Keep or Delete - S01 E10: Poltergeist
A revered piece of 80's Horror or an overrated nostalgia trip? There's no denying that the Poltergeist has cultivated quite a following over the years but is it warranted? In our season finale, we're ending things with a bump in the night as we cross over to the other side in order to examine Poltergeist, the apparently cursed creation from Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper. POLTERGEISTA family's home is haunted by a host of ghosts. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084516/?ref_=nv_sr_1 You can find more episodes of Keep or Delete alongside various other film features and reviews over at Zinemoloko.zinemoloko.com

Keep or Delete - S01 E09: Persona
The Mount Everest of film analysis and a certified masterpiece or a flimsy piece of pretentious, art house trash? Persona has garnered critical acclaim for decades but it has also spawned a number of detractors. In the penultimate episode of our inaugural season, we take a look at Ingmar Bergman's 1966 feature and decide whether Persona is worth preserving or if it's primed for deletion.

Keep or Delete - S01 E08: Cabaret
A beloved movie musical, a star-making vessel for Liza Minelli and the recipient of eight Oscars, but how will Cabaret fair when it finds itself on trial. Combating fascism with razzamatazz and vaudeville fancy, Bob Fosse has created an all singing, all dancing piece of genre cinema but...is Cabaret worth keeping for an eternal encore, or is its deletion long overdue? https://www.zinemoloko.com/ Subscribe via iTunes Cabaret IMDB

Keep or Delete - S01 E07: Solaris
A Soviet export from the early 70's that became a revered piece of science fiction, Solaris is considered by many to be a classic. But with a methodical pace an extended running time and plenty of heavy themes at its core, is it a prime example of intelligent filmmaking or is it a stodgy chunk of pretension? More to the point, should we KEEP Solaris, preserving it in a cinematic cryo chamber for eternity? Or is destined to be fired out the pod doors and deleted in the empty void of space? https://www.zinemoloko.com/ Subscribe via iTunes Solaris IMDB

Keep or Delete - S01 Episode 6: Time Bandits
Time Bandits is a sci-fi swashbuckler that has become somewhat of a cult classic over the years, but what impression will it leave on me. Michael Palin has plenty of credentials and co-writer/director Terry Gilliam has earned a well-deserved reputation too, but how will their skill sets work in the realm of family fantasy adventure?

Keep or Delete - S01 Episode 5: Paris, Texas
Featuring the only lead role for renowned actor Harry Dean Stanton, Paris, Texas is my first experience of Wim Wenders directorial abilities. It's beloved by many and it's following appears to have grown significantly over the years, but how will it fair when put on trial? Is Paris, Texas a poetic ode to lost love and redemption or is it an empty vessel wandering aimlessly in the wilderness?

Keep or Delete - S01 Episode 4: Showgirls
Pulled apart by critics and the general public upon its initial release, "Showgirls" has found somewhat of a second wind over the years. It's amassed a cult following and has been critically reassessed by some, but is Paul Verhoeven's "erotic" drama a misunderstood piece of satirical genius, or is it truly one of the worst films ever made? It's a polarizing piece of cinema with an infamous history but is Showgirls worth keeping or is it ripe for deletion?

Keep or Delete - S01 Episode 3: Suspiria
In the latest edition of Keep of Delete I venture into my first experience of the giallo movement and what better entry point than the highly acclaimed Suspiria. Dario Argento’s cult classic horror flick is very topical right now considering the remake is right around the corner, but how will the original fare in my first time viewing? Is it worthy of the praise heaped upon it or is the product of inflated hype? More importantly is it being archived in our film library, or is Suspiria destined to be deleted from existence?

Keep or Delete - S01 Episode 2: Eyes Wide Shut
Eyes Wide Shut, the final film credited to Stanley Kubrick has a turbulent past. One that has evolved into a legend of folklore and rumour. Considered an "unfinished masterpiece" by some and completely negated by others, it's cultivated a divisive and polarising reputation spanning close to two decades. Watching it for the very first time, I put aside the speculation and the controversy and I look at the film as a body of work. I weigh up what it has to offer and then make the ultimate decision. Should Eyes Wide Shut be preserved for eternity inside the Zinemoloko Film Library, or is it to be permanently banished to the cutting room floor?

Keep or Delete - S01 Episode 1: Cinema Paradiso
The inaugural episode of Keep or Delete puts Giuseppe Tornatore's "Cinema Paradiso" to the test. A semi-autobiographical ode to film and friendship, it's a beloved feature by many...but is it good enough to find a permanent home in the Cinemoloko Film Library?
