  • Directed by: Giuseppe Tornatore
  • Written by: Giuseppe Tornatore
  • Cast: Philippe Noiret, Salvatore Cascio, Marco Leonardi, Jacques Perrin

Told largely in flashback, the winner of the 1990 Oscar for Best Foreign Film traces young Salvatore's infatuation with his village cinema, and his growing friendship with its projectionist (played to perfection by Noiret). Essentially, it's Tornatore's lament for the joyous movie-going experience of his youth and recognition of the price we pay for our maturity.

  • Directed by: Paul Verhoeven
  • Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sharon Stone, Michael Ironside

In Verhoeven's hugely expensive rollercoaster of violence, Arnie plays a construction worker whose vacational fantasy (implanted by Rekall Incorporated) is to pitch him into a netherworld of assassins and femmes fatales before unleashing the full truth about his nightmares of life on Mars. The crazy Dutchman's Martian chronicle, teeming with sicko incident, is powered along by bursts of gee-ain't-this-fun-brutality, but scores points for the playful ingenuity of the plotting, and Arnie looks like he's enjoying himself.
