DON’T MAKE WAVES
1967, Warner Bros., 97 min, USA, Dir: Alexander Mackendrick

Wonderfully sly, wistful satire of Malibu beach culture in the ’60s from the director of SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS. East Coast schlep Tony Curtis reinvents himself as a sun-tanned swimming pool salesman, amid a carnival of muscle boys, surfer girls, astrologers, skydivers and more. One of the great lost comedies of the ’60s - as good as THE LOVED ONE or LORD LOVE A DUCK. With Sharon Tate.


QUANTUM OF SOLACE
2008, MGM/Park Circus, 106 min, UK, USA, Dir: Marc Forster

The most recent installment of the James Bond franchise picks up right where CASINO ROYALE left off, with 007 (Daniel Craig) out for revenge against the men who killed his lover. The shadowy Quantum organization appears to be involved, and when Bond starts to track down its agents, the trail leads to Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), an environmentalist with an interest in the Bolivian countryside that's hardly benevolent, and Camille Montes (Olga Kurylenko), the man's lover, who is also on a mission of revenge. Yet another huge hit, the 22nd Bond film - the next, SKYFALL, is on deck for release later this year - further raised the bar for action sequences with several hair-raising chases over air, land and water.


TOMORROW NEVER DIES
1997, MGM/Park Circus, 119 min, UK, USA, Dir: Roger Spottiswoode

Released in Europe only in 70mm, the explosive, techno-packed TOMORROW NEVER DIES finally returns the Bond series to top form, with dashing Pierce Brosnan as Agent 007 battling media mastermind Jonathan Pryce, bedding ex-flame Teri Hatcher and sparring with fabulous Hong Kong action star Michelle Yeoh!
