After discovering the truth about their existence, two clones escape their high-tech facility. Okay near-future (set in 2019) chase thriller that takes a while to get going, but then delivers in the kinetic style typical of its director.
A reporter and two interns investigate a classified advert promising time travel. Lo-fi comedy that doesn’t outstay its welcome. Charming enough, with just a hint of sci-fi, and with fine performances all round.
A religious NYPD detective investigates a series of random killings. Splendid one-of-a-kind SF/horror with a procedural aspect. Impressively shot on the sly on the streets of New York, and with some great ideas, this is one of director Cohen’s best flicks.
1944 France. A US squad behind German lines encounter a supersoldier programme. Well-mounted horror/military action hybrid that doesn’t quite make the most of its well-worn B-movie premise, but is great to look at and has an appealing young cast.
And here’s Lemonsquirtle’s POV.
Reggie, now diagnosed with dementia, tries to tell others about The Tall Man. Episodic fifth and final (?) instalment, which ties up some loose ends. Low production values, poor digital effects, and lack of narrative coherence are offset somewhat by affection for the ageing actors/characters.
Reggie tracks down Mike, after the events of part III. Low-budget series continuation – reliant on re-used footage from earlier instalments – which tries to freshen things up by adding a prequel element, though the mix is pretty much the same as before. Nothing for newbies here.
