RETRO - reviews from our movie & TV vault, with a fresh look at neglected classics and cult favourites

Movies did not begin with Star Wars... Long before digital cameras, before Dolby noise reduction (even before synchronous sound!), before CGI (before desktop computers!) and morphing... even before Panavision, CinemaScope and Technicolor... before the New Wave and cinéma vérité, the studio system... before genre and subgenre, docudrama, rockumentary, auteur theory... before satellite broadcasting, cable TV (even before television!), before SteadiCam, crane and dolly shots (before close-ups!)... before Avid editing, montage, handheld cameras... definitely before the multiplex! - and 101 other things... Yes, even before you and I (or our parents?) were born... there were movies. Now that many of these re-mastered classics, restored silents, and cult masterworks are available on VHS, DVD or blu-ray, we're reviewing them, again.
