The Five Best Films
The Five Best Films

Strangers on a Train (PG)

Robert Walker and Farley Granger swap murders for an accelerating fairground- ride thriller. Perhaps the most quintessentially Hichcockian of all his outings.

Another Day in Paradise (18)

More white-trash junkie madness from low-life chronicler Larry (kids) Clark. Hint: that misleading title comes lathered in irony.

The Third Man (PG)

Carol Reed's perfect Viennese waltz; dancing arm-in-arm with Orson Welles (right) to the busy sounds of Anton Karas's zither.

Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (12)

Catchphrases, moonbases, groovy babies and crooked dentures. Welcome to the plastic-fantastic landscape of Mike Myers' irrepressible super-spy creation.

Place Vendome (15)

Nicole Garcia's upmarket Parisian thriller provides a velvet-lined showcase for the cut-glass skills of an on-form Catherine Deneuve.
