Scandinavian films – a list 2007

February 9, 2009 at 7:49 pm (Uncategorized)

Some time ago I was looking to broaden my knowledge (or reduce my great ignorance) on Scandinavian films (apart from Bergman and Kaurismaki!), so browsing the web I found this article reviewing the 30th Göteborg International Film Festival – The article gives a good overview of what was shown during the festivals. I have seen some of these movies adn generally I tend to agree with the reviewer – among the best it is certainly the brilliant norwegian Den brysomme mannen.

Roger Ebert’s The best films of 2008

December 14, 2008 at 1:20 pm (Movie Critics) (, , , )

(The following is Roger Ebert’s list of best movies for 2008. Personally, I agree with some of his choices, and less with others – Batman for instance. But I respect his judgement, he is one of the best critics around, and for some of you his list could be a good companion for choosing which film to see or rent…)

by Roger Ebert

In these hard times, you deserve two “best films” lists for the price of one. It is therefore with joy that I list the 20 best films of 2008, in alphabetical order. I am violating the age-old custom that film critics announce the year’s 10 best films, but after years of such lists, I’ve had it. A best films list should be a celebration of wonderful films, not a chopping process. And 2008 was a great year for movies, even if many of them didn’t receive wide distribution.
