Gone is the grand family pad, gone are the new clothes and, humiliatingly, gone are Anna's beloved religious lessons. In their place is a cramped apartment filled with bearded revolutionaries, demonstrations and refugee nannies with strange cooking habits. But Anna is no wilting flower and before you can regurgitate the fir find out more...

Bobby Sands was the IRA member who led the 1981 Long Kesh hunger strike as part of a campaign to achieve the status of political prisoners and not that of criminals. The first section of film deals with daily prison life, the 'dirty' protest and the violence, the second is a long discussion on the meaning of life with a sympathetic priest and the third depicts the last weeks and death of a man voluntarily dying of starvation. find out more...

Valerie Solanas was a nutter cum radical feminist who tried to hang around with the Warhol crowd, became the sole member of SCUM, the Society for Cutting Up Men, and became famous for more than 15 minutes for firing the bullets from which Andy Warhol never recovered. Right on sister, that's art. This is a fab little pic from the Killer Films troupe. Laced with psychedelia, trimmed with gritty realism, first person narratives and cameos, this is a must watch if only for Taylor's brilliant protray find out more...

France's greatest screen actor is a no-good petty thief who meets a middle class yuppie at a disco. He excites her so much that she abandons her steady relationship with her boss and moves in with him.
