Falling Down dir. Joel Schumacher (1993) Broken by the oppressive heat and intolerance of Los Angeles, William Foster embarks on an impromptu suburban odyssey, striking back ever more violently. Michael Douglas gives his best-ever performance in this surprisingly poignant black comedy about the way people treat each other.
Flatliners dir. Joel Schumacher (1990) Twenty-five years on, Flatliners’ ensemble all-star cast looks to have injected water from the fountain of youth. This shadowy supernatural film hasn’t aged either, suspense levels and consequences spiking as five medical students kill then revive themselves in search of the afterlife.
