In the build-up to the 1972 US elections, Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward investigated what seemed to be a minor break-in at the Democratic Party headquarters, the editor of the Post was prepared to run with the story and assigned Woodward and Carl Bernstein to it. Their painstaking research found the trail leading higher and higher in the Republican Party and, eventually, into the White House itself and led to the downfall of Nixon. An intelligent and exciting dramatic reconstruction.< find out more...

Possibly Allen's best picture, this won 4 Oscars when it was released and follows the "nervous" romance of Alvy, a comedian, and Annie, a singer. Reputedly based on Allen and Keaton's real-life romantic-comedy it is a satire of social mores from LA to California, and discusses a bit of life, the universe, et al. find out more...

A landmark in the history of the cinema; it was ranked Number 1 in the American Film Institute's 100 greatest films of all time in two polls (1998 and 2007) of more than 1,500 film industry movers and shakers and again by UK directors in a BFI poll.

A landmark in the history of the cinema. The rise and fall of a newspaper tycoon driven by a childhood obssession - Randolph Hurst tried to have it banned! Unique in technique and narrative structure, if you only ever watch one 1940's movie this should be it. This edition is from a restored, remastered and generally souped-up print, with a heap of extras including a documentary on the wunderkind Welles and an analysis by, ahem, Barry Norman. find out more...

A psychotic American commander worried about the subversive effects of water fluoridisation on his "vital bodily fluids" starts off an attack on the Soviet Union. No-one can stop the fighters and no-one, as yet, knows about the failsafe Doomsday Machine. Brilliant black comedy. find out more...

Excellent courtroom comedy starring Joe Pesci as an offbeat just-qualified lawyer, dispatched to the Deep South to defend his young cousin (and friend) from a bogus murder charge. Pesci is superb, as is Marisa Tomei, his nasal New York fiancee who's sassy performance peps up the whole thing and won her an Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. find out more...

A brilliant film the by same director as 'Abigail's Party'. Keith Pratt is the last of the Boy Scouts and with his equally ridiculous wife Candice Marie, they set out on the wilds of a Dorset campsite for their hols, but their health food and knitted way of life don't quite fit in. Darkly funny and eminently quotable, it's a home grown joy of unparalleled quality. find out more...
