Azor

This remarkably assured debut unrolls in late 1970s Argentina, a country in the clutches of a military dictatorship where political violence simmers just below the surface. A Swiss banker (Two Days, One Night‘s Fabrizio Rongione) arrives in Buenos Aires to replace a mysteriously missing colleague and placate their moneyed clientele. Moving through the smoke-filled lounges and […]

Chained for Life

“Building on the promise of his hallucinogenic debut Go Down Death, filmmaker Aaron Schimberg delivers another brilliantly oddball, acerbically funny foray into gonzo surrealism. In a deft tragicomic performance, Jess Weixler (Teeth) plays Mabel, a movie star “slumming it” in an outré art-horror film being shot in a semi-abandoned hospital. Cast opposite her is Rosenthal (Under […]

Gangs of New York

DCP Projection “Here is a historical epic that fudges a few facts, tacks on a pandering love story and trips on its own grand ambitions. And yet here is a film that I give the highest rating. Nuts? I don’t think so. Gangs of New York is something better than perfect: It’s thrillingly alive. Martin Scorsese blows […]

Patrick

DCP projection “If there’s a seminal Ozploitation film, it’s arguably PATRICK.  Together, the all-star Aussie team of schlockmaster producer Antony Ginnane, director Richard Franklin (Psycho II, Road Games) and writer Everett De Roche (Razorback, Long Weekend) shaped a fascinating film that blends Eurosleaze with Hitchcockian suspense.  And it has one of the era’s most memorable […]
