    The Black Room

    ★★★

    In 1982 Cassandra Gava was cast as the witch in Conan and informed a generation what the two snakes were doing, before also letting us know that sexual intercourse can be dangerous. Still my favourite safe sex PSA of the 80s – BUT did she take on a better supernatural sexual predator role the same year? Sounds impossible but let’s do the spoilerish math...

    It is vitally important that I put down my thoughts about The Sword and The Claw...

    Stephen Dobyns at his most Thomas Berger. I have a great fondness for the author, whose Wrestler's Cruel Study is a cornerstone of my ruin.

This Handmade Film sees Frank Whaley's attempts at getting lucky hingeing on burying the dead dog of his potential conquest (Christine Harnos), only to get sidetracked…

    An Accidental Studio

    ★★★½

    A look at the British production company during its ownership by George Harrison (1979 - 1991), going through its catalogue in chronological order. The wealth of talents providing anecdotes are impressive, though during the initial set-up short bytes can be jarring, with An Accidental Studio benefitting greatly when the subjects are focused on specific productions. Having said that, there is some inspired editing towards the end, intercutting pieces on the company's American shoots Powwow Highway and Checking Out.

    There comes a point in every man’s life where he has to decide which Crumb brother he is.
