Bruno? I hate that piece of ****. Go School of Rock!

The weird thing is, the BRUNO on DVD with Commentary is much better than just Bruno. . . one of the rare times that happens.

Bruno was terrible. Borat was awesome.

Bruno was 100 times better than the overly staged Borat.

um, bruno was overly staged as well. but the shock value was played in a very mean way, which is why lots of people didn't like it.

I cannot remember laughing so much while watching Bruno. Lewd, rude an crude. Absolutly hilarious. Sacha has balls of steel (not literally as the film graphically shows) to pull the stunts in the movie.

A strangely attractive woman. Good picks mainly, but Bruno over Borat? I saw the subtitled version of Let the Right One In. That dubbed version sounds horrible.

Strangely attractive in the sense she reminds me more of my Dad than my Mom?

There's appeal there. She seems sort of... strict?

Let the Right One In was a great flick but I would never watch it dubbed. Strangely I haven't seen Bruno yet, I will need to fix that.

Well this sure is a unique list, at first I thought she was picking modern films because she said "today" in the beginning, so I suppose I couldn't agree with Bruno. I didn't like it much.

I didn't know Let the Right One In was ever dubbed..

Interesting list, and great to see Let The Right One In!! One of the best films of all-time there! Great actress with great taste in film, how about that?

I think Tilda Swinton was brilliant as Gabriel in Constantine.

finally! someone whose five favourites i'm truly interested in knowing about. she's incredible. i like 'au hasard balthazar' -- the donkey must be naturally talented, considering bresson's choices of non-actors. (should watch it again.) and she picked a true masterpiece as number 1!

can't wait to see bela tarr's 'the man from london', which she stars in, and i also could kill to see 'i am love'.

throw an onion said this in its review of 'benjamin button', describing it as an "artsy flick":
"I love a good art film almost as much as I love a good action flick." and, to deepen the ignorance, "When I look for an art film I look for something that balances great quality with a good level of entertainment value."

Pretentious is officially the least credible criticism on the planet, barely edging out "overrated".

by the way, if people here want to see 'au hazard balthasar' because the images shown in the video look "cute"... let me warn that no, it's not a "cute" film.

BRUNO is one of her favorite films?!? This from the woman who did such great work with Derek Jarman and others? I feel like we need to sit her down and have a long talk about movie history.
