This is actually one of the more interesting lists, maybe it deserves its own topic.
But for now here is Ten Best Films Seen for the First Time This Year (and not from this year) aka don't you just love new ways to list films?, in no particular order:
- Ride Lonesome (1959)
- Ju-on: The Curse (2000)
- The Innocents (1961)
- Quadrophenia (1979)
- The Wild Angels (1966)
- Wake in Fright (1971)
- 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days (2007)
- Svanuće (1964)
- Amores Perros (2000)
- Paths of Glory (1957)
Top 3 would be Paths, Quadro and Svanuće. You probably haven't heard of the later (27 user ratings on imdb), I haven't either until I caught it on TV as a part of Forgotten Croatian Cinema cycle. It is a movie from Nikola Tanhofer, rescpected author from golden age of Croatian cinema (that would be the 50s), most famous for H8...
Svanuće is part love-triangle psychological drama, part thriller, part action movie, that uses experimental narrative and that amazed me like very few of Croatian movies from any period. I highly recommend that you seek it to more ambitious among you movie buffs...
@John: which Runaway train are you referring to?
