Show Me Love [DVD] [2000] [US Import] [NTSC]
Show Me Love [DVD] [2000] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Original title: F***ing Amal. Outcast fourteen-year old girl in love with the most popular girl in school; heartwarming without being saccharine, and treats its characters with respect and dignity."
Donnie Darko [DVD] [2002]
Donnie Darko [DVD] [2002]
"I saw this on my first date with my now boyfriend of two years. It's NOT a first-date movie, but we both loved it: very dark, quirky and makes you think. Some comedy in there, too."
The Usual Suspects (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD] [1995]
The Usual Suspects (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD] [1995]
"Kevin Spacey is utterly amazing as Verbal Kimt, and the ending is jaw-dropping. Classic, yet different whodunnit film, 'nuff said."
Drop Dead Gorgeous [DVD] [1999]
Drop Dead Gorgeous [DVD] [1999]
"Hilarious small-town beauty pageant mockumentary, pitting a feisty and talented trailer park girl against an ambitious overachiever, whose mother just happens to be the pageant's director..."
All About My Mother [DVD] [1999]
All About My Mother [DVD] [1999]
"First Almodovar film I've ever seen - a masterpiece. Nearly all-female characters, ranging from a grieving mother, her dead son's transvestite father, and a pregnant HIV+ nun, to a famous actress."
American Beauty [DVD] [2000]
American Beauty [DVD] [2000]
"Cinematically stunning portrayal of American suburbia, narrated by a man who decides to reinvigorate his life after falling for his daughter's best friend. Wow."
Spirited Away [DVD]
Spirited Away [DVD]
"Beautifully crafted Japanese cartoon. Overal feeling a mix of fairy tales and folk tales; surreal, but satisfying. One for kids and adults, and such a relief after Dragonball Z and Pokemon!"
L.A. Confidential [1997] [DVD]
L.A. Confidential [1997] [DVD]
"Brilliant adaptation of James Ellroy's 'unfilmable' book, a story of murder and corruption in the LA police force of the 1950's. Sterling performances by all involved."
Whale Rider [DVD] [2003]
Whale Rider [DVD] [2003]
"Based on a book by Maori writer Witi Ihimaera. The story of a Maori girl fighting for her grandfather's approval, and the right to be chief after her twin brother dies at birth. Beautiful scenery."
State and Main [DVD] [2001]
State and Main [DVD] [2001]
"Great great film, about a big-city film crew descending on a small town in America, with the culture clashes that arise from the encounter. Very funny."
Some Like It Hot - Special Edition [DVD] [1959]
Some Like It Hot - Special Edition [DVD] [1959]
"Tony Curtis plays a disturbingly convincing woman, Jack Lemmon goofs around, and Marilyn Monroe does sexy. Classic comedy, some brilliant moments, and the music's good too!"
The Dish [DVD] [2001] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
The Dish [DVD] [2001] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"The satellite dish that gave us the moon landing: 'What's it doing in the middle of a sheep paddock?'. Great comedy, suspense, a sweetly awkward little love story backplot, and gorgeous photography."
Rabbit-Proof Fence [DVD] [2002] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Rabbit-Proof Fence [DVD] [2002] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"True story of the Stolen Generations. Hard to believe this actually happened, and that the government thought they were doing the right thing. Visually stunning."
As Good As It Gets [DVD] [1998]
As Good As It Gets [DVD] [1998]
"Jack Nicholson is often painful to watch as the hypochondriac writer, which is only to his credit. Depending on your mood, this film is either soppy or heartwarming - I'm inclined to think the latter."
Empire Records [DVD] [1996] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Empire Records [DVD] [1996] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"A very youthful Renee Zellweger and Liv Tyler - the whole cast comes across as having a ball, which, combined with the great music and comedic high jinks makes for very enjoyable viewing."
Strictly Ballroom [DVD] [1992] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Strictly Ballroom [DVD] [1992] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Campy glitz (look out for the Coca-Cola ad) and dancing in true Baz Luhrmann style. You know you love it!"
Casablanca [1942] [DVD]
Casablanca [1942] [DVD]
"I know, it's one of those films that comes round every Christmas, but I think it's worth it. Favourite scene: the singing face-off between the Germans and the French in the bar."
Amelie [DVD] [2001]
Amelie [DVD] [2001]
"Aaaah. This is such a sweet movie, it'd be sickening, if it weren't for the humour."
Shrek [DVD] [2001]
Shrek [DVD] [2001]
"Incredibly funny, with plenty of intelligent humour, much in the style of Pixar. Loads of pop culture references, and great voices. Tons of fun."
Sleepy Hollow [DVD] [2000]
Sleepy Hollow [DVD] [2000]
"Eye candy. And not Johnny Depp - the visuals in this film are pretty near perfect. Tim Burton nails the creepy atmosphere so well. I'm not normally into the horror end of things, but this is amazing."
Ghost World [DVD] [2001]
Ghost World [DVD] [2001]
"A more well-rounded role for Thora Birch than in American Beauty, and she handles it well. Steve Buscemi is, as ever, a pro. For everyone who couldn't stand the peer pressure side of high school."
Election [1999] [DVD]
Election [1999] [DVD]
"Hot damn, this film makes you want to slap Reese Witherspoon! Wickedly funny story of the teacher who tries to bring a little competition into the student body president elections."
The Insider [DVD] [2000]
The Insider [DVD] [2000]
"Big tobacco companies taken on by one of their former own and a news show producer. Brilliant performances from both leads."
What's Eating Gilbert Grape? [DVD]
What's Eating Gilbert Grape? [DVD]
"This is I think the one film where Leonardo diCaprio really shines, and proves that he *can* act. Johnny Depp as the frustrated older brother who has to keep the household together is marvellous."
Traffic [DVD] [2001]
Traffic [DVD] [2001]
"Wonderful use of colour in a complex film on the war on drugs. Benecio del Toro turns in a great performance. P.S. I wanted to put 'The Goddess of 1967' on this list, but it's not on Amazon."
