FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF
1986, Paramount, 103 min, USA, Dir: John Hughes

If you ever wanted to know how to fake illness, revive your neurotic best friend (Alan Ruck), get your girlfriend (Mia Sara) out of school, hack your academic record or anything else that will get you out of something you don’t want to do, this is the movie for you! Matthew Broderick reigns as the king of slacker cool in Hughes’ classic teen comedy, twisting and shouting his way across Chicago.

BADLANDS
1974, Warner Bros., 95 min, USA, Dir: Terrence Malick

The first feature from visionary maverick Terrence Malick, based on the Charles Starkweather-Carol Fugate murder spree of the late 1950s, stars Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek as innocent, amoral young killers flashing across the desolate American landscape like brushfire. A violent folktale for the modern age, brilliantly written and directed by Malick, and photographed by Brian Probyn, Tak Fujimoto and Stevan Larner.
