Paper Man
(2009 Kieran Mulroney)

Struggling writer Richard Dunne (Jeff Daniels) is unhappy with his status in middle age, but his friendship with a young woman (Emma Stone) helps him make it through the day, much to the anger of his wife (Lisa Kudrow). Though that description might sound rather pedestrian, this dramedy adds a twist to the formula by introducing Richard's imaginary friend, a superhero played by Ryan Reynolds.

"Paradiset" är dokumentärfilmaren Jerzy Sladkowskis tredje film om Kirunaparet Hans och Kerstin Stralström. Vi har träffat dem förut, först i filmen "Tango, gräl och ledbesvär" (1999) där det tangobitna paret under stora diskussioner och olika lektioner i tangodansens turer slutligen hamnar i Buenos Aires för att lära sig "riktig" tango.

I den andra filmen "Lappsjukan" (2001) kommet det besök till paret i Kiruna från de två galanta och lite överåriga Don Juan-vännerna Guillermo och Juan som paret mötte i Buenos Aires. De båda männen konfronteras med Norrlands vidder, skogen, tystnaden, bastubad och surströmmingsfest hos Hans och Kerstin.

(2013 Peter Landesman)

The events surrounding President John F. Kennedy's assassination are explored from multiple perspectives in this historical drama.

The moment those shots echoed through the streets of Dallas on November 22, 1963, the entire city erupted into chaos. The leader of the free world was dead, and his security team was scrambling for clues. Film from an amateur had captured the tragedy in vivid detail, but the gunman had slipped through the FBI's grasp. Meanwhile, the doctors and nurses at Dallas' Parkland Hospital found themselves in the eye of the storm, and Vice President Lyndon Johnson was thrust into the role of Commander in Chief. In this film, we follow the events of that fateful day from the perspectives of the people who were there to witness one of the most disputed events in history firsthand.

Phantom of the Opera
(2004 Joel Schumacher)

Those who thought that smoke machines and cobwebbed candelabras were the stuff of Halloween parties and dance clubs need to think again. In Joel Schumacher's film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Broadway musical THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, these moody set devices--and countless others--make every scene an atmospheric vision of souped-up 19th-century Gothic bliss.

Christine (Emmy Rossum) is a tortured young star who is haunted by the voice of the phantom (Gerard Butler), a musician who hides in the shadows to hide a facial disfigurement, yet sings to her obsessively. Dwelling in the dark, damp chambers beneath the Paris opera house, the phantom lords over the cast and management with artistic autocracy--he writes the shows, casts them, and threatens all who disobey his plans with dramatically violent outbursts. But when his young student Christine falls for the rich and dapper Raoul (Patrick Wilson), the phantom descends into madness.

Planet of the Apes
(2001 Tim Burton)

svensk titel: Apornas Planet

In remaking this classic sci-fi horror film, director Tim Burton takes on a whopping challenge and succeeds.

Astronaut Leo Davidson (Mark Wahlberg) is part of a space station crew that, in the year 2029, is conducting experiments in training genetically engineered chimps to perform complex away missions. When Leo's chimp disappears into a worm hole, Leo unadvisedly goes after him, ending up in a parallel world in which the monkeys are the keepers and humans are traded and caged like animals.

It's a horrifying place, and the whole atmosphere, colored by Burton's direction and Rick Baker's incredible special effects makeup, is charged with terror.

(1986 Oliver Stone)

originaltitel: Platoon

In PLATOON, Oliver Stone draws on his experience as an infantryman in Vietnam to convey the brutality of guerrilla warfare: the heat of the jungle, the brushes with such wildlife as snakes and leeches, and, most powerfully, the presence of the unseen enemy.

Charlie Sheen stars as Chris, a raw recruit, or "new meat," who serves as the film's narrator. At first he wilts under the rigorous conditions of jungle life, freezes up in a fire fight, and wonders whether he'll be able to survive. But he gradually adapts and, as time goes by, begins to see that the platoon is divided into two groups.

One consists of lifers, juicers, and subintelligent whites, the other of blacks and heads. Barnes, a combat-loving burnout, is the informal leader of the lifers, and Sgt. Elias, a free spirit, leads the latter group. When the platoon takes some gruesome losses, an enraged Barnes kills some Vietnamese and orders the burning of their village, outraging the temporarily absent Elias. As the conflict between these two reaches its tragic climax, Chris must decide what he really values.

Set adrift in the vast waters of the North Atlantic for a luxury New Year's Eve party staged in the ship's magnificent ballroom, the massive ocean-liner Poseidon receives an unexpected jolt when a rogue, 100-foot wave rolls it completely upside down, forcing the surviving passengers to fight their way to safety. Trapped beneath the waterline and implored by the captain to remain in place until a rescue team arrives, the panicked survivors struggle to keep their cool as the water begins to rush in, infernos blaze all around, and a loss of electricity plunges the doomed vessel into total darkness.

Primary Colors
(1998 Mike Nichols)

In Mike Nichols's Primary Colors, America's topsy-turvy political process is viewed through the eyes of Henry Burton (Adrian Lester), an idealistic young man who is seduced into managing the presidential campaign of slick southern governor Jack Stanton (John Travolta). The mesmerized Burton immediately sets up campaign headquarters and meets his new political family: Susan Stanton (Emma Thompson), Jack's wife and partner; Richard Jemmons (Billy Bob Thornton), the sly, improbable political strategist who proudly describes himself as a redneck; Libby Holden (Kathy Bates), the fanatically loyal, overtly lesbian campaign troubleshooter who always has a big mouth and occasionally carries a big gun to match; and Daisy (Maura Tierney), the young, smart, and looking-for-love campaign media adviser. The film is based on the controversial best-selling novel by Anonymous (Joe Klein). Travolta's dead-on, thinly disguised Clinton impersonation alone is well worth seeing.

I en hopplöst bonnig småstad någonstans i Sverige bor Maja, 18 år. Hennes högsta och enda dröm är att bli skådespelare. Hon vill stå i centrum, att alla ska se henne, den vackra människa hon är inuti. Det är bara lite svårt att se. Maja är kraftigt överviktig, klumpig och socialt missanpassad.

Erika Sohlman är 28 år och dokumentärfilmare från Stockholm. När hon träffar på Maja ser hon ett utmärkt tillfälle att skapa tragikomisk underhållning på Majas bekostnad. Lycklig över att äntligen få den uppmärksamhet hon förtjänar, tar Maja tacksamt emot chansen att bli filmad.

Vi får följa Maja och hennes kamp att förverkliga sina drömmar under sista terminen på gymnasiet, delvis filmat genom Erikas dokumentärkamera.

Proposition, The
(2005 John Hillcoat)

Australian director John Hillcoat first teamed up with singer Nick Cave on 1988's disturbing GHOSTS... OF THE CIVIL DEAD, for which Cave co-authored the screenplay and took a memorably brief acting role.

The two reconvene for 2006's THE PROPOSITION, with Cave penning the screenplay and providing a soundtrack written with Dirty Three member Warren Ellis. Cave's 19th-century tale begins with the proposition of the title, as Captain Stanley (Ray Winstone) captures fugitive brothers Charley (Guy Pearce) and Mikey Burns (Richard Wilson) at a scene of bloody rape and murder. Informing Charley that he must kill his older brother, Arthur (Danny Huston), in order to be set free, Stanley drags Mikey to a decrepit jailhouse while he waits for Charley to carry out the deed.

Punishment Park
(1971 Peter Watkins)

Call it a pseudo-documentary, an outrageous piece of propaganda, perhaps even a paranoid fantasy, but one description that definitely does not apply to Punishment Park is "light entertainment."

Peter Watkins offers a chilling scenario, set in the early '70s, in which, according to an edict called the McCarran Act (which did exist, albeit in different form), the U.S. government has the right to detain (without bail, evidence, or anything resembling a fair trial) anyone who "probably will engage in certain future acts of sabotage." The detainees, most of them '60s radicals, are offered a choice between long prison sentences or three days in "Punishment Park," a scorching stretch of the Southern California desert; should they choose the latter, they will be released upon reaching an American flag planted many miles away, all the while avoiding capture (or, more likely, death) at the hands of a bunch of gung-ho cops, National Guardsmen, and other law enforcement types.

The film alternates between the "tribunals" where the radicals' fates are decided (and where the shrill hectoring and sloganeering--on both sides--come fast and furious) and the grim scenes in the desert.
