„God blinked, and the whole world disappeared.“

 

 

 

Es ist an der Zeit unsere kleine cinematografische Reise durch die Jahre und Jahrzehnte fortzusetzen. Auch 1985 hat allerhand zu bieten. Von durch die Zeit reisenden Autos und Kindern, die ein altes Piratenschiff entdecken, von verlassenen Städten und verrückten, turbulenten und auch abenteuerlichen Nächten, von eher unfreiwillig haarigen Teenagern und Wissenschaftlern, die das Geheimnis des Todes entdecken und überwinden, aber auch von skurril-befremdlichen Zukunftsvisionen, polnischen Cops im Drogenkrieg in Chinatown und von einsamen durch den Wilden Westen streifenden, wortkargen und einsilbigen Revolverhelden weiß dieses Jahr zum Teil wundervolle Geschichten zu erzählen. Und den einen oder anderen kleinen Lieblingsfilm von mir hält es auch parat. Verschafft euch also gemeinsam mit mir einen kleinen Überblick über das Filmjahr 1985.
