11'9"01 (2007)

Certification15 Our Rating

A homage to the memory of events that took place on September 11, 2001 in New York. Eleven Directors from around the world put together a series of shorts each one 11 minutes, nine seconds and one frame in length and all based around the consequences of that fateful day. 11'09"01 is a thought provoking and often moving experience that covers many cultures and provides a refreshingly honest and diverse breadth of opinions. find out more...

At 11:14 the lives of five initially unrelated characters collide with murderous consequences, an unfortunate meeting that unleashes a labyrinth trip for all concerned. 11:14 is a darkly comic and twisted thriller reminiscent of pre- ‘Jackie Brown' Tarantino. find out more...
21 GRAMS (2003)

A tragic accident brings three unlikely people together, all already dealing with a past deeply scarred by their own misdemeanours or the vagaries of fate. Obsession, revenge, loneliness, and redemption are all themes dealt with in Inarritu's English language debut, a remarkably powerful and deeply effecting drama, 21 Grams is a grimly beautiful film, carried along by three spellbinding performances. find out more...

John Nash is a brilliant, though socially awkward, mathematician and with his latest work he has achieved the acclaim that he so needed, but John is also prone to delusional behaviour, and when a mysterious stranger asks him for his help to thwart a conspiracy against the Stars and Stripes, John becomes increasingly obsessive, a state of mind that begins to push away all those he holds dear, even his loving wife. Very loosely adapted from a true story "Beautiful Mind" is the bog standard slickly find out more...

Madonna doesn't try to steal the show and consequently this turns out to be an excellent film. In 1943, with the males away fighting, The All American Girls' Professional Baseball League was formed to keep the National Baseball League running. Hanks is the real star as the cynical manager/coach who learns to love his team. A comic and touching story highlighting many of the contradictions that working women face. High slush factor. find out more...

Some movies just ooze fun and this is surely one of them. Ashton and Amanda shine on as different, yet compatible, goofballs in this gentle and well-written romantic comedy. Meeting accidentally in an airport 7 years ago (accompanied by a timely 90s soundtrack) Emily and Oliver hit it off but part ways. And at the end of each relationship they stumble upon and/or find each other again. It should be cheesier than it is but the chemistry and obvious fun shared by Peet and Kutcher make this film be find out more...

Winner of three British Academy Awards. A satire on post-war Britain as food-rationing gives way to a new materialism. Michael Palin steals a pig destined for the table of the town's top folk. The screenplay is by Alan Bennet and the whole reminiscent of the best of Ealing farce. find out more...

AILEEN (2007)

Certification15 Our Rating

Two disturbing but insightful documentaries of Aileen Wuornos, infamous as America's first female serial killer. The first of Broomfield's films deals with Wuornos while on death row awaiting her execution and paints a sympathetic picture of an undeniably damaged human being. The second film looks into the torturous childhood that created the ‘Monster', and together the two documentaries raise some worrying questions about the validity of the American legal system and its close association wit find out more...
