The Return
The Return (2004)
14 months ago via Flixster

(Vozvrashcheniye) Beautifully shot, this movie holds a surprise ending which might be difficult to anticipate, but is finally most welcome. Sometimes it may be better that a man who abandons his family not return. Big points to Konstantin Lavronenko for playing this bastard of a father to perfection.

Old Men in New Cars
14 months ago via Flixster

This group pretty much has the action formula down (See them all together with In China They Eat Dogs). The dark humor is good here as well. Big points for the prison escape and the electrocution scene. Most importantly, Kim Bodnia really is a fine actor. I'd like to find something where he can demonstrate his depth and, especially, his range.

Flower Drum Song
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Plenty of great songs. My favorite is probably "Love Look Away," and it's tough to beat the appeal of a young Nancy Kwan in her absolute prime. Amazing to see Miyoshi Umeki in a romantic lead as well. I will miss her.

Philomena (2013)
4 years ago via Flixster

The best of the nominated films I've seen so far. If August: Osage County had been nominated as well, it would be a tie for these two. Hats off to Dench and Coogan for their transformative performances.

August: Osage County

A quiet tragedy with a great cast. Why wasn't this one nominated for an Oscar? You must see this to see how good Meryl Streep is in it.
