DARYL ZERO is the world's greatest private investigator - a man who can tell you what you had for breakfast and tease out your darkest secrets within minutes of meeting you. Unfortunately, he is also a recluse, who only engages with the real world when there's a case to crack. As played by Bill Pullman (left) in Zero Effect, Daryl is as charming as he is unhinged: you catch his speed-freak eyes twinkling and his mouth contorting into a lopsided smile and you know that the monster inside him is only a breath away from combusting.

Whatever you think of Apocalypse Now, it has to be experienced in a cinema before you can truly pass judgement. Coppola's bombastic, excessive, even insane excursion into "heart of darkness" territory boasts a kamikaze cast (Martin Sheen, Frederic Forrest, Robert Duvall, Marlon Brando) and moments of chilling clarity amidst the chaos.
