CINEMA CLASSICS 2006   "Oompa-Loompas are crazy for Coco-Beans"
[ Track 1] CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY
Director: Tim Burton
Cast: Johnny Depp (Willy Wonka), Freddie Highmore (Charlie Bucket), David Kelly (Grandpa Joe), Helena Bonham Carter (Mrs Bucket), Noah Taylor (Mr Bucket), Missi Pyle (Mrs Beauregarde), James Fox (Mr Salt), Deep Roy (Oompa Loompa), Christopher Lee (Dr Wonka).
Story: Most nights in the Bucket home, dinner is a watered-down bowl of cabbage soup which young Charlie gladly shares with the many members of the household. Every night, the last thing he sees from his window is Willy Wonka's great factory and he falls asleep dreaming about what might be inside. For nearly fifteen years no one has seen a single worker going in or coming out of the factory, or ever caught the slightest wink of Wonka himself. But one day Willy Wonka announces that he will open his factory to five children and reveal all its secrets and magic.
Music: Sunrise from 'Also sprach Zarathustra' by Richard Strauss (1864-1949)
Also featured in: 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), 2010 (1984), and Casino (1995). "Never judge a man by his cover"
[Track 2] THE LIFE AND DEATH OF PETER SELLERS
Director: Stephen Hopkins
Cast: Geoffrey Rush (Peter Sellers), Charlize Theron (Britt Ekland), Emily Watson (Anne Sellers), John Lithgow (Blake Edwards), Miriam Margolyes (Peg Sellers), Peter Vaughan (Bill Sellers), Sonia Aquino (Sophia Loren), Stanley Tucci (Stanley Kubrick), Stephen Fry (Maurice Woodruff)
Story: Peter Sellers was one of the finest comic actors of the twentieth century, with an uncanny ability to adapt to a wide variety of r??les including Inspector Clouseau, probably his best-loved impersonation. As he said himself, this almost led to his not having any identity of his own. Behind all the comic banter was, however, a darker side with bouts of mental illness, maltreatment of his women and contempt for his colleagues. Good or bad, it is all here with a bravura performance of Sellers by Geoffrey Rush.
Music: The Blue Danube by Johann Strauss II (1825-1899)
Also featured in: 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), The Age of Innocence (1993), Colonel Redl (1985), The End of the Affair (1999), Harold and Maude (1971), The Last Emperor (1987), Roxanne (1987), Strictly Ballroom (1992), Titanic (1997), True Lies (1994) and many others. "It Can Open Any Door"
[Track 3] THE SKELETON KEY
Director: Iain Softley
Cast: Kate Hudson (Caroline Ellis), Gena Rowlands (Violet Devereaux), John Hurt (Ben Devereaux), Peter Sarsgaard (Luke), Joy Bryant (Jill), Maxine Barnett (Mama Cynthia)
Story: Having answered a Help Wanted ad, Caroline Ellis finds herself working as a live-in caretaker to Ben Devereaux, a stroke victim who has lost the ability to speak. Ben's mother, Violet, gives Caroline a skeleton key with which she can open any door in the house - with one exception, which she says she has never been able to open. But curiosity gets the better of Caroline and she opens the door to find a wealth of objects representing the history of the old house. There is also an ancient form of folk magic and a dark secret of which Violet knows more than she is willing to let on.
Music: Porgi amor from 'The Marriage of Figaro' by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
Also featured in: Freak City (1999). "Repair for adventure!"
[Track 4] ROBOTS
Directors: Chris Wedge, Carlos Saldanha

Story: Everybody agrees Rodney Copperbottom is a master inventor. Rodney has two big dreams: he wants to make the world a better place to live in and wants to meet his big idol Bigweld, the greatest inventor the world has seen. So he sets out on a journey where he runs into a lovely executive 'bot, with whom he instantly falls in love, but also wicked company tycoon Ratchet and assorted other mechanical beings.
Music: Overture to 'The Barber of Seville' by Gioachino Rossini (1792-1868)
Also featured in: Breaking Away (1979), A Clockwork Orange (1971), A Fish Called Wanda (1988), and Prizzi's Honor (1985). "Passion Temptation Obsession"
[Track 5] MATCH POINT
Director: Woody Allen
Cast: Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Chris Wilton), Matthew Goode (Tom Hewett), Emily Mortimer (Chloe Hewett Wilton), Scarlett Johansson (Nola Rice), Brian Cox (Alan Hewett), Geoffrey Streatfield (Alan Sinclair)
Story: A one-time tennis pro, Chris Wilton was used to falling just short in his life. But when he befriends Tom Hewett and marries his sister, Chloe, the doors are opened to the kind of money and success that Chris had once dreamed of. Chris should have settled for happiness, but he is torn by his attraction to Tom's impossibly beautiful and sensual fiancee, Nola. The attraction turns to an obsession that forces Chris to make a critical choice. Now everything in his life hinges on whether or not he falls short again - and if his luck runs out. Match Point is a drama about ambition and obsession, the seduction of wealth, and the often discordant relationship between love and sexual passion. Perhaps most important, however, the story reveals the huge part luck plays in the events of our lives, refuting the comforting misconception that more of life is under our control than really is.
Music: Una furtiva lagrima from 'L'elisir d'amore' by Gaetano Donizetti (1797-1848)
