Oleanna (1994)

A two character movie, involving a college professor, John, who is confronted by a female student, Carol, who is failing his course. The two spend a long time talking to each other, during which time John says a few things that can be taken the wrong way. After the night the two spent talking, John is slapped with a sexual harassment accusation by Carol. After more accusations from Carol, John's career as a teacher begins to fall apart. This forces John with a choice on how to handle the situation, and the results make up for a shattering ending to the movie. The film stars William H. Macy as John and Debra Eisenstadt as Carol. A masterful dialogue by David Mamet, a controversial subject and brilliant performances makes this movie a must-see.

In collaboration with Jim Thompson, Stanley Kubrick delivers the perfect film noir. In 'Killing', Jim Thompson concoct a story about a desperate gang of lowlifes led by a grim and determined Sterling Hayden. Together they devise and execute a complex racetrack robbery, but inner tensions and the iron fist of fate work against them. The cast is uniformly superb, with Hayden, Jay C. Flippen, Timothy Carey, Marie Windsor, and Elisha Cook Jr. fleshing out characters torn between grandiose ambition and petty desire. This film is the perfect introduction to film noir - the strange narrative structure and Kubrick's bouncing back and forth in time makes this movie an absolute must-see.
