That's a big question, isn't it! What springs to mind... World Cinema, British comedies, Almodovar, gangster (e.g. Goodfellas), early Robert De Niro, Wes Anderson, Sci-Fi (anything from Primer to Empire Strikes Back), early Luc Besson, most of Gael Garcia Bernal's work, zombie films, everything by the Coen brothers, NO chick-flick-rom-coms (I'm sure there are some good ones but I don't want to have to sift through 100 formulaic ones to get lucky)...gosh there are a million genre-less individual movies (e.g. The Fall, Pan's Labyrinth, Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange etc) I could list. I have to admit I didn't enjoy Citizen Cane. I know, call me a philistine. I just didn't get it until someone told me you had to understand the historical context in which it was released or whatever. I have loved plenty of David Lynch's movies, just to prove that it's not all about understanding everything that's going on!
errrm... 10... 15? Please understand that I've been busy emigrating!
Either 'The Fighter' with Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg or 'The Raid', an Indonesian action/martial arts film but directed by British Gareth Evans which made it a perfect blend of real fight sequences and polished cinematography and production. Yep, I have to say The Raid wins.
I don't know what that means and don't want to just lie and Google them. Uh-oh, did I fail the test? ;-)
Hello, my name is Gabrielle and I just moved to Nashville from England. I'm hoping to make some new friends who enjoy the same things as I do and one of those is a love of film so I'm very happy to have found you :-)
What an interesting and diverse set of people I have met in this group; love it!
