Gareth’s Picks

Un Flic (1972)

Jean-Pierre Melville final classic crime heist. Cool as cool can be.  Endlessly imitated, never repeated. It stars Catherine Deneuve,  Alain Delon, and … Richard Crenna.  What more could you want?

Available to stream on Kanopy for free




The Colors of the Mountain (2010)

Heartbreaking film from Columbia that shows the effects of the drug trade on a remote village and the young children who just want to play soccer on their field.

Available to stream on Kanopy for free




Craig’s Picks

Halloween Tree (1993)

Sleep In Cinema is for the children. I don’t know, I just love this animated show. It’s written and narrated by Ray Bradbury and stars the voice talents of Leonard Nimoy. It gives historical context to all the witches and jack o lanterns and mummies. It’s like Goonies and Stranger Things with a dying kid. It’s a Halloween tradition

Available to rent on all streaming platforms



Freejack (1992)

Time-traveling bounty hunters find a doomed race-car driver in the past and bring him to 2009 New York, where his mind will be replaced with that of a terminally ill billionaire.

That’s the log line. It’s Emilio Estevez and MICK JAGGER(!). And Anthony Hopkins. And Rene Russo. And Amanda Plummer. It’s like a last gasp of the 1980s in the early 90s. Happy Halloween.

Available to stream on Peacock
