Set in roaring twenties Hollywood, Michel Hazanavicius's highly acclaimed film shows swashbuckling silent film star George Valentin's career in sharp decline with the advent of Talking Pictures, while studio extra Peppy Miller is rising through the ranks to become a star. Their destinies entwined, The Artist is a sparkling Comedy/ Drama/ Romance, a love letter to a Golden era of Filmmaking and to the Director's wife and leading lady Bérénice Bejo. Jean Dujardin and the entire cast are sheer perfection, Guillaume Schiffman's cinematography is sublime and Ludovic Bource's original score is inspired in this supremely entertaining and much acclaimed film. Winner of over 150 Film Awards worldwide including ten Academy Award nominations and five awards for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Original Score and Best Costume Design,  Hazanavicius's The Artist is pure movie magic from the first frame to the last.

Director Tim Burton's loving homage to Movie Director, screenwriter, actor, and producer Edward Davis Wood, Jr. whose 1950's Horror, Western and Science Fiction films earned him a celebrated reputation as one of the worst but most exuberant directors of all time. Johnny Depp is perfectly cast as the ambitious Hollywood outsider alongside the wonderful Martin Landau as Bela Lugosi, a role that earned him an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. A story of unbridled creativity shot in glorious black and white, Ed Wood is an upbeat comedy biopic made in the spirit of Wood's cult B Films, described by many as Tim Burton's best film.

Small town Barber Ed Crane decides to escape his humdrum life by blackmailing his adulterous wife and her mob boss lover in this superb Coen brothers' Comedy-Drama. The Coens' characteristically sharp dialogue, wry humour and stylish vision combine with magnificent lead performances from Billy Bob Thornton, Frances McDormand and stunning cinematography from Roger Deakins in a story of crime and punishment. The Man Who Wasn't There is a meticulously crafted tribute to 1940's Film Noir, made in the Coens' own inimitable style and one of their finest films.
