  • The Grudge

    The single-word American remake of a scarier Japanese horror film. Tasteful usage of fade to black all through the film softens the blow for the hardest hitting stuff.

  • The Face of an Angel

    Random hodgepodge of stuff about Meredith Kercher, a Briton murdered in Italy. Based on a tabloid writer’s book, so you get what you pay for.

  • Até Que o Porno nos Separe

    A crazy premise leads to a massive tear jerker. Nuts! No cockups here, I was unable to maintain a stiff upper lip.

  • Only God Forgives

    More Refn weirdness, dedicated to Alejandro Jodorowski. Bangkok Dangerous-ly dark.

  • The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

    The beginning of the superhero-fication of Fast and Furious.

  • The Dictator

    Gross out comedy, not very funny. The big palace is just Sevilla’s Grand Square with added Golden domes. This is a Francoist building, fitting.
