8½ Women
(1999 Peter Greenaway)

svensk titel: 8½ Kvinnor

Writer-director Peter Greenaway delivers this audacious tale about a middle-aged father (John Standing) and his playboy son (Matthew Delamere), who cope with the loss of a beloved wife and mother by cultivating their sexual pursuits. They remodel their home into a 24-hour bordello, furnishing it with a flock of female concubines (among them, Toni Collette and Amanda Plummer). But when the ladies assert themselves, the gents best beware.

Eddie Murphy: Raw
This audacious concert film rubbed some people the wrong way upon its release in 1987, but there's no denying that between Murphy's more insensitive bits about women and gay men is some of his most inspired material.

While the young comedian indulges an unattractive homophobia and rants about the sexual manipulativeness of all females, he makes up for it with an amazing story about being chided by Bill Cosby for obscene humor and does a great impression of Mr. T falling under the spell of a Jedi mind trick. The best stuff comes deep into the show, particularly a long tale of being pressured into a fight at a club, resulting in a phone call to Murphy's drunk father, the latter in the middle of a verbal attack on his wife. The scene is genuinely horrifying and funny, testament to Murphy's early reputation as heir to Richard Pryor's mercilessly autobiographical brilliance.

El Dorado
(1966 Howard Hawks)

Legendary producer-director Howard Hawks teams with two equally legendary stars, John Wayne and Robert Mitchum, in this classic Western drama. Mitchum plays to perfection an alcoholic but gutsy sheriff who relentlessly battles the dark side of the wild West, ruthless cattle barons and crooked "businessmen". 'The Duke' gives an equally adept performance as the sheriff's old friend who knows his way around a gunfight.
