    Interesting alt-Western with some cat and mouse games between the grungiest, dustiest and scabbiest looking cast to be found in 1970. Some beautiful shots and soundtrack/soundscape moments, while overdoing the pondering moments of malaise a little.

  • Shame



    Has the accoutrements of Aussie genre film but is more a character study and a critique on patriarchy and the male domination of public spaces. I imagine that some of these ideas were probably a bit too sophisticated for an Australian audience, and it’s bleak that 30 years later the boorish, violent and evil assholes and their enablers the film rails against still feel close and common.

    Could watch Ben Kingsley and Ray Winstone yell abusively at each other for about 10 hours

    Out of the Dark


    1980s genre sleaze-and-grease fest with frequent eccentric left terms. Some humorous asides felt like handbrakes, and the poodle woman flesh, neon, mean spirited violence and meandering guitar solo soundtrack was enough to keep me invested without attempting to reach for a guffaw here and there. The paint chip eating second cousin of American gialli.
