Tropical Malady, notwithstanding an underwhelming premiere at Cannes, is one of the most admired of 21st century films, if you have happened to see it.   Directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul, maker of 2002's Blissfully Yours, it sort of starts like a Thai Brokeback Mountain about a soldier who meets a country boy while on this official duties.  Unlike Weerasethakul's previous movie, which included explicit sex, Tropical Malady is much more tasteful and restrained.  But instead of Jake Gyllenhall being murdered, about halfway through the movie he sort of turns into a tiger, and the movie becomes distinctly stranger.

Innocence, which got a supporting actress nomination for Marion Cotillard, is one of the stranger movies of 2004.  It starts with an isolated girl's dormitory.  Where the students arrive in coffins, and play in strange, cloistered gardens.  It's based on a story by Frank Wedekind, from whose work Pandora's Box was based on.

 

maxresdefault.jpg

 

The Weeping Meadow is a Greek film by the important, but crucially underappreciated in America, director Theo Angelopoulous.  It was actually supposed to be the first part of a trilogy.  The second movie was made, but Angelopoulos was hit by a car and killed before he could complete the third movie.  The movie, like many of Angelopoulos' deals with Greek history.  It starts with refugees expelled from long standing Greek communities in Turkey after Greece's decisive defeat by Turkey in the war they fought shortly after the first world war.  The movie deals with a love story between a refugee girl and the boy in the family that takes her in.  As they engage in an unhappy romance, with suitors forced on the young woman, Greece goes through the Depression, the second world war, and the civil war that followed it.  One part of the film is that the part of Greece where the characters live often floods, so we get shots like the one above. 

 

trilogy-1-the-weeping-meadow.jpg

 

Here is the couple, with the woman being one of my runner-ups for best actress.  The movie focuses on her, since she is often separated from her lover/husband, and her sons get involved in the civil war.  The movie is filled with beautiful, comparatively spare tracking shots, and it ends with a homage to Sansho the Bailiff.  The movie, along with others Angelopoulos made, came out on DVD from New Yorker Video, which unfortunately went bankrupt.  However, it is currently available on youtube with English subtitles, and can be seen below:

My Summer of Love is a British drama about an unusual friendship between two women, one from a poor and one from a rich family. Natalie Press (left) wants to escape from her family background and has a demonic side. She makes fun of the religious obsession of her brother (Paddy Considine). Emily Blunt (right) plays a spoiled brat and mythomaniac who uses her friend as a toy. Behind the initial summery mood frustrations are hidden. The Yorkshire moors provide a beautiful background.

 

BIGMy%2BSummer%2Bof%2BLove4.jpg.jpg

 

Mean Girls is one of the ultimate teen comedies. Screenwriter Tina Fey, who plays a teacher, took inspiration from Rosalind Wiseman's Queen Bees and Wannabes, a non-fiction book about cliques in high school. Lindsay Lohan plays the outsider trying to fit in. She had a talent for comedy, but some of the supporting actors had a more steady career afterwards: Lizzy Caplan as the art freak, Amanda Seyfried and Lacey Chabert as the wannabes and Rachel McAdams as the obnoxious queen bee. The world leaders should watch this movie to learn how to solve their conflicts.

 

advice-friendship-advice-2014-06-mean-gi

 

Brothers (Brødre) is a Danish drama by Susanne Bier. An officer returns from Afghanistan to find his wife carrying on with his younger brother. Ulrich Thomsen (right) plays the officer who struggles with a war trauma. Nikolaj Lie Kaas (left) is the good-for-nothing trying to improve. Connie Nielsen plays the wife who has to choose between these two opposites.

Kings and Queen got both my actor and supporting actress awards.  You can see the two winners, Mathieu Amalric and Catherine Deneuve here.  In this long, rich, emotional drama Amalric, who has appeared in several of director Arnaud Desplechin's movies, in particular in this character, has been committed to a mental hospital.  Denueve plays a psychiatrist there, while Emmanuelle Devos, engaged to another man, worried about her dying her father, thinks Amalric may be the best father for her son from another marriage.

Nobody Knows got my juvenile performance award for Yuya Yagira who plays the eldest son of a mother whose four children have separate fathers and who one day abandons them.  He tries to muddle through with his three siblings.  It doesn't work out.

Note: Rory O'Shea was Here was the US title for the film known in England as Inside I'm Dancing. They are one and the same film, as well as being my favorite film of 2004. It never received the audience it deserved, as it grossed less than $25,000 in the US.

These are the 2004 movies I have not seen:

 

Birth

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason

Clean

The Consequences of Love

Enduring Love

5x2

Kings and Queen

Looking for Alexander

Mean Creek

Moolaade

Saraband

36 Quai des Orfevres

Two Brothers

Yes

 

I haven't seen that many from your list, Lawrence and not many of those figured into my own performance lists.

clean2-194x129.jpg

Maggie Cheung made my top ten best actresses list for Clean.  Next to that honour was her win at the Cannes Film Festival. :lol: This was a very different part for Cheung.  She plays a heroin addict who is blamed in the overdose death of her husband.  Her in-laws take custody of her child when she is in prison.  Nick Nolte is her father-in-law!  She is eventually released under the provision that she get 'clean.'

36-dvd-filme-frances-com-gerard-depardie

Gerard Depardieu made my runner-up list in the French police thriller 36 Quai des Orfevres.  It is a fairly bizarre tale of two corrupt cops who are both up for the same promotion.  Daniel Auteuil is Depardieu's competition.  It is an opportunity to see Depardieu play a ruthless character and he does not disappoint.

Yes%20-%20Joan%20Allen%20Thinking%20Somt

And the last of those that I happened to mention is Joan Allen in Sally Potter's Yes.  It is a very odd film and a challenge for the actors in it I'm sure as they speak the entire film in iambic pentameter.  Allen plays 'She' a woman trapped in a loveless marriage who has an inter-racial affair.  I wasn't crazy about the film but Joan Allen impressed me as she so often does.

I've seen many on your list, Bogie.

 

 

Anchorman is a silly, absurd comedy about TV news in the 1970s. The all-boys club of sexist machismo is upended when new reporter Christina Applegate is hired. Will Ferrell, as the alpha-male anchorman, gives his definitive portrayal of the clueless blowhard who thinks he's the smartest guy in the room, but obviously isn't. I also nominated Steve Carell as the weatherman, who seems to suffer some sort of mental deficiencies.

 

anchorman-02.jpg

 

 

 

 

"I love lamp"  -Brick

 

"I ate a whole bunch of fiberglass insulation.  It wasn't cotton candy like that guy said.  My stomach's itchy." -Brick

 

"It's called 'Sex Panther' by Odeon.  It's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good. They've done studies you know. 60% of the time, it works every time." -Brian Fantana

 

"Take me to pleasure town!" -Veronica

 

"I'm Ron Burgundy.  Go ' f '* yourself, San Diego." -Ron Burgundy, who will read anything put on the teleprompter.  Veronica, in an act of spite, wrote this on the teleprompter, knowing that Ron will read it without even realizing what he's said.

 

"I'm Ron Burgundy?" -Ron Burgundy, again who will read anything on the teleprompter.  Somebody in this case made a punctuation typo.

 

"I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany." -Ron Burgundy.

 

This movie is hilarious.  I can watch it over and over.  

 

My favorite part is during Ron Burgundy's jazz flute solo when he pops in under the bathroom stall door while a man is using the toilet.

Undertow with Josh Lucas and Devon Alan

I've seen many on your list, Bogie.

 

The Alamo was an attempt to take a more historically accurate look at the famous battle. Billy Bob Thornton plays Davy Crockett. In contrast to John Wayne's rather...well, John Wayne version of the outdoorsman and politician, Thornton plays him as a raconteur and good old boy who tries to keep morale up as much as he tried to fight the Mexican army. It's a more nuanced look at an American legend that avoids being disrespectful.

Anchorman is a silly, absurd comedy about TV news in the 1970s. The all-boys club of sexist machismo is upended when new reporter Christina Applegate is hired. Will Ferrell, as the alpha-male anchorman, gives his definitive portrayal of the clueless blowhard who thinks he's the smartest guy in the room, but obviously isn't. I also nominated Steve Carell as the weatherman, who seems to suffer some sort of mental deficiencies.

 

anchorman-02.jpg

 

Dawn of the Dead is a standalone remake of George Romero's 1978 sequel to Night of the Living Dead. This is the one where a group of zombie apocalypse survivors take refuge in a shopping mall. That central premise is really the only thing carried over from the earlier film, as this time there are more characters, different situations, and even the zombies have changed (they run!). Sarah Polley  is the quiet center to the film, and her wide-eyed intensity helps ground the proceedings.

 

hqdefault.jpg

 

Dead Man's Shoes is a British thriller about a former soldier played by Paddy Considine who returns to his hometown to avenge an injustice visited upon his mentally-challenged younger brother. Considine is often terrifying as a guy who may just be worse than the villains he's stalking. Many people don't like this movie, and it's not an easy watch, but Considine is tremendous.

 

dead-mans-shoes-11.png

 

Dear Frankie is another British movie. Single mother Emily Mortimer keeps lying to her deaf young son Jack McElhone about where his father is. She hires Gerard Butler to pretend to be the boy's dad home on shore leave, and the expected romantic developments commence. It's better than it sounds.

 

p01h5g8j.jpg

 

The Machinist is a very dark drama about a worker in the title profession played by Christian Bale. He's wracked with mental anguish about something (which is slowly revealed during the movie), and he hardly eats or sleeps, resulting in a horrifyingly emaciated form. This was the first of Bale's extreme body transformations, and it's really disturbing, but he also lends the role the emotional nuance that raises it above being just an endurance stunt.

 

Christian-bale.jpg

 

Millions  is a family comedy from director Danny Boyle about a kid (Alex Etel) that finds a bag of British pounds in the waning days before the switchover to the Euro. First he only tells his brother, but eventually his hard-pressed dad (James Nesbitt) learns of it. I don't normally like feel-good stuff, but this is an exception.

 

Millions.jpg

 

Napoleon Dynamite was a surprise big-hit comedy about the title dorky high school nerd (Jon Heder) and the strange people around him. I nominated Heder, as he really sells the oddball Napoleon, but I also nominated Aaron Ruell as his equally dorky brother Kip.

 

13.jpg

 

Spartan is from David Mamet, a thriller featuring that old stand-by plot of "the President's daughter has been kidnapped!" Val Kilmer stars as the former US Marine brought in to find her. Kilmer delivers Mamet's unique dialogue quirks with conviction, and there's one stand-out original scene where he's discovered while searching a house, and his response is something I've never seen before.

 

2004_spartan_002.jpg

 

Finally, The Village was the fourth in writer-director M. Night Shyamalan's "big twist" movies, and the weakest one yet. The title location is a seemingly primitive, pilgrim/pioneer enclave of families. Built in a large clearing, the village elders warn not to enter the surrounding woods, as there are "things" in there that will kill them. Bryce Dallas Howard is the headstrong blind daughter of of the chief elder. When the things in the woods start killing people, breaking their truce, she takes it upon herself to try and solve the problem. The movie is slow and doesn't make sense, and the big twist is fairly easy to suss out. But Howard is very good in this, and I still think it's her best performance.

Machuca is a film about the tragedy of September 11. Yes, the day when Pinochet and his followers seized power and Salvador Allende officially committed suicide. The events in Chile in 1973 are shown through the eyes of three children (Matías Quer in the leading role, Manuela Martelli and Ariel Mateluna in the title role). One is from a rich white family, the other two are poor. Their friendship became possible under one regime and will be tested under another. The children act very naturally, it's as if you were there.

In Birth Nicole Kidman plays a widow who's approached by a 10-year old boy who claims to be her deceased husband. The boy is annoying and intrusive, which is perfect for this role. With short hair Nicole Kidman looks less glamorous than usual. She expresses feelings of disbelieve and confusion. Lauren Bacall, who would turn 80 that year, plays Kidman's mother.

As It Is in Heaven (Så som i himmelen) is a Swedish film with the recently deceased Michael Nyqvist. He plays a successful conductor with a heart disease. He returns to his birth village, where he will lead the local choir. Nyqvist gives a charismatic performance in a film that celebrates the joy of making music together and being alive.

And then there's the most parodied scene in movie history, from Downfall:

 

Hans Krebs: The enemy made a breakthrough. They took Zossen and are advancing towards Stahnsdorf. They're at the northern city border, between Frohnau and Pankow. In the east, they reached Lichtenberg, Mahlsdorf and Karlshorst.

Adolf Hitler: If Steiner attacks, everything will be alright.

Hans Krebs: Mein Führer... Steiner...

Alfred Jodl: Steiner didn't have enough men. The attack didn't take place. [Hitler pauses to take off his glasses]

Adolf Hitler: The following stay here: Keitel, Jodl, Krebs and Burgdorf. (The four named generals, along with Goebbels and Bormann, remain in the room as the others leave. The door closes behind them) That was an order! Steiner's attack was an order! How dare you ignore my orders?! (Hitler's ranting is clearly audible outside the room) Is this what it came to? The military, everybody lied to me. Even the SS! The generals are no more than a bunch of disloyal cowards!

Burgdorf: Mein Führer, I can't permit you to insult the German soldiers-

Adolf Hitler: They are all cowards, traitors and failures!

Burgdorf: Mein Führer, This is outrageous!

Adolf Hitler: The generals are the scum of the German people! (flings a pencil onto the table) NO SENSE OF HONOUR! You call yourself general because you spent years at the academy, where you only learned how to use a knife and fork! For years, the military obstructed me. All you ever did is thwart me. What I should have done, is had all the high officers executed, like Stalin did! (pauses) I never went to the academy. But I conquered all of Europe on my own. Traitors! I've been betrayed and deceived from the start. Such enormous betrayal of the German people. But all these traitors will pay. They will pay with their own blood! They will drown in their blood!

Traudl Junge: (To Gerda, outside the room) Gerda, please calm yourself.

Adolf Hitler: All my orders have been ignored. How can I be a leader under these circumstances? It's over. The war is lost. But if you think this means I'll leave Berlin... you're wrong. I'd rather shoot a bullet through my head. [sighs] Do whatever you want.

Quotes from 2004

 

2046

 

Our cabin attendants are superbly designed... But there's only one problem : when they've served on so many long journeys, fatigue begins to set it. For example, they might want to laugh, but the smile would be slow to come. They might want to cry, but the tear wouldn't well up till the next day...

 

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

 

Drink up, young man. It'll make the whole seduction part less repugnant.

 

Tropical Malady

 

I give you my spirit, my flesh and my memories. Every drop of my blood sings our song. A song of happiness. There… Do you hear it?

 

Layer Cake

 

You're born, you take ****. You get out in the world, you take more ****. You climb a little higher, you take less ****. Till one day you're up in the rarefied atmosphere and you've forgotten what **** even looks like. Welcome to the layer cake, son.

 

The Incredibles

 

 

Edna: I started with the baby.

Helen: Started?

Edna: Shh! Darling! Shh! I cut it a little roomy for the free movement. The fabric is comfortable for sensitive skin [flamethrowers throw fire at the suit without leaving burn marks], and it can also withstand a temperature of over 1,000 degrees! Completely bulletproof. [machine guns train on the suit and empty rounds into it without causing any damage] And machine-washable, darling. That's a new feature.

Helen: What on earth do you think the baby will be doing?!

Edna: Well, I'm sure I don't know, darling. Luck favors the prepared. I didn't know the baby's powers, so I covered the basics.

Helen: Jack-Jack doesn't have any powers.

Edna: No? He'll look fabulous anyway.
