Feb. 2013 Movie Journal - Xanadon't (18 movies items)

" Here's a movie that's been on my "to do list" ever since it appeared on Roger Ebert's Best of 2008 list. And then, more or less by accident, I watched two other films from director Ramin Bahrani-- Goodbye Solo and Man Push Cart-- and was very impressed. Still, Chop Shop went unwatched, lingering in my queue for years. Thanks to "

300 From The First Decade Of The New Millennium (300 movies items)

" A film in the spirit of City Of God or Kids, in which it comes as very close to seeming like it's a documentary. At certain points of the movie, it feels as though this is happening in real life. The storyline's non-linear structure helps to emphasize this feel, but there's enough there to sense that a tale is indeed unfolding. Great acting from all involved. (And another film that, despite it's 2007 list date, wasn't released until the year following.) "
