THE TREATMENT
DE BEHANDELING
2014, Be For Films, 125 min, Belgium, Dir: Hans Herbots

In this dark and intense adaptation of British author Mo Hayder’s bestseller, investigator Nick Cafmeyer (Geert Van Rampelberg) works to stop a pedophile he’s convinced was responsible for his brother’s disappearance many years earlier.

BLADE RUNNER
1982, Warner Bros., 117 min, USA, Hong Kong, UK, Dir: Ridley Scott

Director Ridley Scott’s acknowledged masterpiece, BLADE RUNNER is also one of the most influential films of the past 30 years, a dazzling fusion of retro-noir and future paranoia, set in a decaying, rain-drenched Los Angeles dominated by Mayan pyramids of unimaginable wealth. Harrison Ford stars as the government-sanctioned killer who falls in love with gorgeous, enigmatic Sean Young, while trying to eliminate Rutger Hauer and his rogue band of genetically engineered replicants.


HIGH CRIME
LA POLIZIA INCRIMINA LA LEGGE ASSOLVE
1973, Ambassador, 100 min, Italy, Dir: Enzo G. Castellari

Cop Franco Nero, frustrated with superior James Whitmore's slow accumulation of evidence, goes after a drug ring, confronting mob boss Fernando Rey and rich importer Silvano Tranquilli. As Nero steps on more toes, people die, and now his girlfriend and daughter are in harm's way. Unrelenting and unforgiving, one of the best collaborations between Nero and Enzo G. Castellari (director of the original INGLORIOUS BASTARDS).
