Polanski has a go at the film noir detective thriller, very bleak, very twisted and very menacing it is to. Nicholson plays a private-eye in pre-war LA who is hired to pursue an adultery case, but finds himself embroiled in a complicated murder investigation. find out more...

Brilliantly directed story about a psychotic Hollywood scriptwriter, who is suspected of murder but given a false alibi by his gorgeous neighbour. Bogart's character never lets up and you're never sure if he's guilty or not, and nor is his lovestruck neighbour. As the police close in, it develops into a beautifully tense psychological thriller, did he do it and will the girl stand by her man? Awesome, awesome, awesome!!! find out more...

How to describe 'Inland Empire' to the uninitiated? I think the answer is if you're new to David Lynch films don't start with this one, if you like his stuff you'll love it. Nikki, a leading Hollywood film actress, but living an empty life, starts work on a film that is a remake of an old Polish film that was never completed due to too many on set deaths. People, especially Nikki, get whisked from place to place and time to time in a series of nightmarish non-sequiturs, but at least you know whe find out more...

Jazz musician Bill Pullman is an already insane guy in a failed marriage; bitter at his wife's infidelity he murders her and is captured and sentenced. Unable to cope with this reality he invents an alter ego, but this alter ego has to cope with his emotions and his life starts to fall apart. A bit like a voyage into Hitchcock's Psycho's head. Probably Lynch's most baffling film up to this point, and well worth watching. Just bear in mind that most people, eg non-Lynch afficinados, will not atte find out more...

Excellent courtroom comedy starring Joe Pesci as an offbeat just-qualified lawyer, dispatched to the Deep South to defend his young cousin (and friend) from a bogus murder charge. Pesci is superb, as is Marisa Tomei, his nasal New York fiancee who's sassy performance peps up the whole thing and won her an Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. find out more...

Set in medieval Kyoto, this is an engrossing tale of rape and murder in which contradictory accounts of events are later related from the perspectives of four of those involved. A film which awakened the West to the richness of Japanese cinema. find out more...

A masterful adaptation of David Peace's Ellroy-esque noir trilogy. In '1974', the first chapter, a rookie journalist looks to solve the increasingly vexing case of a serial killer on the loose. A bleak vision of corruption in an emphatically isolated 'North', which raises the game for levels of darkness in TV drama. Andrew Garfield gives a captivating performance as the idealistic journalist in way over his head. Highly recommended. find out more...

The trilogy continues and life in West Riding becomes grimmer. Police corruption interferes with the search for a killer in Yorkshire, England. This time, Paddy Considine's Mancunian copper-with-a-heart-of-gold is brought in to head the inquiry into the unsolved murders. Like the journo before him, he finds resistance wherever he turns. Gripping stuff, based on David Peace's novel "Nineteen Eighty" find out more...

The grisly trilogy concludes in dramatic fashion. Mark Addy gives a sterling performance as a burned-out solicitor whose conscience won't let him give up. The seemingly untouchable, corrupt West Yorkshire police, and the true evil mastermind behind the child abductions and murders of the last 14 years are dragged into the light. Excellent British television. find out more...
