The Independent Culture
1

Mouchette (NC)

Robert Bresson's austere 966 drama remains one of the best films about adolescence ever made. Nadine Nortier is the sullen adolescent run wild amid the towns and forests of rural France.

2

All About My Mother (5)

Almodovar at his quirky, curious best. All About My Mother offers a soaring salute to mums everywhere, not to mention a nostalgic sayonara to the good old days of travestite junkie prostitution.

3

Rushmore (5)

The high-school comedy hits its peak with this oddbod masterpiece about a gal (Olivia Williams), a guy (Bill Murray) and the monstrous schoolboy (Jason Schwartzman) who gets between them.

4

Go (8)

Doug (Swingers) Liman spirits us through one wild weekend in the lives of a crop of California young 'uns. Go stays tantalisingly one step ahead of its viewers, dropping clues and varying its rhythm.

5

Ravenous (8)

An eccentric salad of western, comedy and horror, Ravenous finds Robert Carlyle making a meal of his turn as a cannibal frontiersman in 9th-century Nevada.
