DIAL CODE: SANTA CLAUS
36.15 CODE PÈRE NOËL
1989, AGFA, 87 min, France, Dir: René Manzor

Before HOME ALONE, there was DIAL CODE SANTA CLAUS. Thomas is a typical 1980s kid who loves Rambo, computers, role-playing games and his dog. While Mom's away at the office on Christmas Eve, Thomas and his grandfather are left home alone -- perfect timing for a disgruntled, perverted, bloodthirsty Santa Claus to raid the home down the chimney. But Hell hath no fury like a mulleted 10-year-old with an arsenal of toys!


DESTROYER
2018, Annapurna Pictures, 123 min, Dir: Karyn Kusama

This gripping crime drama follows the moral and existential odyssey of LAPD detective Erin Bell (Nicole Kidman), who as a rookie had been placed undercover with a gang in the California desert, with tragic results. When the leader of that gang re-emerges many years later, Bell must work her way back through the remaining members and into her own history with them to finally reckon with the demons that destroyed her past. “It’s a blunt, deeply cynical look at the idea of justice in a place like Los Angeles. … Daring, yes. But Kusama has something far more important: vision (not to mention a formidable accomplice in Kidman).” - Peter Debruge, Variety.
