    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!

    Default more melville

    hello, new to the forum. looks pretty cool.

    "Le Cercle rouge" was my dad's fave movie (i am a french man living in london). it is beautiful even if probably Melville's less abstract movie. Have you seen : 'Le Samourai", his most stylised work, or "un flic", less perfect but great nonetheless.

    there is a double dvd un flic/ bob le flambeur, available in the uk.

    le samourai is available in the US, criterion if i remember. copies possible (swaps)/

    Default other recommendations

    apart from melville (see below)

    George Romero's 1974 "Martin" has just been reissued in France. his fave movie. quite interesting. quite different to his other stuff.

    Nicholas Ray's "Johnny guitar" is my fave ever.

    also "indagine su un cittadino al di sopra di ogni sospetta" (investigation on a citizen above suspicion). incredible 1970 political italian movie. i have been looking for a copy on VHS/DVD for years and years. any help?

    What a great film! that home invasion scene is brilliant... and the ending!!!

    One of the most idiosyncratic horrors ever made.

    Post Awesome film

    I would have to say the best film I have seen recently is Show me love directed by Lukas Moodyson

    It's a story of 1st love and the awkwardness that comes with being a teenager, it's sweet and moving...
