Isn’t a comfortable watch but it is a memorable one thanks to its excellent performances and forthright manner in tackling the subject of domestic abuse.

Feels more like a filmed pop art exhibition than an actual movie and, as such, is definitely a “love it or hate it” effort...

Poster for Phantom Thread

Phantom Thread

10

A movie that says so much about relationships between men and women and the dysfunctionality of their traditional respective roles.

L'Enfer d'Henri-Georges Clouzot

Inferno and Clouzot remain little more than tantalising enigmas here.

Poster for Big Trouble in Little China

Big Trouble in Little China

Poster for Aguirre: The Wrath of God

Aguirre: The Wrath of God

10

The chaotic, desperate, do-or-die nature of the film’s production is reflected perfectly in what is up on screen...

Poster for Strangled

Strangled

Fascinatingly dark maybe, stomach-churningly unpleasant certainly, a richly vivid historical account most definitely.

Poster for Do the Right Thing

Do the Right Thing

It’s the finest anti-racist film ever made. Do the right thing and make sure you see it.

Anyone with either passion for art or who is looking for a beautifully relaxing method to while away the time should get hold of this disc.

Definitely one of the stronger true crime-inspired films out there.

McDonagh’s characters, for all of their faults, are multifaceted and undeniably human.

An unusual horror film from its period in that it largely emphasises a believable script and implied horrors...
