"Angelopoulos’ sixth film, the Golden Lion award winning Alexander The Great (O Megalexandros, 1980), is a perfect case in point. Covering most of the thematic concerns that have occupied Angelopoulos in his forty years of filmmaking, it’s a deeply allusive meditation on myth, history and modernity, political ideology and national identity, and the demands made of its audience extend far beyond its 199 minute running time."

Tobe is a teenage girl in a dysfunctional American family, but one that appears both realistically normal and deeply embedded in suburbia. This is the landscape of Spielberg, but the family, inadequate father, rebellious daughter and quasi-autistic stepson, seems alienated and distant from the world around it. Into this milieu drifts Harlan, a young man whose roots are at least partially fantasised, part cowboy part movie cliche, and whose reality remains unclear. The pair embark on a romance th find out more...

Stunningly filmed in black and white, this classic slice of surrealist cinema is both touching and terrifying.

A darkly disturbing marvellous movie. find out more...
FARGO (1996)

Certification18 Our Rating

An excellent black comedy, handsome thriller and a tall story that keeps you guessing as it unwinds. The genuinely ridiculous plot (a man pays a couple of goons to 'pretend' to kidnap his wife in order to get his paws on his in-laws' 'ransom' money) is completely credible as mighty plans fall apart, spiralling ever more beyond the protagonist's control and leaving us marvelling at the complex stupidity of human nature. A modern classic.
