Pure Formality, APure Formality, A (1996)
Dir. Giuseppe Tornatore
Feat. Gerard Depardieu, Roman Polanski
A chilling interrogation of an elusive murder suspect transpires under weather most foul. Roman Polanski and Gerard Depardieu face-off brilliantly in a film that wraps character study, gripping suspense, and surrealism into a package of virtuoso style. The director of CINEMA PARADISO proves equally adept in…
CourtCourt (2014)
Dir. Chaitanya Tamhane
Feat. Vira Sathidar, Vivek Gomber
A strikingly confident directorial debut that exposes the antiquity of the Indian legal system through the court trial of an ageing protest singer who is accused of encouraging a manhole worker to commit suicide through one of his folk songs. Most of the dialogue is in the Marathi language as it is set in…
GabbehGabbeh (1996)
Dir. Mohsen Makhmalbaf
Feat. Abbas Sayah, Shaghayeh Djodat, Hossein Moharami
Unique combination of lyricism and social realism from one of the icons of Iranian cinema - a story of a remote struggling tribe, the tremendously comfortable rugs they weave, and the tales of romance which sustain them, all told in the uncluttered, economic style which typifies the best Iranian films.
Graduation Graduation (2016)
Dir. Cristian Mungiu
Feat. Adrian Titieni, Maria-Victoria Dragus
Subtly engrossing drama follows the moral dilemmas of a well-meaning and respected doctor who succumbs to Romania's endemic corruption in order to protect his daughter's promising academic future abroad. In a similar way to Iran's Asghar Farhadi, writer/director Cristian Mungiu's delineates the impact of…

Feat. Catherine Frot, Catherine Deneuve
Two of French cinema's most beloved actors, Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Ford, team up in this rich character study by the director of SERAPHINE. Ford plays a midwife and single mum whose quiet, focussed life is disrupted both by her local community ward being shut down and the sudden intrusion of her…
Call Me By Your NameCall Me By Your Name (2017)
Dir. Luca Guadagnino
Feat. Armie Hammer, Timothée Chalamet, Michael Stuhlbarg
Completing the "Desire" trilogy with I AM LOVE and A BIGGER SPLASH, this coming-of-age drama is set in Northern Italy in 1983, where a 17 year old boy begins a relationship with his father's research assistant. An exquisite production that transcends it's visual splendour with an irresistibly heartfelt and…
Blade of the ImmortalBlade of the Immortal (2017)
Dir. Takashi Miike
Feat. Takuya Kimura, Sugisaki Hana, Fukushi Sota
Japanese uber-director Miike Takashi’s 100th feature, based on a popular manga series about a vengeful swordsman with an uncanny ability to grow back his own limbs. The howler of a premise giddily sets the stage for a virtuoso display of kinetic action and flying body parts.
