Monty Brogan was a dealer of some repute, but his time is up and in only 24 hours he will be incarcerated at the nation's pleasure for seven long years. With the small amount of time left to him Monty decides to attempt some kind of redemption, a journey that will take in his estranged father, his alienated friends and a little unfinished business. No more entertaining than many of Spike Lee's films (and I like his stuff) this is perhaps one of his most mature pictures, devoid of much of the pr find out more...

"Angelopoulos’ sixth film, the Golden Lion award winning Alexander The Great (O Megalexandros, 1980), is a perfect case in point. Covering most of the thematic concerns that have occupied Angelopoulos in his forty years of filmmaking, it’s a deeply allusive meditation on myth, history and modernity, political ideology and national identity, and the demands made of its audience extend far beyond its 199 minute running time."
