I see that three Peter Greenaway films are mentioned -- Prospero's Books, The Draughtsman's Contract and The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover. I'm a big fan of his work, but, as far as I can see, my two favorite Greenaway films are not mentioned: A Zed and Two Noughts; and Drowning by Numbers.


Two films I like very much are also mentioned: Requiem for a Dream (ok, the biggest downer film of all time but still great). Ellen Burstyn was nominated for Best Actress and should have won.


Salo is a controversial film, often overlooked because of its sensational nature. But there is power there, and even beauty amid the horror.
