The Skeletons of Mrs. Morales: This black comedy classis was adapted from horror master Arthuer Machen's story THE INGLINTON MYSTERY by screenwriter Luis Alcoriza, a frequent collaborator of Luis Bunuel. It tells the tale of quiet taxidermist Pablo Morales(former matinee idol Arturo de Cordova) who suffers the demands of his prudish and hypochandric wife Gloria (Spanish actress Amparo Rivelless). Over the top performances and an ironic, final twist make this film by Rogelio A. Gonzalez a timless satire of weepy melodramas.


Smugglers & A Girl Is a Gun: Films of Luc Moullet: From the mind of Luc Moullet, the unknown genius of the original French New Wave, comes this pair of riotous comedies that capture the movement’s spirit of anarchy. THE SMUGGLERS is the story of two women who smuggle packages and people between two warring nations. A wacky take on the action-adventure tale, the film exploits its low-budget look to offer a digressive and aggressive slapstick comedy. Called "maybe the best film not made by Godard" by Jean-Marie Straub, Europe’s leading intellectual filmmaker, this movie about borders and barriers sports a cameo appearance by Moullet himself, who is listed in the credits as the "pompous fool." Jean-Pierre Leaud, the iconic actor of the French New Wave (the "Antoine Doinel series") stars in this notorious, psychedelic French western. Swinging wildly between offbeat comedy and delirious experimentation, A GIRL IS A GUN finds gunslinger Leaud on the run in the Alps. Never released in France, but distributed outside the country, the film is an unsettling tale of lust and revenge loosely based on old Hollywood westerns.

Being from such widely different backgrounds and having such completely different personalities, it's inevitable that some frictions and shenanigans develop. Especially when the principal leaves the room...


Deer Hunter: Michael, Steven and Nick are young factory workers from Pennsylvania who enlist into the Army to fight in Vietnam.

Michael makes it possible for them to escape, but they soon get separated again.

Far below the surface of the earth, disaster strikes when a rock fall blocks their exit and there's no way out.
