1960s; young scouser Jude crosses the Atlantic and meets upper class Lucy in this musical tale of two star-crossed lovers set against the raging waters of the volatile 60s counterculture movement; race riots, Vietnam, civil rights, protest, music, drugs, dance, art, hippies and psychedelia. Over 30 Beatles songs are woven into the plot together with visual allusions to their films and, with cameos from Bono and Eddie Izzard, this weird, loud and colourful montage will either have you breaking ou find out more...
BAARIA (2009)

Certification15 Our Rating

Giuseppe Tornatore directed this grand-scale portrait of life and love over several decades in the small town in Sicily where he was born. We see a number of important historical events through the eyes of young Peppino, watching the fortunes of his town and his family rise and fall. While open to accusations of nostalgia, superficiality and indulgence the film is something of a feast for the senses.
A rambunctious family saga the kind they don't, and probably shouldn't, make any more. find out more...

A number of unrelated people from different social and ethnic backgrounds are observed in their lives leading up to, and their reactions in the aftermath of, a tragedy, in this case the assassination of Robert Kennedy. Directed by Emilio Estevez with an awesome cast at his disposal, Bobby is a fascinating and intelligent observation of the impact events in history have on the common people who both create it and are influenced by it. An intriguing premise. find out more...

Since 1959 Fidel Castro has been both pariah and paragon, an icon for young 'revolutionaries' and fashion victims, a committed leader of his people, a symbol of evil and distrust to the American government and his legacy has been made as much by myth as by fact. In this documentary politico/filmmaker Oliver Stone chose 95 minutes from 30 hours of footage that he filmed while spending time with Castro. The film opens with a placard stating that any time during the shooting Castro was able to say find out more...

Based on Peter Biskind's revelationary book, Easy Riders Raging Bulls is a gobsmacking and addictive insight into the cocaine fuelled genius of Hollywood's movers, shakers and makers during a period of cinema noted not just for its success but it's willingness to take risks and embrace originality. Though considering the hedonistic behaviour of most involved, it's a miracle they even knew who they were. find out more...

A reverential tribute to the wacko and anarchic master-blaster of Gonzo Journalism; from his early days as investigative reporter and writer of 'Hell's Angels', his drug-fueled 'Fear and Loathing' episodes, the '68 Chicago convention, his bid to become sheriff of Aspen, Colorado, his coverage of the 1972 George McGovern campaign and onto his eventual decline as a writer. A must see for anyone interested in finding out more about this unique character who has so enlivened us with his writings. find out more...
