DREAMS (1990)

CertificationPG Our Rating

Octogenarian filmmaker Kurosawa brings his many years of experience to this film - a collection of eight dreams dealing with many aspects of life, and with an optimistic message. After the very Japanese flavour of the first dream what unfolds is an abstract, highly beautiful cinematic masterpiece. 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...

One of the strangest films ever made. A monochrome nightmare that launched David Lynch to stardom; inspired Twin Peaks and was the first step, some might say, on his voyage up his own back passage. Extraordinarily disturbing and fantastic.Why doesn't he make them like this any more? Twisted genius. find out more...

Certification15 Our Rating

Here the male fantasties of 8 1/2 are replaced by female ones and appropriately enough stars Fellini's wife (Masina) who, worrying about her husband's infidelity, consults various mediums and fortune-tellers and begins to blur her vision of fantasy and reality. Fellini's first colour extravaganza. find out more...

The film opens as a young woman sits compliantly while Bu˝uel takes a razor and slices her eye open. What follows is a surrealist exposition. The film focuses on a man's attempt to make love to a woman, who always seems out of reach. He is grabbed by two men and led around the streets, staring into images which become animated. The film has its unpleasant moments; a man executes his young son for a minor offence, a blind man is assaulted crossing a road, but Bunuel's savage humour is always evid find out more...

Resnais's controversial attempt at collaboration with avant garde author Alain Robbe-Grillet. The film sets up a puzzle that is never resolved, a man meets a woman in a rambling hotel and believes he may have had an affair with her the previous year at Marienbad - or did he? Or was it somewhere else? Deliberately scrambling chronology to the point where past, present and future become meaningless, Resnais creates a vaguely unsettling mood by means of stylish composition, long, smooth tracking sh find out more...

Dozing Mastroianni awakes to find himself in an ultrafeminist world (well as far as it can be when directed by an Italian male director), plagued by anti-male rhetoric and the now familiar Fellini carnivalesque paraphenalia. How will our Marcello's ego survive, poor lad... find out more...
