Jewboy (SBS Thur 830P) "powerful and restrained," this SBS funded movie-ette (50 minutes in length) was invited to be screened at Cannes last year and won three AFI awards locally. Written and directed by a "gifted emerging" talent, Tony Krawitz, the short film is also well acted by lead Ewen Leslie and ably supported by Saskia Burmeister.

Jaws (10 Sat 10P) first half is good old fashioned horror movie set-up with the second half owing as much to captain ahab and his whale as to anything else.

Open Your Eyes (SBS Sun 930P) the original of what was remade Vanilla Sky with Tom and Penelope - this version is in Spanish, is heaps better than the remake (what a surprise !), also stars Penélope (this time with an inflection) and is directed by Alejandro Amenábar (The Sea Inside, The Others) {yes that's right, I am actually endorsing a PC movie}

The Producers (10 Sun 12noon) With the current remake in cinemas underwhelming critics world-wide, enjoy the orignal, orignal Mel Brooks comedy from 1968 starring Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder.
