In modern-day Tokyo, three homeless people’s lives are changed forever when they discover a baby girl at a garbage dump on Christmas Eve. As the New Year fast approaches, these three forgotten members of society band together to solve the mystery of the abandoned child and the fate of her parents. Along the way, encounters with seemingly unrelated events and people force them to confront their own haunted pasts, as they learn to face their future, together. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Satoshi Kon (Perfect Blue, Paprika).

So a movie like Wild in the Streets, an under-celebrated counter culture gem, made perfect sense. A sort of Idiocracy of the 1960’s, Wild in the Streets tells the story of young rock and roller Max Frost who ends up getting tremendous political power (and the presidency) by demanding that teenagers have the right to vote.

Deep Red, is in many ways, the ultimate distillation of all of giallo’s themes and preoccupations.
Here we get British Jazz musician Marcus (played by Blow Up’s David Hemmings) who, after witnessing a murder, goes on an odyssey to try to solve what appears to be a decades old string of killings tied to Christmas, creepy mansions, mysterious portraits. And of course, there’s a tremendous twist in the third act that upends everything we thought we knew about the movie. . .
