BDX-USA November Movie Selection

Dear all,

here is the selection of movies of the month. They are on display in the foyer of BDX-USA.





Sherlock Holmes - Game of Shadows by G. Ritchie

There is a new criminal mastermind at large-Professor Moriarty and not only is he Holmes' intellectual equal, but his capacity for evil, coupled with a complete lack of conscience, may actually give him an advantage over the renowned detective.

When the Crown Prince of Austria is found dead, the evidence, as construed by Inspector Lestrade, points to suicide. But Sherlock Holmes deduces that the prince has been the victim of murder-a murder that is only one piece of a larger and much more portentous puzzle, designed by Professor Moriarty.

The cunning Moriarty is always one step ahead of Holmes as he spins a web of death and destruction-all part of a greater plan that, if he succeeds, will change the course of history.








Pulp Fiction by Q. Tarantino

Pulp fiction  means according to Merriam Webster: "a magazine or book printed on cheap paper (such as newsprint) and often dealing with sensational material; also :  sensational or tabloid writing —often used attributively."

In Tarantino's pulp fiction, you'll find an incredible mix of murders, gunfights, drugs, religion, seduction, humor and revange.

A story dealing with two hit men, a boxer on the run, a dangerous big boss, a totally stoned femme fatale and including trivial but key objects such as a mysterious black suitcase, a heirloom watch, a katana and a blood-stained car.

And we won't mention the dialogues and lines...
