Sogo Ishii’s CRAZY THUNDER ROAD Available on Blu-ray from Third Window Films (UK / 21 February)

Sogo Ishii's CRAZY THUNDER ROAD Available on Blu-ray from Third Window Films (UK / 21 February)

Ken, a gang leader dreaming of a quiet life with his girlfriend Noriko, and Jin, Ken’s maverick successor, who isn’t about to let yakuza kingpins tell him what to do or whom to kill. Jin’s violent individualism in a world where even outlaws follow the bosses’ orders references the doomed anti-establishment heroes of Kinji Fukasaku, but Crazy Thunder Road points toward a new style of genre filmmaking-fast-paced, quick-witted and brilliantly stylized.

“Will you go on riding or not?”

Beast Within (aka Hunter’s Moon) (2019, USA / Canada) Danse Macabre DVD Review

Beast Within (aka Hunter's Moon) (2019, USA / Canada) Danse Macabre DVD Review

When will I learn that a great premise doesn’t necessarily mean a film will be great or even good. Just like the enjoyable Werewolves Within, the similarly titled Beast Within is a werewolf whodunit that references the party game. However, that is where the similarities end. The acting in Beast Within is woeful. There is no emotion, no chemistry, and no believability in most of the characters. When the werewolf is finally revealed, that particular character becomes a bit more three-dimensional and believable. I don’t know how much of the film’s issues lie with the bad writing or directing.

“It’s no longer a game.”
