Kiss Me Deadly (1955)

Kiss Me Deadly is a thick-ear masterpiece, wrenched by director Robert Aldrich and screenwriter A I Bezzerides from Mickey Spillane's trash novel.

Va-va-voom!"), strange characters,(...)

An adaptation of the 1962 play by Yorkshire-born dramatist Ann Jellicoe which had no observable story and was concerned with three young men and their total preoccupation with(...)

Koyaanisqatsi (1983)

This ground-breaking film is basically a non-narrative view of America with time-lapse photography and amazing music. The film is rooted in three bold ideas.

Gary and Martin Kemp of Spandau Ballet starred in this account of Ronnie and Reggie Kray - the absolute rulers of London's East End underworld through their reign of terror in the 1950s and 1960s.
