A Clockwork Orange (1971)

A Clockwork Orange (1971)

Being the adventures of a young man whose principal interests are rape, ultra-violence and Ludwig Van (Beethoven). Horrorshow fun for all the family, oh my brothers! The one unmissable (but unseeable in the UK - the director withdrew the film in 1974 and refused permission to screen the film in Britain until his death) and(...)

C.C. And Company (1970)

Motorcycle mechanic C.C. Ryder (super bowl champion N.Y. Jets quarterback Joe Namath) joins The Heads, an outlaw biker gang. Fellow gang members menace fashion journalist Ann McCalley (Ann-Margret) when her limo breaks down in the desert, but C.C. comes to her rescue. The bikers disrupt a motocross event tied in with a fashion shoot, but C.C.(...)

Cabaret (1972)

If you're willing to accept that the musical truly came of age with the arrival of Judy Garland at MGM, there's a fitting irony that her daughter Liza Minnelli played the lead in this musical drama - based on the 1955 film I Am A Camera which in turn was based on the writings of Christopher Isherwood(...)

Cable Guy, The (1996)

Cable Guy, The (1996)

Jim Carrey was afforded the opportunity to do something different in this jet-black satire on the power of television, and he responded with a performance that brings a dark edge to his wacky, man-of-the-people persona. Carrey is on top form as manic cable-television engineer Chip Douglas who takes a special interest in his new customer,(...)

Caddie (1976)

In Sydney in 1925, Caddie (Helen Morse) gets a job as a barmaid in an inner-city pub after walking out on an unfaithful husband. She has no money and two children to feed. There are fights, foul language and men throwing up on the floor, and the working conditions are appalling. But she learns the(...)

Caddyshack (1980)

Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Bill Murray, Ted Knight and Michael O'Keefe starred in this classic comedy. A louche golf professional (Chase) gets caught up in a feud between a snooty golf club president (Knight) and a vulgar millionaire (Dangerfield) who wants to buy the course for a new property development. This hilarious movie had scene(...)

Café Flesh (1982)

Café Flesh (1982)

Although only a classy porn movie with artistic pretensions, Stephen Sayadian's cult classic (directed under his pseudonym 'Rinse Dream') is extraordinarily prophetic when viewed restrospectively in an AIDS-related context. A post-holocaust generation has been divided into two groups: "Sex Positives" and "Sex Negatives". By law, the former have to perform in front of the latter(...)

Caged Heat (1974)

The original woman's prison movie. We've got fat prison guards, some lesbian action, a wicked warden, and a prison doctor who likes to "experiment" on the women. A girl is caught in a drug bust and sent to a Southern penitentiary, Connorville Women's Prison. The iron-handed wheelchair-bound warden (Barbara Steele) takes exception to a stand-up(...)

Caine Mutiny, The (1954)

Nominated for seven Academy Awards in 1954 (including Best Picture and Best Actor), The Caine Mutiny is a classic film (based on a novel by Herman Wouk) about the unstable Captain Queeg (Humphrey Bogart) and his tumultuous command of an old minesweeper and her weary crew. On the high seas during the dramatic battles of World War(...)

Cal (1984)

Cal opens like a slasher horror film, using a tracking shot of a killer’s point of view as a car drives to the house of a member of the Royal Ulster Constabulary before an unseen gunman shoots him dead. After this sensationalist beginning, the tone mellows and we're left with a romantic thriller set against(...)

Calamity Jane (1953)

Calamity Jane (1953)

The opening sequence of this wonderful musical is pure pleasure, as Doris Day rides the Deadwood stage across the screen and into our hearts. Day, at the height of her career as America's singing sweetheart, galloped through this perky, tuneful spoof of the Old West in 1953 and scored one of her biggest movie hits. This(...)

California Dreaming (1979)

A young man arrives on the Californian coast intending to pay tribute to his dead brother and decides to make a new life for himself there. A barman offers him a place to stay as he tries to work out where he fits in, but the arrangement is complicated by his feelings toward his host's(...)

California Suite (1978)

Four groups of visitors stay at the swanky Beverly Hills Hotel and are forced to deal with problems ranging from a runaway daughter to which outfit to wear to the Academy Awards ceremony. Neil Simon is at his most devilish and rapier-witted with this adaptation of his hit Broadway comedy, a classy confection of oddball vignettes.(...)

Caligula (1980)

Caligula (1980)

Bob Guccione's violent and explicit take on Rome's most depraved Emperor is one of cinema's legendary disasters. Caligula was a demented Roman emperor who ruled the pagans from AD 37 to 41. His reign was short and so was his popularity, but by the time he was murdered at the age of twenty-nine he had(...)

Camelot (1967)

Warner Bros lavished no less than $15 million on this overblown, overstuffed version of the successful Lerner and Loewe Broadway musical. Richard Harris, Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero form the Round Table ménage a trois as King Arthur, Guinevere and Lancelot, and they are supported by David Hemmings as Mordred, Lawrence Naismith as Merlin and(...)
