    Default Films you've seen recently and would unreservedly recommend:

    "Le Cercle Rouge"

    This is a great super-cool French crime movie:

    Watched "Brokeback Mountain" the other day. Yes, it is a Hollywood film, but don't let that put anyone off. It is a fantastic film and deserves all of the awards and kudos it is getting. Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal are fantastic, understated direction, and a subtle script. Fantastic stuff.

    Ah, that's the number one film on my must see list - where did you get to see it? Is there a good DVD version around?

    Originally saw it on Channel 4 about 10 years back. The DVD is widely available.

    Ernest Hemingways 'The Killers' the first version by Sodmak, film noir at it's best.
    Ossessione-(dir.Visconti)-seen 'The Postman Always Rings Twice' ? this is the Italian neo-realist version and it's astounding and so well shot.
    The Ipcress File-funny and dark, how does Caine get away with being so wooden, he does though.

    Sorry if I ignored the 'recently' bit of the thread... tbh, I havent seen anything Id unreservedly recommened for some time now, though I dont watch that many films...

    Land of the Dead was probably the best thing Ive seen in a while, but it wasnt that good!

    "Le Cercle Rouge" absolutely rules. One of the only movie posters I've ever seen where two of the leading men have moustaches, and yet look super super cool.

    I think Cache is just great...deeply unsettling, like all of Haneke's films...but not as brutal...you really have to consider why you find it disturbing...

    has anybody here seen Funny Games?...I am so glad to have watched it, but let me tell you, the second I finished the tape, I rewound it and ran it back to the shop...I did not want that thing in my house another minute!
