  • In 1959, Kit (Martin Sheen), who has killed several people, and his new girlfriend Holly (Sissy Spacek), who watched him do it, are adrift in a double fantasy of crime and punishment across South Dakota and Montana. They’re playing make-believe but the bullets and bloodshed are very real. 

    The first of writer/director Terrence Malick’s three landmark films (1978’s Days of Heaven and 1998’s The Thin Red Line are the others) was inspired by a real-life 1958 Midwestern killing spree. Malick imaginatively transforms their story into a provocative study of people alienated from everyday life – but fascinating to us. Beautifully shot and memorably acted, Badlands is a spellbinding journey.

  • By any standard , director Sam Peckinah’s film The Wild Bunch, is a powerful tale of hangdog desperados bound by a code of honour, rates as one of the all-time greatest Westerns, perhaps one of the greatest of all films.

    This original Director’s Cut restores it to a complete, pristine condition unseen since its July 1969 theatrical debut. The image is letterboxed, the colour renewed, the stereo soundtrack remixed and reintegrated – all to blood-and thunder effect. Watch William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Ryan and more great stars saddle up for the roles of a lifetime.
