Don't Look Now Voyager image

Don't Look Now

Voted the greatest British film of all time by Time Out, Nic Roeg's 1973 thriller is a perfect haunting horror but is also an emotionally devastating portrait of a marriage, with Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland struggling with the loss of their child.

Never Look Away Voyager image

Never Look Away

Loosely based on the life and work of Gerhard Richter, a talented, avant garde painter of exceptional skill, Never Look Away examines the effects of Nazism on Germany and the post-war fallout on a literally divided nation.

Exploring the psyche of a nation through the prism of one artistic individual, Never Look Away poses questions over its 3 hour runtime as to how pain can be channelled into art.

Transit Voyager image

Transit

An audacious concept lies at the heart of the new drama by acclaimed German filmmaker Christian Petzold (Barbara, Phoenix).

Transposed from a 1942 novella to a modern day setting, it finds a group of migrants and refugees borderless, awaiting visas and in hope of a new beginning.

Georg has taken on the identity of a dead writer and with his new documents plans to start a life in Mexico.

Five Seasons the Gardens of Piet Oudolf Voyager image

Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf

"Plants are characters I compose with and I put them on the stage," says landscape gardener Piet Oudolf. In this stunning documentary, we are invited upon that stage to contemplate his amazing gardens and philosophy.

From his transformation of the Manhattan High Line gardens, to desert wildflowers in West Texas and post-industrial forests in Pennsylvania, this is a rich, satisfying portrait of a little-understood, life-enriching art.

Bait Voyager image

Bait

This singularly beautiful debut film tells the story of a Cornish fishing village threatened by the rising tide of gentrification.

Fisherman Martin seethes as his childhood home is bought and renovated into a tourist rental, and his brother uses their fishing boat as a pleasure cruiser.

However, this is no simplistic tale of the old ways dying, and we are soon drawn into a tangled net of resentment, class and capitalism.

The Third Man

Reissued for it's 70th anniversary, Carol Reed's murky film nior The Third Man has a just claim as one of best British films of all time. Joseph Cotten plays pulp writer Holly Martins, who is brought to the city by a promise of work by childhood friend Harry Lime.

But on arrival, it turns out Lime has died, and had made a bad name for himself. Yet there are darker truths hiding in the shadows, ones Holly risks his life in shedding light on.
