Irreversible (2002)
Disturbingly beautiful and cruel with some absolutely fantastic camera work. Backwards storytelling really messes up your emotions.

Another gem from Kaufman's endlessly deep and meaningful stories. Really broke the romantic genre's mould.

Without a doubt the best epic big budget Hollywood film of the noughties. A real tour de force performance by Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis.

Before Sunset (2004)
This and the predecessor are one of those films that possess so many outer movie elements to me personally that they are really hard to evaluate on an objective manner. That is why I won't even bother. But despite those elements this is still a wonderfully simple and intensive film with some really convincing acting by Delpy and Hawke.

Another Kaufman, yes indeed. This movie-within-a-movie-within-a-play-within-a-life? (or something like that) is so utterly meaningful and beautiful that it breaks me even to think about it. In a good way.

LOTR did something that Harry Potters and other fantasy films based on books don't usually accomplish: it brought the books to life on the screen. I guess this installment represents the whole series.

My top 50 of the noughties. I acknowledge that I have kind of a deficiency on some of the (probably) great movies - especially from outside of the U.S. - but haven't had that much time or energy or interest to sink into the films of the noughties. Some brief comments of those movies that I still can remember something insightful (hah).
