    Clans of Intrigue

    Vintage Yuen Chor. Though maybe one of the Shaw Bros directors who tried out working in the most different genres, he is best known for his particular blend of martial arts and fantasy, focusing more on mood and mystique than action and acrobatics. Clans of Intrigue is a perfect example, making this a prime entry film for people wanting to explore Chor's oeuvre.

    Ivan's Childhood

    An early Tarkovksy that is surprisingly accessible. There are some dreams and flashbacks, other than that this was a pretty straightforward story about a young boy during wartime.

    Madison is stuck in an abusive marriage, until one night a dark figure enters her house and kills her husband. From that moment…

    Prisoners of the Ghostland

    The mere idea of Sion Sono and Nicolas Cage making a film together made many cult fan drool uncontrollably. And sure enough, it did sound like a pretty perfect combination. This could very well become Sono's Sukiyaki Western Django, though I'm sure Sono himself would resent the Miike comparison. Sadly for him, Mike also did it better.

    The premise is pretty simple, which is normal considering this is more or less a Mad Max clone. The governor's daughter has run…
