    Few old TV shows have been brought to the big screen with such élan as Brian De Palma's majestic adaptation of the 60s small screen classic The Untouchables. Full Review

  • Superb performances, exquisite direction and that Ennio Morricone score create an authentic 1920s Chicago feel and a hugely entertaining crime drama. Full Review

  • It's vulgar, violent, funny and sometimes breathtakingly beautiful. Full Review

  • De Palma's style rides substance out of town to leave a glorious compendium of genre cool, remixing the original '50s TV series just as Indiana Jones took a whip to '30s serial adventures. Full Review
