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.

Back to the Future Part 2

Back to the Future Part II
  • 1989
  • US
  • 1h 48min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Robert Zemeckis
  • Cast: Michael J Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Thomas F Wilson, Lea Thompson, Elisabeth Shue

Finishing with a big tease sequence of highlights for the mid-1990 scheduled Back to the Future Part 3, this could be the longest movie trailer in Hollywood history. Once again Michael has to outfox Biff, this time zooming forwards as well as backwards in the time machine. Directed and played with terrific verve, 'BTF2' moves so fast from one set-piece to the next that there's no time to reflect on the basic ridiculousness of the plot.

  • Directed by: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen (uncredited)
  • Written by: Ethan Coen, Joel Coen
  • Cast: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore

The Coen brothers give their unique twist to a Chandler-esque LA noir, as 70s hippy throwback Jeff 'The Dude' Lebowski (Bridges) is drawn into the sordid affairs of his millionaire namesake. Suddenly he has to sleuth his way through disorganised crime. Trademark oddball characters, surreal imagery and excellent performances grace this virtuoso comedy.

Dr Strangelove (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb)

Doctor Strangelove (Or How I Stopped Worrying And Learned To Love The Bomb)
  • 1963
  • UK
  • 1h 33min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stanley Kubrick
  • Cast: Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden.

Devastating black comedy on the lunacy of the nuclear age with Sellers ideally cast in three roles (US President, jolly Brit captain, and demented teutonic boffin) and Slim Pickens the good ole boy heading for oblivion to a chorus of 'We'll Meet Again'. Still alarmingly relevant.

Lynch's complex, convoluted adaptation of Frank Herbert's 1960s million-selling novel is strikingly shot and not without merit.
