Robert Rodriguez needs more time to colour-in all the lips and paedophiles in Sin City
A wide-reaching crime drama from the director and star of intimate relationship study Blue Valentine seems an unusual prospect on paper, but in practice the transition isn’t as big as you might expect.

Notorious for scandalising even the French, Baise-Moi fought extremely hard against the label of ‘pornography’ given to it by the certification board. Boasting “prolonged sex scenes of an extremely explicit nature and scenes of graphic violence” and continued bans in many countries, this low-budget sexploitation is known more for its reputation rather than its content. All controversy aside, Baise-Moi is an midly enjoyable, if uneven, feminist punk fantasy.
Can you believe that there’s only 6 days until Christmas!? Let us commiserate at the implacable march of time by considering our top 8 maids a-milking. There’s a lot of fertile subject matter here, but it’s become a little tribute to some of the most important themes of Christmas – family, togetherness, the sacrifices of a loving mother, baby Jesus and… um… Joe Pesci? Whatever. Milky maids. Let’s do it.
Whaddya mean we’re funny? No, no, whaddya mean we’re funny? Are we here to amuse you!? Well yes we are! It must be yet another of Best For Film’s Favourite Flicks, because we’re about to gush all over Scorsese’s 1990 masterpiece. Jersey Shore, eat your heart out.
Everyone loves a villain – more fun to play, watch and steal quotes from than any floppy-haired namby-pamby good guy, and usually prettier to boot. It’s such a shame they always seem to end up getting shot/stabbed/thrown off buildings/drowned/burnt by hot doorknobs (damn you, Kevin McCallister), so we thought we’d round up some of our favourites for a Who’s Who of all the bad guys that really should have won.
