    I would like to recommend two Japanese films I’ve watched this week, Tampopo and The Eel. Both absolutely splendid.

  • Oso Jugo

    Amazing ghost story I discovered on youtube. Stars Denholm Elliot, who played Marcus Brody in Last Crusade. A short film that dares you not to log it on letterboxd.

  • Lori Cerny

    Neopolitan Taffy? This????

  • Mirage and Flake are an absolute joke.

  • devolutionary

    Babette’s Feast (not Japanese) makes for a great double-bill with Tampopo.

  • Dirk Gently

    No Mr Whippy ice-cream worth it’s salt would be served without a Flake or two. A match made in heaven!

  • Thom

    In 1980’s Britain Flake adverts were notorious for their suggestiveness. Suck on this!

  • devolutionary

    This one by Jonathan Glazer is even more infamous. Can’t believe they let him make this one w/ Denis Lavant. See if you can spot the film reference.

    I’m greatly nostalgic for The Night Stalker TV series — it aired when I was too young to watch but I watched it anyway, until the episode with the sewer monster gave my sister nightmares and I was no longer allowed. I watched a couple episodes recently and thought it held up great as a workplace comedy. The horror effects are hilariously chintzy, but I reckon they were working with what they had. Well worth a poke, especially if you have affection for the bygone days of the ink-stained wretches of the newspaper trade.

  • Tommy

    So Frankie’s gonna be away for the Suspiria review after the Argento premie was such a revelation for him? That blows. Hopefully Reed digs it :)

  • Oso Jugo

    He finds the deformed mask in Haunted Honeymoon.

  • Oso Jugo

    Should have watched Sweet Home since it was Halloween. Suw?to h?mu!!! It was free on youtube last I checked.

  • andyluvsfilms

    That’s odd because I watched Babette’s Feast this morning.

    I think Tjahjanto was aiming for an over-the-too, unrealistic, maybe even cartoonish vibe with The Night Comes for Us. I liked both Raid movies more, but he at least seems to have his own thing going on with these actors. His horror movie background is certainly apparent when it comes to the violence in both Night and Headshot. The heroic bloodshed comparisons with Night are apt, but he’s got a ways to go to match the best from that genre. I still hope the film is successful enough for the follow-up because these are the types of action movies I want more of.

  • Nobody

    Cool, I’m going to check that out. Early Kiyoshi Kurosawa, interesting.

  • Oso Jugo

    It’s worth a watch for sure. It’s nonsensical but the atmosphere and special effects are good stuff.
