A group of visually attractive young things go for a weekend cruise, jump into the sea for a dip, realise they forgot to lower the boarding ladder and quickly begin to demonstrate their less than attractive personalities. Based on a pretty tenuous premise, ie that that many people could be quite so dim, Adrift is still a visually imaginative tense psychological thriller as old friendships rapidly collapse to be replaced by the overwhelming desire for simple survival. find out more...

The greatest movie ever made? A soldier is sent into the Heart of Darkness to retrieve a commander gone AWOL in an insane reality of tin-pot power, paranoia and inglorious killing. The horror of war is stripped naked in a surreal twilight world. The crew nearly went mad making it, Martin Sheen suffered a heart attack and Coppola flew so far beyond budget that the word 'bankrupt' was nearly redefined. See "Heart of Darkness"... find out more...

The cut version of 'Apocalypse Now' stands as one of the most awesome films of modern cinema, anyone who has seen it will inevitably see it again, it's just that now you have find out more...
