Brick (2005)
Director: Rian Johnson
Johnson's impressive debut finds Hammett-style P. I. stories re-staged in a high school as the superb Joseph Gordon-Levitt sets about investigating the suspicious death of a former girlfriend. Read Review
Princess Mononoke (1997)
Director: Hayao Miyazaki

Superbad (2007)
Director: Greg Mottola
This coming-of-age tale from the Judd Apatow school of comedy succeeds by genuinely caring for its lovable loser heroes - doesn't stop it from hilariously putting the pair through the wringer, though. Read Review

Breakfast At Tiffany's (1961)
Director: Blake Edwards
While it has its flaws, there's no denying that Audrey Hepburn still looks ravishing and Henry Mancini's score still makes us swing. Read Review
The Wicker Man (1973)
Director: Robin Hardy

Director: Darren Aronofsky
Despite splitting audiences right down the middle, there's no mistaking the conviction that drives this deceptively simple fable about love and death. Read Review
