Keep it brief: Nine great films that are 90 minutes or less

Summertime means long days, short nights, and shorter shorts. And choosing a late-night film can be a chore if you want to watch it and not pass out drunk in your clothes after soaking up rum and rays all day. As such, here are nine films that keep it brief.

 

Sexy Beast (2000)

Running time: 88 minutes

Fortunately there’s more to this “one last heist” film than a topless Ray Winstone (The Departed) and Ben Kingsley’s (Schindler’s List) use of “c**t”.

 

Sightseers (2012)

Running time: 85 minutes

A killer caravan comedy. No seriously – it’s a comedy about killers and caravans. Ben Wheatley (Down Terrace) turns a British holiday staple into a bloodbath.

 

Attack the Block (2011)

Running time: 88 minutes

John Boyega’s (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) breakthrough film. Why isn’t Finn like him? London’s housing estates are no place for alien invaders.

 

Medicine For Melancholy (2008)

Running time: 88 minutes

You’ve just walked home in the sticky night air with a hot date. Now what? Barry Jenkins’s (Moonlight) debut is the answer. Low-key romcom classic.

 

Airplane! (1980)

Running time: 87 minutes

More punchlines, sight gags, and silliness than all the comedies of the last 40 years combined. You can’t go wrong with a dose of Leslie Nielsen (Forbidden Planet).

 

Run Lola Run (1998)

Running time: 80 minutes

Want to know how Jack got his groove back? Before CTU had the monopoly on real time ridiculousness, Run Lola Run gave them a run for their money.

 

The Lion King (1994)

Running time: 88 minutes

Too late for the Hamilton soundtrack? You’ll wake the neighbors? But you fancy a singsong? Doesn’t take long to complete the circle of life.

 

Enemy (2013)

Running time: 90 minutes

This film will fuck you up. For life.

 

When We Were Kings (1996)

Running time: 89 minutes

The Oscar-winning documentary that converts even the most ardent non-boxing fan. Just don’t get too excited and punch your poor pet.
