Pleasantville [DVD] [1999]

Almost Famous [DVD] [2002]
Almost Famous [DVD] [2002]
"Vividly conveys exciting, edgy, fun but morally fluid atmosphere surrounding band Still Water then explores emotions of characters as they discover themselves in amongst the hype. Get Director’s Cut"
Revelation [DVD] [2002]
Revelation [DVD] [2002]
"Intelligent story - Knights Templar still exist as political agitants protecting explosive secret linked to Christ.  Loads of historical references to the Crucifixion, apostles, Newton and occult"
Lawrence of Arabia - Two Disc Set [DVD]

The English Patient [DVD] [1997]

Ghost Dog - The Way Of The Samurai [DVD] [2000]
Ghost Dog - The Way Of The Samurai [DVD] [2000]
"A FilmFour gem.  At once funny, philosophical and tragic – you will watch it more than once and wonder whether your life would benefit from less ephemera and more personal conviction."
Brotherhood Of The Wolf [DVD] [2001]
Brotherhood Of The Wolf [DVD] [2001]
"Read the Jason Parkes review.  He gets it."
The Big Blue [Version Longue] [DVD] [1988]
The Big Blue [Version Longue] [DVD] [1988]
"Huge visuals and Jean Reno playing Italian super-ego Enzo Molinari.  Little happens so there is time to exploit the locations and develop the characters.  Feel the sun as you watch"
Instinct [DVD] [1999]
Instinct [DVD] [1999]
"Explores need to be free, have purpose and be part of a community, values which are disappearing from modern world.  An appealing introduction to a subject that could stand more weighty treatment"
The Last Castle [DVD] [2002]
The Last Castle [DVD] [2002]
"Highlights difference between management and leadership with insights around themes of giving people back self-respect and getting them to believe in what is possible.  Overcooked finale though"
