ADRIFT (2006)

Certification15 Our Rating

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...
AGENCY (1980)

Certification15 Our Rating

A mysterious millionaire buys an ad agency and begins to replace its employees with his own people, who don't appear to be advertising types at all.

With the swimming pools, drugs, girls and parties come a bunch of spoilt young brats who seem to take their cues from 'American History X' and black inner city gangster movies. They tattoo themselves, build their bodies, call their girls bitches, sell drugs, fight and use guns. Violence, drugs, language, this movie has them in bucketloads, even sex raises its head. Plotwise; headcase Jake owes lots of drug money to drug lord's son John and John kidnaps Jake's younger brother as a hostage. Kid br find out more...

This fast-paced and beautifully constructed film debut by Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has won critical acclaim all over the world. Weaving the stories of the three victims of a brutal car crash which we witness in the first scene, the film takes you through three very separate worlds that all come together on Mexico's mean streets. From the world of a high-class supermodel to the depths of despair felt by an exiled ex-assassin, Amores Perros is a real achievement in filmmaking. find out more...

In the immediate aftermath of her break up from Maxine, Persian, Bisexual Shirin refuses to accept their relationship is irrecoverable and sets about trying to win her back, with varying degrees of failure, whilst navigating the sociopolitical landscape that her life inhabits. Superbly written and directed by Desiree Akhavan - who also plays Shirin, well, superbly. So, all round superb, in my best Brooklyn accent. (Brett Atkinson)

AUDITION (2000)

A middle-aged widower enters a relationship with a beautiful, docile, doll-like younger girl.

He was 25-years-old, combed his hair like James Dean. She took music lessons and could twirl a baton, she was 15.
