May sun may have it’s hat on, but ARROW will unleash a killer month at the their essential, alternative streaming service. With a superb Margot Robbie crime thriller, rediscovered controversial cult sensation and a yakuza masterwork…

ARROW do love their crime neo-noir and next month they will bring us the dazzling Terminal. A bustling film with an A-list cast who will take is into the dark heart of a sprawling, anonymous city, Terminal follows the twisting tales of two assassins carrying out a sinister mission (Max Irons and Dexter Fletcher), a teacher battling a fatal illness (Simon Pegg), an enigmatic janitor (Mike Myers) and a curious waitress leading a dangerous double life (Margot Robbie). Murderous consequences unravel in the dead of night as their lives all intertwine at the hands of a mysterious criminal mastermind hell-bent on revenge, in this visually ravishing and unmissable treat.

It wouldn’t be a ‘killer month’ without some controversary and May that will come in the shape of French crime film A Woman Kills. Filmed in 1968, Jean-Denis Bonan‘s film hadn’t been seen for 45 years until a new 2K restoration brought this unique and disturbing gem back to life. Now ARROW viewers can finally experience this utterly singular, new wave-influenced serial killer film that presents its narrative in an almost true crime approach.

Also showing in May, the yakuza genre classic, Big Time Gambling Boss, an atmospheric tale of gangland intrigue written by Kazuo Kasahara (Battles Without Honour and Humanity) and starring Tomisaburō Wakayama, (Lone Wolf and Cub, The Bounty Hunter Trilogy) and genre legend Kōji Tsuruta. Taxi Driver writer Paul Schrader called it the richest and most complex film of its type, while novelist Yukio Mishima hailed it as a masterpiece…
