BASQUIAT (1996)

Certification15 Our Rating

Low-key biopic of graffiti vandal turned New York darling Jean-Michel Basquiat. Catapulted to art-world super-stardom after a chance meeting with Andy Warhol, the obscene amounts of money his paintings suddenly command soon sends him down the slippery slope of big-time drug abuse. Enthralling. find out more...

Seven years on it's 1975 and Zac is in thrall to Ziggy Stardust and his cousin's boyfriend, a confusing situation for him, made more complicated by a history of trying to satisfy his d find out more...

HUNGER (2007)

Certification15 Our Rating

Bobby Sands was the IRA member who led the 1981 Long Kesh hunger strike as part of a campaign to achieve the status of political prisoners and not that of criminals. The first section of film deals with daily prison life, the 'dirty' protest and the violence, the second is a long discussion on the meaning of life with a sympathetic priest and the third depicts the last weeks and death of a man voluntarily dying of starvation. find out more...

Alan Clarke's work is renowned for it's starkly realistic and often disturbing portrayal of British society, and this is no exception. Tim Roth is outstanding as the snarling anarchistic skinhead car-thief who has no wish to be "saved" by his concerned social worker. Black, bleak and brilliant. find out more...

Eighteen year old Brian Lackey is missing something, five hours to be precise, five hours from his childhood that he cannot account for and that he has become convinced is the work of aliens. Moving to New York Brian meets a young hustler, depressingly wise beyond his years and though seemingly at complete odds with each other the two form a bond. Together the young lads recognise the need to acknowledge what has happened to them and in each other see the opportunity to lay their demons to rest. find out more...

Another superlative cinematic tour de force from the Coen brothers. A Vietnam Vet stumbles across the bloody remnants of a shoot out, pockets some booty and disappears pursued by Javier Bardem's relentless, dead eyed assassin. An ageing, disillusioned sheriff, the excellent Tommy Lee Jones, whose small town rural values have been eroded by the inexorable rise in brutal drug-crime related violence is the reluctant, but dogged, cop in pursuit of both hitman and thief. What follows is a battle of w find out more...
NO END (1984)

Poland is under martial law, and in 1982 Solidarity is banned. Ulla, a translator working on Orwell, suddenly loses her husband Antek, an attorney; but though dead Antek's ghost continues to observe not only his grieving love but the painful transition of his homeland. One of Keislowski's earlier works, No End is an original and haunting meditation on love and belief deftly combining both affairs of the heart and political drama. find out more...
