this week on 100 Films

This week it was time for 100 Films in a Year to review the past month's TV, including the first third of the new Twin Peaks, four new episodes of Doctor Who, and much more...

In regular business, there were 2 brand-new reviews...

New Tale of Zatoichi (1963)
With studio Daiei apparently realising they had a potential long-running series on their hands, blind masseur cum roving wrong-righter Ichi makes his colour debut in this third film. Despite the obvious visual change, New Tale picks up on plot threads from the previous film, concluding a trilogy of sorts that spans the series’ first three instalments.

Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made (2016)
It’s a great tale, but unfortunately it’s told in a really sloppily made documentary. The narrative is a complete jumble — it jumps in and out of stories all over the place, getting distracted by something else before looping back around. Exposition and setup are bungled, leaving the viewer constantly playing catch-up and trying to piece things together.

More next Sunday.
