Hi ya, handsome.

This weeks prose will be short and sweet. You can bet on that. Not much action on the shelves. Probably explains the large amount of films over the past two weeks. Here’s lookin’ at you, kid.

New Releases

MV5BNTEzMzAyMjg1N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzYwNjQzMzE@._V1_SY317_CR5,0,214,317_AL_

Eurocrime: Italian Cops and Gangster Films that Ruled the 70’s – As one might surmise by the lengthy title, this is a nifty doc about some great genre films (many of which are available at your local Black Dog!) that came out of Italy in the 1970s. Fun flick!

MV5BNjcwNzMxMDE1Ml5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNTc4NjA2MTE@._V1_SX214_AL_

Pioneer – Norwegian film, from the director of Insomnia, about a guy obsessed with reaching the bottom of the Norwegian sea during Norway’s famous oil boom of the 1980s. You remember that boom, right?

MV5BMjU3NzUyMzY1Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNTI5MTM5MzE@._V1_SX214_AL_

R100 – Crazy Japanese film about an ordinary guy who joins a club. One that is not very ordinary. They seem to specialize in guerilla acts of degradation. Lots of kicking, whipping, slapping, sloshing, spitting and grenades. Let the fun begin!

MV5BMjI5NjE4NTQyMl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMjE4NTgyMjE@._V1_SX214_AL_

Stray Dogs – Tough film about an alcoholic guy and his two kids trying to survive in Taipei. From the director of Goodbye, Dragon Inn and The Hole.

MV5BMTk5NTIxNDk4NV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNTQ1ODU0MjE@._V1_SX214_AL_

Wetlands – Demented sex-comedy from Germany finds a girl recounting her sexual adventures involving vegetables, her attitudes on hygiene, amongst other things, all while she’s being treated for something called an anal fissure. Not too sure I want to know what that even is. (at Commercial, soon to Cambie. Hopefully)
