Darling (2015, dir. Mickey Keating)

A housesitter is driven mad by her new job. Light on plot, but heavy on black and white style and with moments of jumpy weirdness, Darling is a tidy and minimalist psychological horror that makes the most of its limited resources.

Raging Bull (1980, dir. Martin Scorsese)

Biopic of Italian-American boxer Jake LaMotta. Unflinching warts-and-all account of the turbulent life and times of the New York middleweight, based on LaMotta’s autobiography. One of Scorsese’s finest, and thus one of the greatest American films.
