HOOK
1991, Sony Repertory, 144 min, USA, Dir: Steven Spielberg

Robin Williams stars as grown-up Peter Pan, now a businessman glued to his cellphone and woefully lacking a sense of magic or imagination, who is forced to face his Neverland past when his children are abducted by Captain Hook (a nefarious Dustin Hoffman). Steven Spielberg’s popcorn sequel of sorts to the J.M. Barrie classic is a rip-roaring good time, heightened by immersive set design and a colorful cast of prestige supporting players, including Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell, Bob Hoskins as Smee and Maggie Smith as Granny Wendy.


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.
