    I'm a fan of Winterbottom, he slipped my mind.
    1. The Claim - A- (There were some problems in the story structure, but I loved the scale of the production, the sets, the ambition of what it tried to do, and of course having Sarah Polley doesn't hurt either. Glad I was able to see in in a theater, this is a film that needs a big screen)
    2. Tristram Shandy: A Cock & Bull Story - B+
    3. Wonderland - B+ (Solidly acted, multi-character, multi-story drama_
    4. In This World - B+ (moving film about the travails people are willing to go through in hopes of a better life.)
    5. A Mighty Heart - B
    6. The Killer Inside Me - B-
    7. Code 46 - B- (interesting concept and sci-fi world, bad decision to cast Tim Robbins as a romantic lead. Samantha Morton acts circles around him)
    8. A Summer in Genoa - B-
    9. 9 Songs - C+
    10. 24 Hour Party People - C (film about the early development of the British New Wave and bands like Joy Division, something I thought I would really like, but didn't really)

    Check out The Claim George. It's set in an old west mining town. Peter Mullan plays the man who controls the town and its gold mine. His past comes back to haunt him when a railroad surveying team comes to town. Based on Thomas Hardy's The Mayor of Casterbridge.

    Out of [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    A Cock and Bull Story (2005)
    9 Songs (2004)
    Code 46 (2003) [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]1/2 - One of the best examples of "Hard" Sci-Fi to come along in years. Also one of the best examples of Cyber-Punk ever put on film. I understand Brook's comments about Robbins, who I am not exactly a fan of, but I also can see it as an irony, since he plays an empathic person. Maybe he is not the least bit empathic, but it's just the virus. Cool stuff. Own the DVD.
    In This World (2002)
    24 Hour Party People (2002)
    ... aka 24 Hour Party People (France)

    I Want You (1998/I)
    ... aka Beloved
    Welcome to Sarajevo (1997)
    Jude (1996) [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]1/2 - One of the most viciously depressing stories I have ever seen. Still, I went out and picked up a used copy of the novel. Good cast, plus it does have its, um, moments. Too bad the DVD is OOP. Own the DVD.

    Have only seen "Code 46", which I liked a lot. Have "Wonderland" in my to-watch pile.
