Films of the Year (part 1)

It's nearly time for the end of year 'best of' movie list - and rest assured, I'll produce one in a week or so - still have to see 'Slumdog Millionaire', 'Revolutionary Road', 'Brad Pitt Tries For an Oscar Again', 'I've Loved You So Long', and 'Four Christmases' - so the list can't be completed just yet. But by way of a characteristic preview I can let you know that if you're a Roger Corman-trained guy best known for a cannibal movie, a French circus artiste with a taste for creative tightroping, or a college professor learning to play the djembe, you might have reason to be pleased with yourself. I'm off to see 'The Day The Earth Stood Still'. Will comment later.

I loved The Visitor too.

Alas, I haven't seen all that many films this year, but so far I think 'I've Loved You So Long' is at the top of my list. 'Waltz With Bashir' is up there too. The 2008 film that I haven't seen yet and most want to see is 'In Bruges'.

Did we talk about The Visitor at Greenbelt? As furious as it made me, I really loved it.

I think we did talk about 'The Visitor' - seen it three times, it makes me furious too - and I love it.
