There is so much great talent in so many interesting films out there... I find it hard to set one or two apart from the rest. A few that stand out to me would be: Ricardo Darín, Maggie Smith, Javier Bardem (in Spanish films), Juliette Binoche, Colin Firth, Judi Dench, Federico Luppi, Kristin Scott Thomas, Cate Blanchett, Eduardo Noriega, Vanessa Redgrave, Roberto Benigni, Daniel Day Lewis, Gael García Bernal...
I've always loved indie, arthouse & foreign films. I rarely find others who share similar tastes in film and/or music, so I look forward to joining this group in watching good films and having interesting post-film discussions & drinks.
I love that so many people in this group share similar interests. It's always interesting to hear everyone's post-screening comments, especially when they're made over drinks & good eats. ;-D
