Deadfall (dir. Stefan Ruzowitzky, 2012)
The movie is basically about two brothers on the run after a casino heist. It gets more interesting when you realize that the focus of the movie is not the theft or the suspense, but the characters’ extremely complicated family relationships. Watch the trailer.
Jiro Dreams of Sushi (dir. David Gelb, 2011)
Here’s the plan: order that awesome Japanese food delivery and watch this amazing documentary about sushi master, and Japan’s national treasure, Jiro Ono. Of course, after seeing his perfect creations you will get very angry with that sushi-crap you just ate and start quoting airline tickets to Tokyo. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Watch the trailer.
His Girl Friday (dir. Howard Hawks, 1940)
Someone recommended me this one for being an old movie (I like old movies) and because it has a journalistic theme (and I’m a journalist), but not even Cary Grant was able to save it. And I’m not talking about the stereotypical view of the journalist, I’m talking about the amount of times that ALL characters spoke on the phone. Sometimes on two phones at the same time! I know that the phone was a new and very popular thing in the 40s, but please, a little less guys… Watch the trailer.
