unexpected treats you should check out

A Listmania! list by Kelvin J. Dickinson (Leeds, England)

Glass House [DVD]
1.  Glass House [DVD] 
The list author says:
  "you may not have come across this excellent prison movie before but it's well worth seeing. Downbeat and tough, the brutal culture of hierarchy within the convict system is both terrifying and tragic"
3.96   Used & New from: 0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Masque of Red Death & Premature Burial [DVD] [1962] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
2.  Masque of Red Death & Premature Burial [DVD] [1962] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] DVD ~ Vincent Price
The list author says:
  "Roger Corman horror films should not scare me: fact. Maybe the premise of 'The Premature Burial' tapped into some subconscious fear? Whatever the case, it's a highly effective 1962 (1962!!) shocker"
Used & New from: 5.79

The Offence [DVD] [1972]
3.  The Offence [DVD] [1972] DVD ~ Sean Connery
The list author says:
  "Sean Connery shows us a depth of characterisation you never thought possible in this compellingly grim and powerful film. Worth seeing, if even only once"
14.98   Used & New from: 5.98
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Jubilee [DVD]
4.  Jubilee [DVD] DVD ~ Jenny Runacre
The list author says:
  "'Jubilee' is about the decline of society. Hard-hitting punk-era surrealism perfectly captured by Derek Jarman...you can almost smell the atmosphere. Great soundtrack too"
12.24   Used & New from: 7.38
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

That'll Be The Day/Stardust [DVD] [1973]
5.  That'll Be The Day/Stardust [DVD] [1973] DVD ~ David Essex
The list author says:
  "charting a rock star's descent into self-destruction via the usual excesses, these films have great supporting casts and complement excellent performances throughout by David Essex"
Used & New from: 7.98
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Ice Cold In Alex [DVD]
6.  Ice Cold In Alex [DVD] DVD ~ John Mills
The list author says:
  "this is so good you don't really notice the stiff-upper-lipped film style of the time...and the back-breaking journey ensures you can almost taste John Mills' patiently-awaited beer at the end"
11.06   Used & New from: 1.96
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (55 customer reviews)

Crimes And Misdemeanours [DVD] [1990]
7.  Crimes And Misdemeanours [DVD] [1990] DVD ~ Martin Landau
The list author says:
  "Woody Allen at his serious best. He has captured brutally natural performances from the cast and the result is engrossing from start to finish. Superb turns by Alan Alda and Martin Landau."
8.80   Used & New from: 2.46
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)

Grand Canyon [DVD] [1992]
8.  Grand Canyon [DVD] [1992] DVD ~ Danny Glover
The list author says:
  "what is it with the lure of wide open spaces (and its juxtapostion with the urban sprawl) that gets people so hot under the collar? A stylish ensemble piece examines those angsts (sorry, complexities)"
3.88   Used & New from: 0.38
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Good Night and Good Luck [DVD]
9.  Good Night and Good Luck [DVD] DVD ~ David Strathairn
The list author says:
  "50's Macarthyite paranoia is explored via an anchorman who refuses to toe the right-wing agenda. Excellent low-key drama and an admirable effort by Clooney"
6.27   Used & New from: 0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (71 customer reviews)

The Constant Gardener [DVD] [2005]
10.  The Constant Gardener [DVD] [2005] DVD ~ Ralph Fiennes
The list author says:
  "I wasn't expecting to like this but I was wrong. Rich visual colour palettes and astonshing scenery contrast with government corruption and dark dealings in unliscensed drug trials."
2.75   Used & New from: 0.01
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (143 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion
