1990: THE BRONX WARRIORS
1990: I GUERRIERI DEL BRONX
1982, Blue Underground, 89 min, Italy, Dir: Enzo G. Castellari

From the director of the original INGLORIOUS BASTARDS and LAST SHARK and the writer of ZOMBIE comes this explosive Italian post-nuke. Anne, heiress to a weapon's manufacturer, runs away to the war zone of the Bronx to avoid inheriting her questionable family business. She must navigate the wasteland with Trash, a gang leader of the Riders, as rival gangs and bounty hunters seek to capture her. Mixing elements from both ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and THE WARRIORS, BRONX WARRIORS is an action-packed whirlwind of insanity.


STALKER
1979, Janus Films, 163 min, Soviet Union, Dir: Andrei Tarkovsky

A sci-fi tale that unwinds in the environs of the soul takes the form of a nightmarish quest for nothing less than truth itself. A writer (Anatoli Solonitsin) and a scientist (Nikolai Grinko) follow a shaven-headed "stalker" (Aleksandr Kadjanovsky) into forbidden territory, a dangerous wilderness known as the Zone. Tarkovsky forces - or perhaps allows - "reality" to yield up abstract images of startling originality, and his vision of landscape is nothing less than truly mystical; these are places to be found only in humankind's spiritual Baedeker. On top of everything else, Tarkovsky was a director who truly grasped the aesthetic power of color, and this unforgettable pilgrimage is bathed in eerie sepia hues.
