7-Day Cinema Diet #18

27 July 2020

Another eclectic mix for the 7 day cinema diet as we delve deep into the libraries of Amazon Prime, Netflix and Mubi to supplement the free offerings from All 4 and BBC iPlayer this week.

It’s a fairly current list this week with many of the films from the past few years including some new releases but we do jump in the time machine to head back for films like Vertigo (1998) and the uniquely bonkers House (1977).

This week’s 7 Day Cinema Diet is not for the film viewer with no stamina. While there is 7 days worth of films here, one of those days is dedicated to Philippino director Lav Diaz, master of the long running time. Lav’s films alone account for over 21 hours of film this week. So cross your legs and get stuck in.
