Some Like It Hot

1959 USA

Nobody's perfect! Only this film is as close to perfect as it gets.

Black Narcissus

1947 United Kingdom

A dizzy masterpiece from the greatest of all British filmmakers. It is impossible to forget the red lipstick.

Cries and Whispers

1972 Sweden

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

1973 United Kingdom, Italy

Erotic, terrifying, and desperately sad. A film about the horror of loss.


2004 Argentina, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland

This was my introduction to Martel, an extraordinary director. A puzzle of a movie that lingers like a dream.

The Manchurian Candidate

1962 USA

Sixties cinema at its best. Paranoid, potent and thrillingly entertaining.


1960 Italy, France

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.


1999 United Kingdom, France

Pure poetry. It made me want to make films.

Watership Down

1978 United Kingdom

Cries and Whispers for kids. It should be shown to every child, even if it fucks them up. Which it will.
