The greatest movie ever made? A soldier is sent into the Heart of Darkness to retrieve a commander gone AWOL in an insane reality of tin-pot power, paranoia and inglorious killing. The horror of war is stripped naked in a surreal twilight world. The crew nearly went mad making it, Martin Sheen suffered a heart attack and Coppola flew so far beyond budget that the word 'bankrupt' was nearly redefined. See "Heart of Darkness"... find our more...

Himir lives at 101 Reykjavik and though fast approaching thirty he has yet to leave the comfort of his mothers home or indeed the ease of social security, but the arrival of his mother's lesbian lover and impending fatherhood are about to put a sizable spanner in his hopes for eternal slackerdom. 101 Reykjavik is a quirky and hipply hedonistic black comedy, driven along by some pretty twisted premises and a central character who is an irredeemable and apathetic git pretty much to the end. find our more...

Powerful, highly acclaimed epic directed by Bertolucci. The story, a grandiose account of the life and times of two separate families in 20th Century Italy, is beautifully complimented by the all-star cast. Depardieu is the salt-of-the earth peasant, whilst De Niro is the....... find our more...

Dud plays a middle-aged composer who gives girls a rating on a scale of ten according to how well they perform for him. Although technically lame (poorly filmed, badly scripted etc) this film hit a chord, with its male target audience, on the matter of male inadequacy and impotence. find our more...

A chance encounter between two students leads to a meeting of like minds and a night of romance wandering the streets of Vienna till dawn. A Franco-American love affair that explores the mental rather than the erotic side of male-female pair-bonding. A must for Hawke or Linklater fans. find our more...

Disney have pulled a master stroke in bringing one of their all-time classics spectacularly to life. The sheer choreography alone is impressive enough, but add Glenn Close as the wicked Cruella De Vil, with her evil eye on the pup's pelts and you have a hilarious, diabolically enjoyable adventure! find our more...

Much imitated but never equalled, this is the definitive space nightmare. The crew of a commercial spacecraft are stalked by a stowaway, mutating monster of veracious appetite. Weaver puts in a splendidly believable performance as the resourceful Ripley. Taut script and awesome special FX. find our more...

A man deformed by a rare illness is taken up and patronised by fashionable London society - another freak show for the elephant man to be exhibited in. David Lynch's highly individual style here perfectly complements the film's material. A dark and brooding, yet sympathetic and sentimental film. find our more...

A Regency romp following the lives of two friends from schoolgirl innocence to bitter betrayal. James Mason is on top form as the blue-blooded bounder who marries Phyllis Calvert, while Margaret Lockwood is hot stuff as the treacherous seductress who sets out to steal her best friend's husband. One of Gainsbrough's best and considered to be rather indecent in its day, it's something of a bawdy bodice-ripper.

Polanski has a go at the film noir detective thriller, very bleak, very twisted and very menacing it is to. Nicholson plays a private-eye in pre-war LA who is hired to pursue an adultery case, but finds himself embroiled in a complicated murder investigation. find our more...

An award winning film full of baroque splendour. The talented composer Antonio Salieri found himself in competition with Mozart, a genius, and he couldn't understand why God favored such a vulgar creature to be his instrument. Salieri turned into a hate-filled monster, whose aim in life became to ruin his colleague, but he emerges as a tragic and sympathetic character. He alone could appreciate the perfection of Mozart's music and, perhaps, he speaks up for all of us whose talents fall short of find our more...

From the director of 'Pusher' this is another darkly violent look at societies less acceptable habits. Full of self loathing Leo increasingly takes his hate out on his wife, the level of brutality escalating to a point of no-return. Leo's slide into the irredeemable unleashes the wrath of his wife's brother, who wants violent revenge.

Slapstick tale of organised crime and family conflict amongst three generations of gypsies, from the former Yugoslavia. Set on the banks of the Danube, the riotous action centres on the old-style octagenarian gangsters, their crooked and conniving offspring, and the youngest generation, whose touching romanticism bring a touch of whimsy to the proceedings. A twisty turny farce with a cruel humour and moments of inspired surrealism. find our more...

The amusing story of a cockney flower girl taken in by an elocution teacher and taught to mix with the aristocracy. An entertaining and escapist little story, with several classic catchy songs, which won Best Picture at 1964 Academy Awards. Shaw detested this lighthearted version of his play "Pygmalion". find our more...
