Radio Days
(1987 Woody Allen)

Gripped by wild radio stories about bloody wars and beautiful celebrities, 10-year old Joe Needleman longs for adventure and dreams of the day he'll see enemy spies, German subs - or even his sexy grade-school teacher wearing a smile (and little else). But while Joe's life is filled with fantasies about radio voices, the real people behind the voices have fantasies of their own. And as stars rise, careers fall and a nation hurtles toward the future, only one thing is absolutely certain: The days of radio may finally fade? but the magic of Joe's memories will always endure.

Raging Bull
(1980 Martin Scorsese)

svensk titel: Tjuren från Bronx

"Raging Bull" is arguably the finest work from the Scorsese and De Niro partnership. De Niro gives and amazing portrayal of a man whose animal side lurks just beneath the surface, ever ready to erupt.

Vivid and unremitting in its uncompromising brutality and honesty, the fight sequences are famed for their realism. Violent throughout, this film is a testament to Scorsese's and De Niro's skills, creating a thoroughly absorbing film about such an unlikable character. Renowned for throwing himself into the roles of his character, De Niro went on a diet to gain fifty pounds during production for the role of the faded star.

(1952 Charles Chaplin)

originaltitel: Limelight

Charles Chaplin's Limelight is a glimmering homage to what was, a proud look at a bygone entertainment era and a bittersweet tale of an artist passing the torch to a new generation.
Chaplin portrays Calvero (the "tramp comedian" per an old theatrical poster in his room), who rescues a distraught ballerina from suicide and mentors her to success. Among the film's comedy highlights is a musical routine that's anything but routine in the hands of legend Chaplin and stoney-faced Buster Keaton.

Ring: Trilogy
This edition collects the original Japanese Ring Trilogy:
Hideo Nakata's Ring, based on a novel by Koji Suzuki, was such a hit in Japan that it spawned both a sequel and prequel, along with a huge cult following. Like a horrific version of an X-Files episode, the dark, moody film makes the most out of the mysterious and the unknown. As any viewer will admit, the surreal, death-inducing video presented within the movie is extremely effective. And as Ring's tension builds, so does its sense of mounting doom. One of the creepiest motion pictures ever made, Ring culminates in an unbelievably chilling finale. Do not watch this film alone...and make sure the phone ringer is off.
