Note : Paul Thomas Andeson is one of the best directors around and this is his best movie so far. Fascinating characters and stories, amazing directing, all actors give very good perfomances (Tom Cruise is maybe insane but definitely can act). I loved it.

Note : This is the last movie directed by Stanley Kubrick and many people think it is his least succesfull one.

I think it is a great movie. As usual, you have the incredible Kubrick direction, completely flawless with obsessive attention to the details. On the other hand, you have this fascinating story which almost works like a captivating Hollywood thriller. I say "almost" because at the end, there is no big chase, rooftop final battle or big twist "He is the one! He did it !". There is actually no real answer and I think many people were really frustrated by that because at the end of the movie, everything is supposed to be solved. I think it was just brilliant.

Note : Hilary Swank gives here her breakthrough perfomance. This story is really heartbreaking and the directing is very good as well. Definitely worth a look.

Note : I always found David Cronenberg was one the most interesting directors around. With this movie, it didn't disappoint me. Half creepy, half intellectual but always challenging.

Note : I remember when I saw it in the movie theater. I was in the USA on holiday and went with some friends to see it. I have never heard of it so I was completely "hypefree". I found it really clever and scary. Once again, the proof that, to scare people, you don't have to show close-ups of bloody killings and/or mutilations. The less you see, the more you get scared.

The Insider (1999)


Note : I really like Michael Mann and try to watch all his movies. This one is one of his best. The perfomances with Al Pacino and Russell Crowe are top and the story is very interesting. Definitely worth a look.

Note : OOOOOhhhhh.... This movie is really heavy. You should be aware of this before watching it. The perfomances are very good and so is the directing. An heartbreaking story.

Note : I don't know which one I prefer between this one and the first Toy Story. Anyway, it is definitely one of the best sequel ever made, even among not animated movies. Definitely worth a look and a must see for any fan of animated movies.
