SHANE MEADOWS, director of Twenty Four Seven, tonight selects two of his favourite movies. The first is In the Soup (8pm FilmFour), Alexander Rockwell's little-known tale about a failed screenwriter (Steve Buscemi, right) whose fortunes look up when a gangster expresses an interest in producing one of his scripts. This is followed by Trojan Eddie (10pm), Gillies MacKinnon's striking film about a no-hoper (Stephen Rea) working for a crime boss (Richard Harris) in rural Ireland.

Diane Keaton starred in some of the key movies of the 1970s - The Godfather, Manhattan and Annie Hall. Since then she has struggled to recapture that form but has starred in such enjoyable fare as The First Wives Club (7pm Sky Moviemax). Here she joins forces with Goldie Hawn and Bette Midler as they take revenge on their errant ex-husbands.
