    Yup Requiem for the win. That climatic scene is one the hardest things I've ever had to watch (ASSSS TO ASSSS).

    It helps that Clint Mansell from Pop Will Eat Itself did the soundtrack though...



    I'm gonna go watch Capote tomorrow so I shall post back with my view soon...

    Ya mean. Requiem for a Dream - please get the name right, it is one of the best sounding titles of all films. Just listen to it. Requiem for a Dream... I f***ing love it.
    It's odd, at first it languished at the bottom of my DVD pile. And then with each viewing it climbed slowly, now it sits at number 22... Just beneath Apocalypse Now Redux... It may move again, up the ladder... but I don't know, all I do know is it is a class movie.

    Anyone seen them two new Clooney flicks?

    Syriana
    Good night and Good Luck...

    I'm planning on seeing both of 'em. I thought I'd ask someone if their any good before I do.
    I saw Good Night, and Good Luck in the US in November. Up there with the best films I've seen at the cinema in the last year or so (along with Crash, Million Dollar Baby, Hidden etc).

    Yeah I know what the full title is...I own it both the film and the soundtrack...and I've seen it quite a few times.

    I was merely shortening it to save time.

    Capote - 8/10

    Bit disappointing really, I was expecting a masterpiece, up there with some of the excellent drama coming out of the US at the moment. Phillip Seymour Hoffman's performance moves it up from average to an 8 though. Oscar worthy even if the film isn't. His performance is worth the admission alone, so overall worth a watch.

    Yep the soundtrack really puts the film into perspective. Makes it all the more shocking and saddening at the end. It's dead good.
    Love the film. I believe it is the best example of real film making this side of the millennium...

    There are some decent films in this decade:

    Million Dollar Baby
    Crash
    Mystic River
    Gladiatior
    Adaptation
    The Pianist
    Training Day
    Star Wars: ROTS
    LOTR
    Gangs of New York
    Memento
    The Aviator
    Hotel Rwanda
    A History of Violence
    and
    of course
    Munich.

    These are all classic. And there are more.
    But none stand out like Requiem for a Dream

    Would u guys say that the matrix has a strong religious theme to it. I think that Neo is some kind of avatar or incarnation of God. Also the way in which the world is an illusion and how we are trapped in it is a strong theme in the philosophy of Eastern religions such as Hinduism and Buddhism.
