The title doesn’t mean the movies were released in 2009.
It’s just a list of the best DVDs that fed the delicate mouth of my DVD player in 2009.
And, oh, for this list I will not bother you with niche-y stuff like docs about Andrei Tarkovsky, or Romanian art cinema of the 1980’s…
THIS IS HOLLYWOOD STUFF.
- In Bruges (2008)
- Doubt (2008)
- I’ve Loved You So Long (Il y a longtemps que je t’aime) (2008)
- Revolutionary Road (2008)
- Death at a Funeral (2007) – Brit humor at its best
- The Savages (2007)
- How Much Do You Love Me? (Combien tu m’aimes?) (2005) – Monica Bellucci……..
- Things We Lost in the Fire (2007)
- Lust, Caution (Se, jie) (2007)
- Mechanic, The (1972) – best Charles Bronson movie for me. Read the short-story, too.
- Breaker! Breaker! (1977) – we are allowed one Chuck Norris movie / per year, so this was my choice -)
- The Bank Job (2008)
- Tex Avery’s Droopy: The Complete Theatrical Collection (1954) – my sense of humor is derived from here
