AFTER HOURS
1985, Warner Bros., 97 min, USA, Dir: Martin Scorsese

Manhattan becomes a surreal dreamscape of bizarre terror in Martin Scorsese's film about an ordinary guy who agrees to a late-night date with an attractive but alarmingly disturbed woman (Rosanna Arquette). Dead bodies, strange sculptresses and an incensed ice cream truck mob are all part of the protagonist's weird journey into the dark and neglected hours of the morning.


THE DEPARTED
2006, Warner Bros., 151 min, USA/Hong Kong, Dir: Martin Scorsese

Inspired by Hong Kong film INFERNAL AFFAIRS, this riveting drama of divided loyalties will keep you guessing until the very last shot. In an effort to break Boston’s Irish-American mob, Billy Costigan (Leonardo DiCaprio) goes undercover as part of crime boss Frank Costello’s (Jack Nicholson) crew. What he doesn’t know is that Costello has his own mole (Matt Damon) working in the police force. Winner of four Academy Awards, including Best Picture and a long-overdue Best Director statuette for Scorsese.


THE BROOD

According to director David Cronenberg, this is “…my version of KRAMER VS. KRAMER,” a film that “…had a kind of happy ending. Not my version of that situation.” Disturbed Nola's (Samantha Eggar) suppressed anger at having had her child taken away causes her to become pregnant again - but this time, something horrible and homicidal grows inside her womb. With Oliver Reed.
