Allegro Non Troppo [1990] [VHS]
1.  Allegro Non Troppo [1990] [VHS] VHS Maurizio Nichetti|Bruno Bozzetto|Maurizio Micheli|Néstor Garay
The list author says:
  "Mesmerising animation film by Italian director Bruno Bozzetto accompanied to classical music. Often referred to as the 'Italian Fantasia' but in my view far superior and original."

2001: A Space Odyssey [VHS]
2.  2001: A Space Odyssey [VHS] VHS Keir Dullea
The list author says:
  "Enigmatic & intelligent science fiction film. Visually stunning space scenes and the 'storyline' refreshingly and faithfully staying with the phenomena of alien presence influencing man's evolution."
£4.97   Used & New from: £1.99
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (295 customer reviews) | 7 customer discussions

Solaris [VHS]
3.  Solaris [VHS] VHS Natalya Bondarchuk
The list author says:
  "Solaris is Andrei Tarkovsky's most far-reaching examination of human perceptions, susceptibilities and failings. It de-literalises the familiar, challenging the hubris of science/space colonisation."
£16.94   Used & New from: £7.00
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (51 customer reviews)

The Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy - The Complete Series [VHS] [1981]

Monty Python's Life Of Brian [VHS] [1979]
5.  Monty Python's Life Of Brian [VHS] [1979] VHS Graham Chapman
The list author says:
  "Sublimally funny and hilariously subversive - what comic geniuses, the likes of which we'll never see again. Never tire of watching bwian and wodger et al."

Stalker [VHS] [1979]
6.  Stalker [VHS] [1979] VHS Alisa Freyndlikh
The list author says:
  "Another Andrei Tarkovsky film I couldn't resist including. The images in 'the zone' are vivid, dark and unsettling - like entering a dreamscape, challenging our secular, dayworld perspective."
Used & New from: £21.00
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (57 customer reviews)

The Dream and the Underworld
7.  The Dream and the Underworld by James Hillman
