Unraveled

Unraveled (2012)

Starring: Marc S. Dreier,Gerald L. Shargel,,Ross M. Kramer,Spencer Dreier,Bob Hart

Just days before Bernard Madoff captured headlines as the largest Ponzi schemer in U.S. history, Marc Dreier, a prominent Manhattan attorney, was arrested for orchestrating a massive fraud scheme that netted hundreds of millions of dollars from hedge funds. Brazen forgeries and impersonations branded the white-collar crime spree remarkable. Unraveled is set in the "purgatory" of house arrest -- an upper East Side penthouse -- where the Court has ordered Dreier confined until his sentencing day. -- (C) Official Site

Rebels of the Neon God

Rebels of the Neon God (2015)

Starring: Chao-jung Chen, Chang-bin Jen, Kang-sheng Lee

Tsai Ming-liang emerged on the world cinema scene in 1992 with his groundbreaking first feature, REBELS OF THE NEON GOD. His debut already includes a handful of elements familiar to fans of subsequent work: a deceptively spare style often branded "minimalist"; actor Lee Kang-sheng as the silent and sullen Hsiao-kang; copious amounts of water, whether pouring from the sky or bubbling up from a clogged drain; and enough urban anomie to ensure that even the subtle humor in evidence is tinged with pathos. The loosely structured plot involves Hsiao-kang, a despondent cram school student, who becomes obsessed with young petty thief Ah-tze, after Ah-tze smashes the rearview mirror of a taxi driven by Hsiao-kang's father. Hsiao-kang stalks Ah-tze and his buddy Ah-ping as they hang out in the film's iconic arcade (featuring a telling poster of James Dean on the wall) and other locales around Taipei, and ultimately takes his revenge. REBELS OF THE NEON GOD is a remarkably impressive first film that hints at the promise of its director: a talent confirmed by Tsai's equally stunning second feature, VIVE L'AMOUR (Golden Lion, Venice), and continuing to his most recent film, STRAY DOGS, which ranked high on many "best of" lists last year. Though showing such diverse influences as the French New Wave, Wong Kar-wai's early films-and, yes, REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE-Tsai's film is most remarkable for introducing his startlingly unique vision to world cinema.

Starring: Tony Jaa,Mum Jokmok,RZA,Marrese Crump,Jija Yanin Wismitanan

Boss Suchart is the influential owner of a major elephant camp. When he was murdered in his own home - the killer delivered three fatal blows on his body - all evidence points to KHAM (Tony Jaa), who was present at the crime scene and was seen with the victim the moment before he died. Kham is forced to run as the police launch a pursuit. Meanwhile, the twin nieces of Boss Suchart (Jija Yanin Wismitanan and Teerada Kittisiriprasert) are out for revenge. But luck is on Kham's side when he runs into Sergeant MARK (Mum Jokmok), an Interpol agent sent to Thailand on a secret mission. As Kham is hunted by several parties, he's also desperately searching for KHON, his elephant, whose disappearance is involved with Boss Suchart's death. In another twist, Kham is drawn into an underground fighting ring run by LC (RZA), a crime lord who's obsessed with collecting top-class martial artists from around the world. LC's fighters are branded only by numbers, such as the lethal, beautiful TWENTY (Ratha Pho-ngam) and the diabolical NO.2 (Marrese Crump). These fighters are ordered to defeat and capture Kham for a special mission that LC has in mind. A sequel of the global smash-hit The Protector (Tom Yam Goong), THE PROTECTOR 2 is an extreme fight movie, an endlessly intense, nerve-racking film full of fists, elbows, kicks and daredevil stunt scenes and amazingly choreographed fighting moves that will pump hot blood through the body of all action fans.(C) Magnolia

Playoff

Playoff (2011)

Starring: Danny Huston,Amira Casar,Max Riemelt,Selen Savas,Hanns Zischler

Inspired by the incredible true-life story of Ralph Klein, director Eran Riklis' Playoff stars Danny Huston as an Israeli basketball coach who's hailed as a national hero after leading his country's team to a big win in the European championships, only to be branded a traitor after agreeing to coach the struggling West-German team. Max (Huston) is a winning coach with eyes on the NBA. After leading Maccabi Tel Aviv into European Champions, his future looks bright. Recognizing the potential for success when presented with the opportunity to put his coaching skills to use for the West-German team, Max - a native German, himself -- accepts the offer. Almost immediately, Max's wife and mother have ceased talking to him, and the Israeli population has turned their backs on him. Upon arriving in Frankfurt in 1981, Max is beset by the press. HIs new players, however, prove less than welcoming. Team captain Thomas (Max Riemelt), in particular, views Max's hiring as a political decision made to help whitewash the country's dark past. Meanwhile, as morale amongst the team begins to drop due in part to Max's decree that they communicate in English, the isolated coach pays a visit to the childhood home his family fled in the early 1940s. There, he meets the new occupants, a Turkish mother named Deniz (Amira Casar) and her defiant teenage daughter (Selen Savas), whose absentee father disappeared after failing to join his family in Germany as promised. Sympathetic, Max begins spending more time with Deniz, and hires a private detective to help track down her husband. But his presence in the neighborhood soon begins to stir up gossip that makes Deniz a pariah among her fellow emigres. Later, as the team begins to show promise, Max makes a surprising discovery about his father, and Deniz learns the truth about what became of her missing husband.

I Eat Your Skin

I Eat Your Skin (2011)

Starring: William Joyce,Heather Hewitt,Betty Hyatt Linton,Dan Stapleton,Robert Stanton

Schlock producer Jerry Gross rescued this previously-unreleased 1964 clunker (originally titled Voodoo Blood Bath from utter anonymity, saddling it with a meaningless (but cute) new title for a now-legendary drive-in double bill with I Drink Your Blood. Whereas its companion film has gained a sordid reputation for being one of the first films ever to be branded with an "X" rating by the MPAA solely for graphic violence, this limp zombie nonsense bears no such mark of distinction. The story is set on a lush tropical island where a writer (William Joyce) arrives in search of material on voodoo legends for his latest novel. He eventually stumbles onto the secret laboratory of a mad scientist whose experiments with reversing the aging process have been turning his native subjects into bug-eyed, papier-mache-faced zombies. Despite this daunting side-effect, the doc goes right on with his experiments, zombie numbers keep growing, and the natives are growing seriously restless. So restless, it turns out, that they are prepared to sacrifice the scientist's pretty daughter (Heather Hewitt) in retaliation. Not even silly enough to be amusing, this one is just plain dull.

Shishido is the rival waiting to kill him and a young Meiko Kaji (Lady Snowblood) is the girl caught in the crossfire. Gritty and cynical, Retaliation is a hardboiled precursor to Kinji Fukasaku's revisionist yakuza pictures of the 1970s.
