The Catacombs | Le Samouraï Jean-Pierre Melville | France | 105 mins | 1967 Series Curated by Thani Friday, Jan 18th 2019. 5pm. Tell nobody what you are doing. Even your loved ones (especially your loved ones) must be kept in the dark. If it comes to a choice between smoking and talking, smoke. Dress well but without ostentation. Wear a raincoat, buttoned and belted, regardless of whether there is rain. Any revolver should be kept, until you need it, in the pocket of the coat. Finally, before you leave home, put your hat on. If you don’t have a hat, you can’t go. - Anthony Lane (on how you should attend Jean-Pierre Melville film screenings) Synopsis: The film begins on a Saturday, the 4th of April. It is 6 pm, Jef Costello leaves home. Alain Delon plays Jef Costello, a contract killer with samurai instincts. After carrying out a hit on a nightclub owner, Jef discovers a witness to the killing. Before he can act, he is arrested in a sweep of suspects. Released after the witness fails to nail him, Jef goes from being the hunter to the hunted. Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, Jean-Pierre Melville's 'Le Samourai' is a masterpiece of cool. The same can be said of all of Melville's films. Post-screening discussion with Thani. About Jean-Pierre Melville: Jean-Pierre Melville is considered the spiritual father of the French New Wave. It's his films, and their fierce independent-filmmaking methods, that inspired the young critics who would go on to herald the Nouvelle Vague.

“Subconscious Cruelty,” directed by Karim Hussain: Duo review with @fulltimehorrorjunkie for a new fav of ours! Do yourself a favor and go read his review! Perhaps one of the most influential and challenging horror films to come out of the late 90s/early 2000s is “Subconscious Cruelty.” A simultaneously nasty and empowering film, Karim Hussain channels the likes of Argento and Lynch to create a tasteful arthouse aesthetic that showcases some of the most bizarre body horror that could stand toe to toe with Cronenberg. Now, if you were to ask me what this film’s plot is about, I would tell you that there are several plot lines, but that they don’t necessarily intersect with one another. Take “Subconscious Cruelty” as an exploration into the most crooked aspects of the human mind, and the idea that the logical left side of our brains should be destroyed in order to let the more uninhibited right side take control. The segments that Hussain concocts to further this overarching theme range from ethereally beautiful to complete sensory overload aided by insane practical effects, be warned: many of these scenes contain extreme content (infanticide, incest, religious desecration, etc). There is even a scene involving Jesus Christ that looks like a collaborative cross between Ken Russell and Ruggero Deodato. Shot in film and presented in a beautifully appropriate aspect ratio of 1:66, each frame is unforgettable. The score, composed by Teruhiko Suzuki, is intense, emotional and touching, at times even making the film feel transcendental. I don’t want to describe too much more because this is one that needs to be seen to believed. It’s an angry progressive screech against fascism, controlling women’s bodies, false devoutness, twisted interpretations of religion, and it’s so incredibly in your face. It’s unsafe in every sense of the word, and a perfect example of how extreme cinema qualifies as art.
