    甫從一開首的炸彈特寫,我們便跟着計時器上的三分鐘,進入一個充滿著InevitabilityIrreversibility的黑色電影世界。《歷劫佳人》發生在墨西哥與美國兩國邊境之間,講述墨西哥緝毒員Vargas(查爾登希士頓飾)與一直受人景仰的美國警探Quinlan(奧遜威爾斯飾)合作,嘗試找出一樁汽車爆炸案的元兇。雖然Quinlan鎖定元兇為爆炸案死者女兒的秘密情人,Vargas卻思疑Quinlan為求破案而捏造犯罪證據。與此同時,毒梟黑道Grandi一家綁架了Vargas的妻子,並企圖拉攏Quinlan同流合污。到底Quinlan是正直還是沉淪的警探?兩地國境的差異,除了突顯角色們在身份、經濟和政治上的千絲萬縷,更為人性善惡定了一條模糊邊界。

  • ' Inglorious Basterds '
    — Quentin Jerome Tarantino

    A Tarantino film resists categorization and Inglorious Basterds is definitely not your run of the mill WWII film. Structured as five chapters, the story evolves around three iconic characters: the Hero, the Nazi and the Girl. Big, bold and audacious, this Category III version shown here is the only version that does the film justice. Christopher Waltz gives a kick-ass performance as the sardonic and absurd Nazi, sweeping awards at Cannes, Oscar and BAFTA.

     

     

  • ' Yossi and Jagger '
    — Eytan Fox

    The pressures and privations of military life have rarely been portrayed in as much telling detail as they are in Yossi and Jagger, a touching portrait of a group of bored Israeli soldiers stationed at a cramped army base on the Israeli-Lebanese border. Two young commanders, Yossi and Jagger carry on a passionate but discreet affair. While the carefree Jagger wants Yossi to leave the military with him so that they can start a new life together, Yossi finds it a challenge to not play by the rules. As they embark on a mission one night, it looks like their relationship also reaches a breaking point.

     

  • ' Last Chance Harvey '
    — Joel Hopkins

    This is the worst day of Harvey Shine’s life. This is the best day of his life. First he loses his job. Then he learns that his daughter rather have her stepfather giving her away at her wedding. Then, he meets Kate at a pub, and together they spend an incredible 24 hours. Last Chance Harvey unites Hoffman and Thompson (both delivering pitch-perfect performances) in a heartwarming film set against the backdrop of the London Thames. Nothing lasts forever, but when something wonderful comes along, never ever let it go.

     

  • ' Water Drops on the Burning Rocks '
    — François Ozon

    Adapted from a play written by German auteur Fassbinder when he was 19 years old Ozon has kept to a theatrical structure, dividing the film into four acts. Two men and two women enter the claustrophobic apartment where all the action takes place, but the only way one of them will be able to leave is feet first. Ozon uses constraints of a single set as an opportunity for dexterous camera work. The décor is amazingly evocative down to the smallest detail. But the impromptu dance ensemble in the last act is definitely the highlight of this nasty, provocative comedy.

     

  • ' Transamerica '
    — Duncan Tucker

    In about a week’s time, pre-operative transsexual Bree will undergo the final operation that will complete her transition from a man to a woman. Just at this critical time, she learns that she has a son named Toby, and he is in trouble. Going all the way to New York, Bree bails Toby and the two of them set off on a trip back to Los Angeles, without Toby realising that Bree is his biological father. As Bree, Felicity Huffman’s awkward mix of male/female mannerisms is so on-target. Her edgy, raw, and carefully contained performance made her winner of the Golden Globe Best Actress award.

     

     

  • ' Glamorous Youth '
    — Philip Yung

    Philip Yung’s debut, produced by Ann Hui, centres on Hong, a typical teenager facing all sort of problems a teenager would encounter: a girlfriend that’s never pleased, a father what won’t stop drinking and a mother that won’t stop watching TV. Frustrated with life, Hong seeks consolation in a mainland prostitute. Question is: does that solve his problems? Using largely improvised dialogues, Glamorous Youth exudes a refreshing degree of honesty as it explores issues of school, relationships and family in a way that teenagers can recognise and relate to.

     

     

  • ' Whatever Works '
    — Woody Allen

    In the first movie Allen has made in his native New York in five years, he teams up with another iconic New Yorker Larry David, who plays the misanthrope Boris Yellnikoff who encounters a young woman Melody and lets her into his life, even marrying her! Does the May-December romance ring a bell? But when is Allen never self-mocking? As Allen’s stand-in, Larry David never loses his own voice as the knobbly-kneed, plaid-shorts-wearing, know-it-all geezer who rather yells at than talk to people.

     

     

  • ' The Science of Sleep '
    — Michel Gondry

    French filmmaker Michel Gondry proves that his eccentric imagination remains intact even without Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) as a collaborator. This is a love story involving Stephane and Stephanie, both aspiring artists working at menial jobs. Whimsical and irrepressibly inventive, the film is dominated by its extraordinary dream sequels expressed in stop-motion animations that echo Terry Gilliam. Call it weird, but you can’t help loving it.

     

     

  • ' A Summer’s Tale '
    — Éric Rohmer

    The third film in Rohmer’s Tale of Four Seasons cycle covers a few summer weeks in Gaspard’s life and his encounters with three women: Margot who isn’t interested in more than a friendship, Solene who wants an exclusive relationship, and Lena whose ambiguous romantic attitude keeps him in a state of constant consternation. In a non-patronising way, Rohmer throws four people into a mixing pot and explores what happens when that traditional happy ending is not mandated.
