Top 40 Films 56 – 60 Reviewed in 2012

~ ~ ~

56.- The Wind Will Carry Us –1999. A documentarian from Tehran finds himself in a rural Iranian village to film its post mortem death rituals, but the old woman simply will not die. Very funny and radiantly beautiful.

57.- Tinker, Taylor, Soldier, Spy – 2011. Gary Oldman takes this story to the screen once again. He is one of the most remarkable actors alive, always dangerous, always true. It’s a John Le Carrée spy thriller. Colin Firth, Toby Jones, Ciarán Hinds, John Hurt support.

58.- To Rome, With Love – 2012. We have the genius of Judy Davis to amaze us as Woody Allen’s wife, sitting there doing nothing, but stealing every scene. Roberto Benigni, Alec Baldwin and the juicy Penelope Cruz support in four unrelated delightful stories.

59.- Trouble With The Curve – 2012. Clint Eastwood directs and stars as a baseball talent scout, rivaled by his own daughter, Amy Adams, the most versatile actress on screen today. John Goodman, always a welcome presence, supports.

60.- Two-Lane Blacktop – 1971. Warren Oates is the reason to view it, but the story of this road-race has great beauty, fun, surprises, and a great theme. Let’s talk about what it is.
