No love for The Lovely Bones? Stanley Tucci as a child rapist and murderer has me all intrigued. Plus Brent Spiner said that Mark Wahlberg is fantastic in it, and Brent is fucking Data, for fuck's sake.

I'd add my list, but it doesn't belong in this thread. Maybe it should be a new one?

I think The Lovely Bones looks interesting enough. Something about the trailer rubbed me the wrong way though, maybe it was the 1st-person Tucci shaky cam or Marky Mark's ridiculous blonde wig. I don't know. I'd like to see it at some point, but I don't think I'll rush out the first week like I would for the ones I listed.

So, The English Patient was stunning. Thought it was a spectacular movie.

Particularly mesmerized by Juliette Binoche's performance. Damn, it was good. She had such a sympathetic way about her and she completely owned the film, for me, from her introductory scene until the very end. And, even though the Fiennes/Scott Thomas affair took up the majority of the story, I was just as satisfied and moved by the romance between Binoche and Sayid.

I saw it when it first was released,

I do remember thinking it was an excellent film in many regards.

Glad to hear it still holds up.

There just aren't many films these days (or ever, really) that have such an epic scope but also such a keen sense of the little details. Every technical aspect of this film is absolutely top-notch, all done by some of the best people in the business. And if you've read the source novel, it's just a wonder Minghella was able to adapt it into something resembling a normal film, while still retaining the poetry of the original work.

And, of course, the acting. Dafoe deserves a mention as well, and Ralph Fiennes never gets enough credit for playing under so much makeup for half the film. Binoche is the emotional hook and is perfect, Scott-Thomas is just ravishing classic glamour. And Sayid is good, even though he doesn't get to snap anyone's neck with his legs this time, though his part was greatly reduced from the novel.

Really glad you liked it, GAF. And I'm sure you realize that seeing it again after you know all the little puzzle pieces is a completely different (but equally enjoyable) experience.

Doesn't Lance still need to see this?

I don't know about your son, but I've never seen it either. Elaine Benes scared me off of it. "Elaine, I hope you're watching the clothes, because I can't take my eyes off the passion".
