If . . . (1968)

This surrealistic story of schoolboy revolt was something of a departure for director Lindsay Anderson, but he succeeded in capturing the absurdities of British public school life and invested the satire with an abundance of venom. When it was released in 1968, Anderson's bellow of righteous outrage was described as "a hand grenade of a(...)

It is 1945.

In A Lonely Place (1950)

Humphrey Bogart is Dixon Steele, an embittered and washed-up Hollywood screenwriter who pays a hat-check girl to help out with a script read-through one night. When she’s found dead the next morning, Steele comes under suspicion until his actor neighbour, Laurel (Gloria Grahame), gives him an alibi. Dix and Laurel fall in love but police suspicion(...)

In Bed With Madonna (1991)

In Cold Blood (1967)

Truman Capote's book about two young real-life murderers was a shocking bestseller in its day and thought impossible to bring to the screen. Yet writer/director Richard Brooks did deliver this harrowing movie adaptation, remarkably faithful to its source (Capote had heard the boys' testimony personally), immaculately photographed in monochrome by master craftsman Conrad Hall, and(...)

In Like Flint (1967)

In Like Flint (1967)

In The Name Of The Father (1993)

There are few more controversial subjects in Britain than 'the troubles' in Northern Ireland and the activities of the IRA. It was therefore extremely bold of Jim Sheridan, the Irish director of My Left Foot (1989), to bring In The Name Of The Father to the screen. But although this compelling drama attacks the British justice system over wrongfully(...)

Incredible Shrinking Man, The (1957)

Incredible Shrinking Man, The (1957)

Scott Carey and his wife Louise are holidaying on a boat when he is momentarily exposed to a mysterious, probably radioactive, mist. Soon afterwards, Scott (Grant Williams) finds himself gradually shrinking. Director Jack Arnold's visual flatness is perfectly suited to the absurdity and ambiguity of the premise of Richard Matheson's story. The first half of The Incredible(...)

Incredible Shrinking Woman, The (1981)

Lily Tomlin stars in this comedy as Pat Kramer, a frenetic American housewife who, falling victim to 20th-century technology, finds herself shrinking inch by inch after exposure to a new perfume. Consumer firms and the media fall over themselves to exploit her, much to the delight of her advertising executive husband, Vance (Charles Grodin) but(...)

Indecent Proposal (1993)

Billionaire John Gage (Robert Redford) offers a down on their luck married couple, Diana and David Murphy (Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson), one million dollars in exchange for a one-night stand with Diana. The interesting "would you do it?" premise of Adrian Lyne's drama goes slightly awry as the moral issues are dumped in favour of(...)

Independence Day (1996)

David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum), Captain Steven Hiller (Will Smith) and U.S. President Thomas J. Whitmore (Bill Pullman) are at the forefront of a desperate fight to save the human race from alien invaders. Technologically naive aliens invaders, it has to be said . . . Even at the risk of it slowing down their plans(...)
