Employees Rack - Video Shift
by Guy Hazell

When it comes to videos, surely there's no better person to ask what's worth seeing than the guy who watches them all day long. This month, VideoShift's Guy Hazell gives us the skinny on what classic titles you might have missed. Hit it, big Guy.

The Picks:
1. Repulsion (Roman Polanski, 1965) I first saw this film in 1970 and was amazed what extraordinary things that could be done on film.

2. Meantime (Mike Leigh, 1983) A Young Tim Roth living in a life on the dole.

3. Un Chien Andalou (Bunuel & Dali, 1927) For such a short film, 17 minutes, it's just jam packed with images and ideas that I'm still wondering about.

4. The Hit (Stephen Frears, 1984) Another Tim Roth film with Terence Stamp as the hunted snitch who thinks he's come to terms with his life and death.

5. Time of the Gypsies (Emir Kusturica, 1989) Takes you on a wondrous journey through Yugoslavia and Italy with a boy who overcomes the odds.

6. Eraserhead (David Lynch, 1976) Some people call this a horror flick but I call it a masterpiece. "Oh! You really are ill."

7. Local Hero (Bill Forsyth, 1983) Probably a bit woosy now but it's still a nice tribute to the Ealing comedy. An American oil company want to buy a Scottish village and the locals are ready to sell.

8. Bladerunner (Ridley Scott, 1982) Well, you can't go past this one for its sheer design prowess. I think one of the first futuristic films where it rains.

9. Apocalypse Now (Francis Ford Coppola, 1979) Another obvious choice, but my 3 hour journey up the river with Martin Sheen to find Dennis and Marlon was so good I had to rewind and do the whole thing again.

10. Gay Divorcee (Mark Sandrich, 1934) If you're feeling a little down - this is the one. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers tapping it through to Cole Porter's score.

Worst Movie Ever: Sound of Music (Robert Wise, 1965) I've tried at least three times to watch this film all the way through but always end up with my head stuck down the toilet. The Wedding Singer is quickly catching up though.
