I haven’t seen to many. Only 4,12, and 17.
Thanks for making the list. I’m going to have to start working on it.
I’ve seen quite a lot of these but one that I’ve been meaning to see for a while is Sin Nombre. Great list here.
I am very glad to hear that. And, I thought ‘Sin Nombre’ was very manipulative (I am just remembering your previous comments), but I like it because it is very bold and shockingly realistic. If you have not seen yet (probably you have), I strongly recommend ‘The Secret in their Eyes’. It is a great film.
That’s another one I’ve yet to see. I completely forgot all about that. That was a recent Oscar winner was it not? I must get my hands on that one.
Yes, it won, and little wonder as it is a masterpiece of a kind. I think it delivers (and does so brilliantly) what a modern Hollywood thriller nowadays fails to: edge-of-your-seat, gripping, thought-provoking murder mystery with fab twists and turns, plus a ‘perfect’ ending – while, at the same time, being highly emotional and even ‘touching’ film. The result is very impressive.
You have summed it up very well there. I’ll make this a priority. Thanks!
You are welcome. It would also be nice to hear what you think about the film, and many thanks for commenting.
No problem! It’s my pleasure. You highlighted a lot of good films and recommended some as well.
