SON OF THE WHITE MARE
Fehérlófia
1981, Arbelos Films, 81 min, Dir: Marcell Jankovics

One of the great psychedelic masterpieces of world animation, SON OF THE WHITE MARE is a swirling, color-mad maelstrom of mythic monsters and Scythian heroes, part-Nibelungenlied, part-YELLOW SUBMARINE, lit by jagged bolts of lightning and drenched in rivers of blue, red, gold and green. A massive cosmic oak stands at the gates of the Underworld, holding 77 dragons in its roots; to combat these monsters, a dazzling white mare goddess gives birth to three heroes - Treeshaker and his brothers - who embark on an epic journey to save the universe.


MISS FISHER & THE CRYPT OF TEARS
2020, Variance Films, 101 min, Dir: Tony Tilse

Glamorous lady detective Phryne Fisher (Essie Davis, THE BABADOOK) returns in a cinematic sequel to the wildly popular TV series. In 1929 Jerusalem, Miss Fisher's rescue of a young Bedouin girl leads her on a globe-trotting adventure to uncover priceless treasures, wartime secrets and an ancient tomb bearing a terrible curse, with the help of handsome detective Jack Robinson (Nathan Page).


INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS
2009, Swank, 153 min, Germany/USA, Dir: Quentin Tarantino

This WWII-set box office hit stars Brad Pitt as Lt. Aldo Raine, who leads the Basterds, a paramilitary squad that terrorizes the Nazis with quick strikes in enemy territory. The fighters team up with a French theater owner and devise a plot to kill Hitler at a screening of a new propaganda film. Christoph Waltz earned a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his turn as duplicitous SS officer Hans Landa. “Quentin Tarantino’s INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS is a big, bold, audacious war movie that will annoy some, startle others and demonstrate once again that he’s the real thing, a director of quixotic delights.” – Roger Ebert.
