Inside this conventionally structured biopic resides an extraordinary story of an extraordinary man. William Wilberforce was the parliamentary spokesman for a group of radicalised young Evangelists (and Quakers), who despised the money politics and corruption of late 18th Century UK politics and who fought for many reformist policies, the most notable of which was the one this film annotates, the abolition of slavery, a process that took years of political skulduggery and the slow passage of find out more...

BAMAKO (2006)

CertificationPG Our Rating

In the shared courtyard of a house in Mali's capital, two interlocking trials take place, one describes the disintegration of a couple's marriage, the other the inept and deceitful policies of the World Bank and the IMF; but as pleas for common sense and decency swirl through the building, the simple necessity of life continues to dominate the communal courtyard. Both a beautifully observed drama and a keenly knowing satire, Bamako is an eminently watchable piece of modern African cinema. find out more...

The first and best of the Italian "Mexi-Westerns", on a par with Leone's and with a haunting soundtrack.

BURMA VJ (2008)

CertificationU Our Rating

'Burma VJ' is an amazing collection of footage shot by Democratic Action for Burma activists as the 2007 popular attempted up-rising against the evil military junta took place and is both about the demonstrations and, more succinctly, about the brave Burman reporters who filmed them and transmitted the footage to the outside world. The resultant edit by Danish film-maker Anders Ostergaard has won more awards than you've had hot pies. Must watch stuff. find out more...

George is a Glaswegian bus-driver, free spirited and pissed off with his job, Carla is an emotionally scarred, impoverished refugee and 2/3rds of this film is an uplifting tale of their romance. The last 1/3rd, in Nicaragua, is where they find their destinies. This is also a savage indictment of US policy. find out more...
