THE GREAT NORTHFIELD MINNESOTA RAID
1972, Universal, 91 min, USA, Dir: Philip Kaufman

Director Philip Kaufman’s gritty re-examination of the story of the Jesse James-Cole Younger gang and their disastrous assault on the town of Northfield, with Cliff Robertson and Robert Duvall heading an astonishing ensemble cast that includes Luke Askew, R.G. Armstrong, Matt Clark and Elisha Cook. A down-and-dirty Western refreshingly stripped of the usual reality-obscuring gloss.


SUDDEN IMPACT
1983, Warner Bros., 117 min, USA, Dir: Clint Eastwood

A vigilante is targeting male criminals from San Francisco to sleepy (and fictional) San Paulo and shooting them in their manhoods. “Dirty” Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) takes the case. But as he digs deeper, he discovers things aren’t as clear-cut - as the facts unfold, Harry finds himself empathizing with the killer. To further muddy the waters, he meets a local artist named Jennifer who might be the one behind the trigger. Costarring Sondra Locke.


PSYCHO III
1986, Universal, 93 min, USA, Dir: Anthony Perkins

Anthony Perkins directs and stars in this final theatrical installment of the PSYCHO saga. As Norman Bates, he’s still dealing with the fallout from the last group of killings in the form of a nosy journalist and a disgruntled motel employee. On the plus side, he’s fallen in love with a suicidal nun (Diana Scarwid) - but Norman’s overprotective mother never did think much of his taste in women.
