Dollar for the dead (1999)

Critics review :

There is really very little to criticise in this action-packed movie, that`s pure entertainment all the way. The plot may be a little thin, but it is filmed in true Spaghetti western style: the hero remains in the grey area of good and bad and says little, but he knows how to shoot and the action scenes are fast and very `operatic`. `Dollar` is well cast: no one will replace Clint Eastwood as the mysterious cowboy with no name, but the much under-rated Emilio Estevez is an excellent choice. Estevez has the ability to say as much with a look as with words and so few actors nowadays can do this. In the same way as he previously brought Billy the Kid to life, he does a splendid job with the Cowboy. A thoroughly enjoyable movie !

The nice guys (2016)

Reviews : 

'A smashingly disreputable mystery-comedy free-for-all directed with a wink of trashy zest.'

'Quick on its wits and fast with its fists, this is Black firmly back doing what he does best. And nobody out there does it better'

Winter's bone (2010)

Winter's Bone is a 2010 American independent drama film, an adaptation of Daniel Woodrell's 2006 novel of the same name.

With an absent father and a withdrawn and depressed mother, 17 year-old Ree Dolly keeps her family together in a dirt poor rural area. She's taken aback however when the local Sheriff tells her that her father put up their house as collateral for his bail and unless he shows up for his trial in a week's time, they will lose it all. She knows her father is involved in the local drug trade and manufactures crystal meth, but everywhere she goes the message is the same: stay out of it and stop poking your nose in other people's business. She refuses to listen, even after her father's brother, Teardrop, tells her he's probably been killed. She pushes on, putting her own life in danger, for the sake of her family until the truth, or enough of it, is revealed.

Foreign Film 

Bombon (2004) 

With bills to pay and a daughter to support, Juan Villegas (Juan Villegas) is desperately in need of a job. Unfortunately, at age 52, and without any marketable skills, gainful employment seems unlikely. His luck changes when he helps a woman repair her car and she repays his kindness by giving him a pure-bred puppy. Convinced of his future in the competitive dog circuit, Villegas seeks out the help of dog trainer Walter Donado (Walter Donado) and the two take their fortunes on the road.

Guardian review : 

 

can't think about this film without grinning all over my face. It might look at first like a fierce and harsh piece of cinema from the fierce and harsh landscape of Patagonia: a downbeat version of Amores Perros. Actually, it's more like Best in Show - a film of miraculous gentleness and sweet-natured comedy. Director Carlos Sorin has got pure gold from his cast of non-professional humans and one magnificently haughty-looking, patrician canine: an example of the recondite "Dogo Argentino" breed.

 

Juan Villegas plays Juan, an unemployed fiftysomething mechanic who is given a top-breed pooch called Bombón. A dog trainer (Walter Donado) recognises its worth and the two men scent riches in the stud market. But there's an embarrassing problem - Bombón can pick up medals in the show tent, but in the kennel with the ladies, he's a little, erm, diffident ...

 

It's a wonderfully likeable comedy about friendship, middle-age and Latin American machismo. Bombón's difficulties in the bedroom department are addressed with nothing describable as tact. There's something irresistibly poignant about two ageing guys dancing attendance on an aristocratic dog who may validate their lives - and something very funny about the sight of stately Bombón riding in the front passenger seat of Juan's car.

 Cold in July (2014) 

Review :

An excellent thriller. The title of the movie is aptly named, because I often got chills watching the movie despite being in an warm environment. Now this thriller may not be for everyone, but the tension is incredibly high. The story itself may require you to get rid of your disbelief, but if you can do that you'll hardly have any issues with this dark, brooding thriller. 


This film is about a protective father who accidentally shoots a robber in his house. The father, an ex-con, comes into town hell-bent on revenge. As their paths collide, they both realize that this simple robbery is a lot more than that as they come under a flurry of lies and violence. 

Michael C. Hall, known for his eerie portrayal in Dexter, does very well in the lead role. The only thing I can complain about is that atrocious mullet. Sam Shepard brings a menacing performance as thew robber's father. Don Johnson also delivers a fine performance as an old friend of the father who is an private investigator. 

Overall, Cold in July is a menacing thriller, but it happens to be quite entertaining thanks to the performances of the three leads. The film is bloody, violent, and very tense. The story itself may have some issues as some sections could be explained just a tad further. But on the whole, this is a solid indie thriller that is worth watching.

Trainspotting  

Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor), a young man with few prospects and fewer ambitions, lives in economically depressed Edinburgh. Like most of his friends, Renton is a heroin addict who loves the drug's blissful nothingness; financing his habit also provides excitement and challenges that his life otherwise lacks. Renton's two best friends are also junkies: Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), a snappy dresser obsessed with James Bond, and Spud (Ewan Bremner), a guileless nerd who suggests Pee Wee Herman's debauched cousin. Renton and his pals also hang out with Begbie (Robert Carlyle), a borderline psychotic who loathes junkies even though he drinks like a fish. After one too many brushes with the law, Renton kicks heroin and moves to London, where he finds a job, a flat, and something close to peace of mind. However, Sick Boy, Begbie, and Spud all arrive at his doorstep on the trail of a big score, leading Renton back into drugs and crime.
