What’s YOUR favorite film of the year so far?
Mine? There are only a few candidates: Born into Brothels, Millions, 2046, Batman Begins, and Broken Flowers. Some fine films there, but I really don’t think ANY of them are “film of the year” material.
What performance has most impressed you this year? Daniel Day-Lewis was great in The Ballad of Jack and Rose, and Bill Murray was again very fine in Broken Flowers. Ziyi Zhang’s the only standout performance by an actress that I’ve seen this year (but I missed Joan Allen in The Upside of Anger, so I need to check that out.)
