Time for films of the dramatic nature. Basically the place to fit in films that don’t quite fit in other genres.
1. Cinema Paradiso (1988) Directed by Giuseppe Tornatore
A story about a life long passion for cinema. Beautiful story told by a great director.
2. Incendies (2010) Directed by Denis Villeneuve
Still the best film in arguably the greatest living directors catalogue.
3. All the Presidents Men (1976) Directed by Alan J Pakula
If you want to know where the film Spotlight stole all its material from, here it is.
4. Mulholland Dr (2001) Directed by David Lynch
Regularly discussed as the greatest film of this century. Masterpiece.
5. Cache (2005) Directed by the Michael Haneke
Words cannot describe.
6. Once Upon a Time in Anatolia (2011) Directed by the Nuri Bilge Ceylan
Very slow paced like all Nuri’s films but hugely rewarding.
7. Falling Down (1993) Directed by Joel Schumacher
Flawed film due to Schumachers direction but a solid script and tour de force acting masterclass by Michael Douglas elevates this.
8. Magnolia (1999) Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson
Still shocked Tom Cruise didn’t win an academy award for his performance in this film.
9. Boyhood (2014) Directed by Richard Linklater
Pleasing on so many levels. Should have won best picture.
10. The Social Network (2010) Directed by David Fincher
One of the greatest screenplays ever written.
