Cinema Eclectica 111 – Getting Sent to ELO Rehab

This week starts with a bit of déjà vu as we discover everyone’s favourite sequels in Question of the Week. After that we dive straight in and say hello to some sailors in “Letter to Brezhnev”, then Aidan reviews the Dickens out of Walter Hill’s

Cinema Eclectica 110 – Herbie’s Bananarama

This week we’re a duo for only the second time ever, but one of us struggles to keep his composure in the latest and sleaziest Question Of The Week. Moving on as seamlessly as possible we look at a trio of movies including the dreamlike

Cinema Eclectica 109 – Moon-Faced Super Mario

We span the wheel of directors and out popped William Friedkin, so this week we take a look at the ever-growing cult of 1977’s “Sorcerer” (a.k.a. Wages of Fear). We also discuss one location movies, Fellini’s final hurrah in “The Voice of the Moon”, Elio

Cinema Eclectica 103 – Footloose by the Sea

There are an awful lot of people plying their trade in film land – some of whom are real, and not made up at all. This week we negotiate that minefield with film-noir classic “Mildred Pierce”, Cuban new-wavisms with “Memories of Underdevelopment”, and history picked

Cinema Eclectica 102 – Batsploitation

This week we’ve shrunk to a threesome and decide to offset the cream of the BAFTAs crop with some 1970s exploitation. First it’s the turn of Roger Corman and Vincent Price with “Tower of London” before we transition into a hundred super-colourful costume changes with
