Fantastical and original movie set in 19th Century frontier country. Blake (Depp) becomes a wanted man and takes to the hills where he meets "Nobody", an Indian who thinks Depp is the English poet. Both comic and thought-provoking with wonderful visual landscapes and sound music, from cult director Jim Jarmusch. find out more...
EL TOPO (1971)

Certification18 Our Rating

The highly eccentric and totally brilliant Alexandro Jodorowsky doesn't make films like anybody else. Directed, written by and starring the man himself "El Topo" is a violent, surreal, quasi-religious Western, if that makes sense (which like the film it doesn't). AJ plays the nomadic lone gunslinger of the title, mostly shooting people for the first half, before being reincarnated as the comedian-cum-holyman protector of a community of deformed outcasts. No doubt some would attempt to read all s find out more...

A superb historical film which explores the myth and reality of the tough trappers who roamed the unconquered West in the 1850s. Tenderfoot Jeremiah learns to fish, trap beaver, tell one Indian from another and stay alive. And all shot on location in fantastically beautiful desolate Utah snowscapes. find out more...

WALKER (1987)

Certification18 Our Rating

In the mid-C19th William Walker operated out of Latin America as a soldier of fortune, but he was not merely a mercenary for hire, he was also a doctor, a lawyer and, most dangerous of all, an idealist. When Walker invaded Nicaragua, at the behest of robber baron Wanderbilt, he decided against handing the country over, instead declaring himself President, and sighting that America was obligated to "protect our neighbours from oppression". A glorious and bloody re-interpretation of history, ‘Wa find out more...
