Rent it if: You've read the book I guess.

And if you liked: Less Than Zero, Requiem for a Dream, The Rules of Attraction

Review: Falling ever so slightly behind on some emotion, it still remains a powerful, mesmerising and expertly executed film.

Go see it if: You've been to the toilet first. Seriously, miss the wrong five minutes of this and you'll be lost.

And if you liked: Memento, The Matrix, Total Recall, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Whatever Works

Director: Woody Allen


Review: Well performed and has a few moments particularly towards the end but is mostly quite tedious and weak.

And if you liked: Manhattan, Annie Hall (it's nowhere near as good as these, but it bears resemblance)
