Le Batteur du Boléro
Patrice Leconte | 1992

Probably no one in the public listening to the orchestra's rendition of Ravel's Boléro notices him but the drummer (Jacques Villeret) is a regular hero. For, although his mind is assailed by loads of unsettling thoughts and worries, he tries to keep the rhythm at any cost. He knows all too well that he falls out of time only once all the magic of the piece will vanish. Will the drummer hold on till the end?

Offside
Erez Tadmor, Guy Nattiv | 2006

‘Offside’ is the second short film in the trilogy by Erez Tadmor & Guy Nattiv regarding the Middle East conflict. This short is a follow up to their short film ‘Strangers’. Shot in Israel, during September 2005, at the security zone that separates between Israel and the Palestine Authority.

The Bright Side of Life
Life of Brian | 1979

Irreverent satire of Biblical films and religious intolerance focuses on Brian, a Jew in Roman-occupied Judea. After joining up with an anti-Roman political organization, Brian is mistaken for a prophet, and becomes a reluctant Messiah. A Monty Pyrthons' masterpiece and one of my fave films of all time. Directed by Terry Jones.

Reflection in the Mirror
25th Hour | 2002

The last day of freedom for a young man before he begins serving a seven-year jail term for drug dealing. Here is a really powerful scene in the bathroom, as Monty (Edward Norton) looks in the mirror and sees that it's got ‘Fuck You’ written on it. Monty begins to rant about just about everyone, as a montage shows clips of various ethnicities and places in New York city. Directed by Spike Lee.

I Scream, you Scream...
Down by Law | 1986

Scene from ‘Down by Law’ by Jim Jarmusch where Jack (John Lurie), Zack (Tom Waits) and Roberto (Roberto Benigni) sing the hilarious ‘I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream’!
