    The Admirable Crichton (Film) Film icon 3 star rating U certificate
    Lewis Gilbert's classic comedy, based on JM Barrie's play, stars Kenneth More as the admirable Crichton, butler to Lord Loam and his family. When, while cruising in the South Seas, they are shipwrecked on a desert island, his Lordship takes command but it slowly emerges that Crichton possesses the skills for survival. As the master/servant roles are reversed, even romance is turned upside down; but surely rescue will reassert the status quo?

    Throne of Blood (Film) Film icon 4 star rating PG certificate
    Akira Kurosawa's classic drama is an atmospheric, pared-down reworking of Shakespeare's Macbeth, set in the feudal Japan of the Middle Ages. Toshiro Mifune stars as Taketoki Washizu, a distinguished warrior who, in an encounter with a mysterious woman in a woodland glade, learns that he is fated for glory and power, but his rise to the top will be fleeting. He's subsequently goaded by his ambitious wife Lady Asaji Washizu into fulfilling the prophecy by becoming lord of the lofty, cloud-shrouded castle that dominates the landscape. It's a tale of ruthless assassination, and not only for those who block his path. In addition to being another example of Kurosawa's innovation and mastery of the medium, Throne of Blood was also said to have been American poet TS Eliot's favourite film. First play on Film4.

But, after a series of mishaps, the unlucky pair are abandoned and forgotten, only to wake up 500 years later in a world populated by a universally dumb society ruled by halfwits.

But when a hit goes wrong thanks to Louie, Ghost Dog is the target and now is the time for the Samurai lore to come to the fore to ensure his survival.

    Marley and Me (Film) Film icon 4 star rating PG certificate
    The Devil Wears Prada director David Frankel's light comedy-drama - based on a best-selling autobiography - stars Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston as two journalists who welcome an unruly dog into their lives. Relocating to Florida, newly-weds John and Jenny Grogan end up working for rival newspapers, with Jenny landing the more high-profile job. When she starts to get broody, one of John's colleagues suggests they see how they cope with a puppy before trying for a baby, so John picks a cute yellow Labrador retriever, Marley, as a gift for Jenny. Marley is a double-edged sword: he's an untrainably anarchic source of destruction; but he also gives John the material for a wry newspaper column, which improves his standing and the paper's circulation figures. The film follows the Grogans' marriage, through good times and bad, with Marley providing comic relief, and the leads turning in convincing, heart-warming performances.

    The Big Blockade (Film) Film icon U certificate
    This World War II propaganda piece marked the directorial debut of Charles Frend and tells, through interweaving strands, the tale of Britain's blockade of Axis powers and its effects on Germany's economy and morale. Produced by the Ealing Studios for the Ministry of Information, it was originally intended as a two-reel documentary dramatising the work of the Ministry of Economic Warfare. However, Ealing co-funded the film and built it up to feature length, incorporating fictionalised material alongside the documentary footage. The strong cast of British actors includes Michael Redgrave, John Mills, Michael Rennie and Will Hay. Alfred Drayton and Robert Morley appear as somewhat improbable Nazis, in roles that, given its period and the film's brief, are inevitably caricatured. The commentary was spoken by Frank Owen, who was then editor of the Evening Standard.

    Director Steve McQueen's Film4-funded award-winning drama focuses on the 1981 hunger strikes by Republican prisoners in Northern Ireland. Michael Fassbender plays Bobby Sands, one of a group of prisoners who first 'took to the blanket' with a 'dirty protest' in pursuit of their claims for recognition as political prisoners. Sands then became the first one of the group to embark on a hunger strike, which would ultimately end in his death. McQueen's film captures the reek of the urine-flooded, excrement-smeared cells, the intransigence of both sides and, at centre of the film, uses a bravura extended dialogue between Sands and Father Moran to question whether the strike and its resultant deaths would have any effect at all.

    John Travolta and Denzel Washington star in Tony Scott's remake of the 1974 thriller. It's a day the passengers on a New York subway train are unlikely to forget. And it's one that could rescue the professional life of subway employee Walter Garber, whose glittering career has been derailed by allegations of corruption. Garber is languishing on duty as a train dispatcher when all hell breaks loose after one of the Lexington Avenue line trains is hijacked by a gang led by the supremely self-assured, dispassionately ruthless Ryder. Ryder issues a demand for $10m and makes it clear that he won't hesitate to kill anyone who gets in his way. Garber and NYPD hostage negotiator Lieutenant Camonetti attempt to get to grips with the crisis but, as events progress, suspicions arise as to whether there's more to the hijacking than first meets the eye. Also starring James Gandolfini as New York's mayor and Luis Guzman as a disgruntled subway worker who has joined Ryder's gang.
