Samurai Cop (Shervan, 1989): King's Cross Social Club, 2 Britannia Street, WC1, 7pm
This is the latest Duke Mitchell Film Club night. And here is their introduction:
We’ve brought you some
off-beat themed evenings in the past, but what we’ve got to offer this
time around could quite simply be our most obscure night yet. This time
around we’ll be looking at the works of Iranian film directors working
in Hollywood B-Movies!
Come and join us for simply one of the
most incredible films you’ll ever watch: Samurai Cop (1989), from action
master director Amir Shervan, a man who blazed a trailer of violence
and destruction though LA in the late 80s.
Samurai Cop is simply one amazing
scene after the other and it’s the perfect film to watch with a Duke
audience. You’ll see terrible car chases, awfully staged action
sequences and some simply unwatchable sex scenes, but you’ll love every
second of it. Also he’s not a Samurai, he’s not even a very good cop!
Of course well also have all our special extras for the night, all with
an Iranian theme: Trailer Trash, short films, a quiz, great music and
more. Come and join us as the Duke does Hollywood, Iran Style!

Here is the trailer.
