ASOKA (2000)

Certification12 Our Rating

Emperor Asoka was ruler of Magadha in the 3rd century BC and after waging a savage war on the neighbouring kingdom of Kalinga he finally witnesses the consequences of his actions, a dreadful reality that causes him to renounce his war like ways and dedicate himself to spreading the teachings of Buddha. Asoka is by no means historically accurate but it is a lush and fascinating epic. find out more...

A monumental history of the Cuban Revolution; from the initial meeting in Mexico between Che and Fidel Castro, through the landing by boat of a few desperadoes, the years of the guerrilla campaign, the gradual build-up from a rag-tag band to a fully fledged revolutionary army, the political alliances and decisions to be made, and the eventual victorious battles over the demotivated Batista led government army. find out more...

'City of War' tells the story of Nazi Party member John Rabe now considered a German war hero for organising the protection zone that almost certainly saved the lives of over 200,000 Chinese whilst the Japanese killed a further 300,000 outside in the infamous Nanjing Massacre of 1937.
This workmanlike film is based on Rabe's diaries, but is somewhat loose with the truth and, it's interesting to note, was produced with the co-operation of the Chinese authorities, won lots of awards in Ger find out more...
EL CID (1961)

CertificationPG Our Rating

One of the very finest epics produced, equally impressive in terms of script and spectacle. Heston is aptly heroic as the 11th Century patriot destined to die in the fight to evict the Moors from Spain, Mann's direction is stately and thrilling and Miklos Rosza's superb score perfectly complements the crisp and simple widescreen images. Sobriety and restraint, in fact, are perhaps the keynotes of the film's success, with the result that a potentially risible finale, in which Cid's corpse is born find out more...

1964: Tim Page has been recruited as a rookie photographer to cover the war in Vietnam. Amidst the brutality, horror and cynicism of war-torn Saigon he discovers friendships with his fellow reporters, especially combat photographer Sean Flynn, son of movie star Erroll Flynn. With a bravado that only the young can display, they relish taking the risks that their old and more war-weary colleagues shun, counter pointing this adrenalin rush with the sex, drugs and rock'n'roll that are permanently on find out more...

An authentically bloody chronicle of the last Apache leader as recorded in the memoirs of one of the cavalrymen who hunted him down. The film covers his fight to preserve the lands of his people and the growing admiration and understanding of his white adversaries. It's all enough to make the red earth of the Moab desert curdle with blood and shame. Fine play from Patric, Duvall, Studi and Hackman in this great biopic. find out more...

The somewhat sensationalist title belies what is at heart an earnest attempt to realistically portray the descent of Hitler into madness, paranoia and megalomania. While the recently made ‘Max' focused on the young Hitler from a ‘What Could've Been' angle, ‘Hitler: The Rise of Evil' tries admirably to stick to the facts as it traces his career in politics (as a rising star, darling of both the poor and the powered gentry), to his self-destructive end. While the film portrays a truncated view of find out more...

Tearjerking drama based on the young Ernest Hemingway's real life romance, the inspiration for his classic "A Farewell To Arms". As an 18-year-old soldier in WW1, love is the last thing on his mind, until a near-fatal injury puts his life in the hands of a beautiful, older nurse. Superb performances. find out more...
