Machete

2010, USA, 105 min, 35mm
Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis
Starring Danny Trejo, Steven Seagal, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro,
Jeff Fahey, Cheech Marin, Don Johnson, She Whigham, Lindsay Lohan

Based on the enormously popular fake Grindhouse trailer Machete, this action-packed, border-sploitation feature adaptation has steely character actor Danny Trejo returning as the titular knife-wielding ex-Federale. Double-crossed and left for dead, Machete uncovers a conspiracy involving the man who set him up (Jeff Fahey), a powerful Texas politician (Robert De Niro), and his-ex-partner-turned-crime-lord responsible for killing Machete’s family (Steven Seagal). Also featuring Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Cheech Marin, Tom Savini, and Lindsey Lohan, all in colorful, unexpected places, it’s a blood-soaked path to holy vengeance because they just fucked with the wrong Mexican!

“The pace is swift, the tone playful, the screenplay peppered with one-liners. Whether mowed down by gunfire or dispatched by sheaves of blades, the bodies pile up in split-second blasts of carnage.” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times

“Here’s Robert Rodriguez’s Machete to show us how it’s done: with wit, moviemaking skill, and a cast to die for. The movie’s an unexpected end-of-summer tonic: a trash guilty pleasure with a healthy (if really violent) sense of outrage. It’s also Rodriguez’s freest movie yet, and possibly his best.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe

 

Hell Ride

2008, USA, 84 min, 35mm
Written & Directed by Larry Bishop
Starring Larry Bishop, Michael Madsen, Vinnie Jones,
David Carradine, Dennis Hopper, Eric Balfour

Writer/director/star Larry Bishop unleashes Hell Ride, a modern take on the biker films that made him famous in the late ’60s, with a sex and violence filled tale of revenge and war between rival motorcycle gangs. Presented by Quentin Tarantino, this roller coaster of tough guys, cool bikes & rock ‘n roll features all-star cast: Michael Madsen, Vinnie Jones, David Carradine, Dennis Hopper and Eric Balfour.

“This struck me as the right picture for the right time.” – Richard Roeper
