When a friendly, successful suburban teacher and father (James Mason, in one of his most striking roles) is prescribed cortisone for a painful, possibly fatal, affliction he grows dangerously addicted to the experimental drug. His transition from loving father to homicidal despot is depicted on a scale more akin to operatic tragedy than melodrama and, on top of the inestimable pleasures of Mason's performance, a narrative that explores society's use of drugs provides an unexpectedly prophetic di find out more...

The inspired, quirky, not to say down right weird, comedy drama, that revolves (tenuously) around Joel Fleischman, a born and bred New Yorker who finds himself transported to the remote wilderness of Cicely, Alaska, upon graduating as a doctor, a town populated by the good natured but single mindedly eccentric. Warm hearted, witty and perceptive, Northern Exposure garnered over 30 award nominations during its short run. Well worth a gander if the pleasure has so far eluded you. find out more...

The world as a lunatic asylum. Jack Nicholson plays the anarchist determined to challenge the smug system of authority and obedience that rule the roost.

Les Franken defines ‘non-descript', everything about him is without note, but when he takes part in a clinical trial for a new drug called ‘Special' Les starts to notice super human gifts developing and as an avid reader of comic books decides to re-model himself as a fearless indestructible defender of justice. At times bleakly witty 'Special' is at heart a tale driven by delusion, the emotional collapse of a man who like many of us wishes to be something more than he is. A flawed tale that los find out more...
