FANDO AND LIS
1968, Cannon Film Distributors, 93 min, Dir: Alejandro Jodorowsky

Alejandro Jodorowsky's debut feature is a stylish and playful tale of a doomed young couple. Here the director's usual preoccupations are wed to a conventional love story, and as a result FANDO AND LIS offers a more lighthearted draw than much of his later work. In Spanish with English subtitles.


SANTA SANGRE
1989, Severin Films, 121 min, Italy/Mexico, Dir: Alejandro Jodorowsky

Combining elements at once beautiful, grotesque and erotic, SANTA SANGRE is something akin to Fellini remaking both PSYCHO and NIGHTMARE ALLEY as one single, glorious fever dream of a thriller. If you haven’t seen it, do not miss out!


PRINCESS BRIDE
1987, Century Fox, 98 min, Dir: Rob Reiner

This adaptation of William Goldman’s wonderful, tongue-in-cheek fairy tale stars Cary Elwes as the dashing Westley, who is forced to fight off the villainous Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon) and Count Tyrone (Christopher Guest) to save his beloved princess, Buttercup (Robin Wright). This Cult hit features marvelous sets by Norman Garwood and high-spirited supporting performances by Billy Crystal, Carol Kane, Peter Falk and Andre the Giant.
