    Cats Don't Come When You Call


    A troubled ex-boxer (Shunsuke Kazama) reluctantly takes in two cats and grows very fond of them...
    One of those usual cute Japanese cat movies with an emphasis on drama. So, the cats' character arc is almost as important as that of our protagonist, an ex-boxer who faces a personal crisis after he has to stop his passion because of health issues. Of course there are strong parallels between these arcs as we get ups and downs on both sides.

  • Duel



    On his way to work, David Mann (Dennis Weaver) gets terrorized by a truck driver...
    Spielberg's best movie. A masterclass in creating a tense action-thriller which is one of my most re-watched movies and with the new 4k-release it was time again. The transfer looks good not great and as for the movie itself: I have nothing new to add which I haven't written before.

    9.5/ 10

    Pusher 3


    Things become very stressful for mob boss Milo (Zlatko Buric) as he has to deal with disrespectful business partners, deals going wrong, trying to stay clean of drugs while trying to host his daughter's birthday party...
    PUSHER 3 marks Nicolas Winding Refn's masterpiece. Told in the stretch of only one day/night it strongly recalls Scorsese's AFTER HOURS as Buric's character gets deeper and deeper into trouble having to juggle way too many balls at the same time. As Mikkelsen in…
