Sands of Iwo Jima
(1949 Allan Dwan)

svenskt titel: Nationens Hjältar

In a role that defined John Wayne in the American mythos, the Duke earned an Oscar nod for portraying Sgt. John Stryker, a tough-as-nails Marine charged with turning recruits into fighting men during World War II. Though his troops and peers question his harsh methods, Stryker's methods prove useful on the Iwo Jima battlefields. Director Allan Dwan punctuates the drama with real combat footage and a hypnotizing flag-raising scene on Mount Suribachi.

Set in Texas in the 1950s, SECONDHAND LIONS tells the touching story of Walter (Haley Joel Osment), a shy teenager sent to stay with two estranged uncles for the summer.

The one fact about the men, of which Walter's mom is only too aware, is that they appear to be extremely wealthy, having stashed over one million dollars in cash at an undisclosed location. After initially balking at Walter's inherent shyness and nervous disposition, the two men soon warm to the child, and proceed to tell him some incredible tales of their adventures.

Sentiment
(2003 Tomás Hejtmánek)

Documentary filmmaker Tomáš Hejtmánek's feature-length debut Sentiment is something special, not only because it's a debut, but also because of it's subject: acclaimed Czechoslovakian filmmaker František Vláčil. Constructed from taped interviews recorded shortly before the director's death and featuring contributions from actors František Velecký and Ivan Palúch (Marketa Lazarová), Jan Kačer (The Valley of the Bees) and Emma Černá (Adelheid), shot by longtime Vláčil collaborator, cinematographer Jaromír Kačer, this is a heartfelt and warm tribute to a well-respected and much admired man, expressed through interview material and the odd clip, common practice in television and DVD documentary portraits.

Shot in the Dark, A
(1964 Blake Edwards)

svensk titel: Skott i Mörkret

If you could choose only one Pink Panther movie, your best bet would be A Shot in the Dark. This time Inspector Clouseau is accidentally assigned to track a gorgeous, high-profile murder suspect (Elke Sommer), who is connected to several Parisian murders by circumstantial evidence. Believing her to be innocent when all clues indicate otherwise, Clouseau captures his suspect and releases her several times, to the dismay of Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Herbert Lom), but the plot here is arguably beside the point. As a bumbling variation of Hercule Poirot, Sellers steals the show, refining Clouseau's persona--including his outrageous karate duels with his tenacious valet, Cato (Bert Kwouk)--and nonchalantly waltzing through a plot involving numerous disguises and at least a dozen murders.

Slacker
(1991 Richard Linklater)

"Slacker", directed by Richard Linklater, presents a day in the life of a loose-knit Austin, Texas, subculture populated by eccentric and overeducated young people. Shooting on 16 mm for a mere $3,000, writer-producer-director Linklater and his crew of friends threw out any idea of a traditional plot, choosing instead to create a tapestry of over a hundred characters, each as compelling as the last. Slacker is a prescient look at an emerging generation of aggressive nonparticipants, and one of the key films of the American independent film movement of the 1990s.

Straight out of Brooklyn
(1991 Matty Rich)

As powerful as contemporary inner-city films such as Do the Right Thing and Boyz N the Hood were, the tale of hopelessness in the projects feels even more achingly real on a lower budget. Such is Straight Out of Brooklyn, the remarkable debut from teenage writer/director Matty Rich, so gritty that it looks like a documentary. Shot on a shoestring with a cast of all first-time actors, including the director in a supporting role, the film gets right inside the moments of crisis in a poor African-American family. George T. Odom is menacing as the drunken father, a ranting lout who frequently leaves the family's kitchenware in a pile of rubble when he gets liquored up. His painful ravings are scary, but the real hurt exists within the pregnant silences, as his family waits out the storm, too obedient to do anything but cower. Although the sense of futility dominates, Odom's infrequent happier moments with his teenage son (Lawrence Gilliard Jr.) hint at the functional bonds that could exist between them all if they could indeed get "straight out of Brooklyn." The actors all give naturalistic performances, and the young actors in particular (Gilliard, Rich, and Mark Malone) effectively translate their own experiences to generate a sense of youthful bravado and enthusiasm. Rich's point is well made: there's just so little for the characters to be enthusiastic about.

Gary Gray directs this biopic about the rise to stardom for the act that earned the moniker of "The World's Most Dangerous Group", featuring Ice Cube's son O'Shea Jackson Jr. playing the role of his father, Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre, and Jason Mitchell as the late Eazy-E.
