David: My favorite comedy of all time, though it’s so much more. I think it’s the film that I best relate to (short of making my own movie, of course). My history with this film could fill a novella.
Taos: Fun and quirky with a dash of Bill Murray is the way to go. Most people won’t like it, and that is ok.
Taos: The most genuine romantic movie ever. This music is perfect and the relationship feels real, which technically it was I think.
David: A lovely film that deserves to be seen by everyone. Would’ve slipped me by for ages if not for Taos’ review prodding me to seek it out. (You win this one you right bastard!)
Taos: Rather than dispense with another superlative, I shall simply say that It was one of the few mystery/suspense movies that I actually felt I was along for the ride on. Like the protagonist, I may never know exactly what happened.
David: Takes an enthralling tale built from elements of classic film noir and frames it in a way that constantly challenges our perceptions (and on a number of levels). It’s still just as exciting today as it was 10 years ago. Nolan and Pearce desperately need to reunite, whether in the next Batman or something else entirely. And I desperately need to remember what I did with my DVD…
David: My favorite movie of all time.
Taos: Everything the character experiences, I empathize with. You feel the same hurt he feels on his tragic attempt in the name of love. Beautiful. Clint Mansell adds to the dream-like film I never wanted to wake from.
Taos: Lighthearted and full of whimsy. Put this on during a bad day and It will make everything better. I promise. One of the few optimistic films of the decade.
David: The first time seeing this, I’m guessing someone could’ve taken a snapshot of me at almost any given moment during the movie and I’d have had a big stupid grin on my face. It loses something considerable the second round, or maybe it was me who had lost something in the meantime. Regardless, I’ll always treasure that first encounter, that magic we’re all searching for when we go to the movies. ❤ Audrey Tautou.
