I'm in. Not sure how many I'll see, but probably more 1980s films than Russian films.

1. Repo Man (1984) Alex Cox (8/10)

A lot of fun, I feel like I would like this even more on a rewatch, there's a ton of little jokes and it's a hangout film, a genre where a film usually gets even better on repeated viewings.

2. Matinee-1989: 4/10

Not the great John Goodman flick but a pretty bland made for TV Canadian Horror (if you even can call it that) movie.

2. Une Affaire de Femmes 1988

Film based on true story of woman who performed abortions in Nazi occupied France and her fate, good film but not to my taste really.
