International & Cult Film Reviews

Raquel Welch Furkini

Tired of the stale, CGI infused, constantly rebooted Hollywood drivel? Tired of overpaid actors and actresses complaining about their multi-million dollar salaries? Tired of films constantly pushing a onesided policital and/or social agenda? Welcome to the world of cult cinema, where the budgets were lower than the craft services cost on a film today, where the actors actually worked hard and got paid very little, and where the stories were actually somewhat original. We were Hollywood blockbuster lemmings too once, then we discovered a whole new world of cinema and we haven't looked back since! Join us in cutting the Hollywood cord, and enjoy a world of film that's pre PC and SJW infected. Welcome to our International & Cult Film blog, here we will feature our thoughts on a wide variety of films with a focus on those from the 1950's-1980's from all around the world.

Check out our Actress Spotlight series, which will be a mini series within this blog that will highlight and maybe introduce you to many of the actresses of European cult films. If you're a Barbara Bouchet fan, we have an entire separate blog series dedicated just to her, you can check that out HERE! This blog is just kicking off so check back often and have your eyes opened to a whole new world!

Briganti – Amore e libertà [Bandits - Love & Freedom] (1993) - Bath Time With Monica May 25, 2018 08:00


The age old story of disputed love between the wealthy and the poor.  How do you improve upon a plot that's been recycled since almost the beginning of time?  Well, Monica Bellucci in a corset or giving herself a sponge bath is a start.

Vita coi figli [Life With Children] (1990) - The Birth of Monica Bellucci: Actress April 02, 2018 00:03


Monica Bellucci is breathtaking, and it's interesting to see that her first on screen role essentially was the basis for the proactive roles she'd be known for taking on most of her career.  From day one she decided to follow the motto "if you've got it, flaunt it".
