AMADEUS (1984)

CertificationPG Our Rating

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 out more...

Christina Ricci turns all sexy and slutty and this little temptress is the devil for embittered bluesman, yep he woke up this morning, Lazarus, who needs to pray ter god as he chains her near naked body to the radiator in order to save her soul. This is a strange mix of steam, religion and human values as individuals work together to help heal each other's damaged psyches.

Larry "Wild Man" Fischer was "discovered" on the streets of Hollywood by Frank Zappa, who was intrigued by Fischer's offer to write and perform original songs for passers-by for a mere ten cents each. After hearing a few dollars' worth, Zappa offered Fischer a recording contract, and in 1968 the album "An Evening With Wild Man Fischer" was released. Sometimes funny, sometimes harrowing, a tortured man constantly at war with his own demons. Though you could argue the film makers may be guilty of find out more...
DIG! (2007)

Certification15 Our Rating

A documentary following the contrasting fortunes of indie darlings The Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Dandy Warhols, both hell-bent on staging a self-proclaimed revolution of the music industry in the mid 1990s. The friendship between respective founders, Anton Newcombe and Courtney Taylor, escalated into bitter rivalry as the Dandy Warhols achieved major international success while the Brian Jonestown Massacre imploded in a haze of drugs, band in-fighting and unchecked egotism. find out more...

Gus Van Sant's latest masterpiece is very much in a similar vein to his previous two films (Elephant and Gerry). Meditative, ambivalent and beautifully shot, Last Days is a loose retelling of the Kurt Cobain suicide. The dialogue is made up of mumbled non sequiturs and directionless enquiries. The cinematography, as in Elephant, is a mixture of pristine framing, expert use of natural light and patient static observation. Though the pace of the movie is arguably too testing for some viewers, the find out more...

Jazz musician Bill Pullman is an already insane guy in a failed marriage; bitter at his wife's infidelity he murders her and is captured and sentenced. Unable to cope with this reality he invents an alter ego, but this alter ego has to cope with his emotions and his life starts to fall apart. A bit like a voyage into Hitchcock's Psycho's head. Probably Lynch's most baffling film up to this point, and well worth watching. Just bear in mind that most people, eg non-Lynch afficinados, will not atte find out more...

70's super groupie Cynthia hit on a novel idea, plaster caster the penises of the rock gods (her most famous conquest being Jimi Hendrix) and while a strangely fascinating trawl through Cynthia's memories, her continued predilection is slightly agonising, not helped by the fact she's such a life casualty. Intriguing and bizarre but it's a long journey to reach the over two hours length…Phhhhnaaaa…get it? No?...probably for the best. find out more...
