In 9th century Japan, a young female assassin is ordered to kill her cousin; the man she was once betrothed to. Visually-stunning wuxia arthouse (martial arthouse?) flick, more interested in painterly scenes than in traditional action thrills; still, a wonderful thing to behold. Recommended.
Two neolithic losers stumble into Old Testament-era civilization. Patchy lowbrow comedy ticking off every genitals-related gag in the scrolls. Some funny moments; the always-welcome Oliver Platt steals the show as a lascivious high priest.
Young Bill Shakespeare tries to make his fortune as a playwright, only to be involved in a Spanish plot. Splendid Pythonesque romp from the Horrible Histories/Yonderland team, ticking off all the Elizabethan gags in the folio.
