I'm a huge Cormac McCarthy fan and Coen Brothers fans, but there's just a mood that they missed in No Country, the acting is superb, as is the look, but something about it felt empty to me (and no I'm not talking about the ending), Kelly McDonald's scenes are some of the best of the year, and I guess I won't complain when it wins truckloads of awards, but its not my top movie (and I'll be glad to see the sardonic humor of the Coens restored in this year's Burn After Reading)

For me I don't rank movies, or rate them because as with music and books its so subjective even from film to film, but if there was a best picture of the year it's absolutley David Fincher's Zodiac.

Others that I rank with me, in that you just can't get them out of your head:
Eastern Promises
American Gangster
Into the Wild (although it does suffer a bit from hero-worship)
Once
Sweeney Todd
Rescue Dawn
Lars and the Real Girl
Michael Clayton
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
Atonement
Lust, Caution
Hot Fuzz
Before the Devil Knows You're Dead
There Will Be Blood (I'm not a huge Anderson fan, and this is another case as with No Country where there's so much praise people just won't be underwhelmed and they love it no matter what, it's great and DDL proves once again he's the greatest working actor, but I wouldn't place it as better than some of the others)


Depending on if you call them 2006 or 2007 movies, these would be at the top:
The Wind that Shakes the Barley
The Lives of Others

Forget the year but that's the film she won it for.

I think I'm gonna watch Eastern Promises today on my computer and maybe something lighter afterward so I don't kill myself.

North by Northwest, perhaps?

An excellent and timeless classic sounds like just what you'll need after a slightly disappointing film LMP
