All Night Long + Q&A

Mick Harvey has his eyes set on the cool, smoky, sleazy and jazzy surrounds of London in 1962 in this rarely seen film.

Billy Liar + Q&A

Tim Rogers plays a trump card with this 1963 British classic directed by none other than multiple Oscar-winner John Schlesinger.

Dead Man + Q&A

Henry Wagons chooses this Jarmusch classic with a searing score by Neil Young, starring Johnny Depp and an A-1 cast of misfits.

Dawn of the Dead + Q&A

The Midnight Juggernauts go all the way with George A Romero's horror/splatter classic, with a wild synth soundtrack from Goblin.
