Superb bittersweet 'comedy'.

Derek Jarman faces up to AIDS, the loss of loved ones, the breakdown of the body, blindness and his own approaching fall into the void. The constant blue screen provides a backdrop for Jarman's words, which are delivered by a host of famous voices. His eloquence, and unsentimental account of his own plight are deeply moving. A challenging and abstract film. The dvd contains Glitterbug, a 60 minute collage of Jarman's super 8 footage which he shot between 1970-1986. find out more...

Frank is a New York paramedic working the graveyard shift in Hell's Kitchen. He is increasingly haunted by the carnage he has seen and is vaguely aware in the frazzled reseses of his mind that he is going insane. "Bringing Out The Dead" covers three chaotic nights in Frank's life, as he and three partners tear across the city in a constantly losing battle to save the underbelly of the city's society. This is a pretty good return to form for Scorsese, who drags a fine performance out of Nicholas find out more...
CATCH-22 (1970)

Certification15 Our Rating

Adapted from the classic, absurdist, anti-war novel by Joseph Heller. "Catch-22" is the story of Yossarian, a pilot who trys to opt out of flying bombing missions by being declared insane, the catch being that anyone trying to avoid bombing missions by being insane must be sane. This dark classic catches much of the flavour of the book, the insanity, the corruption and the absurdity of war. Think MASH, but non-linear - flawed but awesome. find out more...

The moody 28-year-old Mifune is the violent gangster whom boozy doctor Shimura diagnoses as suffering from TB ('a hole in the heart,' says the sour 'angel', ruefully). The movie breathes the polluted air of post-war pessimism, dissipation and poetic fatalism, symbolised in the shots of the oily, malaria-ridden swamp of a Tokyo dockside, but it is dramatically qualified by Mifune's suggested redeemability and Shimura's stoical humanism. Fascinating, highly enjoyable and filled with great scenes - find out more...
