1960s; young scouser Jude crosses the Atlantic and meets upper class Lucy in this musical tale of two star-crossed lovers set against the raging waters of the volatile 60s counterculture movement; race riots, Vietnam, civil rights, protest, music, drugs, dance, art, hippies and psychedelia. Over 30 Beatles songs are woven into the plot together with visual allusions to their films and, with cameos from Bono and Eddie Izzard, this weird, loud and colourful montage will either have you breaking ou find out more...
AMANDLA! (2002)

Certification12 Our Rating

Amandla! examines the pivotal role music played in South Africa's successful struggle to abolish Apartheid and in particular how lyrics and song became part of the then political activism within the country. The film also highlights the inspirational fight for freedom, where music created an effective underground form of communication within prison boundaries, providing a means of expression and uniting a nation of oppressed citizens. find out more...

This excellent documentary follows Billy Bragg as he embarks on a mission to put music to a selection of lyrics penned by folk legend, Woody Guthrie. Billy's love of the People's Troubadour is evident as he visits his home town, tracing Woody's life and influences with the help of his daughter, Nora Guthrie. The music (compiled on two albums, 'Mermaid Avenue' Vol.'s 1 and 2) is excellent and is lifted with the collaboration of Wilco. Jeff Tweedy, lead singer with Wilco, seems particularly inspir 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...

Small time gangster's moll Blondie kidnaps a big-wig local politico's junkie wife in order to secure her husband's release from the local mafiosi. Altman's homage to his hometown is a swirl of bourbon soaked atmospherics on the themes of love, crime, race and politics, grafted onto a fine jazz soundtrack. 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...
LOLA (1981)

Certification15 Our Rating

An homage to Josef Von Steinberg's The Blue Angel, Lola is a cabaret singer and prostitute who spots an opportunity to improve her social standing when a straight-laced buildings commissioner falls for her charms. As usual, Fassbinder creates a touchingly humorous portrait of human weakness and strength all painted with a lusiciously garish palette and a heavy dollop of melodramic kitsch. find out more...

Great doco about the early days of NY hip hop and life on the projects. One of the best features of this film is that it examines the political trajectory of Nas' career through his lyrics as well as the environment and familial situation that gave rise to his stardom. Must see for fans of his music. And anyone interested in the political side of rap music.
