1987. UK. Dir: Bruce Robinson. With Richard E. Grant. 107 min.
Loosely derived from the director’s recollection of his student years in the 1960s, this British cult classic portrays two unemployed actors who spend their days dodging rent bills and drinking.

2017. Chile. Dir: Sebastia?n Lelio. With Daniela Vega. 104 min.
A transgender waitress who moonlights as a nightclub singer must confront the sudden death of her much-older boyfriend, and the suspicion of his surviving family towards her.

1989. USA. Dir: Spike Lee. With Ossie Davis, Danny Aiello. 120 min.
In this panorama of a predominantly Black community in Brooklyn, Lee himself plays a delivery man for an Italian-American pizzeria owner. Entangled in the looming racial tensions (and confrontational shot/reverse shots), he soon finds himself at the center of an escalating conflict on the hottest day of the year.
1963. Japan. Dir: Akira Kurosawa. With Toshiro Mifune. 143 min. 35mm print.
A son of a chauffeur mistakenly gets kidnapped instead of that of a wealthy shoe executive (Mifune); the latter must decide whether or not to abide by the kidnapper’s request or risk the life of his employee’s child. Kurosawa explores the dark underbelly of Japan in this intricately staged and framed crime drama.
