The Prestige (2006)


Note : This movie was almost perfect. The story, the acting and the direction was so great, during the whole movie, my heart was boucing and I had a terrible headache. Unfortunately, the end was a little bit disappointing. I won't say why because I don't want spoil yo it. A part from that, it is a fascinating movie.

United 93 (2006)


Note : This movie is a powerful, harrowing experience. There is no explanation provided for why the protagonists acted in anyway. It just works as a great mirror showing the chaos in which our world is evolving. A great achievement.

Note : I just love this movie. It is easily my favorite psychopath/serial killer movie (much better than The Silence of Lamds or Seven, for example).

Babel (2006)


Note : Since Amores Perros, I try to catch every movie directed Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. This one didn't disappoint me. The directing and acting is very good and the story is just fascinating.

The Fountain (2006)


Note : This movie is really an acquired taste. It is really an acquired taste but I liked it. A very unique and poetic experience.

Note : I really liked this movie. The only low point is that it was very overhyped before I watched it and my expectations were kind of huge. So, it wasn't great as I hoped but still it was very good. Great directing, very good acting and very interesting story. Definitely worth it.

Note : Marc Forster is a very interesting director and he didn't disappoint my this gem. Finally, Will Ferrell finally stars in a very good movie... Loved the concept, a very original movie.
johanlefourbe's rating:


Note : I did't expect it to be so funny and so good... Sacha Baron Cohen manages to create a character rather despicable but, in a weird way, you can help it having sympathy for him... And quite often, the 'real' people around Borat are even funnier and more despicable. I really liked it.

Notes: Shane Meadows managed to set his movie in a specific historical time and place (England in the 80โ€™s) and he also managed to create some fascinating characters to watch. Basically, it shows how dreary the life was for some people in England during that time (is it really any better nowadays?) and how slowly some of them moved towards the National Front and their extreme right wing ideas. This movie displayed also an interesting notion which I wasnโ€™t aware about those skinheads. Indeed, apparently, the skinheads were at first more about a specific lifestyle (music, clothing, haircuts,โ€ฆ) than some actual ideology but, at some point, when some of them needed a goal, a purpose, they shifted towards right-wing politics and, above all, violence towards minorities. However, this flick was not just about history and it also dealt with some very interesting 3 dimensional characters. I mean, instead of showing us some skinheads breaking havoc, they displayed that they had a very strong sense of community but also that they didnโ€™t have much purpose and that they were terribly confused.

Half Nelson (2006)


Note : Ryan Gosling was quite awesome and delivered a great performance earning a academy award nomination in the process. All in all, I thought it was such a sad and rather depressing movie but so spellbinding to watch.
