FROM DUSK TILL DAWN (1996)
1996, Dimension Films, 108 min, USA, Dir: Robert Rodriguez

Bank-robbing brothers George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino (in a rare appearance in front of the camera) head to a Mexican safehouse after killing a Texas Ranger. But safety is the last thing they find south of the border, as they make an ill-advised stop at a strip club frequented by vampires. Harvey Keitel, Juliette Lewis, Salma Hayek and Cheech Marin costar in this wildly entertaining cult horror classic.


THREE KINGS
1999, Warner Bros., 114 min, Dir: David O. Russell

This virtuoso blend of action, drama and comedy stars George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg and Ice Cube (along with noted director Spike Jonze in his acting debut) as soldiers in the waning days of the Gulf War. Discovering a map to stolen Kuwaiti gold, the men set off to steal it for themselves, only to wind up caught between Iraqi loyalists and rebels. Largely shot on transparency stock processed in color negative chemicals, THREE KINGS has a visual style that's as striking as its caustic take on warfare.


GRAVITY
2013, Warner Bros., 91 min, USA, Dir: Alfonso Cuarón

In this critically acclaimed sci-fi drama, Sandra Bullock stars as Ryan Stone, who on her first mission is stranded in space when her shuttle is destroyed by debris. The collaboration of Cuarón, cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki and a team of talented artisans create cinema that will take your breath away even if your oxygen supply is unlimited. “In depicting the fearful, beautiful reality of the space world above our world, GRAVITY reveals the glory of cinema’s future; it thrills on so many levels.” – Richard Corliss, Time
