"Picnic at Hanging Rock" (1975), directed by Peter Weir. 115 minutes. Rated R. An early gem from the director of "Dead Poets' Society" and "Witness," this one is set in 1900 Australia, where three girls and their teacher vanish while on a school outing. A psychedelic/supernatural story supposedly based on an actual account.
"Miracle Mile" (1989), directed by Steve DeJarnatt. 87 minutes. Rated R. Among the best of the nuclear apocalyptic films, the mood of this one resembles that of the quirky "After Midnight." A man races against time after mistakenly receiving a message that missiles have been launched and World War III is an hour away. Intense, humorous and powerful.
