Top 10 best movies 2002
5346 7.3 81. Catch Me If You Can (2002)
1429 7.2 8.12. Bowling for Columbine (2002)
2792 8.3 8.73. City of God (2002)
78 7.8 7.54. In This World (2002)
Note : I think Michael Winterbottom is a very amazing director who deserves much more recognition.
This movie was the winner of the Golben Bear at the 2003 Berlin film festival.
This movie shows how a young boy (14-15 years old, I think) goes from Pakistan to England, illegally. It is so dangerous, harrowing and just plain horrible. After seeing this movie, I'll bet you will have some doubt about the anti-immigration laws . Do they have any purpose, considering that if people live in despair, they will risk anything, even their life to find a better place to live with hope of a future ?
3542 8.2 8.55. The Pianist (2002)
Note : Roman Polanski is one of my favorite directors and still in 2000's he keeps making great pictures. This story is harrowing and Adrien Brody gives a huge perfomance (what has happened to him ? Seven years later, starring in "Predators'... What the f*ck!). A great achievement.
111 6.6 7.36. Amen. (2002)
720 7.9 8.17. Infernal Affairs (2002)
1837 7.3 7.98. Hero (2002)
422 7.4 7.79. Whale Rider (2002)
1820 7.2 7.710. Adaptation (2002)
Note : I know a lot of people trash Nicolas Cage and it is true that many of his movies are worthless. However, I still believe he is a very talented actor and from time to time, out of nowhere, he gives one of the best perfomance of the year. This movie is a good example of this "phenomenom". Of course, Cage is not the only actors giving a good perfomance in this movie. The writing and directing are amazing as well. Definitely worth a look.
