Cowboys and Indians Film Review
A 2003 film based on true events, "Cowboys and Indians" tells the story of J.J. Harper and his death at the hands of a police officer. A tense drama directed by Norma Bailey that retains its relevance.

Retornos Film Review
A character-based drama in the guise of noir, "Retornos" tells the story of a man haunted by the death of his lover and the disintegration of his family. Starring Xavier Estevez, this debut feature from writer-director Luis Aviles Baquero is an unpretentious gem.

Betrayal is rife in "Gibraltar". Gille Lellouche stars as a morally compromised businessman turned drug informant. Unjustly imprisoned by his own government, "Gibraltar" is based on the true-life story of Marc Fievet.

The Mystery of the Leaping Fish Film Review

Girls of the Sun Film Review
Women's experience of war inspired writer-director Eva Husson's film "Girls of the Sun". Set in Iraq, this unusual drama tells the story of a woman kidnapped by ISIS who then leads a group of female soldiers in the fight against terrorism.

Marlowe Film Review
James Garner stars as private detective Philip Marlowe. Do the female characters fare better in Raymond Chandler's 1949 novel "The Little Sister" or this film adaptation produced in 1969?

Lampedusa Film Review
Although the tidal wave of refugees landing on Lampedusa's shores has receded, the island still witnesses tragedies at sea. The emotional toll exacted on first responders is illustrated in "Lampedusa", a two-part television drama produced in Italy and starring Claudio Amendola.
