THE FABULOUS BAKER BOYS
1989, 20th Century Fox, 114 min, USA, Dir: Steve Kloves

Brothers Frank and Jack (Beau Bridges and Jeff Bridges) have carved out a career playing hackneyed jazz duets on matching grand pianos in night clubs. When they begin to see a downturn in the number of gigs they can get, they resort to the tried-and-true “sex sells” technique and hire eccentric, irreverent ex-escort Susie Diamond (Michelle Pfeifer) to sing as part of their routine. But even when the three-person act becomes a hit, the personal issues Frank and Jack have been harboring against each other – and Jack and Susie’s mutual attraction - threaten to break up the group’s newfound success.


STOP MAKING SENSE
1984, Palm Pictures, 88 min, USA, Dir: Jonathan Demme

Jonathan Demme revolutionized the art of shooting rock concerts with this innovative masterpiece about Talking Heads, considered by many critics to be the best concert film of all time.


PINK FLOYD – THE WALL
1982, Warner Bros., 99 min, USA, Dir: Alan Parker

Director Alan Parker's vivid film interpretation of the British rock combo's classic concept album THE WALL fuses curious fantasy with dark, tragic drama on an epic scale. Antihero Pink is beaten down by life from his earliest childhood days in WWII Britain, and despite his rise to rock-star fame, he continues to build a “wall” around himself. The film makes innovative use of sets, costumes and special effects, imbuing the movie with a bizarre surrealism worthy of Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dali. Both disturbing and bedazzling, PINK FLOYD: THE WALL is a must-see film for any music lover. With Bob Geldof, Bob Hoskins.
