2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey
  • 1968
  • UK
  • 2h 19min
  • U
  • Directed by: Stanley Kubrick
  • Cast: Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, William Sylvester, Douglas Rain (voice)

Kubrick's gloriously grand architecture sees prehistoric apes timelined into a space ballet featuring a lunar craft docking to the sound of Strauss. This scene prefigures an extended drama aboard a spacecraft bound for Jupiter involving the murderous AI computer and the giant embryo of a space child signifying … what? The next step in human evolution? An opaque masterpiece, which suggests so much, yet explains so little. Which is why it's a timeless classic.

  • US
  • 2h
  • 18
  • Directed by: David Lynch
  • Cast: Kyle MacLachlan, Isabella Rossellini, Dennis Hopper, Laura Dern, Hope Lange, George Dickerson, Dean Stockwell

In small-town Middle America, would-be boy detective MacLachlan finds a severed ear on some waste ground. When the police shoo him away he decides to do some investigating of his own. A singular fusion of the cosy and the terrifying which blends kitsch and nightmare, B-movie detection and brutal sex to deconstruct our complacent vision of normal society. This is filmmaking of remarkable imagination and skill.

Easy Rider

Easy Rider
  • 1969
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Dennis Hopper
  • Written by: Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Terry Southern
  • Cast: Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Jack Nicholson

Two dudes on choppers with a couple of tanks full of drugs, riding across America in search of … what? The Dream? Freedom? Well, they don't find it. What they do find at the close of the 1960s is the butt end of a bad trip. Whether you regard this as the best biker movie ever made or a generation-defining classic (or both), the impact, now and then, of Easy Rider can't be overstated.

Edward Scissorhands

Edward Scissorhands
  • 1991
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Tim Burton
  • Cast: Johnny Depp, Winona Ryder, Dianne Wiest, Anthony Michael Hall, Kathy Baker, Vincent Price, Alan Arkin

Burton follows up the excesses of Batman with this fairy tale for the 90s, which works as a welcome return to the darker side of the genre. Depp is the unfinished creation of The Inventor (Price), who lives alone in a crumbling mansion, unable to even scratch his nose without needing stitches. Discovered by a friendly Avon lady, his talent for coiffure and topiary makes him a neighbourhood favourite until tragedy strikes. Beautifully shot, tenderly acted and full of hidden depths.

From Dusk Till Dawn

From Dusk Till Dawn
  • 1996
  • US
  • 1h 48min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Robert Rodriguez
  • Cast: Harvey Keitel, George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino, Juliette Lewis

For its first third, this Tarantino-scripted movie is a suspenseful kidnap thriller as two killers on the run (Clooney and Tarantino) hole up with three hostages in a Mexican strip club. Then the tone changes into an sfx-heavy vampire western as the clientele spring fangs. Repetition abounds in a messy, tedious affair that's neither scary nor funny.
