    The Psychic

    ★★★½

    Understated Lucio Fulci giallo (except for dat cliff face face- scraping scene at the beginning) with a nearly animated performance by Jennifer O'Neill who is surrounded by an able Italian cast. The low key, slow burn and non-salacious nature of the film will put off some Fulci fans, but it's a very well executed, classy piece overall.

    Officers

    ★★★½

    An ode to veterans that follows one officer and his family through several Russian conflicts. A well photographed and directed black and white film that's effectively emotionally manipulative. The aging of lead actors Georgiy Yumatov and Alina Pokrovskaya is quite convincing as well both performance-wise and in the make-up effects.

    Perfectly paced, great costumes and awesome atmosphere thanks in large part to the Barry Devorzon synth score. No matter how many times I watch, it never gets old.
