Top Five Films of September, 2012
Definitely a smart psychological thriller that keeps you guessing. Michael Douglas turns in one of his best performances; the film also features the underrated Deborah Kara Unger.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Definitely unintentional to watch two David Fincher films in a row, but both delivered. Also worth watching is the original Swedish The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009). There are differences that set both films apart, but they both follow the same storyline.
Undisputedly, the best Indian film I've seen. It's a great thriller and doesn't have any of the cliches of the genre.
The Landlord (1970)
Definitely Hal Ashby's best film, it was also his first. It features non-stop laughs and delves right into class and race issues.
Yes, I've seen films by Satyajit Ray and Ritwik Ghatak. Haven't seen anything by Mrinal Sen. Just Aparna Sen (Mr. & Mrs. Ayer). Not sure if they are related. Kahaani was a great film. It probably has something for everyone.
