The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
  • 2011
  • US/Sweden/UK/Germany
  • 2h 37min
  • 18
  • Directed by: David Fincher
  • Cast: Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara, Christopher Plummer, Stellan Skarsgård, Steven Berkoff, Robin Wright, Yorick van Wageningen, Joely Richardson

An investigative journalist (Craig) forms an uneasy alliance with a computer hacker (Mara) in an attempt to solve a disappearance. Fincher amps up the dark poetry and Mara exudes a barely suppressed rage in every scene, elevating a populist novel into a compelling (if overlong) drama of bleakness and corruption.

Cute and cuddly little mogwais become malevolent monsters if not properly cared for and wreak havoc in idealised small town America. A tongue-in-cheek Yuletide romp filled with in-jokes.

Steven (Farrell) is a cardiac surgeon who finds himself being stalked by a creepy teenager, martin (Keoghan); then Steven’s family is threatened with an inexplicable sickness.

  • Directed by: Dorota Kobiela/Hugh Welchman
  • Cast: Douglas Booth, Jerome Flynn, Robert Gulaczyk

Armand Roulin (Booth) tries to find out what happened to the late artist Vincent can Gogh (Gulaczyk). Live action footage was hand-painted over to give a van Gogh-like effect, and the result is visually intoxicating, adding up more than the novelty of its sumptuous parts.

Oldboy

Oldboy
  • 2003
  • South Korea
  • 2h
  • 18
  • Directed by: Park Chan-wook
  • Cast: Choi Min-sik , Yu Ji-tae

Kidnapped, locked up for 15 years and then released for no apparent reason, Oh Dae Su (Choi) is now a neanderthal on the rampage. He wants answers and revenge and he will take them by claw hammer or scissor. Part existential thriller, part Oedipal myth, Park 's second revenge movie is the generic equivalent to an electric current through the gonads. He slices and dices between absurdist comedy, horror and enigmatic philosophy with breathtaking skill. A masterpiece.

  • Written by: John Hughes
  • Cast: Steve Martin, John Candy

Martin is a harassed Chicago businessman desperate to return home from New York for Thanksgiving. After missing the last flight home he undergoes a series of fraught misadventures, reluctantly enduring the accident-prone Candy as traveling companion. Predictable and sentimental 'odd couple' road movie which is nonetheless genuinely funny.

Rebel Without a Cause
  • 1956
  • US
  • 1h 51min

  • Directed by: Nicholas Ray
  • Cast: James Dean, Natalie Wood, Sal Mineo

In this seminal youth movie, Dean is a sensitive but misunderstood kid battling to communicate with his parents and caught in the violent struggle for self-definition. Though now irrevocably dated, this is still notable as the film that articulated the until-then unrecognised experiences and aspirations of a whole generation and does of course contain our favourite nostalgia icon in full flow.

Sympathy for Mr Vengeance

Sympathy for Mr Vengeance
  • 2003

  • Directed by: Park Chan-Wook

When a deaf mute is laid off work, he struggles to find the money for his dying sister's kidney transplant. After some bad experiences in the medical black market the siblings decide to resort to the kidnap of a child to raise funds for the operation, but things do not run smoothly. Lee Jae-Sun and Lee Mu-Yeong's beautifully structured script is the key to this complex, ultra-violent vision of love, loss and revenge. Chan-Woo shifts and twists the action till you don't really have a clue what is going on - but you can't tear yourself away.

True Romance

True Romance
  • 1993

  • 18
  • Directed by: Tony Scott
  • Written by: Quentin Tarantino, Roger Avary (uncredited)
  • Cast: Christian Slater, Patricia Arquette, Dennis Hopper, Val Kilmer, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, Christopher Walken

Comic bookstore assistant Clarence meets, sleeps with and marries novice hooker Alabama within a matter of hours, then the lovebirds find themselves on the run with an accidentally stolen case of cocaine. Limelight-stealing cameos and writer Quentin Tarantino's verbal set-pieces fire this excellent movie, the epitome of disposable pop culture for the fast-food generation.
