DEATH WISH

Directed by Michael Winner

“We get just about the definitive Bronson; rarely has a leading role contained fewer words or more violence.”
– Roger Ebert

“Transforms New York into a land mine waiting to explode.”
– Foster Hirsch

DRESSED TO KILL 

Directed by Brian De Palma
Starring Angie Dickinson and Michael Caine

(1980) Dis- and un- satisfied housewife Angie Dickinson has rape fantasies in the shower, must deal with a super nerdy son, gets turned down even by shrink Michael Caine, but during a tour-de-force 9-minute dialogue-less scene in a museum, hooks up with a stranger... and then the head-snapping twists start coming. DCP. Approx. 105 min.
2:25, 7:00

“ONE OF THE MOST SHEERLY ENJOYABLE FILMS, this sophisticated horror comedy is permeated with the distilled essence of impure thoughts. De Palma presents extreme fantasies and pulls the audience into them with such an apparent east that the pleasure of the suspense becomes aphrodisiacal.”
– Pauline Kael

“An audacious blend of black humor, blood-red violence and pure cinematic skill.”
– Peter Sobczynski, Balder and Dash

Dressed to Kill is the quintessential New York erotic horror-comedy of the grindhouse heyday; the film’s luxurious, almost eerily plastique elegance just barely disguises its unapologetic presentation of fetish iconography.”
– Slant Magazine
