BRAZIL (1985)

Certification15 Our Rating

A work of genius. A sort of 1984 gone haywire about a humble clerk and his efforts to find the girl of his dreams. The backgrounds and the details are all superb in one of the most immaginative films ever released, although the studio that put up the money wanted a happier ending. A Must see! find out more...

John Boorman's semi-autobiographical story of London during the Blitz, as seen by the nine-year-old son of an ordinary suburban family. Air raid shelters, shrapnel, and GIs "stealing our women"; a clever blend of tragedy and irony make this a superb film, head and shoulders above average. find out more...

The best film in the history of comic British cinema. A black tale of sex, adultery, murder and social class told with low key irony. Alec Guinness plays all the leading roles, and the delightfully witty and sardonic script is ideal for him. A landmark of British film. find out more...

A truly epic epic and winner of 7 Academy Awards. Lawrence serves British colonial interests during the First World War by uniting the Arabs against the fast collapsing Ottoman Empire. Stupendous cinemascope drama with a cast of thousands and some of cinema's most famous shots; Sheik Ali's emergence from the desert haze and the storming of Aquaba for example. This is the director's cut, a more coherent version than the original cinema release. find out more...

A slick Dallas oil man sends his agent to a Scottish village to buy it and build a refinery there. But he falls in-love with both place and people, forcing him to question the market driven city lifestyle he leads, its money-oriented values and urban sense of superiority. Totally charming!

It's 1969 and the end of an era. Withnail and I' are two "resting" actors enjoying a decadent lifestyle in Camden on a diet of booze and drugs. Finding themselves in need of rejuvenation, they set off on holiday to the country cottage of Withnail's mad uncle Monty in Penrith. A sharp and witty romp, and one of the greatest, and quintessentially British, films of all time. find out more...
