Third Window Films 2019 Preview: Festival Faves and Cult Classics
It's that time of year again! In what has become something of an annual tradition, UK home video distributor Third Window Films has given Screen Anarchy an exclusive first look at their 2019 slate of releases. This coming year will see a mix of contemporary festival favorites as well as 21st century cult classics, and one bizarro masterpiece unearthed from the '80s.
Check out what details we could get for these six releases planned for the upcoming year in roughly chronological order.

One Cut of the Dead
Dir: Ueda Shinichiro
What started as a no-name, no-budget comedy from Japan, One Cut of the Dead turned into the year's biggest surprise hit on the genre festival circuit. After a raucous international premiere at the Udine Far East Film Festival in Italy, the film began collecting what would eventually become a hefty load of prizes from festivals on numerous continents, surprising audiences everywhere it played. I had the distinct pleasure of seeing it with audiences in Korea, Canada, the US, and India, and it delivers no matter what the setting.

- Interview with director Shinichiro Ueda (17min)
