The best film in the history of comic British cinema. A black tale of sex, adultery, murder and social class told with low key irony. Alec Guinness plays all the leading roles, and the delightfully witty and sardonic script is ideal for him. A landmark of British film. find out more...

The Hoover family are your typical suburban American demographic; dad's a failed inspirational speaker, grandpa's a coke snorting lay-about, the teenage son has embraced Nietzsche and abstains from the spoken word, the brother-in-law has just missed out on a successful suicide and the mumů.well bless her, she really does try. The young daughter, however, is an upbeat bundle of positive energy and when the chance comes to enter the Little Miss Sunshine beauty pageant the whole family embark on a find out more...

Adam Elliot's follow-up to his short opus 'Harvie Krumpet' is a tour-de-force of jaw-dropping animation, heart-wrenching beauty and exquisite sadness. Ostensibly, it's a tale of friendship between two pen pals; Mary, a lonely eight-year-old girl living in the suburbs of Melbourne, and Max, a forty-four-year-old obese man living in New York and suffering from Asperger's syndrome. The depth of pathos in their quasi-romantic exchanges becomes unbearable at times, but the expertly nuanced narrati 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...
NAKED (1993)

Certification18 Our Rating

David Thewlis delivers an incredible performance as the clever and sarcastic Johnny. On the run from reality he turns up at his old girlfriend's house in London, where he proceeds to cause havoc. An inspired mix of script and improvisation with masterful direction, Leigh has taken a dark and inward look at life on Britain's bottom rung. Superb. 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...

"The year is 1936. Orphaned Addie Loggins (Tatum O'Neal, in her film debut) is left in the care of unethical travelling Bible salesman Moses Pray (Ryan O'Neal, Tatum's dad), who may or may not be her father. En route to Addie's relatives, Moses learns that the 9-year-old is quite a handful: she smokes, cusses, and is almost as devious and manipulative as he is. They join forces as swindlers..." - Hal Erickson, Rovi.

Peter Bogdanovich's masterpiece, and shamefully overlooked by many! find out more...

This thoughtful, feelgood fantasy-comedy-drama is Hollywood at its best. Nineties teenager Tobey Maguire and his wild child sister Reese Witherspoon get the culture shock of their lives when they're sucked through the TV into '50's sitcom Pleasantville. Given that in Pleasantville there's never been passion, hatred, war, tears, rain, or even colour, the residents get quite a surprise too when real life starts creeping into their perfect, monochrome world. Thought-provoking and thoroughly enterta find out more...

John Waters slips effortlessly into mainstream cinema, whilst sticking to his trademark irreverent black comedy. Kathleen Turner plays the perfect suburban mom, as American as apple pie and a stickler for family values and good manners. Secretly however, she's a vicious, foul-mouthed psycho killer! Ahead of its time and absolutely genius. find out more...
SNEAKERS (1992)

Certification15 Our Rating

This is a bizarre hybrid, a hi-tech caper movie with lo-tech charm, an action pic with incongruously mellow Californian pacing, a post-Cold War thriller with sassy wit. Redford heads a team of 'sneakers' - freelance tech-heads who execute computer heists to test corporate security systems. It's basically an old folk's operation, with crusty CIA vet Poitier, wild card conspiracy nut Aykroyd, blind genius Strathairn, and McDonnell as a mature femme fatale, only Phoenix guarantees the teen market. find out more...
