    Agency 1980

    ★★★ Watched 29 Nov, 2016

    An uneven entertaining Canadian thriller that feels like the pilot for a failed TV series. If you enjoy halfassed conspiracy theories, Lee Majors wearing coats, cartoon villains and scatalogical jokes, this one is for you.

  • Cherry Blossom: Spring Fantasy

    Cherry Blossom: Spring Fantasy 1946

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Nov, 2016

    A gorgeous short anime by the legendary Kenzō Masaoka. It follows two butterflies exploring a park where people enjoy hanami, picnicking under trees carrying cherry blossom (sakura). A lovely introduction to the Buddhist concept of mono no aware.

    Footprints 1975

    ★★★★ Watched 12 Sep, 2016 1

    Alice, the always fantastically brooding Florinda Bolkan, works as a translator when all of sudden she loses her job and finds herself on the small island of Garma. People tell her she has been there before, recently, but she knows this is not possible.

    Both English-language posters try to sell Le orme as an action-ridden sci-fi giallo, but oh boy you're in for an unsettling treat when you manage to leave that perception behind! Le orme can be placed somewhere between Don't Look Now and that other Alice film, Chabrol's Alice ou la dernière fugue. Drifting and elegant, distant and claustrophobic.
