Action/Adventure Rental DVD & VHS

Ray Winstone is lured to New Zealand in this turn-of-the-century chase movie, in which the hulking Brit plays a master South African tracker pursuing the bounty on a 'savage' wrongly accused of murder. Entertaining cannon fodder, this is yet another comic book adaptation of assassins on the lam, but one distinguished by its dynamite cast and palpable sense of fun.

Taken from Dashiell Hammett's novel, this near-perfect comedy-thriller virtually invented the genre, with William Powell and Myrna Loy as partners in detection who intersperse a constant stream of witty banter and early cocktails with trying to solve the mystery of a missing scientist.

Literate and defiantly non-conformist, this snob comedy about an eccentric failure in the arts and his rickshaw driver-cum-biographer succeeds in nailing the idiosyncrasy of its world, with spurts of inspired absurdism. A pair of Russian refugees settle in Auckland to make art and a new home in this eccentric yet accessible 'art comedy' from screenwriter and playwright-turned-director Stephen Sinclair.

Another small scale triumph from dir. Kelly Reichardt, here miniaturizing the experience of early American settlers making the treacherous journey along the Oregon Trail under the guidance of a suspect mountain scout.
