Here is one of the most stunning sequences I’ve ever seen in a motion picture... the Vitajex commercial from Elia Kazan’s A Face in the Crowd. It’s a film I’ve been thinking about more and more as the political season rolls on.


1. Batman Begins (Christopher Nolan)
2. Brokeback Mountain (Ang Lee)
3. Grizzly Man (Werner Herzog)
4. A History of Violence (David Cronenberg)
5. No Direction Home (Martin Scorsese)
6. Good Night, and Good Luck (George Clooney)
7. Caché (Michael Haneke)
8. Sin City (Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez)
9. L'Enfant (Luc Dardenne & Jean-Pierre Dardenne)
10. Munich (Steven Spielberg)

I'm pretty sure I'm missing something.


1. City of God (Fernando Meirelles)
2. Signs (M. Night Shyamalan)
3. Gangs of New York (Martin Scorsese)
4. Punch-Drunk Love (Paul Thomas Anderson)
5. The Bourne Identity (Doug Liman)
6. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (Peter Jackson)
7. Road to Perdition (Sam Mendes)
8. The Pianist (Roman Polanski)
9. Minority Report (Steven Spielberg)
10. Talk to Her (Pedro Almodovar)

Here is Ramses 2002 top ten list.

Palin Time

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is far from qualified to be Vice President of the United Sates of America. McCain’s pick for VP is a cynical and insulting choice. It’s hilarious watching GOP foot soldiers on the cable networks bend over backwards defending her.
