My Netflix Queue

At Home

Happy Together: Two gay men in Argentina. Directed by Wong Kar-wai. Winner at Cannes. Sounds so cool, right. Well I've had it for almost 2 weeks now, and I only saw the first 3 minutes. Go figure.

Tell No One : I got this because of the reviews. And it was worth it. Although glad I waited for the DVD. Taut and tense thriller about a man suspected of his wife's murder, who might not be dead after all. And not as "French" as it could've been. Excellent performances all around.

Just returned

Jarhead : Surprisingly better than I expected. Of course all the chiseled shirtless men didn't hurt. But the movie itself looked fantastic, with eerie beautiful hued desert images. Fantastic performance by Peter Sarsgaard, why isn't he a bigger star?

Still in Queue

Milk: My choice for best film of 2008. want to see it again and see if there is any interesting commentary.

The Secret Life of Bees: Curious since it has a couple of thesps I like, J-Hud and Latifah. But it's been on "long wait" on my queue since its release. What's up Netflix.

Doubt: Deserves a second look on DVD. And I hear the commentary from director John Patrick Shanley is not to be missed.
