6 Days

“A renaissance for global terrorism” is most of the archival newscast quotes used to set the scene within the establishing credits of “6 Days” — a true-existence hostage thriller methodically monitoring the 1980 siege of London’s Iranian Embassy by way of Iranian Arab militants. The unhappy irony, of path, is that few visitors would be capable of identification any precise era from that soundbite, and Toa Fraser’s lean, cleanly assembled dramatization is in its personal manner proof against historic specifics: Shot and styled in modern-day, ticking-clock movement style, it compresses the complex Theatcher-era politics of its fractious standoff right into…

Lemon (2017)

The dictionary definition of "quirky" is "characterised via ordinary or surprising developments." But how is some thing "odd" or "unexpected"? Mid-to low-budget indie films are described as "quirky" so often that the time period has misplaced any particular resonance.

From Noon Till Three

From Noon Till Three is one of the oddest films I have ever seen. It's definitely the weirdest Western I have ever seen, and somehow barely fits the category. It would be like calling Barbarella the strangest sci-fi flick you've ever come across, when really it's not science fiction at all, it's a fantasy/comedy/acid trip that just happens to be set in space. The same goes for this movie, something I had never heard of, accidentally stumbled across, and watched with no forewarning. It's not entirely a Western, it's more a wacky story set during the same time period but…

Brannigan

Skip It Director: Douglas HickoxStarring: John Wayne, Richard Attenborough, Judy GeesonYear: 1975I consider myself a fan of 70s movies, at least for someone who was born a decade later and so never had the opportunity to see them as they were meant to be seen, to love them as they came out instead of twenty years later when I had grown up enough to appreciate them. Not to be too clustering, but 70s films have a certain vibe, a dated atmosphere, a specific style that of course doesn't apply to each one, but that is apparent enough in enough of…

Frantz

DVD Talk Collector Series Director: Fran ois OzonStarring: Paula Beer, Pierre NineyYear: 2016It's amazing how ethnocentric we can become, even those of us who feel we are above such petty distinctions and who would call ourselves completely open-minded. After I watched Frantz and realized that it was perhaps the best film I'd seen all year, I caught myself acting surprised that a few foreign films always make it to the top of my annual list, as if they were a genre all their own and I was paying them far too much attention. I had to take a step back…
