    These should hit the spot: Cure - Kurosawa : A fantastic psycho/horror flick by the director of "Bright Future". The Vanishing - Sluizer : Will still give you the creeps years after you've watched it. Tell No One - Canet : Outrageously enjoyable psychological thriller.
    Cure and The Vanishing (the original) are fantastic. Both have similarly slow tempos that build the suspense to an incredible level. I've been planning to see Tell No One - it was an enjoyable, if somewhat formulaic, novel.

    watched Deathly Hallows Pt 1 last night, really really good. Not quite as good as it's predecessor, but I think it's still too early to judge having not seen Pt 2 yet.

    ^ and speaking of Anne H, saw Devil Wears Prada finally last week. was decently entertaining, considering it's a chick flick and all. first time i've seen her in anything, she's cute but i don't understand why the rabid fanbase she has on SF.

    also watched London Blvd. last week, was on the lower end of being decent. Keira Knightley was smokin though so at least it had something going for it.

    Somewhere, Sofia Coppola latest. STephen Dorff as troubled movie star. Not as bad as it could have been if made by certain other directors. Nice F430, too.

    Unrelated, a woman friend invited to join upper middle class English family on holiday in Tuscany. Quite nice and well made. One of few movies I've seen without any music soundtrack whatever..

    This week I have The Beat That My Heart Skipped and Of Gods And Men.

    watched Battle:LA last night after reading nothing but negative remarks about it and even hearing it compared to Team America. I have to say I had really low expectations going in but it was surprisingly decent. I suppose my opinion may be slightly biased as I was able to draw huge comparisons to the Call of Duty franchise. 6/10.

    I just finished watching "Notebook on Cities and Clothes" by Wim Wenders. Definitely in the "watch again" category.

    Mana: Beyond Belief - A random Netflix Instant choice.

    This was a cool little documentary that could have been great with the middle 30 minutes cut out. There is no narration, and it's best watched in a dark room with a spliff by your side. Currently I really want to make a pilgrimage to the Forevertron...

    Wim Wenders rules. His films are strange but always worth watching.

    Rabbit Hole. Amazing performances in this film. Very heavy stuff, definitely not a date movie.
