Cinema Eclectica 35 – Age of Lobsters

This week we invent an entirely new sub-genre of superhero movie. In a typically eccentric Off the Shelf we look at Housebound – the 2014 festival hit from Australia, Korean student drama Bleak Night, the long lost BFI Flipside title Requiem for a Village, and

Cinema Eclectica 34 – Dyer Consequences

On this week’s show we have a good old butcher’s at 2015’s blockbuster season. Off the Shelf features a typically diverse bunch of movies, with Rob covering Rabies – Israel’s first ever horror film, Ryan going bck to high school with Salute! Sun Yat-Sen and

Cinema Eclectica 33 – Apply Some Hardy on that Vitch

This week we discover some peculiar childhood memories. Our Off the Shelf section has an eccentric bunch with Rob covering the Taiwanese film Exit and pronouncing everything wrong, and Ryan enjoying rage-house icon Bronson. Both movies were book-ended by a Graham two-fer – a collection

Cinema Eclectica 29 – Underground, Overground, Xenomorphs Free

  We destroy more childhood favourites this week – you have been warned. Our packed “Off the Shelf” section features the 2009 cult horror The Loved Ones, the Iranian new-wave classic The Apple, and Anand Patwardhan’s gripping nuclear documentary War & Peace. After that we

Cinema Eclectica 26 – Sexy Funny Games with Sad Keanu

This week we’re neck-deep in a crazy heatwave – which makes for a much looser show because of all the melting brains. Our featured movies in our “Off The Shelf” section are Samuel Fuller’s Forty Guns, Frank Borzage’s lost film-noir Moonrise and Eli Roth’s latest
