  • The Story of O

    The Story of O

    ★★½

    The beautiful O is taken by her boyfriend, Rene, to a bizarre retreat, where she is trained in bondage and sexual perversion.
    "True love" presented as the result of a sexist master/slave relationship, the movie tells its story in aestheticized erotic sequences without any comprehensible development.

  • The Promise

    The Promise

    ★★★

    Documentary about the crime story of the double murder of Derek and Nancy Haysom on 30 March 1985 in Lynchburg, Virginia.
    This documentary explores a complex and fascinating crime case and offers new proof, but, despite revealing a most likely unjust verdict, remains oddly without passion.

  • Alien

    Alien

    ★★★★

    The commercial vessel Nostromo receives a distress call from an unexplored planet, and after searching for survivors, the crew heads home only to realize that a deadly bioform has joined them.
    Superbly directed and highly suspenseful sci-fi thriller, the decrepit spaceship design and especially the truly abhorrent creation of the alien still influence sci-fi and horror movies to this day.

  • Blade Runner

    Blade Runner

    ★★★★

    A blade runner must pursue and try to terminate four replicants who stole a ship in space and have returned to Earth to find their creator.
    Groundbreaking sci-fi thriller in noir style with a coherent bleak vision of the future, perfectly designed, still achieves to amaze even today.
