So far so familiar, but in the hands of British visionary Donald Cammell (who wrote and co-directed Performance with Nicolas Roeg), the film becomes a dazzling kaleidoscope of images and ideas, spanning everything from Apache folklore, desert landscapes and stylish murder set-pieces that recall Dario Argento to a painfully vivid dissection of the emotional fissures undermining a modern marriage. It s all set to an equally eclectic score co-written by Pink Floyd s Nick Mason.
Described by the distinguished critic David Thomson as "one of the great secret works in cinema", White of the Eye is one of the most bizarre and unforgettable thrillers ever made.
A distinctly Hong Kong creation, City Hunter is a wild mixture of slapstick comedy, kung-fu action, and colorful, over-the-top weirdness as only Jackie Chan and Wong Jing can deliver. The beautiful Joey Wong (A Chinese Ghost Story) is Ryu Saeba's assistant Kaori, and Chingmy Yau (Naked Killer) is Saeko, a to-die-for sexy female action hero in leather hotpants! Handsome popstar Leon Lai shows up as a suave card-throwing gambler, and international martial arts actors Richard Norton and Gary Daniels appear as the primary targets of Jackie Chan's frequent kicks and punches. Creatively choreographed kung-fu and wacky comedy reign supreme in Wong Jing's City Hunter!

This little stunt lands her in court, but since she has no money to pay for the damages she is sentenced to... write down her memoirs! Inspired by classic erotic literature, Senta's writings predominantly feature her past sexual encounters - presented as flashbacks - up to the point which led her into court.
The Innocents, a chilling adaptation of Henry James' novella "The Turn of the Screw," is one of the most frightening films ever made. Set in nineteenth-century England, this gothic ghost story centers around a governess (Deborah Kerr) taking care of two orphans in a foreboding Victorian mansion. As eerie apparitions appear and the children's behavior becomes strange, the governess begins to wonder about the fate of the previous governess and her sadistic lover. Could it be that their restless spirits are conspiring to corrupt the innocence of the children, or is this "haunting" a product of her own fears and imagination?
