KNIFE IN THE WATER (POLAND 1962) ROMAN POLANSKI A cast of three and a boat star in Polanski’s first feature film, a tense sexual thriller. A couple invite a young hitchhiker onto their sloop and the two men compete. The tension is heightened by classy camerawork and seductive knifeplay.

CONTEMPT (FRANCE 1963) JEAN-LUC GODARD This ironic drama is perhaps Godard’s 8½. A writer (Michel Piccoli) is lured by a Hollywood producer (Jack Palance) into rewriting a screenplay of the Odyssey. His wife (Brigitte Bardot) doesn’t want him to sell out.

SEX, LIES AND VIDEOTAPE (USA 1989) STEVEN SODERBERGH A sensitive Cannes Palme d’Or winner. Dialogue-driven rather than physically
explicit, it nevertheless explores the intimate details of a quartet of discontents in a sexy as well as finely crafted way, and with humour.

BLACK ORPHEUS (BRAZ/FRA 1959) MARCEL CAMUS The Greek legend is transposed to the carnival in Rio. The doomed lovers play out their fate against a background of noisy exoticism, colour and above all great music – from Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto et al. Oscar and Palme d’Or winner at Cannes.
  27 February 2015
WINGS OF DESIRE (GERMANY 1987) WIM WENDERS Two angels watch above postwar Berlin, sometimes descending to support those in distress.
One (Bruno Ganz) falls – to earth and in love with a trapeze artist. Part philosophical, part political, hugely acclaimed (‘a meditation on being alive’).
  27 March 2015
MY LEFT FOOT (IRE/UK 1989) JIM SHERIDAN Christy Brown had control of his left foot only, but the film celebrates his artistic achievements. No sentimental weepie, but an honest portrayal of his life in a tough Dublin family.
Daniel Day-Lewis’s Christy is a virtuoso performance.

SHOOT THE PIANIST (FRANCE 1960) FRANÇOIS TRUFFAUT Charles Aznavour is a washed up pianist who gets involved with gangster lowlife. After 400 Blows, Truffaut melded Hollywood style with French new wave camera tricks and jokes in a pastiche gangster love story with a cabaret setting.

THE MUSIC ROOM (INDIA 1958) SATYAJIT RAY A wonderfully evocative drama about an elderly aristocrat resisting change by investing in classical Indian musicians. It is one of Ray’s most magnificently visual films, with a ravishing score. There is irony as well as affection in this masterpiece.
