13 JOURS EN FRANCE Claude LELOUCH - François REICHENBACH 1968 - 01:55

This film is not the official film of the Winter Olympic Games, it is neither a sports film nor a film with a message, it is simply a film. A few directors, who just happened to be in Grenoble in February 1968, filmed what was going on around them and within them in total silence. They now present these 13 days that shook their world.

BLAZING SADDLES Mel BROOKS 1974 - 01:33

The railroad's got to run through the town of Rock Ridge. How do you drive out the townfolk in order to steal their land? Send in the toughest gang you've got - and name a new sheriff who'll last about 24 hours. But that's not really what Blazing Saddles is about. Once Mel Brooks' lunatic film (#6 on the American Film Institute's List of the all-time Top-100 Comedy Movies) gets started, logic is lost in a blizzard of gags, jokes, quips, puns, howlers, growlers and outrageous assaults upon one's funnybone. Cleavon Little as the new lawman, Gene Wilder as the wacko Waco Kid, Brooks himself as a dimwitted governor, Harvey Korman as hissably corrupt Hedley Lamarr, Alex Karras as the bewildered Mongo and Madeline Kahn as saloon singer Lili von Shtupp all give this sagebrush saga their lunatic b

BONNIE AND CLYDE Arthur PENN 1967 - 01:52

Depression-era drifters Clyde Barrow (Warren Beatty) and Bonnie Parker (Faye Dunaway) embark on a life of crime. They crave adventure - and each other. We are unprepared for the cascading violence that follows; we learn they can be hurt - and dread they will be killed. The vivid title-role performances get superb support from Michael J. Pollard, Gene Hackman and Estelle Parsons, 1967 Best Supporting Actress Academy Award® winner. Bonnie and Clyde continually dazzles, thanks to director Arthur Penn, cinematographer Burnett Guffey (winner of the film’s second Oscar®) and editor Dede Allen. Decades later, it’s still a thunderous, thrilling ride.

Thrilling sea battles and exhilarating scenery highlights this Best Picture Oscar- nominee that made stars out of Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland.

DIRTY HARRY Don SIEGEL 1971 - 01:42

In a signature role, Clint Eastwood plays a streetwise San Francisco police detective who gets the job done. A rooftop sniper (Andy Robinson) named Scorpio has killed twice. Harry Callahan will nail the perp, one way or the other, no matter what "the system" prescribes. Filming on location, director Don Siegel made the City by the Bay a vital part of one of the best police thrillers ever made.


ENTER THE DRAGON Robert CLOUSE 1973 - 01:50

Bruce Lee’s masterful final film, Enter the Dragon, stands the test of time as the most beloved martial arts epic in film history. This box office hit takes Lee to the island fortress of criminal warlord Han, whose martial arts academy covers up opium smuggling and prostitution activities. To avenge the death of his sister, Lee infiltrates the stronghold and enters Han’s brutal tournament - a breathtaking visual feast of competitions fusing skills in karate, judo, tae kwon do, tai chi chuan and hapkido, staged by Lee himself. What a kick!

HANYO Kim KI-YOUNG 1960 - 01:49

Dong-sik, who teaches music at a textiles factory, shows interest in an article about one of the top three Korean films of all time. Kim Ki-young's masterpiece occupies a place of its own within the Golden Age of Korean cinema. Based on a contemporary news story, the film focuses on a traditional family. The husband, Dong-sik, teaches music to women factory workers, while his wife spends her days at home at the sewing machine trying to earn enough money to cover the family bills. When she breaks down from overwork, Dong-sik employs a housemaid. However, the maid they hire acts in strange ways, spying on Dong-sik and catching rats with her bare hands. Soon an incident occurs which motivates her to plot a dreadful revenge, and the order of the household comes crashing down at the hands of th

I AM A FUGITIVE FROM A CHAIN GANG Mervyn LEROY 1932 - 01:33

World War I is over. Johnny has come marching home. But there’s little fanfare and no meaningful work for one war vet. There’s only the desperate life of an unjustly convicted fugitive. Twice he is sentenced to a chain gang. Twice he escapes. They can put his hands and feet in irons, but not his will to be free. Paul Muni gives a jolting, lived-in performance in this powerhouse classic directed by Mervyn LeRoy (Little Caesar) and based on autobiographical writings by chain-gang escapee Robert E. Burns. Like many ’30s crime sagas, this one thrills with brisk pacing and gritty realities. Yet it also stands apart as a film that made a difference. It ignited protests that led to vital penal reforms. And Burns himself received a commuted sentence. He would be a fugitive no more.

LET'S GET LOST Bruce WEBER 1989 - 02:00

BRUCE WEBER’S FILM ON THE LIFE OF JAZZ GREAT CHET BAKER.

Internationally renowned photographer/filmmaker Bruce Weber created a second stunning feature with LET’S GET LOST, his Academy Award nominated film about the late jazz great Chet Baker. LET’S GET LOST was a sensation at several international film festivals, including the 1989 “New Directors/New Films” series at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and at the Venice Film Festival, where it won the prestigious Critics’ Prize.

LET’S GET LOST, also the name of a long out-of-print Baker tune, aptly describes the driving force of this man and his music. His James Dean looks and cool sound set Baker apart from the other musicians of his time but his ongoing issues with a narcotic addiction also gave a generation of jazz fans a Doome

MATRIX Larry WACHOWSKI - Andy WACHOWSKI 1999 - 02:16

Perception: Our day-in, day-out world is real. Reality: That world is a hoax, an elaborate deception spun by all-powerful machines of artificial intelligence that control us. Mind-warp stunts. Techno-slammin’ visuals. Mega-kick action. Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne lead the fight to free humankind in the see-and-see-again cyberthriller written and directed by the Wachowski Brothers. The story sears, the special effects stake out new movie-making territory, the movie flat-out rocks!

A young man (Felix) is confined in a mental hospital.

Back in the present, he escapes and joins his surviving and armless mother. Against his will, he "becomes her arms" and the two undertake a grisly campaign of murder and revenge.

SUSUZ YAZ Metin ERKSAN 1964 - 01:25

Dry Summer, a village story whose source is the struggle over land and water, is one of the most stunning examples of the clash between good and evil in the Turkish Cinema. Repeating the success he achieved with The Revenge of the Snakes, a Fakir Baykurt adaptation shot in 1962, in Dry Summer, Metin Erksan shows the confrontation between two brothers, Osman and Hassan. Osman surrounds the water that springs from their lands with barriers to prevent the village from using it. Being a good man, Hassan argues that the others should also use the water. Confessing a murder actually committed by his brother, Hassan is convicted and sent to jail. After his release he learns that Osman used deception to take away his wife and marry her. Hasan loses control. In the ensuing fight, he drowns Osman in

To make ends meet, she tries to sell dancing classes over the telephone. She also rents one of her rooms to people that are even stranger than her.

THE PASSIONATE FRIENDS David LEAN 1948 - 01:31

"The Passionate Friends" has been hailed by critic David Thomson as the David Lean film 'most deserving rediscovery'. Mary has chosen a comfortable secure life with her rich banker husband over romantic passion with her first love Steven. Turmoil ensues when Steven suddenly reappears in her life. With its subtle performances, nuanced direction and beautiful cinematography, Lean's absorbing romance, adapted from a story by H. G. Wells, is a fascinating companion piece to "Brief Encounter".

THIS HAPPY BREED David LEAN 1944 - 01:54

Noël Coward was the source for this story of a London lower middle-class suburban family in the inter-war years from 1919 to 1939. The finely and wittily observed family feuds unfold against a panorama of public events ranging from the General Strike of 1926 to the outbreak of war itself. Beautifully acted by an ensemble cast and shot in Technicolor, the film was a huge contemporary hit and has lost little of its appeal.

Starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford WHATEVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE is a thriller about an aging ex-vaudeville child star who initiates a psychotic reign of terror over her crippled 30’s movie-queen sister. Crawford is heartbreaking as Blanche, the terrorised sister hiding a dreadful secret. And Davis, in one of her best performances, portrays a yowling, grotesque Baby Jane -funny, frightening and utterly fabulous.


WHAT'S UP DOC? Peter BOGDANOVICH 1972 - 01:34

What's Up, Doc? joyously recaptures the bubbly style of 1930s screwball comedies and firmly establishes Barbra Streisand and Ryan O'Neal as a romantic duo uniquely endearing in screen history. Included are a daffy luggage mixup plot, dippy dialogue exchanges, a marvelous example of the art of hotel-room demolition and one of the funniest chase sequences ever, all over San Francisco. Dexterously written with a surefooted sense of the ridiculous by Buck Henry, David Newman and Robert Benton, directed by Peter Bogdanovich with giddy affection and cast with awesomely hilarious players (including film-debuting Madeline Kahn), What's Up, Doc? is no idle question. Among comedy movies, it's the top.
