Going Out: Film - THE FIVE BEST FILMS

1

East is East (5)

A stage-to-screen triumph for Ayub Khan-Din's Anglo-Asian comedy. The scene is the terraced home of the culture-clash Khans; the plot a sustained and turbulent series of domestic storms. See New Films, left

2

Ride With The Devil (5)

Loitering with intent on the Mason-Dixon border, Ang Lee's Civil War epic unfolds in a series of volatile battle scenes and intimate interludes. Tobey Maguire plays the virginal solider who falls for Jewell's pursed- lipped war widow. See New Films, left

3

Bowfinger (2)

Renaissance man Steve Martin scripts and stars in this scattershot Hollywood send-up about a no-talent producer, a bimbo starlet (Heather Graham) and a jittery megastar (Eddie Murphy).

4

Tarzan (U)

Farmed through the Disney dream factory, the Ape Man emerges as the sinewy centrepiece of a fast and flashy cartoon excursion. State-of- the-art visuals prop up a lightweight but likeable plotline.

5

The Sixth Sense (5)

A startlingly good performance by Bruce Willis smoulders at the heart of this slow-burning horror movie. A virtuoso twist-in-the-tale ending spins the whole film on its head. See New Films, left
