Blue Velvet, from the man of the moment, David Lynch. The underbelly of smalltown America, and then some.

An American Werewolf in London, one of the great transformation horror films.

To Live and Die in LA. The underrated actioner by William Friedkin. What great fun this is.

Midnight Run. For some of us, the ultimate buddy movie.

The ‘Burbs. The funnest suburban analysis with an innovative score by Jerry Goldsmith.

A Monkee produced, Iggy Pop sings, Alex Cox directed. Repo Man. The epitome of cult.

Michael Mann. Tangerine Dream. Thief.

The best detention ever. The Breakfast Club.

And you thought your home town was weird … The Lost Boys.

An extraordinary Vietnam film with a score by the incomparable Philip Glass. Hamburger Hill.
