London Lite Monday, 14 September 2009 29 TELEVISION Filmchoice FILM RATINGS excellent very good good average poor KEY (R)repeat (S)subtitles on text service City Of God Film4, 12.40am (2003) ONCE again, Film4 has decided to show its best film in the dead of night. Which film buff vampire is doing their programming? Alexandre Rodrigues, above, stars in this relentless and superb look at the violent slums of Rio. It follows the tale of two boys who choose very different paths in a bid to rise out of their grinding poverty. Without A Paddle Film4, 9pm (2004) AFTER the death of their friend, three guys decide to fulfil a childhood dream of going on an expedition to find a long-dead bank robbers missing treasure. Doffing its hat to 1972s Deliverance in more ways than one, this is a witty -- if at times silly -- film starring Dax Shepard, Seth Green and Matthew Lillard, above. Nice cameo from Burt Reynolds. The Fountain Film4, 10.50pm (2006) HUGH JACKMAN and Rachel Weisz, above, star in this sci-fi romance that spans 1,000 years. Its all very philosophical, Hugh and Rachel are very good, and there are some interesting special effects. But Ive managed to fall asleep during all three attempts to watch it. Thats not saying its a bad film (not that I know how it ends), just that it shouldnt be on so late. Space Cowboys ITV4, 10pm (2000) PERHAPS its because the cast is so amazing that this film is so disappointing. A retired engineer is called back into service to fix a failing satellite. But he throws a spanner in the works when he insists his elderly former crew members go into orbit with him. Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, James Garner and Donald Sutherland, above, should have known better. STEPHEN MARR BBC2 ITV1 Channel 4 Five 10.30 This Morning (S).
