    Five Minutes to Live

    ★★½

    A guitar playing killer terrorizes a housewife while his partner robs the bank where her husband works.
    Tough low-budget crime drama with wooden dialogue and lots of subpar acting does surprise with the audacity of casting Johnny Cash as a psychopathic killer, his overheated, amateur performance included.

  • Grand Illusion

    Grand Illusion

    ★★★★

    During the First World War, two French soldiers are captured and imprisoned in a German POW camp. Several escape attempts follow until they are sent to a seemingly impenetrable fortress which seems impossible to escape from.
    Paradigmatic war drama, rightfully considered a classic, impeccably directed with a stellar cast.
    On rewatching: great war film, grand performances, a bit overlong, though.

  • Alien

    Alien

    ★★★★

    The commercial vessel Nostromo receives a distress call from an unexplored planet, and after searching for survivors, the crew heads home only to realize that a deadly bioform has joined them.
    Superbly directed and highly suspenseful sci-fi thriller, the decrepit spaceship design and especially the truly abhorrent creation of the alien still influence sci-fi and horror movies to this day.

  • Blade Runner

    Blade Runner

    ★★★★

    A blade runner must pursue and try to terminate four replicants who stole a ship in space and have returned to Earth to find their creator.
    Groundbreaking sci-fi thriller in noir style with a coherent bleak vision of the future, perfectly designed, still achieves to amaze even today.
