    You must, must see the French movie Cache (Hidden in English). It stars Juliet Binoche. Very real and you will go WHOA at one scene and walk away at the end thinking hmm, that was different.

    While I'm here Mullholland Drive is the best movie to come out of the states in years..

    Beowulf - epic. just. fucking. epic. icon_biggrin.gif

    Endgame, STV - not 'really' a movie but it IS two episodes long. The last two episodes of voyager, actually, and by far the best Borg episode EVER. Rivals 'first contact', if not surpasses it icon_biggrin.gif

    Network - those movie clips of the anchorman in Zeitgeist are from this movie. Truly awesome.

    So my life in Umbria is about all the people whoa re victims of a terrorist bombing on a small train. They all go back to this alcoholics old ladies estate in Umbria to recover. It's a nice twisty movie

    "The Red Pony" with screenplay by John Steinbeck, music by Aaron Copeland, directed by Lewis Milestone in 1949, the year I was born.

    A quiet character study of American farm life 100 years ago, with coming-of-age themes that have their equivalents today. Incredible to watch what happens when 3 geniuses combine in a single film (director, screenplay, score). You can freeze each film frame, and each could be framed as a piece of art.

    And the scene with the vultures is the most horrifying movie moment I've ever seen, surpassing all the special effects of any blockbuster movie there's ever been. Because it comes in the middle of such beauty and serenity, that it jars you like no slasher-fest can.

    Chris & Don: A Love Story: A fascinating documentary about intergenerational couple before and after Stonewall. Caught me by complete surprise. A very unique story.

    Happiness

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0147612/

    QUOTE Todd Solondz, writer and director of "Happiness," describes his perplexing film as "a series of intertwining love stories, stories of connections missed and made between people, how people always struggle to make a connection, and to what degree they succeed or don't." It's about relationships, obsessions, and stunning discoveries both private and social. It contains some very graphic material-enough that the filmmakers released it without an MPAA rating. Even as the film exploits extreme adult themes and graphic content, it does not glamorize or stylize its subjects. Rather, it uses them to paint a disturbing picture of the dark side of human nature.

    The film connects with the audience because these characters feel real-they are ordinary people with serious problems. It takes place in a homely suburbia environment in which Solondz draws us in, and eventually pushes us far away with enough provocative content to stand next to "A Clockwork Orange." The movie does, however, know what to show on screen and what not to. It's smart, and indecisive, not dirty and gratuitous. The film defines the character's relationships very well. "Happiness" doesn't explore random, unrelated characters. Their separate lives do, however, connect, and the movie does a great job revealing those connections.

    Just saw at the cine this past week, Burn After Reading, a Cohen Brothers movie. It was really different, somewhat horrifically violent, but well casted and very good direction. Actually, I am not sure if that is the correct name but something close as it was posted in Spanish but was the original version with Spanish subtitles.

    Longtime Companion. A brilliant, if flawed, film that gives you an idea of what life was like during the early days of the AIDS crisis. Excellent performances by all involved. But an unsatisfying ending.

    Do none of you guys step out of the safety shell that is the English language and seek something a little further afar.

    Pans Labyrinth should have been the ultimate Ocasr winner the other year..

    As for winners, check out Somersault. Awesome Aussie movie that you can't help but be moved by..

    Once...a really cool music film - if you're in to that sort of thing. I wasn't sure I'd like it but it was recommended by a good friend.

    It's about taking chances, being true to your dreams...and the good that can come from it when you do.

    Plus the music is really good.

    Trip to Bountiful - the mother-in-law has Alzheimer's and runs away from the home where she's staying to get back to her home town, Bountiful, which is long deserted.

    The Notebook - another touching movie about how aging takes away some things, but love remains. Gret flashbacks to the 1930's; and Ryan Gosling is awesome, as is Gina Rowlands and James Garner.

    Beautiful Thing - teenage gay boy love story. Touching

    Mambo Italiano - Italian gay men love story - against the odds.

    "AUGUST RUSH" - if you love a tear-jerker and music - I cried buckets

    Also "LEGENDS OF THE FALL" -- one of my all-time favorite Brad Pitt movies - also cried buckets

    If you want a sweet comedy love story that is hysterical but also bitter sweet

    "DAN IN REAL LIFE" w/ Steve Carell
