Harvey begins to write down his disgruntled observations and with the help of equally cantankerous illustrator, Harry Crumb, ‘American Splendor' is born. This movie of the man's life is an inspired mixture of animation, documentary and dramatisation, with Paul Giamatti finally getting a role worth his talent. Funny, sad, sharp and hip find out more...

The discovery of a dead body by four small town Australian males on a camping and fishing expedition, and their failure to abort their trip to report it, provides the catalyst to push the entire community closer to the edge of implosion. The nuclear family, and race relations, seem as dissonant here, if not more so, than anywhere else. Top quality movie making and very thought provoking. find out more...
