    ”Do you know anything about......witches?”

    Taking a temporary step away from his more reality based giallo films, Dario Argento here transports us into an enchanted technicolour dream of a gothic fairy-tale as we share a journey into the darkness with dance student Suzy Bannion (Jessica Harper), a coven of witches awaits.
    Full of vivid primary colours and beautiful set designs, Argento composes each frame as though it was a work of art in its own right, opening the film out…

    ”Don’t be fussy, revenge is our priority.”

    In what would be one of the last movies in his output for Shaw Brothers, director Chang Cheh goes for a simple plot and pretty much let's the action speak for itself, showcasing a tale of noble Chinese martial arts versus the shady shenanigans of Ninjitsu as a challenge leads to a massacre and remaining kung-fu student Tian Ho (Ricky Cheng) must retrain with a new band of brothers before going up against…

Things get brutal, complicated and even more personal after he’s hired to rescue the daughter of a politician.

    ”Are you dreaming in their language?”

    Amy Adams superbly runs the gamut of human emotion in her quest to break a language barrier and find answers to questions that could affect the whole of humanity.
    A film who’s image is often slightly out of focus just as the alien language and their intentions are a mystery, with the world impatient for answers can a species with no single leader or language of it’s own come together?
    Director Denis Villeneuve along…
