Okay, so I didn't fall in love with all of them. But these eight movies definitely are worth a watch.
The Place Beyond the Pines - just gorgeous. Absolute perfection. Okay, I'll stop talking about Ryan Gosling (his character in this film is pretty much my ideal man) and focus on the actual movie. The story has a subtle power, the acting is perfectly fine-tuned (especially the young actors, both of whom really impressed me) and the direction is so good that I was surprised this movie hadn't had more buzz. Aside from the obvious - hello, Ryan Gosling AND Bradley Cooper? In the same film? - it also touches on the very interesting theme of guilt, exploring it beautifully. I absolutely recommend this film. Grade: 9.5
