The director, Ben Wheatley, has some excellent films on his record. Should be good.

Oh yes, had no idea this was being made but a guy from work ended up seeing it instead of a Kurosawa 4k remaster as there were no tickets left. He said it was a great film if you liked weird films. I think I do :)

https://youtu.be/FG3we6eI3dk - Takashi Miike's Yakuza Apocalypse. Consider me, as always, interested.

Saw Green Room the other day. I loved the director's last movie, Blue Ruin. He really outdid himself for this one. Recommended if you like punk rock, siege movies, gore and Sir Patrick Stewart playing a skinhead bar owner. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8XSARX3DQg (NSFW trailer)

http://www.therantsmacabre.com/main-pag ... green-room - The Rants Macabre reviewed this a wee while ago, been looking for it since then. Excellent to have recommendations seconded.

Agreed on Blue Ruin. I caught Cold in July around the same time, and they both struck me as excellent revenge-centric works.

Time Crimes: The spanish equivalent to Primer. (also a great time travel movie in it's own right, if not darker in theme)

I admire the ambition and structure of Primer, but given the option between the two, I'll watch Time Crimes every time.

Kill Your Friends. Steven Stelfox doesn't have a fucking clue about music, which is no handicap, because he's an A&R man for a record company. A steady diet of drugs keeps him going as he attempts to keep his job, sign the right acts, tell the wrong ones where to go, and perhaps bump off a colleague or two. Perfectly judged mid-90s tunes on the soundtrack, vile humour, and a cut-throat attitude. An adaptation of a book by John Niven, it has a similar feel to the film Filth, adapted from the Irvine Welsh novel. Dark, messy, amoral.

An appreciation of Sammo Hung.

The Bedford Incident. A Cold War job, with an American destroyer captain hunting a Soviet sub, and unable to wind down from the peak he has driven himself and his men to. Watching Widmark chew the scenery is well worth it, but Sidney Poitier is a lovely surprise as a youthful journalist getting under everyone's feet and on the captain's last nerve. Not particularly fantastic cinematographically, barring a couple of scenes, but tightly written and well paced. I was expecting the ex-U-boat captain to be a barely-disguised rabid Nazi, but I enjoyed Eric Portman's quiet, thoughtful performance.
