This over-the-top melodrama about mothers and daughters from director Douglas Sirk was considered populist trash at the time and is today seen as high art.

THE DEAD (1987)

John Huston’s final film adapts a short story by James Joyce about a party in 1904 Dublin.

ODD MAN OUT (1947)

I really enjoyed this dream-like film noir about a doomed man’s wanderings through Belfast.
