    Thriller about a British soldier trapped alone in an IRA controlled area of Belfast in the early 70s. One of those films which thinks it's being radical but really it's not. Ends up one of them which looks like it's shot by people who play video games, empty and over stylised.

    John Ford near masterpiece based on the famous John Steinbeck novel. Fantastic cast, great characters and almost gothic dust bowl photography by Greg Towland ("Citizen Kane"). The struggle, the deprivation and the economic injustices suffered by ordinary people here still go on today - this is not some fable from a by gone era to be inspected from a disconnected distance, it's relevant here and now. A humanistic classic, John Ford probably the greatest American director who has ever lived.

    Manipulative, boring, emotionally simplistic drama directed by Steven Spielberg. The film is way too long, as usual with directors like Spielberg, he thinks he is making an epic for the sake of making an epic so it's very long winded. I'm something of an animal lover, but i gotta be honest, i didn't give a fuck about this fella or his horse.
