Brazil

I try to see this movie at least once a year, as I grow older Brazil seems to make more and more sense - it is prophetic, and gives a great sense of perspective about the absurdities of our bizarre social norms. Personally, I think this is one of De Niro's most endearing roles...he's so NOT De Niro, but my absolute favorite perormance/character/message in the whole film is Katherine Helmond's (a la Who's The Boss) role as Ms. Ida Lowry. This movie is a classic for sure, and so very very Beep.

  • Brad Pitt at his finest. That should be enough for you to go out and buy this movie.

I mean, has Cameron Crowe ever done anything bad? Probably not. The film follows a suicidal Orlando Bloom as he journeys back to his home town. This depressed sole does what? He falls in love, of course.

What happens next will suprise you. Patrick Wilson in a thankless role and the astounding Ellen Page star in this intense, riveting and terrifying film. I bet you'll breath only three times watching it.

This is an amazing Peter Jackson film (pre Lord of the RIngs) Jackson's career trajectory really leaves me confused. He went from gory low brow B movies like Bad Taste to mainstream fair like Heavenly Creatures to Lord of the Rings. Consistency, please. Heavenly Creatures is at first a sweet movie about the friendship between two teen girls that moves to being a little odd, to awkward, to disturbing. One of these girls is crazy and takes the other one to crazytown with her.

A by-the-books, overachieving London cop is "promoted" to the seemingly sleepy English countryside by colleagues who feel threatened by his work ethic. Starring the wonderful pair of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as the rural cop he is partnered with, Hot Fuzz is a wickedly funny, bang-on satire/homage of the buddy-flick (ie. Lethal Weapon, Bad Boys). If you've seen Pegg, Frost and director, Edgar Wright's previous film, Shaun of the Dead, you'll love Hot Fuzz. It's hilarious, extremely clever and the type of film you'll want to watch over and over again just to catch everything.

Forget the remake starring Sylvester Stallone (who were they trying to kid, really?). Get Carter is a gritty, tense crime movie, and a classic of British cinema. It still has a tinge of the swinging 60s with its brilliantly evocative soundtrack and inclusion of stars Michael Caine and Britt Ekland. Carter is not a particularly clever but well-dressed thug from London, who is driven by a cold yet inspired revenge when he travels to Newcastle to avenge his brother's death. It's a masterfully told and acted tale, as we follow Carter through the sad and seedy underbelly of working-class Newcastle. Stark and unsettling, it's truly a classic.
