Blending elements of "Shallow Grave" and "Fargo", this noir-ish thriller should satisfy the most demanding fan of the genre. Set in the snowbound Midwest of America, the cautionary tale begins when three locals discover a crashed aircraft containing a dead pilot and millions of dollars in cash. Half-witted good ol' boys Jacob and Lou can't wait to get stuck into the obviously ill-gotten gains, while the sensible, principled Hank just knows it'll all end in tears. Of course, the trio go for the j find out more...

Jacob Peterson is devoted to the small Indian orphanage that he runs, but cash flow problems force him to return to Denmark where, despite his bullish nature, he receives a very generous funding offer from a wealthy businessman. Frustratingly for Jacob the money has stipulations, one of which is to attend a wedding, an event which propels him back into a past he thought long forgotten.

The greatest movie ever made? A soldier is sent into the Heart of Darkness to retrieve a commander gone AWOL in an insane reality of tin-pot power, paranoia and inglorious killing. The horror of war is stripped naked in a surreal twilight world. The crew nearly went mad making it, Martin Sheen suffered a heart attack and Coppola flew so far beyond budget that the word 'bankrupt' was nearly redefined. See "Heart of Darkness"... find out more...

The definitive 'Apocalypse Now' (as if the original wasn't pretty definitive) this has nearly an hour of extra footage fleshing out the surreal journey of our central protagonists and, though it brings the film to a whisker short of three and a half hours, much of it explains what happens to the eclectic characters we meet. The cut version of 'Apocalypse Now' stands as one of the most awesome films of modern cinema, anyone who has seen it will inevitably see it again, it's just that now you have find out more...

BIRDY (1985)

Certification15 Our Rating

Two soldiers return from Vietnam, one mentally scarred, the other physically. We flashback to their childhood and the fascination the slightly crazy one has with flying. So maybe after the horror of war it's a more logical decision to be a bird! A brilliant film about disillusionment, growing up and existential madness. find out more...

The two are bound together by their wildly divergent, but inextricably linked, quests and it is here that the action of the film lies as th find out more...
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...
