Murder, magic and South African politics mix in a nightmarish world of mysticism and ritual slaughter. Drawn to the drought-ridden town of Bethany by the smell of death, shape-shifting 'Hitcher with No Name' (Burke) kills and dismembers a lonely young woman who picks him up. While the hitcher feeds off the despair of others, including fugitive wife Field, local policeman Mokae enlists the help of a half-mad, half-blind cinema projectionist in his search for a suspected serial killer. The non-lin find out more...

May, hounded by cowboy drifter and half-brother Eddie, tries to hide from him in a seedy out-of-the-way neon-lit New Mexican motel, but he finds her. The film explores the history of their relationship, mainly from their childhoods, that has led them to this point. It's very easy to feel sympathy for the characters and to understand that their complex and passionate dysfunctional relationship is a result of past events out of their control. We mainly watch them fight, make up, fight, make up and find out more...

A truly epic epic and winner of 7 Academy Awards. Lawrence serves British colonial interests during the First World War by uniting the Arabs against the fast collapsing Ottoman Empire. Stupendous cinemascope drama with a cast of thousands and some of cinema's most famous shots; Sheik Ali's emergence from the desert haze and the storming of Aquaba for example. This is the director's cut, a more coherent version than the original cinema release. find out more...

The last of the V8 interceptors takes to the road for the first time. Urban society is in terminal decay and the roads have become an arena for a strange death game between nomadic bikers and young cops in souped up pursuit cars. Less futuristic than the sequels but disturbingly bleak and violent. find out more...

When a group of disparate characters crash in the merciless desert of the Sahara, it would seem their fate is sealed, but not all of them are so willing to offer up their life to the sands, and so begins a race against time to create from the wreckage a means of escape. Flight of The Phoenix is a classic example of the "they don't make them like that anymore", part boys own adventure, part astute study of human nature in the face of adversity, a gripping story intelligently adapted from Elleston find out more...

The death of a fellow guest in a hotel deep in the Sahara allows a world weary journalist, Nicholson, to switch identity. Gradually as he follows the trail of his new personality he discovers that the guy was no ordinary businessman but an international arms dealer. The movie, though, is less about plot than a haunting languid atmosphere which moves from the desert to London, Munich, Barcelona and the Catalan countryside. The best of Antonioni's three English-language pictures; this, Blow-Up find out more...

Informing Charley that he must kill his older brother, Arthur, in order to avoid the execution of Mikey, Stanley retreats to an old jailhouse and awaits the bloody outcome. Director John Hillcoat's second collaboration with Nick Cave (here contributing the film's screenplay and soundtrack), is a taut and often brutal character study of desperation ami find out more...
