Don't forget the original 'Sorcerer' or as it's titled 'Wages of Fear'. also good
i have honestly watched his performance 5-6 times. it's incredible and so playful. you can see he's really having fun with his character.
will hunt down his other works, such a good actor
I liked the end with the kid using the force, it was a nice touch.
Overrall it wasn't a bad film and that jump to light speed on the enemy ship was brilliant, they actually looked terrified.
The last movie was just a rolling of familiar ideas, this one felt like he tried to break out of the boundaries he was given.
i have to agree, unless you go to a small independent cinema with staff you know in a place you like it's just too commercial and like going to KFC. you feel ripped off by the $50 for the popcorn and drink with the snack you didnt want. and then you finally sit down and have to go thru 45 minutes of adverts that you just paid for.
big cinemas are just broken and have refused to change even though their customers have. you can't cherish something that is so sterile an unfeeling and is pretty transparent in it's desire to fleece as much money out of your wallet as possible while giving you a like-it-or-leave product.
we should though be supporting those small independent cinemas who build events around a release or do talks on their favourite movies. those we need to cherish because those make memories and do make friends.

Springbreakers (.....god this movie James Franco turned up at TIFF one time and he'd just shot Springbreakers, i was volunteering and I wouldn't let him sit down to Prisoners as I couldn't recognise him, then he took his baseball cap off, and said who he was, i said 'oh god i'm so sorry' he was fine and very courteos and we wound up watching the movie together, wonderful guy.)
All is Lost (....love this one)
Vanilla Sky (Bonus)
Holy Motors (Bonus)
...i'd also add The Hunter, great movie
and 'A Lonely Place to Die' brilliant! and a good lead in to The Descent
agree with these choices, very good movies. especially Wild Bunch which feels like several movies, same with once upon a time. that opening is timeless.
I would add Seven Samurai and High and Low. the sunglasses reflection in high and low is perfection.
Rio Bravo and The Searchers are also worthy choices. both westerns, one a nice movie to just follow along in the background and the other just a masterwork.
