World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: SCHLOCKALYPSE NOW

As noted elsewhere, and for better or worse, the best science fiction and fantasy films reflect their era and cultural environment. Some observers argue that this dictum applies even more strongly to the - how shall one put it delicately – the more offbeat, financially-compromised examples of the genre. Let the viewer be the judge (while acknowledging that not every filmmaker can be Bergman).
