This weekend (17/08 - 20/08) sees the Noir Film Festival's third year taking place in the picturesque Czech castle Křivoklát. The festival boasts a number of hot names and titles this year, including one of the genre's founding fathers, the one and only Alfred Hitchcock.
Prague will play host for the new Amazon Studios fantasy noir Carnival Row, set to start filming later this year.
Although Netflix has been around for a while, it's still reasonably new in the land of Czechia. Ever see articles recommending new titles that don't seem to exist? Majority of articles that you see online are about U.S. or U.K. releases. The Czech Netflix has never offered a huge selection when compared with the latter, but it's getting better, and I'd actually recommend paying the money and subscribing now. I think it's only going to go up from here. And this weekend, the weather will be sh-t. Totally sh-t. So stay in, order pizza and watch some of these recently added gems.
