The Raid: Redemption is the best example of a "bottle movie" I've ever seen. The plot is straightforward, but the action is ridiculously phenomenal. One of the best straightforward action movies ever made.
While it may not be my favorite (still top twenty though), Tsai Ming Liang's masterpiece Stray Dogs is, without question, the best film I've ever seen. With little to no dialogue and still shots lasting up to eighteen minutes apiece, this stunningly beautiful example of social-realistic minimalism transcends the screen and touches your very soul. Some may find it's relentlessly uneventful pacing tedious and boring, but as long as you embrace the story, you'll succumb to it's telepathic grip sure enough.
Damien Chazelle?s gut-wrenchingly intense tale of a drummer?s pursuit of perfection delivers on a Hitchcockian level. Anchored by two career-defining performances and one of the best climaxes you?re likely to see all year, Whiplash is a must see.
Whether it's in a word or it's in a look, you can't get rid of the babadook... Possibly the most complete horror film since Joon-ho Bong's 2007 masterpiece The Host, Jennifer Kent's chilling children's book will leave you looking in your closet at night.
