New York


Manhattan dawn with the electric power partially reestablished; the South Island remains without light.

First Lines: Marcus Tullius Cicero - On the Commonwealth


Without the virtue of patriotism, neither Duelius, Regulus or Metellus had delivered Rome by their courage, from the terror of Carthage - nor had the two Scipios, when the fire of the second Punic War was kindled, quenched it in their blood - nor when it revived in greater force, would Fabius have enervated it - nor would Marcellus have reduced it - nor when it was repulsed from the gates of our own city, would Scipio have confined it within the walls of our enemies.

Paula Bertolini


ph: Juan Mathe

Enduring Love (2004)


Two strangers become dangerously close after witnessing a deadly accident.

A quite construed story is successfully adapted as an intense psychological drama.

Maltin ** 1/2: "Contemporary psychological study of not just love but the fragility of relationships and the world around us; worth checking out."


Sveta Krivonozhko


ph: Alexandra Zakharova

The Lawless Breed (1953)


After being released from prison, ex-gunfighter John Wesley Hardin hopes to have his autobiography published in order to rehabilitate his tarnished reputation.

Lively Western with an unusual plot.

Halliwell (no stars): "Standard Western with the star in an unlikely role."

Maltin ***: "Solid Western drama"




Anna-Maria Nemetz


New Stuff: Godspeed You! Black Emperor


It's been a while since their last album...


Emily Meuleman


Fish Tank (2009)


Everything changes for 15-year-old Mia when her mum brings home a new boyfriend.

Depressing kitchen sink drama with something like a happy open end.

Maltin *** 1/2: "Emotionally raw and gripping"
