In the theatre: Skyfall. I loved it. Love Daniel Craig as Bond, love Bardem as the villain, and loved the whole "back-to-origins" idea.
On DVD: I've just watched the Russian film by Nikita Mikhalkov, Burnt By the Sun.
What a wonderful, amazing movie. I absolutely love Oleg Menchikov (such an underrated actor, just because he's Russian and Hollywood directors can't be bothered to cast actual Russians in their films...). Menchikov is gorgeous, multi-talented, and incredibly charismatic. I was also very pleasantly surprised by the performance of Mr Nikita Mikhalkov himself. Very moving, subtle and absolutely spot on. His daughter was also both adorable and incredibly mature for a child actress.
Really, this film was a wonderful surprise.
I'm planning to see Django Unchained, and Lincoln (I'm a huge Daniel Day-Lewis fan).
yeah that was a great movie, one of my favorite Russian movies and better than the Barber of Sibera, which I feel Mikhalkov did to present to Westerners an idea about Russia.
Burnt By the Sun is quite old though, pity that you haven't seen it before. I think it also has a sequel that I haven't seen yet.
It has some great moral ambiguity themes, neither of the two male characters is completely wrong or right. However, the character played by Menchikov is the one who can see a bigger picture from the very start.
The movie is a rare combination of good cast, acting, cinematography, script and directing, the pace is so well crafted, everything just clicked. I saw it at least 3 times and I could watch it again.
