4/5 87% Battle Royale (2000) This is a heart-stopping action film, teaching us the worthy lessons of discipline, teamwork, and determination, but wrapping them up in a deliberately provocative, shockingly violent package. - BBC.com EDIT

3/5 92% Amores Perros (2001) The structure lacks purpose, the film struggles to justify its two-and-a-half-hour running time and the faint-hearted might find it a little gory. - BBC.com EDIT

3/5 94% Sous le sable (Under the Sand) (2001) Ozon's sensitive and imaginative handling of the story is matched by Charlotte Rampling's deeply melancholic and vulnerable performance. - BBC.com EDIT

3/5 86% The Last Metro (Le Dernier Métro) (1981) With few of the director's idiosyncrasies, this is not one of Truffaut's more groundbreaking films. - BBC.com EDIT

4/5 83% Waking Ned Devine (1998) The beauty of this film is its simplicity. It's good old-fashioned story-telling, following the increasingly desperate attempts of a group of lovable rogues to fill their pockets. - BBC.com EDIT
