Indicator January 2020 Blu-ray Titles

On 27 January, Indicator begins the new year with two offbeat classics of American 60s and 70s cinema and a pair of uncompromising British dramas from the 80s and 90s.

Curtis Harrington’s acclaimed Night Tide (1961); William Richert’s brilliantly off-kilter Winter Kills (1979); Paul Greengrass’ unflinching Resurrected (1989); and last but far from least, Peter Mullan’s jet-black comedy, Orphans (1998).

“Sensual ecstasy becomes supernatural terror!”

The Lighthouse (2019, Canada / USA) London Film Festival 2019 Review

The Lighthouse (2019, Canada / USA) London Film Festival 2019 Review

There can be few things as psychologically damaging as being trapped in solitary confinement with someone you hate. For his follow-up to The Witch, Robert Eggers delivers a grim, hallucinatory story about two men shut up in a lighthouse tower, going slowly mad in their mutual loathing. Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson are Tom Wake and Ephraim Winslow – arriving to work for a month-long shift at a remote, rain-lashed lighthouse, somewhere off the coast of 19th century Maine. Wake is a veteran lighthouse keeper (wickie), as salty a sea dog as one might wish to meet…

“There is enchantment in the light.”

Knives Out (2019) London Film Festival 2019 Review

Knives Out (2019) London Film Festival 2019 Review

I have to admit, straight off the bat, that I’m an absolute sucker for Agatha Christie-type whodunnits, so too is self-confessed fan, writer/director Rian Johnson, as he admitted during his talk at the recent BFI London Film Festival. He certainly demonstrates his love for the genre in his spirited and inventive homage, Knives Out. Johnson knows that half the fun lies in our recognition of the rules of the game, so he immediately provides his audience with a rambling, labyrinthine, old house in the countryside, full of curiosities and knick-knacks, a wealthy patriarch, and a large family with many secrets.

“Everyone has a motive. No one has a clue.”

Murder Made Easy (2017, USA) Review

Murder Made Easy (2017, USA) Review

Take a group of six friends, add five courses of sumptuous food and sprinkle a generous amount of suspicion and motive before garnishing with a generous slice of debauchery and you have Murder Made Easy! As the opening titles roll against a jazz infused score I’m put in mind of both Woody Allen’s Annie Hall and Hitchcock’s suspenseful one-shot masterpiece, Rope. Directed by David Palamoro, Murder Made Easy is also (as the title insinuates) rooted in the playroom drama of Agatha Christie’s great murder mysteries.

“Dinner will be killer.”

The Dollmaker (2017, USA) Review

The Dollmaker (2017, USA) Review

2017 horror short The Dollmaker packs a lot of creepiness into a short runtime. It starts in the opening shot, which depicts a casket containing a child’s corpse. The image lingers uncomfortably long on the screen as we listen to a conversation possibly even more ominous than the visual. A bereaved mother is speaking with a man who requests something the dead child wore, a lock of hair, and one of his prized possessions. In any horror story, nothing good ever comes of messing with a dead person’s stuff.

“Do not spend longer than one turn of the hourglass with him. Ever.”
