SBS was always great for sneaky movies.

When you're a young teenager the Tuesday night titty flick on SBS was the ducks guts.
And she's turning cold, at fifteen years old,
Taken too much slow, minds gone out to sea on the P&O,
Don't know what to do, rotten shade of blue,
Another case of "stupid is as stupid does..."

Cuando llegue el día, y estoy parado a las puertas del cielo, será Dios pidiendo mi perdón...

If you do, make sure it's the 2008 version as Hollywood has remade it and toned it right down. Mainstream audiences are too conservative for films that pack such an emotional wallop. It's not a gore fest which is what American audiences like... it's far more unique, cruel and hellish than that.

This one is for forum member Donnie Brasco
In this scene Jonny Depp plays an undercover cop - agent Donnie Brasco
He is wearing a wire in his boot to record the mafia naturally
However things get a bit tricky when they walk into a Japanese restaurant and must take their shoes of.
Al Pacino in this scene as well. Good cast.

For those with a warped sense of humour, check out some of the early Peter Jackson movies. Classics like bad taste (aliens invade NZ), Meet the Feebles (The naughty muppets) and Braindead.
