THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN
LA CITÉ DES ENFANTS PERDUS
1995, Sony Pictures Classics, 112 min, France/Germany/Spain, Dir: Marc Caro, Jean-Pierre Jeunet

The long-planned second feature from the creative team behind DELICATESSEN is just as bizarre, sinister and wildly imaginative as its predecessor, mixing elements of Dr. Caligari, Victor Hugo and Rube Goldberg into the story of a kind-hearted circus strongman (Ron Perlman) and his coquettish 7-year old side-kick (Judith Vittet), who attempt to stop a wicked scientist (Daniel Emilfork) from stealing the dreams of little children.


SKIN TRADE
2014, Magnet Releasing, 96 min, USA/Thailand, Dir: Ekachai Uekrongtham

When New Jersey detective Nick Cassidy (Dolph Lundgren, who also co-wrote the screenplay) cracks down on human trafficker Viktor Dragovic (Ron Perlman), the ruthless gangster escapes to Bangkok - after killing the policeman’s family. Determined to destroy Dragovic and his entire organization, Cassidy heads for Thailand, where he finds an ally in local cop Tony Vitayakui (Tony Jaa). Michael Jai White and Peter Weller costar in this action-packed thriller.
