Amitabh Bachchan plays Subeer, a pop singer who dominates India's music scene. He meets Uma, a country girl with a beautiful singing voice, and brings her back to the city to make her a star. However, as Uma's career begins to eclipse Subeer's their relationship becomes increasingly tense. Lots of melodrama, lots of music, nice. find out more...

From the boys that brought us South Park and Team America comes a riotous musical horror that tells the story of Alferd Packer, a prospector who leads a group of fellow 'diggers' into the Rocky Mountains in search of gold only to be accused of murder and cannibalism when the bodies of his companions are discovered partially eaten and mutilated. A tale of comradeship, evil 'trappers' ('Rip their fur, cut their eyes out with my knife. Yo-ho'), Native Indians with a distinctly Japanese flavour and find out more...

In Greendale, Neil Young has made what he calls a "musical novel," telling the story of a three generational family, a cop's inadvertent murder and the sociopolitical evolution of a girl named Sun Green. Not a concert film, Young directs actors on locations on his Northern California home turf to create his Greendale, a rural town microcosm of a world in crisis. He shot the film himself on a German Super 8 underwater camera he loves. Then it was blown up to 35mm, giving the film a rough-hewn, al find out more...

The brilliant transalation from stage to screen of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's rock opera telling the story of Christ's last days, mainly through the eyes of Judas. Using several imaginative images Jewison enlarges the original play without distracting from it. Full of memorable lines including: find out more...

Just simply the best musical ever made. Witty, inventive, brilliant, wonderful and slightly surreal, managing to parody Hollywood without ever quite descending into self-parody.

"Stingray Sam is not a hero / But he does do the things that folks don't do that need to be done / He's got a bravery inside / That will not let him run away..." So goes the theme song to McAbee's bewitching second feature. The film plays like a homage to a 1950's that didn't exist, a riff on all the genres made famous by that decade. Consisting of six 'episodes' (each one narrated by a jubilant David Hyde Pierce) the film follows the eponymous Stingray Sam and his sidekick The Quasar Kid as the find out more...

What to say about The American Astronaut... It's a heady cocktail of DIY science-fiction, lo-fi musical, transatlantic surrealism and good old fashioned nice-guy comedy. The action revolves around Sam Curtis, a mercenary of the Han Solo school, and his increasingly colourful mission. It begins with the delivery of a cat to a small outer-belt asteroid saloon where he meets his former dance partner, and interplanetary fruit thief, the Blueberry Pirate. Peril comes in the form of nemesis Professor find out more...

Miike Takashi returns to mess with your minds! The plot revolves around a family who have set up a guest house in the picturesque countryside in anticipation of an influx of tourists due to a new road under construction. Things soon start to go awry when the first guest dies and the family decide to bury him to keep the prospects of their business alive. The plot, however, soon takes a back seat to the audio-visual assault on the senses that follows. Musical numbers are played out with gusto fro find out more...

We're off to see the wizard - the wonderful wizard of Oz - no not Shane Warne but the theme song from this magical musical. Little Dorothy gets whipped away from the horrors of pre-war rural Kansas along the "Yellow Brick Road" with a gutless lion, a heartless robot and a scarecrow - brilliant. Oh, and look out for the hanging munchkin! find out more...
