"You're gonna need a bigger boat." Though decades have passed since it first entered theatres in 1975, Steven Spielberg's Jaws still assuredly holds its position as one of the greatest thrillers of all time, and remains an important cinematic artefact. Central to the film's brilliance is the riveting suspense, the colourful cast of characters, the humour, the terrific dialogue, the unforgettable s... read more

Today Great White Sharks are on the endangered species list. We now know that even the humble toaster in your kitchen is far more dangerous to mankind than these wondrous creatures, which have changed so little since prehistoric times. But in 1975 the world was a different place and for anyone watching this movie the sea quickly became a fearful place with sharks the hidden killer of the deep. read more

When a young woman is killed by a shark while skinny-dipping near the New England tourist town of Amity Island, police chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) wants to close the beaches, but mayor Larry Vaughn (Murray Hamilton) overrules him, fearing that the loss of tourist revenue will cripple the town. Ichthyologist Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and grizzled ship captain Quint (Robert Shaw) offer to help Brody capture the killer beast, and the trio engage in an epic battle of man vs. nature.

Message or Meaning! (24 movies items)

" The message: While Jaws, is the main antagonist, you could agree that Mayor Larry Vaughan is the greater threat. All Jaws did was do what sharks do. Eat people."

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 2 (130 movies items)

"Pros: Jaws Roy Schneider as Martin Brody, and Lorraine Grey, as Ellen Brody. Richard Dreyfuss and Robert Shaw Amity Island as it’s backdrop. The effects. Even if the shark, didn’t work it’s still regardlessly very effective. The opening scene in the film. When Jaws attacks. It gave us, the very first blockbuster film. Music by John Williams Murray Hamilton as Mayor Vaughan, Cons: The incalculable harm, that occurred to sharks, after the film was released. If you’re afraid o"

"FORMAT: 35mm CONDITION: ★★★★½ NOTES: Closing film of the festival. Original release Technicolor dye transfer print with its mono soundtrack intact, last screened in 2008, and its condition looks mind-blowing. Most reels bear a slight golden tint and there are some hints of wear, but the rest of this print is near spotless, like it only just came out and screened for several weeks. DATE: June 11th 2023 CINEMA: BFI LOCATION: Southbank"
