Environmentally aware eco-doc in the style of Koyaanisqatsi has the major advantage of having been shot in 70mm, which makes the stunning cinematography the star of the show. Beautiful footage of Planet Earth is juxtaposed with man's harmful relation to it, with the Big Statement being pushed forwards by a series of powerful images. A genuine spectacle.

Herzog's superb documentary about Timothy Treadwell, the troubled and eccentric environmentalist and former actor who sought redemption through dedicating himself to saving grizzly bears, filmed some incredible footage of them and was eventually killed by them.

Robust yet freewheeling adaptation of John Krakauer's non-fiction book about the extraordinary experiences of young American college graduate and society dropout Christopher McCandless (Hirsch), who traded his privileged future for a life on the road. Penn's portrait of McCandless' travels is a poetic and romanticised one, beautifully photographed by French cinematographer Eric Gautier and unspooling as a series of largely life-affirming encounters with nature and fellow travellers.

Koyaanisqatsi

  • U
  • Directed by: Godfrey Reggio

Philip Glass' soundtrack and Ron Fricke's cinematography are the twin pillars of the narrative voice in this first film of Reggio's 'qatsi' trilogy. It opens with a single deep red word, some archaic cave drawings and a mournful hum. All of which represents our collective 'life out of balance', a translation from the Hopi Indian word 'koyaanasqatsi'. This is scrapbook filmmaking in harmony with the creative elements.

Classic, brilliant Ealing heist comedy in which a bunch of criminals pretend to be travelling musicians in order to hide out in an old lady's house. The only trouble is that the old lady is a little bit more of a handful than they expected. Guiness, Lom and Parker were rarely better than here and the young Sellers shows his great promise.
