When I think boxing and movies it goes something like “den-nen den, den-nen den” followed by running up the steps of that Museum in Philly in a tracksuit – not crack and Massachusetts white trash. Sweet camera work, great cast and punching. Poi-fect. JJ

Set in Australia – apparently about true events. Two English female friends and an Aussie bloke set out on a road trip with the usual aims of seeing the outback, getting drunk, and having sex; all seem to get accomplished. That is until they meet this strange but friendly Aussie who offers to fix their car for free. Is it too good to be true? I don’t know… you tell me. Brian Murray
It’s the civil rights era in the US and African-American Petey Green (Don Cheadle), an ex-con with the gift of the gab, lands his dream job as a radio DJ. This true story of his eventual rise to fame as inspirational civil rights figure was done with just the right amount of humour, sensitivity and style.
This is a true story, a book and now a shite film. A family of New York WASPs journey between the leisure spots favoured by European WASPs (Paris, London, Mallorca, the Riviera). The rest is incest, murder, threesomes, adultery, attempted suicide, sodomy. A tale of dysfunction and decadence. Only fit for a French audience.
