CINEMA CULT – MYSTERIOUS ISLAND
A WORLD BEYOND IMAGINATION! ADVENTURE BEYOND BELIEF!
The fantastic Captain Nemo (here played by Herbert Lom) once again inspires the spirit of adventure in another Jules Verne classic. Captain Cyrus Harding (Michael Craig) leads three Union soldiers in a daring escape from a confederate prison camp in a seized Confederate balloon. A raging storm forces the balloon over the ocean toward a Pacific island on which the group becomes marooned. The shipwrecked women share in the dangerous encounters the castaways have with a host of gigantic beasts (courtesy of Ray Harryhausen’s special effects). Their fight for survival is aided by the mysterious Nemo of the submarine Nautilus, who, in an attempt to increase the world’s food supply, helped create the strange animals. When a volcano erupts and threatens to destroy everyone, can Nemo save them? DURING THE CIVIL WAR A GROUP OF Union soldiers and two Confederates escape the stockade using a hot air balloon and end up on a strange Pacific island.
- DIRECTED BY CY ENDFIELD (ZULU) and starring Michael Craig (Star!), Joan Greenwood (The Man in the White Suit) and Herbert Lom (of Pink Panther fame) as Captain Nemo.
CINEMA CULT – BARFLY
Based on a semiautobiographical short story by poet and screenwriter Charles Bukowski and directed by Barbet Schroeder, BARFLY offers insight into the world of the alcoholic, where all that matters is the next drink. Henry Chinaski (Mickey Rourke) is a talented writer of prolific prose; unfortunately he’s also a skid-row alcoholic with a violent temper. He picks fights nightly with Eddie (Frank Stallone), the bartender at the local watering hole, the Golden Horn, and lives in a seedy tenement, stealing food and trying to scrape together enough money for booze. Fellow alcoholic Willa Wilcox (Faye Dunaway) catches Henry’s eye at the bar one afternoon and although she has a reputation for being unstable, the two embark on a relationship with each other and the bottle. BARFLY IS A 1987 AMERICAN FILM which is a semi-autobiography of poet/author Charles Bukowski during the time he spent drinking heavily in Los Angeles.
