The Father (2020)

  • Director: Florian Zeller
  • Starring: Sir Anthony Hopkins, Olivia Colman
  • IMDB Rating: 8.2/10
  • Run Time: 1 h 37 mins

A heartfelt film, The Father is one to watch with your nearest and dearest. Starring Sir Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman, the film centres around an ageing dementia sufferer who is cared for by his daughter, Anne. Frustrated by the stagnation of her life, Anne makes the bold decision to up and move to Paris, leaving her father at a crossroads. At this point, he is forced to face mortality, learn to let go and come to terms with his outlook on life. It’s a tough watch at times, but the performances from Hopkins and Colman are incredibly powerful and worthy of the Oscar nods they received at the time.

Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, and Jennifer Lawrence in ‘American Hustle’

American Hustle (2013)

  • Director: David O. Russell
  • Starring: Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams
  • IMDB Rating: 7.2/10
  • Run Time: 2 h 18 mins

Probably David O. Russell’s best film, American Hustle pushes some of Hollywood’s most elite talent into the frame and asks them to do a lot of heavy lifting. Somehow, despite being tasked with bringing a unique 1970s espionage storyline to life, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence make it work, producing an incredibly entertaining ride that feels almost like a fever dream. The film follows con artists Irving and Sydney, who after being nabbed for a dodgy deal, are forced to work for Richie, an FBI agent. When the beleaguered pair figure out that they are being used for a sting operation that leads to the conviction of prominent people, all hell breaks loose.

Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta in ‘Pulp Fiction’

Pulp Fiction (1994)

  • Director: Quentin Tarantino
  • Starring: John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis
  • IMDB Rating: 8.9/10
  • Run Time: 2 h 45 mins

One of the most important films ever made, Pulp Fiction took Quentin Tarantino from revered indie filmmaker to the biggest director on the planet in one quick move. The multi-plot format, coupled with the unique non-chronological storyline saw this neo-noir set a new standard for contemporary film, reigniting the career of John Travolta in the process. With an all-star cast and enough memorable lines to keep you entertained for life, Pulp Fiction is an absolute must-watch.

Tim Robbins and Sean Penn in 'Mystic River'

Mystic River (2003)

  • Director: Clint Eastwood
  • Starring: Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Kevin Bacon, Laura Linney
  • IMDB Rating: 7.9/10
  • Run Time: 2 h 17 mins

Sean Penn’s performance in the Clint Eastwood thriller Mystic River does not receive the acclaim it deserves, which is a big call considering he picked up an Academy Award for his efforts. A transcendent performance that encapsulates grief at its absolute worst, Penn explodes onto the screen as a true tour de force, stealing each and every scene with heartfelt authenticity. He plays Jimmy, a Boston gangster, who reunites with childhood friends Dave and Sean after his daughter is murdered, but he is suspicious of their intent and motivations. A twisting story of betrayal, loss and power, Mystic River is incredible from start to finish.

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in ‘La La Land’

La La Land (2016)

  • Director: Damien Chazelle
  • Starring: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone
  • IMDB Rating: 8/10
  • Run Time: 2 h 8 mins

By the time La La Land was released in 2016, director Damien Chazelle was already a star. The Whiplash filmmaker was on a roll and his ode to old Hollywood was destined to be a magnum opus; indeed it was. The musical romance, which stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, follows Sebastian, a pianist, and Mia, an actress, two artists on a journey of self-discovery aiming to break into their respective fields. However, as their bond grows stronger, they find themselves torn between their love for each other and their careers.

Classic Movies on SBS On Demand

SBS On Demand has perhaps the best collection of classic films on offer in Australia, with a huge collection of award-winning releases from yesteryear. We recommend diving into the archives to tick off the ‘movies you must see before you die’ list.

Apocalypse Now Redux (2001)

  • Director: Francis Ford Coppola
  • Starring: Marlon Brando, Harrison Ford
  • IMDB: 8.4/10
  • Run Time: 3 h 32 mins

An extended version of the epic war film Apocalypse Now, which sees an additional 49 minutes of material that had been removed from the original film.

Das Boot (1981)

  • Director: Wolfgang Petersen
  • Starring: Jürgen Prochnow, Hubertus Bengsch, Herbert Grönemeyer
  • IMDB Rating: 8.4/10
  • Run Time: 2 h 29 mins

Das Boot is a 1981 West German film written and directed by Wolfgang Petersen that tackles some big issues. It follows the perilous plight of the young crew aboard a German U-Boat in the frigid waters of the North Atlantic. Terrified and alone, the young men are torn between their orders, their survival, and their morals, leaving the door ajar just enough for madness to seep in. An incredible feat of filmmaking in the context of the Cold War, Das Boot is perhaps one of the most culturally significant movies ever made.

SBS On Demand Action Movies

From big-budget action blockbusters to small-scale operations that shook the globe, the action movies on SBS On Demand offer some seriously gut-punching entertainment. Take a look at our favourite action movies on the platform and decide for yourself just who is the greatest action hero of all time.

Ryan Gosling in ‘Drive’

Drive (2011)

  • Director: Nicolas Winding Refn
  • Starring: Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Albert Brooks, Oscar Isaac, Ron Perlman
  • IMDb: 7.8/10
  • Run Time: 1 h 40 mins

Before he was ‘just Ken’, Ryan Gosling was an all-out action legend. In Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive, Gosling goes full Steve McQueen, playing a mysterious Hollywood stunt driver who moonlights as a violent gun for-hire and getaway driver. When he falls for his neighbour, Irene, a criminal’s wife, he inadvertently lands in the middle of a robbery attempt gone awry. Those he wronged aren’t particularly fond of his actions and so begins a brutal cat-and-mouse game. If you haven’t seen Drive, the film is short on dialogue and heavy on intensity, so be warned, it does get a little dicey. That being said, Winding Refn’s hyper colour world is on full-display here and it’s worth watching for the visuals alone.

Danny Trejo in ‘Machete’

Machete (2010)

  • Director: Ethan Mainiquis, Robert Rodriguez
  • Starring: Danny Trejo, Michelle Roderiguez, Robert De Niro

This biographical war drama is a true tear-jerker and is one of Polanski’s best films to date.

Put this one on next time you’re in the mood for a little (or big) cry.
