He’s been beaten, burned and buried but somehow Bull is back on the streets, searching for the son that was taken from him and dead-set on taking revenge. The director of London to Brighton Paul Andrew Williams delivers a formidably brutal thriller, starring Kill List’s Neil Maskell as former enforcer Bull and David Hayman as a purely evil gangster who, despite his strength, has no idea what’s coming his way. Thanks to Williams’ merciless approach, this familiar-feeling story becomes a relentless nightmare - with a wicked secret at its black heart.

Never Gonna Snow Again

Never Gonna Snow Again
  • 2020
  • Poland / Germany
  • 1h 56min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Małgorzata Szumowska, Michał Englert
  • Cast: Alec Utgoff, Maja Ostaszewska, Agata Kulesza, Weronika Rosati, Katarzyna Figura, Łukasz Simlat, Andrzej Chyra, Krzysztof Czeczot

(Sniegu juz nigdy nie bedzie) Dir Malgorzata Szumowska, Michal Englert/PL DE NL 2020/116 mins/Polish, Russian, French and Vietnamese wEng ST

Alec Utgoff, Maja Ostaszewska, Agata Kulesza

When a mysterious stranger arrives in a gated community on the outskirts of a large Polish city, he is welcomed by the wealthy residents who embrace his talents as a masseur. Though his hands provide healing, his eyes seem to penetrate their very souls, lifting a disquiet in each of their lives. Zhenia (Utgoff) possesses a magical gift and to the residents his Russian accent also sounds like a song from the past, a peaceful melody from their childhood when the world was a safer place. And though his hypnotic techniques bring calm, his background remains a mystery, leaving the residents to wonder what other secrets he holds. Featuring a hypnotic lead performance from Utgoff, this striking new film from Małgorzata Szumowska and her longtime collaborator Michał Englert is wondrous, compelling and uplifting.

The Outsiders

The Outsiders
  • 1982
  • US
  • 1h 31min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Francis Ford Coppola
  • Cast: C Thomas Howell, Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, Diane Lane, Emilio Estevez, Tom Cruise, Leif Garrett

Adaptation of Susie Hinton's million-selling novel of violent conflict between the poor kids (Greasers) and the rich kids (Socs) in a middle-American town. Coppola's earnest, and some might say sentimental, treatment of his material is a return to the sort of movies you thought they didn't make anymore. Wonderful in other words, with a staggering cast of future teen idols.

Seven Samurai

Seven Samurai
  • 1954
  • Japan
  • 3h 20min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Akira Kurosawa
  • Written by: Akira Kurosawa, Shinobu Hashimoto, Hideo Oguni
  • Cast: Takashi Shimura, Toshirō Mifune

A group of timid villagers seek protection against the excesses of a brutal warlord by hiring seven heroic samurai. Seminal Japanese action picture, with a slow-building dignity matching the best of John Ford, and in its stylishly aesthetic handling of screen violence, a profound influence on everyone from Peckinpah to Eastwood. Highly recommended.

Yojimbo

Yojimbo
  • 1961
  • Japan
  • 1h 50min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Akira Kurosawa
  • Cast: Toshiro Mifune, Eijiro Tono, Kamatari Fujiwara.

Mifune's unheroic and lazy samurai sells his services to two rival factions in a small town and then sits back to watch them destroy each other. Darkly comic exercise in Japanese violence which later served as a blueprint for Sergio Leone's For A Few Dollars More.
