TT: Cram course
Dear OGIC and CAAF:
As you know, I haven't watched a film in a theater since Capote, and the only new films I saw on TV during that long interregnum were Coeurs, about which more below, and Little Miss Sunshine. (Things were a little hectic!) After I went to a screening of Sweeney Todd last week, I decided that the time had finally come to find out what I'd been missing. To this end, would both of you please be so kind as to post lists of the ten films released since the fall of 2005--current releases included--that you think Mrs. T and I might like best?
No spinach, please: I'm out for pleasure, very broadly construed, so don't send me to anything I "ought" to see (whatever that means) unless it's also something that you loved.
For purposes of calibration, the last ten then-new movies I watched with pleasure on a large screen were Bright Young Things, Capote, Collateral, Garden State, The Incredibles, Junebug, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Look at Me, Me and You and Everyone We Know, and Sideways.
Over to youse.
