Sleeper (1973)

Dir. Woody Allen

The plot involves the adventures of the owner of a health food store who is cryogenically frozen in 1973 and defrosted 200 years later in an ineptly led police state. A madcap sci-fi parody made as a tribute to comedians Groucho Marx and Bob Hope.

The Pendragon Society’s 1000 Greatest Films (2019) 860-841


860. Tinker, Tailer, Soldier, Spy (2011) Dir. Tomas Alfredson, 127 mins.

Based on the classic 1974 novel of the same name, Alfredson’s visually stylish espionage thriller is set in London in the early 1970s and follows the hunt for a Soviet double agent at the top of the British secret service. The outstanding Gary Oldman leads a high quality ensemble cast as John Le Carre’s British spy George Smiley, formerly disgraced, but brought back by MI-6 to lead the hunt. While some will dislike the slow pace and find the narrative structure difficult to follow, the film displays a brilliant sense of time and place that combined with the atmosphere of Cold War paranoia builds to a satisfying and compelling finale.

859. My Left Foot (1989) Dir. Jim Sheridan, 103 mins.

It tells the story of Christy Brown, an Irishman born with cerebral palsy, who grew up in a poor, working-class family and despite only having control of his left foot became a writer and artist. Propelled by outstanding performances, particularly the astonishing Daniel Day-Lewis, My Left Foot is both a gritty and inspiring film.

858. The Killing Fields (1984) Dir. Roland Joffe, 141 mins.

The Killing Fields is a harrowing biographical drama about the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia, which is based on the experiences of two journalists, Cambodian Dith Pran and American Sydney Schanberg.

857. Gravity (2013) Dir. Alfonso Cuaron, 91 mins.

It stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as American astronauts who are stranded in space after the mid-orbit destruction of their space shuttle, and follows their subsequent attempt to return to Earth.

856. Far From Heaven (2002) Dir. Todd Haynes, 107 mins.

Julianne Moore plays the seemingly perfect 50s housewife who’s life begins to fall apart in Haynes homage to the films of Douglas Sirk. Shot and designed to re-create the atmosphere of a 1950s melodrama the film is filled with intelligent writing and some heart breaking performances.

855. First Man (2018) Dir. Damien Chazelle, 141 mins.

Based on the book First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong by James R. Hansen, the film stars Ryan Gosling as Armstrong, alongside Claire Foy as his wife and follows the years leading up to the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon in 1969. The film’s emotional core comes just as much from Armstrong dealing with the loss of a child (7 years before the lunar landing), as it does his remarkable achievement as an astronaut. The film features some brilliant direction, outstanding performances from Gosling and Foy, a haunting musical score and  an extraordinarily powerful Moon landing sequence.  However, the film was not without detractors and its choice to not depict the planting of the American flag on the lunar surface led critics and politicians from both political parties to debate the film’s stance on patriotism.

854. The Hour-Glass Sanatorium (1973) Dir. Wojciech Has, 124 mins.

The story follows a young Jewish man who visits his father in a mystical sanatorium where time does not behave normally.

853. Performance (1970) Dir. Donald Cammell, Nicolas Roeg, 105 mins.

Acclaimed for its influential cinematic techniques, Performance stars James Fox as a violent and ambitious London gangster who, after carrying out an unordered killing, goes into hiding at the home of a reclusive rock star (Mick Jagger). A weird and memorable psychological crime thriller that’s full of ideas and good performances.

852. All That Jazz (1979) Dir. Bob Fosse, 123 mins.

With a screenplay by Robert Alan Aurthur and Fosse, All That Jazz is a semi-autobiographical fantasy based on aspects of Fosse’s life and career as a dancer, choreographer and director. It’s an irreverent send up of show business conventions and, as well as being superbly shot, features a brilliantly energised central performance by Roy Scheider.

851. Mad Max (1979) Dir. George Miller, 93 mins.

Financed privately rather than by the failing Australian Film Commission this violent dystopian action movie was a big international hit and changed the way Australian films were funded in favour of a more commercial ethos rather than a cultural one. The film also launched the career of future Hollywood star and director Mel Gibson, who plays a vengeful policeman embroiled in a feud with a vicious motorcycle gang. Now lauded for its visceral power and strong direction the film initially polarised critics.

850. True Grit (2010) Dir. Joel & Ethan Coen, 110 mins.

The Coen brothers revisionist western is a more faithful adaptation of Charles Portis’s novel than the 1969 version starring John Wayne. The film follows 14 year-old farm girl Mattie Ross who hires Rooster Cogburn, a boozy, trigger-happy US Marshall to help her track down and apprehend an outlaw named Tom Chaney who murdered her father. A solid, occasionally moving character study with a particularly likeable performance by Jeff Bridges as Cogburn.

849. The Straight Story (1999) Dir. David Lynch, 112 mins.

The film is based on the true story of Alvin Straight’s 1994 journey across Iowa and Wisconsin on a lawn mower to visit his estranged brother Lyle, who has suffered a stroke, and hopefully make amends before he dies. The slow pace may well bore younger viewers but The Straight Story is a lyrically profound work that features a perfect performance by Richard Farnsworth.

848. Husbands and Wives (1992) Dir. Woody Allen, 108 mins.

Released after Woody Allen and Mia Farrow’s relationship had come to an end, Husbands and Wives was their final movie together. Filmed by Carlo Di Palma with a handheld camera and featuring documentary style one on ones with the characters, the film follows Gabe Roth (Allen) and his wife Judy (Farrow) who are taken aback by the casual announcement from their best friends, an upper-middle class Manhattan couple (the excellent Judy Davis and Sydney Pollack), that they are splitting up. Soon Gabe and Judy are analysing their own marriage. One of Allen’s best, it’s bleak but yet compelling.

847. Howl’s Moving Castle (2004) Dir. Hayao Miyazaki, 119 mins.

Loosely based on the novel of the same name by British author Diane Wynne Jones, the story follows Sophie Hatter who is a responsible and beautiful girl who runs her late fathers hat shop in a fictional kingdom where both magic and early 20th century technology are prevalent. On her way to the bakery to visit her sister she encounters, by chance, a mysterious wizard named Howl and gets caught up in his resistance to fighting for the king in a war with another kingdom. Influenced by Miyazaki’s opposition to the United States invasion of Iraq in 2003 the film is thematically different to the book and considers the destructiveness of war and the value of compassion. Although the narrative begins to lose focus by the second half this is still an imaginative fantasy that becomes more and more emotionally intense.

846. Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) Dir. Blake Edwards, 115 mins.

The film features Audrey Hepburn’s most iconic role as Holly Golightly the naive and eccentric socialite. The future A-Team star George Peppard plays the lonely neighbour and writer who becomes enchanted with her. The overall charm (particularly the cat named ‘Cat’) will allow most viewers to forgive the dafter parts.

845. Shakespeare In Love (1998) Dir. John Madden, 123 mins.

The film depicts an imaginary love affair involving Viola de Lesseps (Gwyneth Paltrow) and playwright William Shakespeare (Joseph Fiennes) while he was writing Romeo and Juliet. Winner of seven Oscars, including beating out Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan for Best Picture, the film is enchanting and witty and Paltrow, with her perfect English accent, makes for the ultimate muse for Fiennes’s passionate bard.

844. Sleeper (1973) Dir. Woody Allen, 138 mins.

The plot involves the adventures of the owner of a health food store who is cryogenically frozen in 1973 and defrosted 200 years later in an ineptly led police state. A madcap sci-fi parody made as a tribute to comedians Groucho Marx and Bob Hope.

843. Oliver! (1968) Dir. Carol Reed, 153 mins.

Based on the stage musical, with music and lyrics by Lionel Bart, and Charles Dicken’s novel, the story centres on orphan Oliver Twist, born in a workhouse and sold into apprenticeship with an undertaker. After escaping, Twist travels to London, where he meets The Artful Dodger, a member of a gang of juvenile pickpockets led by the elderly criminal, Fagin. Winning the best film Oscar in 1968, Oliver! is triumph of great characters, music and production design and was a fitting swan-song for The Third Man director Carol Reed. The British Film Institute ranked Oliver! 77th in their list of the greatest British films of the 20th century.

842. Shaun of the Dead (2004) Dir. Edgar Wright, 99 mins.

A British horror comedy starring Simon Pegg as Shaun, a man attempting to get some kind of focus in his life as he deals with girlfriend and family problems while also having to cope with an apocalyptic zombie uprising. Not just a parody of George A. Romero and zombie films in general, Shaun of the Dead is full of wonderful witty satire and plenty of gore.

841. La Belle Noiseuse (1991) Dir. Jacques Rivette, 237 mins.

A reclusive famous painter, Frenhofer (Michel Piccoli), lives quietly with his wife and former model (Jane Birkin) in a rambling château in rural Languedoc-Roussillon. When a young artist visits him with his girlfriend, Marianne (Emmanuelle Béart), Frenhofer is inspired to commence work once more on a painting he long ago abandoned, La Belle Noiseuse, using Marianne as his model.



The Greatest Sci-Fi Films of All Time By the Online Film Critics Society

In 2002, 115 members of the international association of the leading Internet-based cinema journalists were polled to produce the top 100 Sci-Fi Films of the Past 100 Years list. A terrific list on the whole but it’s interesting to see films like Highlander, the disappointing Until the End of the World and The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension and yet no place for David Lynch’s Dune which despite its obvious flaws is still a visually interesting piece.

The Pendragon Society’s 1000 Greatest Films (2018) 980-961


980. Z (1969) Dir. Costa-Gavras, 127 mins.

One of the most highly praised political films of the post-war era, Costa-Gavros’s thriller presents a thinly fictionalised account of the events surrounding the assassination of democratic Greek politician Grigoris Lambrakis in 1963. It’s fast paced action cinema and a satirical attack on Greece’s military junta who ruled the country from 1967 to 1974.

979. Raising Arizona (1987) Dir. Joel & Ethan Coen, 94 mins.

Nicholas Cage is a store robber who decides to go straight if Holly Hunter’s police officer will marry him. Their new life together hits problems when they find they can’t have children and trying to break out of their ensuing depression, they decide to snatch one of a furniture store owners recently born quintuplets. There’s some fantastic and inventive madcap humour and it’s not hard to feel sympathy for the hapless kidnappers.

978. Gallipoli (1981) Dir. Peter Weir, 110 mins.

Weir’s first world war drama follows two young men from rural Western Australia who enlist in the army and are sent to the peninsula of Gallipoli. Whilst there are historical inaccuracies the film is a devastating anti-war piece and a moving tribute to those Anzac soldiers who found themselves fighting the futile Battle of the Nek.

977. Far From Heaven (2002) Dir. Todd Haynes, 107 mins.

Julianne Moore plays the seemingly perfect 50s housewife who’s life begins to fall apart in Haynes homage to the films of Douglas Sirk. Shot and designed to re-create the atmosphere of a 1950s melodrama the film is filled with intelligent writing and some heart breaking performances.

976. The Long Riders (1980) Dir. Walter Hill, 99 mins.

Made particularly notable for the casting of four sets of real life brothers, Hill’s western is a visually authentic and yet mythic retelling of the legends surrounding the James-Younger gang.

975. Black Swan (2010) Dir. Darren Aronofsky, 103 mins.

Psychological horror film that revolves around a production of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake by a prestigious New York City ballet company. Natalie Portman plays the ballerina who is consumed by a love of dance but loses her grip on reality when she faces competition for the main part from a new arrival. Overly melodramatic but gripping none the less, Black Swan is a technical marvel and has some wonderful performances.

974. The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner (1962) Dir. Tony Richardson, 104 mins.

Based on a short story by Alan Silitoe (who also wrote the screenplay), the film stars Tom Courtenay as an ‘angry young man’ sentenced to borstal for burgling a bakery. He manages to gain privileges in the institution through his prowess as a long-distance runner. A British New Wave classic with a provocative stance on consumerism and the English class system.

973. Where the Wild Things Are (2009) Dir. Spike Jonze, 101 mins.

Spike Jonze’s adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s classic picture book centres on a lonely eight-year-old boy named Max who sails away to an island inhabited by creatures known as the “Wild Things,” who declare Max their king. It may be too dark for some, but Where the Wild Things Are is a gorgeous vision of childhood imagination.

972. Shutter Island (2010) Dir. Martin Scorsese, 138 mins.

Leonardo DiCaprio stars as U.S. Marshal Edward “Teddy” Daniels who is investigating a psychiatric facility on Shutter Island after one of the patients goes missing. This psychological thriller doesn’t rank with Scorsese’s best work but it’s still cleverly constructed and boasts some great performances.

971. Sleeper (1973) Dir. Woody Allen, 138 mins.

The plot involves the adventures of the owner of a health food store who is cryogenically frozen in 1973 and defrosted 200 years later in an ineptly led police state. A madcap sci-fi parody made as a tribute to comedians Groucho Marx and Bob Hope.

970. Donnie Brasco (1997) Dir. Mike Newell, 127 mins.

Johnny Depp stars in the true story of an FBI undercover agent who infiltrated the Mafia Bonanno crime family in New York City during the 1970s, under the alias Donnie Brasco. A tense  and compelling character study by Mike Newell that’s bolstered by a strong performance by Al Pacino as the ageing hitman that Brasco befriends.

969. Early Spring (1956) Dir. Yasujiro Ozu, 144 mins.

Ryo Ikebe plays the married businessman who escapes the monotony of married life and his work at a fire brick manufacturing company by beginning an affair with a fellow office worker. Ozu’s family drama manages to steer away from being a depressive tale of marital discord and is ultimately a hopeful film filled with humour and sensitivity.

968. Videodrome (1983) Dir. David Cronenberg, 89 mins.

Cronenberg’s sci-fi horror follows the CEO of a small UHF television station who stumbles upon a broadcast signal featuring extreme violence and torture. An audacious piece of film making that starts cleverly before veering off into grotesque imagery and narrative confusion.

967. Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988) Dir. Robert Zemeckis, 104 mins.

The film is set in Hollywood during the late 1940s, where animated characters and people co-exist. Bob Hoskins plays a private detective who must exonerate “Toon” Roger Rabbit, who is accused of murdering a wealthy businessman. Groundbreaking for its mix of live action and animation the film is also very funny and surprisingly touching.

966. Bandit Queen (1994) Dir. Shekhar Kapur, 119 mins.

With its release delayed by Indian censors for sex and violence Kapur’s tale of epic revenge was always going to be controversial. Seema Biswas is the infamous Bandit Queen, Phoolan Devi, in a visceral powerful film that broke through to western mainstream cinema.

965. Vagabond (1985) Dir. Agnes Varda, 105 mins.

Sandrine Bonnaire stars as a young vagabond who wanders through French wine country one winter. A stark and strikingly beautiful film that becomes tragically haunting.

964. Jerry Maguire (1996) Dir. Cameron Crowe, 139 mins.

Tom Cruise stars as the title character who has a life-altering epiphany about his role as a sports agent and then writes a mission statement about dishonesty in sports management and how he’d like the industry to work. The then relatively unknown Renee Zellweger is the fascinating romantic interest but it’s Cuba Gooding Jr. who steals the show as a brash American football player.

963. The Cotton Club (1984) Dir. Francis Ford Coppola, 127 mins.

It’s perhaps most notable as one of a number of 80s big budget films made by leading white directors that incorporated black themes and images into mainstream cinema. Even if the tale of Gregory Hines dancer is no more than a backdrop to the story of Richard Gere’s cornet player, and his troubles with gangster Dwight Schultz (James Remar), it shows how far things had moved on. The film was another troubled production for Coppola and unlike Apocalypse Now he couldn’t quite pull the rabbit out of the hat.

962. The Mission (1986) Dir. Roland Joffe, 126 mins.

It remains notable for its stunning Ennio Morricone soundtrack but also as one of the big budget films that’s failure at the box-office brought about the effective end of production company Goldcrest and the mini-renaissance of the British film industry. Set in 18th century South America, Robert De Niro stars as the slave trader who kills his own brother and goes looking for redemption with Jesuit missionaries. Joffe struggles to find the sort of haunting, moving and dramatic power of his previous film, The Killing Fields.

961. Faces (1968) Dir. John Cassavetes, 130 mins.

Having vowed never to direct another studio film Cassavetes returned  to independent cinema to tell the story of a dissolving marriage and the lovers to whom the couple turn to for solace. With the director at his most ambitious, Faces was shot on a small budget in black and white on 16 mm and, due to his painstaking methods, took a staggering 4 years to edit. Despite being entirely scripted, unlike his earlier improvised Shadows, the film is known for its powerful expressive acting and realistic dialogue.


AFI’s 100 Years…100 Laughs

In 2000 the AFI unveiled their 100 Years…100 Laughs list of the top 100 funniest movies in American cinema.
