Inferno certainly delivers all the death that we could want. Just be careful what you wish for...

The eighties was a difficult time or Alain Resnais, as this new boxset testifies.
By James Benefield
For what it’s worth then, Burning Bright is better than Snakes on a Plane and, with a title that refers to William Blake, at least it doesn’t nail its colours to the wall too early.
By Jonathan Spatz
A brave and committed film about a hard and complex place.
By Tom Seymour
Ozu's measured family drama is a model of restraint and stillness that packs a real emotional punch.
Caked in period quaintness and dripping in the primal perennial of lust, Casanova '70 is a lot of fun.
Uncompromising and difficult viewing at times, El Bola isn't a film you enjoy, but it's hard to ignore.
By Leo Owen
Here, as in Ozu's earlier Late Spring, Hara Setsuko plays an unmarried woman named Noriko, but Early Summer is, in keeping with the shift in seasons, an altogether lighter, brighter affair.
In this domestic drama, a post-war family's unconventional disposition is revisited by the traditional imperative to marry, with bittersweet results. Lives are in flux, even as Ozu's camera remains still.
