Prague, Rabbi Loew (The Jew of Mestri's Albert Steinrück) has curried the favor of the Emperor (Fridericus Rex's Otto Gebühr) by providing his horoscope and entertaining the kingdom with feats of magic; however, the danger he sees in the stars for the Jewish people comes in the Emperor's decree that all Jews must leave the city before the new moon on charges (citing not only the blood libel but also the practice of black magic).

The Flavour of Green Tea Over Rice by James-Masaki Ryan (7th June 2020)

A middle aged couple without children, they are quite well off with servants working in their home with Mokichi having a comfortable high paying office job.

Funeral Parade of Roses by James-Masaki Ryan (7th June 2020)

"Funeral Parade of Roses" 「薔薇の葬列」 (1969) Describing the plot of experimental filmmaker Toshio Matsumoto's first feature film is quite difficult. Not following a traditional storytelling structure and mixing both narrative fiction as well as documentary interludes in a non-linear format, there isn't an easy way to tell people what it is. It has long been on my personal list of favorite films because there is nothing quite like it anywhere else. When recommending it to friends, the question is always "What is it about?", to which my only answer is "You just have to see it." But as this is a review, I can't just start and end with that. Therefore I'll have to break it down with the important aspects. Eddie (played by Peter) is young person working at a gay cabaret club in Shinjuku, who is in a relationship with Mr. Gonda (played by Yoshio Tsuchiya), a much older man and the manager of the cabaret. Gonda is not only having a relationship with Eddie, but also with Leda (play...


The Beast and the Magic Sword by Robert Segedy (3rd June 2020)

As a certified Monster Kid, I can remember arguing with my friends about Universal’s classic film, "The Wolf Man" (1941) and whether Lon Chaney Jr. in his transformed animal self could drive a car or not. At the time it seemed important to me, and I can only suppose that Paul Naschy would seriously relate to that hypothetical question because he too shared a serious relationship with the character and his cursed heritage. The reason why I conjecture that Naschy would understand my dilemma is that because he had previously starred and directed himself in nine other outings as the tragic werewolf figure Waldemar Danisky but this time there is a changeup. Not only do we get some background history on the doomed figure, but most of the action takes place in feudal 16th century Japan. This was a historical Spanish/Japanese co-production and the film was never shown theatrically in Japan, or anywhere else except Spain. The film was never dubbed into English prior to this release and was never available on VHS or DVD in the states; this is your chance to see some interesting filmmaking on a much larger budget than what Naschy was accustomed ...


Alastair Sim's School for Laughter: The Belles of St. Trinian's by Eric Cotenas (1st June 2020)

Zombie by Anthony Arrigo (1st June 2020)

When the topic of zombie films is brought up, the question for me isn’t “fast vs. slow” but “American vs. Italian” because, really, those are the two countries that have done more to get flesh eaters on the map than anywhere else. On the U.S. shores, George A. Romero’s "Dawn of the Dead" (1978) is nearly impossible to top, delivering social commentary, gross-out gags, richly developed characterization - and he did it all with style. Plus, a score by Italy’s progressive rock outfit Goblin (billed as “The Goblins” in the opening credits) only further elevated the groundbreaking feature. Italian filmmakers are always looking for a hit film to unofficially sequelize into oblivion – thanks to a weird copyright rule allowing for such things - and George’s seminal sequel was fertile ground. Just one year later, Italian writer/director Lucio Fulci, who at that time was best known for his giallo pictures, took up the reins and delivered what is arguably Italy’s greatest undead feature, "Zombie" (1979, a.k.a. "Zombi 2", "Zombie Flesh Eaters...


Women Make Film: A New Road Movie Through Cinema by James Francis Ryan (31st May 2020)

"Woman Make Film: A New Road Movie Through Cinema" (2018) In the history of cinema, women have been directing film ever since the dawn of the artform. There are female filmmakers across the globe that continue to produce work. But when critics, cinephiles, film fans make a list of favorite films, where are the works of the female film directors? Looking at the Top 100 Greatest Films of All Time list by Sight and Sound and listed on the BFI, there are female directors. Chantal Akerman's "Jeanne Dielman, 23 Commerce Quay, 1080 Brussels" is at 35. "Beau Travail" by Claire Denis is at 78. And that's it. Two out of one hundred films in the top list were directed by women. The Golden Globes have only given one director statue to a female director and that was to Barbra Streisand for ...


From Iceland to Eden by Eric Cotenas (30th May 2020)

Running for his life in only a towel from a Salvia deal gone bad, Oli (Albatross' Hansel Eagle) bursts into the first unlocked house on a suburban street only to discover stoned Lóa (Webcam's Telma Huld Jóhannesdóttir) nearly drowned in the bathtub and "Molly" dealer Steini in the living room dead of an overdose. Fearing Steini's suppliers, Oli and Lóa got to pot dealer friends Gunni (Einar Viðar G. Thoroddsen) and Ronni (Gunnar Marís) to lay low and make some fast money. While Gunni and Ronni are saving up to retire in Cuba, Oli's dream is to open up a meditation camp while Lóa fancies taking up ballet again. When they visit Oli's friend Vigga (Tinna Sverrisdóttir) and discover that she too has overdosed, they initially plan to steal her stash of morphine only to discover among ...


Empathy, Inc (Blu-ray) by Paul Lewis (30th May 2020)

Empathy, Inc. (Yedidya Gorsetman, 2018) Synopsis: When start-up tech firm GTI (Genesis Technology Integrated) goes bankrupt, investor Joel (Zach Robidas) finds himself a pariah in the business world. Losing his house, he is forced to move in with his wife Jessica’s (Kathy Searle) parents. Ward (Fenton Lawless), Jessica’s father, reveals to Joel that he has a million dollars in savings. Soon afterwards, Joel encounters an old schoolmate, Nicky ‘Sleazy’ Beezy (Eric Berryman), who tells Joel of an investment opportunity focused on a unique ‘virtual experience’ – X-VR, developed by Nicky’s business partner Lester (Jay Klaitz) – which allows clients to place themselves in the shoes of someone less fortunate. Nicky asks Joel if he would like to be involved in the business, using his prior experience to raise investors for X-VR. Joel insists on experience X-VR himself, finding himself as a balding middle-aged man with stomach problems. Exiting the mach...


Underwater by Anthony Arrigo (26th May 2020)

Since the great Underwater Creature Feature explosion of 1989 - a year that saw at least six similarly-themed pictures released within the same calendar year - monster mayhem beneath the waves has been infrequent; a few pictures here and there over the years, some worth remembering. A big studio picture of that ilk hasn’t been since “Deep Rising” way back in 1998 (not counting the “dime a dozen” killer shark/croc films). Then, this January, a couple months before the worldwide pandemic in which we are still living hit, the last gasp of 20th Century Fox was released onto the big screen - and the final picture released by that storied studio was a deep sea Lovecraftian tale that had been sitting on the shelf since 2017, “Underwater” (2020)… …and just like star Kristen Stewart’s other recent big film, “Charlie’s Angels” (2019), this, too, was a bomb on impact, opening low and then quickly sinking into the box office trenches. Too bad because it isn’t a terrible film by any means, and if you’ve spent the past couple decades pining for abyssal action then chances are good you’ll enjoy what director ...
