Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
Dir: Roman Polanski
Dedicated to his late wife, director Roman Polanski’s adaptation of Thomas Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles is both luminous and tinted with sorrow. Nastassja Kinski stars in the title role as a Victorian-era farm girl, tragically caught between a lustful aristocrat (Leigh Lawson) and the man who really loves her (Peter Firth). Nominated for six Academy Awards, the film won Oscars for Best Art Direction, Costume Design and Cinematography.
Dir: Francis Ford Coppola
Reluctant assassin Martin Sheen leads a motley crew of soldiers upriver to find unhinged and off-the-map colonel Marlon Brando in director Francis Ford Coppola's wildly surreal Vietnam epic. Adapted from Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, and co-starring - among many others - Robert Duvall and Dennis Hopper.
Dir: Steven Spielberg
Director Steven Spielberg and screenwriter Tom Stoppard created one of their most ambitious and acclaimed works with this adaptation of J.G. Ballard's autobiographical novel. A young Christian Bale stars as a boy growing up in Shanghai, where he lives a sheltered life until the Japanese invasion separates him from his parents and changes his life forever. In Spielberg's hands, the result is a character study that is epic and intimate in equal parts, with a stirring score by John Williams.
