Somebody here's a closet pederast... Is it possible to like Mysterious Skin that much?

Yes...yes it does.

You're still talking about Nazis...someone's a big fan of Mein Kampf as well as a closet pederast.

Mysterious Skin was a good film but I wasnt crazy about it.Definetly one of Greg Araki's best.In my opinion Todd Solondz has covered similiar ground and done it much better.

As far as great disturbing,brutaly honest cinema goes I think Me and You and Everyone We Know is the film to watch.I'll be keeping my eye on Miranda July's future films.

Gael Garcia Bernal's performance in Bad Education blows away Joseph Gordon Levitt.Check it out if you dont mind watching films with heavy g a y themes.

Mysterious Skin is was my fave fim of the past year, hence all the *ahem* love for it.

Bad Education was released in 2004, hence Bernal didn't make this list.

Yeah I'm that way to but when it comes to foreign films I usually have to watch them a year later because they dont play at my theatre.Like Oldboy last year.

I notice you have some 2004's on you list like Kung Fu Hustle.If a film totally blows me away and it came out the year before it'll make my list.Bad Education did that for me.

I'm not knocking your list by the way everyone's entitled to their opinion.

I agree with Keep Cool's list almost down to the letter, except that Best Supporting Actor award really must go to those crazy stuntmen in Ong Bak...Not since Seagal's Out of Reach have I made the "Aiouaaaghoow" sound so many times.

I gave it a 4.5 out of 5 after I saw it in the theater, dropped that to a solid 4 after watching it again on DVD.

WTF is wrong with my Cinema viewings this year? Maybe it's 'cos of my lack of DVD watchings or that some of my smaller choices have been harder to find, but man I just reak of so OBVIOUS choices. Very ashamed!!!

Wow. It's thrown into sharp relief what a pathetically small amount of movies I've seen this year. I seriously think I could count the number on my hands. Sigh*. Well, I at least wanna give an honorable mention to Brendan Gleeson, who I thought was pretty terrific in Goblet of Fire. Now where's burl...?

Kirks, thanks for the reminder on Ralph in The Constant Gardener.

Fuck was he brilliant in that...kinda appropriate that I did overlook him, since so much of that role involves just that very thing.

I'm hopin' he gets the Oscar.
