Suspiria (2018, dir. Luca Guadagnino)

A dancer joins a troupe that’s a front for a coven. Startling remake of the Argento original that while not having the bravura dream logic of the original is nevertheless an unsettling and well-sustained piece of work. Respectful enough to pay homage, but different enough to be its own beast.

Octopussy (1983, dir. John Glen)

Bond battles a rogue Soviet general intent on starting a nuclear war. Lacking the restraint of predecessor For Your Eyes Only, this is lesser Bond, with an eye as much on laughs as on thrills or plausibility. Louis Jourdan, though, makes for an elegant adversary.

Jason Bourne (2016, dir. Paul Greengrass)

Jason Bourne resurfaces to deal with his past. Fifth in the franchise after the side-step of Legacy finds Bourne on top form; a story-light and linear but propulsive visually-driven action thriller, designed more as a sensory experience than narrative.
