It can be a winning strategy, but there’s also something to be said for creating flow without ebb. Because Hollywood cinema is overwhelmingly a cinema of genre films, this means, in effect, working within the genre system. But in 1996, Wes Craven 's Scream, an often tongue-in-cheek affair that toyed with the conventions of slashers, became the biggest hit the genre had ever seen. He wants the life of a well-to-do loafer with an easy job and easier money.

Legendary make-up ace Jack Pierce’s look for the Bride – barbed wire scars, diva make-up, frizzed out hair streaked with lightening bolts – and Lanchester’s jolting movements, eerily innocent, make this an American gothic to remember. There are epic westerns, like Once Upon a Time in the West, and epic biographies, such as The Private Life of Henry VIII. Dick Powell plays John Forbes, a man who seemingly has it all: an adorable son, a loving wife, a nice middle-class house, and a decent job working in insurance.

Company is sequel to Satya directed by Ram Gopal Verma and penned by Jaideep Sahni. But great actors don’t follow rules, they illustrate them. It may be that the film style and story rather than racial congruence of film elements is, at present, more important to Asians than to Whites, Blacks or Latinos. The valley has long been seen as a key to California fortunes: I remember Joel McCrea telling me that on his first day as a movie actor, Will Rogers offered two words of advice: “Buy land.” McCrea bought in the valley and died a rich man, but he was in the second wave of speculation.

So we can’t be sure if his sado-masochistic relationship with Nicki Brand (Blondie singer Harry) is any more real than the vagina-like orifice that has opened up in his stomach. After the re-emergence of the world's first mutant, world-destroyer Apocalypse, the X-Men must unite to defeat his extinction level plan. That said, Gene Roddenberry sold the pilot for Star Trek as ‘wagon train to the stars’ in the 60s, so some people liked the genre mix.

One of the first movies to be shot on HD digital video, the film has an unearthly, real-but-not-real sheen that adds immeasurably to its heart-stopping atmosphere of impending doom. Status: Picked up for distribution by A24, but no release date yet.
