Inuyashiki
(2018)

Inuyashiki Ichirou is down on his luck. While only 58 years old, his geriatric looks often have him written off as a pathetic old man by the world around him and he's constantly ignored and disrespected by his family despite all that he's done to support them. On top of everything else, his doctor has revealed that he has cancer and it appears that he has little time left in this world. But just when it seems things couldn't get any worse, a blinding light in the night sky strikes the earth where Ichirou stands. He later wakes up to find himself unscathed, but he soon starts to notice that there's something... different about himself. However, it turns out that these strange, new changes are just what Ichirou needs to take a new lease on life and now it seems like there's nothing to stop him from being a hero worthy of the respect that he never had before... unless, that is, there was someone else out there with these same changes...

(2014)

Driving home along a generally unused country road following a speaking engagement, famed mystery novelist Tess Thorne experiences a flat tire on her car. She accepts the help of who she believes is a good Samaritan who stops to help her, but who instead rapes her, leaving her submerged in shallow water in a drainage pipe as dead. She found out that he actually orchestrated her getting the flat tire just moments before the rape. Alive, she, in shock, is able to make her way home, but she does not go to the hospital, dealing with her wounds herself, does not call the police, or tell any of her friends or acquaintances how she sustained her obvious injuries. Once the issue of what happened to her settles into herself, she decides to use her skills as an investigative writer to find out the reason behind what happened - if she was a random or targeted victim - and especially if the latter, how best to use that information to her advantage.

Fear of a Black Hat
(1993)

In the hilarious tradition of This Is Spinal Tap, urban- comedy hit Fear of A Black Hat is a slyly subversive satire that smashes stereotypes as it skewers Gangsta Rap. Chronicling the controversial career of bad boys N.W.H. (Niggaz Wit Hats), this uproarious mockumentary? lampoons all of hardcore rap's hot-button issues, violence, censorship, white rappers, ruthless record industry types, and livin' large while keepin' it real. Through the guerilla lens of writer/director Rusty Cundieff, this underground laugh riot reveals the rise, fall and resurrection of this clueless bunch of would-be rappers Ice Cold, Tone-Def & Tasty Taste as N.W.H. Delivering hysterical music videos along with raw outtakes, Fear of A Black Hat is a cult classic that critic Roger Ebert calls "funny and fresh."

At 23, Laura Guerro and her friend Suzu enter the Miss Baja pageant. Both qualify, and while Laura waits at a nightclub for Suzu to break away so they can go shopping, a heavily-armed drug gang murders drug enforcement officials there. Laura escapes unharmed but can't find Suzu, so the next day she looks for her; her dogged behavior brings her to the cartel's attention, and they force her to assist them as they menace her father and younger brother. Lino, the gang's leader, decides Laura should finish the pageant although her only interest is escape. Every day drags her deeper and corruption is pervasive. What alternative is there to death or prison?

The Witch: Part 1 - The Subversion
(2018)

When Ja-yoon (Kim Da-Mi) escaped from a top secret government facility as an eight-year-old, she left behind a trail of bodies, an ankle-deep river of blood and all of her memories of the life which came before. Ten years later, she’s living as a normal, if unusually gifted teenager in a rural backwater. But when she appears on a televised talent show, it’s not just her perfect pitch which attracts attention. And soon, Ja-yoon finds herself pursued by figures from a past she no longer recalls. This YA spin on a Korean revenge movie suffers from a few pacing issues, and leans a little too heavily on exposition, but the action sequences are as thrilling as they are face-crunchingly visceral. And the deadly charisma of the key performers, notably newcomer Kim Da-mi as the teenage Ja-yoon, should ensure plenty of interest in further chapters in this story.

I've seen it, actually! Or, rather, I've seen the last 2/3 of it because I caught it on TV. Maria Bello is really good in it (as are some other great actresses like Ann Dowd and Olympia Dukakis), but I thought that the movie wallowed a little too much in the crimes. Like, I missed the initial attack, but I saw parts of it in a flashback sequence and then later there were photographs. I did enjoy the 2/3 that I saw, but I'm not at all sad that I missed the first act.

EDIT: Also, as someone who does long drives to avoid flying and someone who has twice had to get into a truck alone with a man I didn't know, this one hit a little close to home.

Whoa.. well this went under the radar :shock:
I wondered if this might actually be a good movie that suffered from neither of its stars having much good-will with audiences these days.

Greta
(2018)

A sweet, naïve young woman trying to make it on her own in New York City, Frances (Chloë Grace Moretz) doesn't think twice about returning the handbag she finds on the subway to its rightful owner. That owner is Greta (Isabelle Huppert), an eccentric French piano teacher with a love for classical music and an aching loneliness. Having recently lost her mother, Frances quickly grows closer to widowed Greta. The two become fast friends - but Greta's maternal charms begin to dissolve and grow increasingly disturbing as Frances discovers that nothing in Greta's life is what it seems
8/10

The Witch: Part 1 - The Subversion
(2018)

When Ja-yoon (Kim Da-Mi) escaped from a top secret government facility as an eight-year-old, she left behind a trail of bodies, an ankle-deep river of blood and all of her memories of the life which came before. Ten years later, she’s living as a normal, if unusually gifted teenager in a rural backwater. But when she appears on a televised talent show, it’s not just her perfect pitch which attracts attention. And soon, Ja-yoon finds herself pursued by figures from a past she no longer recalls. This YA spin on a Korean revenge movie suffers from a few pacing issues, and leans a little too heavily on exposition, but the action sequences are as thrilling as they are face-crunchingly visceral. And the deadly charisma of the key performers, notably newcomer Kim Da-mi as the teenage Ja-yoon, should ensure plenty of interest in further chapters in this story.
9/10

I've been wanting to see it for months but its Belgian release got postponed again and again, and the week it finally came out I couldn't go because I had to study for my exam. When I got time again the week after, it already disappeared from theaters. Never given a chance.
I loved Brawl in Cell Block 99, wasn't so crazy about Bone Tomahawk. I'm curious what my thoughts on this will be when I finally see it.
