For the TWQ (The Weekend Question), I'm asking you to think of the good films you've seen this year.
What do you estimate as being the best new film that you've seen this year? Add some runners-up if you wish.
My answers are:
The Lives Of Others (Das Leben Der Anderen) : This German made movie won best foreign language film at the Oscars, and is truly wonderful. About the East German Stasi who listen in to it's citizens. One of the best pieces of cinema there is, and highly recommended.
Elizabeth: The Golden Age: This excellent film, with Cate Blanchett reprising her role as Elizabeth I is excellent. She will be worthy of an oscar for it.
Pan's Labyrinth: This film was pipped for 'Best Foreign Language film' by 'The Lives Of Others'. A superb film set in World War Two that mixes reality and fantasy together to get a powerful combination.
1408: A super horror film, with good effects, about a man struggling to get out of his hotel room.
Now it's over to you...
