Check out the following films:

Performance [R18+]

Psychological 1970 melodrama about a criminal who hides out with a rock star. Chas, a violent and psychotic East London gangster needs a place to lie low after a hit that should never have been carried out. The sex scenes between Mick Jagger and Anita Pallenberg upset Jagger's fellow Rolling Stones member Keith Richards. Some of the footage of sex scenes were so explicit that the film processing lab refused to develop it, on the grounds of it being 'obscene' (!).

Strada, La

Strada, La [M]

A poor girl is sold to an itinerant circus strongman and heads off on the road as his assistant. Bringing together his wife Masina and Hollywood star Quinn, Fellini created what Scorsese has called the “cornerstone” of his body of work. Nino Rota’s score is one of the finest ever composed for the screen. An incredibly moving personal work.

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde [PG]

Excellent performances in this Robert Louis Stevenson's classic. This version focusses on Hyde's personal torment rather than physical horror.

Mamma Mia

Mamma Mia [M]

Meryl Streep leads an all-star cast in a feature-film adaptation of the beloved ABBA musical. Streep plays Donna, the owner of a small hotel in the Greek isles who is about to see her only daughter Sophie get married. Throughout Sophie’s life it has just been the two of them, leaving her yearning to find out who her father is. So she invites three special guests to her wedding – Sam, Harry and Bill.

Mystery Train

Mystery Train [MA15+]

An anthology film set in Memphis, Tennessee with a triptych of stories unfolding over the course of a single night, Mystery Train is another classic of the American Indie cinema scene. Again the cast is comprised of Jarmusch's misfit NY buddies including a young Steve Buscemi, Joe Strummer and Screamin' Jay Hawkins. Adventurous, humourous and another absolute must-see on the big screen.

Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind

Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind [PG]

Animation. In the far future, man has destroyed the Earth in the 'Seven Days of Fire'. Nausicaa embarks on a dangerous journey to ensure the long-term survival of her and her people. This classic Miyazaki film in many ways foreshadows his later hit, 'Princess Mononoke'.

Plan 9 From Outer Space

Plan 9 From Outer Space [G]

Probably the worst movie ever made, this film directed by legendary Edward D Wood Jr is also one of the funniest. Pompous aliens believe they can conquer the world by resurrecting corpses from a Californian cemetery. Please see Tim Burton's brilliant "Ed Wood" before watching this.

Robot Monster (aka Monster From Mars)

Robot Monster (aka Monster From Mars) [PG]

Hilariously awful - one of the worst films of all time. Probably worse than Plan 9 - but perhaps funnier. A Gorilla in a diving helmet (an alien) wipes out nearly the entire Earthly population. (Except for some curious onlookers over on the hill who were caught looking down on the set!) Memorable scene: the Robot Monster is holding the girl in his clenches, but his boss from another planet comes on the videophone - is he torn between duty and lust? Find out on October 20th.

Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance

Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance [PG]

In the earliest battles against the monstrous Angels, young Eva pilots Shinji and Rei were forced to carry humanity's hopes on their shoulders. Now, with the deadly onslaught of the Angels escalating and the apocalyptic Third Impact looming, Shinji and Rei find their burden shared by two new Eva pilots, the fiery Asuka and the mysterious Mari.

Show Boat

Show Boat [G]

A colourful musical about life on the Mississippi. Songs include 'Old Man River', 'Make Believe'.
