Some Like It Hot
Nobody's perfect! Only this film is as close to perfect as it gets.
A dizzy masterpiece from the greatest of all British filmmakers. It is impossible to forget the red lipstick.
Cries and Whispers
An existential howl of a film that still keeps me up at night.
Perhaps the best film of the last 25 years and one of the greatest ever made about loneliness.
Don't Look Now
Erotic, terrifying, and desperately sad. A film about the horror of loss.
La NIÑA SANTA
This was my introduction to Martel, an extraordinary director. A puzzle of a movie that lingers like a dream.
The Manchurian Candidate
Sixties cinema at its best. Paranoid, potent and thrillingly entertaining.
I saw this film while working as an usher at the NFT in the mid-'90s. The screening had an earphone commentary rather than subtitles. I didn't have any earphones. The images alone blew my mind to pieces.
Pure poetry. It made me want to make films.
Cries and Whispers for kids. It should be shown to every child, even if it fucks them up. Which it will.
