I've got super behind on these again and I've been binding a lot before my month's worth of BFI player ran out (although not all these movies were watched through BFI). Following are just the highlights:



The sequel to Yojimbo. Not quite as good but still solid.



This one was great. It inspired Star Wars considerably and even the scene transition style in SW is identical to this movie. 



Entertaining 40's black comedy.



This was a great neo-noir crime movie. Similar in some small respects to the much more recent film Drive, but no actual relation. 



A disturbing movie showing how easily one child's lie can destroy an innocent man's life. 



Probably the best adaptation of MacBeth I've seen.



Mainly watched it for Bergman, but also out of interest in the director's work. One of a few of his films I watched, I enjoyed this one the most.



Great spy thriller with Michael Caine.



Quite entertaining black comedy.



Excellent J-Horror movie.



Very good crime drama.

I've taken a month's worth of Arrow Video's Prime channel now, so expect some obscure giallo, horror and thriller types from me for a while. Tongue

Highlights so far:





Both good giallo films.



The original Japanese version. I'd wanted to see if for a while since the US film has been an old favourite of mine. Turns out it's a very faithful remake of this one so while I enjoyed this greatly I don't think seeing it actually added anything to what the US one offered. I shall watch it's sequels at some point though.



Very entertaining spaghetti western with a very high body count. 

Other movies watched:

The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave (1971)
Texas, Adios (1966)
Vampyres (1974)
The Pyjama Girl Case (1977)

Exceptionally violent and action packed, as we┬┤ve come to expect from a John Wich movie....oh and a fourth movie is definitely in the making with this ending:
