Buddy Film

Paul Newman and Robert Redford didn't invent the concept of buddies, but in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Sting they embodied the easy rapport that would come to define the buddy film. Sometimes it's two women on the run, a pair of unemployed and often-wasted actors, or two metalheads from Aurora, Illinois, but whatever the configuration, buddies are here to stay.

Pray for Death

Directed by Gordon Hessler

Martial Arts - Rated R - 92 Minutes - 1985

Think of this as a violent, alternate reality version of Minari: this time a Japanese businessman (Sho Kosugi) brings his family to America to start a business that he isn't entirely prepared for, but this businessman is also a retired ninja who is forced to go back to his old ways when local gangsters try to shake down his restaurant and terrorize his family. The bad guy is shockingly devious, the titular line delivery is exceptional, and the final, prolonged fight sequence is a thing of beauty. (Available on YouTube)
