A landmark in the history of the cinema; it was ranked Number 1 in the American Film Institute's 100 greatest films of all time in two polls (1998 and 2007) of more than 1,500 film industry movers and shakers and again by UK directors in a BFI poll. "Citizen Kane" narrates the rise and fall of a newspaper tycoon driven by a childhood obssession and is loosely based round the life of William Randolph Hurst, who tried to have it banned, but incorporates elements from the lives of other fat cats il 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...

When young Romany Czech refugee Tasha comes into the life of working-class British housewife Helen they are instantly drawn to one another, but this is a story that weaves three narratives through the same events and while there is connection and understanding there is also hate and suspicion. Gypo is an intimate, impassioned and gritty observation of our ever changing society. find out more...

LA HAINE (1996)

Certification15 Our Rating

Tense and engaging account of contemporary Parisian street life. The recriminations against the notorious police for an injured friend are realised by a documentary style of film making with voyeuristic undertones. Violently realistic and bitter drama. Excellent soundtrack. find out more...

Alan Clarke's work is renowned for it's starkly realistic and often disturbing portrayal of British society, and this is no exception. Tim Roth is outstanding as the snarling anarchistic skinhead car-thief who has no wish to be "saved" by his concerned social worker. Black, bleak and brilliant. find out more...
