A few good films from the last few years

How I Live Now

Much better than I had expected from the start. Ending a bit soggy but otherwise impressive.

City of God

Smart but simple film. Tells the story. Cool acting by people I've never heard of or probably will see again.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

One of those 'I think I need to see that again' movies. I ahve tried on several occasions to explain it to someone without any success whatsoever. Nice.

The Lives of Others

The best so far in the last few years' viewing. Not something to cheer you in summer time but worth sticking with through to a very smart ending.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

I like films with slightly crazy and wacky but smart girls who are a little unpredictable and this is another. Much better than I had expected it to be.

Salt

Another film that far exceeded my expectations. Really very good.

Super 8

With those two names on the cover you just know that there should be some good writing and it won't be easy to predict where it goes. This doesn't let you down but may not be their best commercial work. Different enough for me, though.
