I love Early Doors.
Watch Split then mate. Mcevoy is stunning, he's the young scottish lad, the boyfriend of the landlords daughter if you didn't know.
Think he was in Shameless as well. I was honestly gobsmacked at his acting skills. Great director in Night Shallamayan and a compelling storyline.

For some variety:

Saw
Hostel
Matchstick Men
Momento
Leaving Las Vegas
Leap Year
Stalker
Watched all 3 of the Hostel movies today, I don't know why they get such a bad rep!
I loved number 1, 2 was okay but I really didn't enjoy the third instalment with the American Hostel, though the ending was great.

The Others is a good watch, Villain is a classic 70's gangster movie, again, well worth a watch. Another I will recommend is a bit dark, called Run Bitch Run.

I watched Stan and Ollie last night. Enjoyed it a lot, a respectful tribute and rather poignant story.

It reminded me that both
The Damned United
and
Frost/Nixon

are superb films.

Some great shouts in this thread - The Witch and Sicario in particular.
Looks like I need to work my way through Zerkalo's list, looks interesting.

Other suggestions:
Sci-fi: Arrival, Interstellar, Europa Report, Ex Machina, Prometheus etc

Martial arts: Ong-bak (Thai), Warrior King (Thai), The Raid/2 (Indo)

Thriller/Indie/Weird:
Valhalla Rising, Melancholia, The Page Turner (Fr), Lady Vengeance (Kor), Oldboy (Kor), Black Swan.

Work experience: Zero Dark Thirty, Sicario. Yet to see a good film about the war in Afghanistan. We have a slightly odd relationship with real recent history on screen imho.

Actually I would argue Valhalla Rising is just a really good historical film.

Valhalla Rising is great. I love that director, Nicolas Winding Refn. Started watching his TV series Too Old To Die Young with my sister too.

One of the best I've seen on Iraq/Afghanistan is Battle For Haditha by Nicholas Broomfield although it's in his usual slightly mockumentary style, they usually show on Channel 4 when they come out.


Actualyl some of his films are on youtube including this one 'Who Cares?' about slum clearance in Liverpool in the 1970s. It's only 15 minutes long.


Probably one of my favourite documentary makers, however, if you do make your way through my list you'll see a 1930s documentary by Luis Bunuel called Land Without Bread on there which pretty much invented the mockumentary. Although I feel another list coming on as 20 is not enough. :ROFLMAO: :)

Hi

Looking at your eclectic films, it appears you like various films that perhaps make you think....

Interstellar is very good science fiction and ends tie up
Arlington road - poor title, but you won’t view terrorism the same
A simple plan - choices and trust in relationships
Pushing tin - airport plane controllers stress levels
Glengarry glenross - old salespeople film being top dog or survive
Hacksaw Ridge - refusal to bear arms

Timeless films that are just brilliant

Shawshank redemption
Green mile
Band of brothers box set
Avatar for special effects especially if you got 3D glasses
Hunt for red october
Black hawk down
Silence of the lambs
Seven
Gladiator
The usual suspects
Godfather

Weird films a good watch in a funny old way.....

Face off as I keep having to remember who’s who lol
Con air ahead of its time with effects










Timeless
