  • The Eyes of My Mother

    The Eyes of My Mother

    ★★★

    Features stunning black and white photography, including a handful of truly unforgettable set-ups, but nevertheless manages to struggle to connect from time to time. It's beautiful and dreadful in equal measure, but perhaps not quite fully satisfying in the end.

  • Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia

    ★★★½

    Scuzzy, violent, nihilistic contemporary (to 1974) western with a great antihero turn by Warren Oates. You'll want to take a bath afterwards.

  • The Love Witch

    The Love Witch

    ★★★★

    A pitch perfect emulation of the garish 60s sexploitation film, but imbued with a feminist twist. Though a bit blatant and stretched at times, and clearly requiring the audience's willing participation in order to work, THE LOVE WITCH is a burst of cinematic joy. It certainly doesn't hurt that lead Samantha Robinson is absolutely mesmerizing.

  • Gandhi

    Gandhi

    ★★★★

    Richard Attenborough's workmanlike job behind the camera made me long for a Spielberg-helmed version of this, but Kingsley absolutely owns and its three hour length is never boring, so I have to give credit where credit is due.
