The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari

The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari
  • 1920
  • Germany
  • 90 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Robert Wiene
  • Cast: Werner Krauss, Conrad Veidt, Lil Dagover.

A landmark of expressionist cinema, feasting the eyes with bizarre, angular visuals despite its technical crudity. The acting and directing are superb, and the story of a fairground hypnotist who uses a sleepwalker to carry out murders still retains a unique sense of horror.

Earth to Echo

Earth to Echo
  • 2 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 89 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Dave Green
  • Cast: Teo Halm, Astro, Reese Hartwig

Kids' drama, in which Tuck (Bradley), Alex (Halm) and Munch (Hartwig) find an alien stranded in the desert, and attempt to get him back to his spaceship. An artless and shameless copy of Super 8; those who think they could make a better herky-jerky found-footage movie may well, in this instance, be correct.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

  • US
  • 102 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Robert Rodriguez, Frank Miller
  • Cast: Jessica Alba, Powers Boothe, Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green

Marv (Rourke) teams up with Dwight (Brolin) on a mission to rescue Dwight's former lover Ava (Green) from her sadistic husband. Rodriguez and Miller's follow-up to 2005's Sin City is, like its predecessor, a visual masterpiece but in narrative terms it's a schlocky, sweaty exercise in style over substance.

Chihiro travels through a tunnel into another world, where she happens upon a bathhouse for the spirits. After chowing down greedily on some spiked local produce, Chihiro's parents are transformed into pigs, leaving their suddenly dutiful daughter to seek work in the bathhouse in order to release them. Philosophy, anime and shamanism – this is something really stunning that needs to be seen to be believed.
