A very interesting documentary looking at the lives of some backing singers and their struggles to emerge from the shadows. With heavyweight talking heads of the ilk of Springsteen, Wonder and Jagger this is a revealing insight into the lives of some top drawer singers who for one reason or another didn't quite make it to the big time despite ferocious talent.
A kind of post Tarantino/Elmore Leonard heist movie that refuses to glamorise the dark criminal underbelly but shows it as a series of committee business transactions. The backdrop of the financial crisis bailout is intelligently delivered and there are superb performances from Pitt and especially James Gandolfini.
A heart wrenching Dickensian story of a poor farmer and his family trying to make an honest living in a dark and corrupt Manila. Wonderful cinematography as Ellis successfully portrays the immense labyrinth that is Manila. Wonderful lead performances and a denouement that packs a punch.
A very absorbing documentary looking into a man's overwhelming obsession to paint a Vermeer. The questions raised by the film are intriguing and Teller is a very deft director.
