  • ' Memories of Murder '
    — Bong Joon-ho

    Based on the real-life story of Korea’s first recorded serial killer, Memories of Murder raises some troublesome questions about the nature of justice and the fallibility of investigative police methods before DNA testing. Told almost entirely from the point of view of the police, it is unusually candid about the false starts and utter chaos of this particular case. The film is a tense, old-school crime film with a dark edge that also works as a hilariously funny comedy in which a police officer and his bumbling colleagues arrest and abuse various suspects.

     

     

  • ' Milk '
    — Gus Van Sant

    With Milk, Van Sant weds a straightforward linear narrative and high-profile cast with a subject matter that has genuine resonance for him. Using the account of one of USA’s first openly gay public officials Harvey Milk, who was assassinated in 1978, Van Santinvests the gay rights movement with mythic grandeur. As Milk, Sean Penn has an uncanny physical resemblance from some angles; but themost striking is the spiritual transformation. Playing the man who ultimately killed Milk, Josh Brolin’s remarkable performance is a chilling study in weakness. Van Sant mixes archival footage with new footage and it’s fascinating to see San Francisco in the ’70s.

     

  • ' Whatever Works '
    — Woody Allen

    In the first movie Allen has made in his native New York in five years, he teams up with another iconic New Yorker Larry David, who plays the misanthrope Boris Yellnikoff who encounters a young woman Melody and lets her into his life, even marrying her! Does the May-December romance ring a bell? But when is Allen never self-mocking? As Allen’s stand-in, Larry David never loses his own voice as the knobbly-kneed, plaid-shorts-wearing, know-it-all geezer who rather yells at than talk to people.

     

     

  • ' Synecdoche New York '
    — Charlie Kaufman

     Philip Seymour Hoffman and Catherine Keener play a pair of married artists, living in Schenectady, NY. She is a visual artist, and he is a director. The marriage is coming apart. She sometimes wishes he would die. In fact, he might be dying. He has a succession of alarming symptoms. He is working on a novelty production of “Death of a Salesman”. This is not a film about the theater, although a theater director is an ideal character for representing the role Kaufman thinks we all play. In its strange, comic and ultimately Kaufmanesque way, Synecdoche New York deals with the biggest terrors and issues of life: loneliness, sickness, futility, death.

     

     

  • ' The Host '
    — Bong Joon-ho

    Chemicals dumped into the Han River from a U.S. military base create a mutant creature. One day, the thing emerges from the water and starts eating passers-by. The pre-teen daughter of dimwit Seoul snack vendor Gang-du is abducted by the monster. Gang-du mounts a rescue operation with the help of his family, but the government is concerned about a SARS-like epidemic! Bong Joon-ho’s action-packed creature flick is comic and extreme. It is about fighting a monster and also a tribute to the family bond. The journey is daunting, exhausting and ultimately uplifting.

     

     

  • ' I Love You Phillip Morris '
    — Glenn Ficarra

    Carrey gives one of his most whacked-out and enjoyable performances as Steve, a real-life con man who ditches his marriage and middle-class existence for the eponymous Phillip, a sweet Southern boy he meets in prison. This is a Jim Carrey movie all the way. With his manic glare, ferociously eager smile, hyperkinetic body language and talent for instant self-transformation, Carrey has rarely been more charismatic on the screen. This is also a sexually forthright gay love story; transgressive, at least by Hollywood standards, for being blunt about the mechanics of gay sex as an episode of ”South Park”.

  • ' Waltz with Bashir '
    — Ari Folman

    Ari Folman was a soldier, and the animated Waltz with Bashir is a confessional account of his experience as a young soldier during the 1982 Israeli-Lebanese war. Structured like a conventional documentary, with Folman visiting old army friends and piecing together what they saw and remember, he gradually fits together a puzzle with the massacre at the center and his witnesses in concentric rinds at various distances. This is a brilliant piece showing the psychic damage of war.

     

     

  • ' The Counterfeiters '
    — Stefan Ruzowitzky

    In return for soft beds, good meals, acceptable working conditions, and the chance for a longer life, skillful counterfeiter Salomon Sorowitsch was willing to work for the Nazis. His fellow prisoners, Adolf Burger (whose memoir the film is based on), had a different opinion. Ruzowitzky depicts the care and attention to detail that went into the counterfeiting operation and presents a universal moral dilemma: is one’s own survival the most important priority of all? Provocative and compelling, Counterfeiter won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film.

     

  • ' Soundless Wind Chime '
    — Kit Hung

    Nominated for the 2009 Berlin Film Festival Teddy Award, Soundless Wind Chime chronicles the story between Ricky, a Chinese, and Pascal, a Swiss. Like any other couple they struggle though good times and rough patches. Years after the relationship ended, Ricky goes to Switzerland and encounters Ueli who looks just like Pascal. As this new relationship grows, we also learn about what really happened to Pascal and Ricky….
