Liam's a rebel with a cause; Michael Collins Sky Premier, 1.55am - 4.05am.
Neil Jordan's ambitious political thriller cuts through the huff and guff of sectarian politics as grubby episodes from the unhappy history between Ireland and England are thrillingly filmed like an American gangster movie. The powerful score is by Elliot Goldenthal.
With Aidan Quinn, Stephen Rea, Alan Rickman, Julia Roberts, Ian Hart, Charles Dance, Brendan Gleeson, Stuart Graham, Sean McGinley, John Kenny, Jonathan Rhys- Myers, Gerard McSorley, Ronan McCairbre, Ger O'Leary, Gary Whelan, Michael Dwyer. (1996) PPPP
Richard Dreyfuss Sky Movie Max, 10.30am - 1.00pm Mr Holland's Opus
RICHARD DREYFUSS as an American Mr Chips, teaching music to teenagers at an Oregon high school from the mid-'60s to the '90s. A warmly sentimental story charting the highs and lows in the life of a decent man. It's beautifully played by Dreyfuss and a useful antidote to the cynical manipulation of a similar time-span in Forrest Gump. With Glenne Headly, Jay Thomas (1995) PPP
Never Talk To Strangers Premier, 12.25am - 1.55am
CRIMINAL psychologist Rebecca DeMornay seems fairly neurotic herself when interviewing tightlipped serial killer Harry Dean Stanton. She's soon under the spell of mysterious Puerto Rican Antonio Banderas and suddenly her New York apartment doesn't seem quite such a safe haven. Full-blown melodrama makes a virtue of its red herrings. (1995) PPP
Savage Messiah TNT, 3.15am - 5.00am
SCOTT ANTHONY unhappily cast as French sculptor Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, adopting the name of his manipulative Polish muse (Dorothy Tutin as Sophie Brzeska) in Ken Russell's untypically dull `art' film. The Great War is looming so it ends in tears. (1972) PP
