Sorry to keep going on about this film club but it is a novelty to be able to rent things again. We watched Borat yesterday evening and, as funny as I found it, I did think it went on a bit too much. I find Baron Cohen's humour best in small doses and I think the film format doesn't really work very well for him. I liked it best when he was just starting out in the UK and he went out interviewing politicians as his first incarnation which was Ali G. Now that did make me laugh.
Anyway, I now have a list of 40 films at Glowria and I would like to find out the films that you've seen over the last five years or so that really made a good impression. I've looked at some of the 'best film' lists and I've seen lots of them on there but it is the indie sort of film I am after. To give you a better idea, two of my most-watched films (we have hundreds of dvds here) are Garden State and Paris Texas. My favourite foreign films of the last few years are Tell No One (Ne le dis a personne) and The Lives of Others (Das Leben der Anderen).
So, fellow bloggers, must- see film titles please.
