The Two Towers
The Dark knight

The Dark knight

Christopher Nolan is a very versatile director. He is both a skilled action director and an able character developer. Nolan's movies also have a deep moral undertone and plenty of substance. The Dark Knight is the best Batman movie ever made.

The entire cast (Christian Bale, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman) makes a quality work. However, Heath Ledger's performance as Joker is completely on its own level. It's transcendent. It cannot be explained but must be seen and experienced.

It tells about an itinerant circus. Anthony Quinn plays Zampano, the strongman of circus, Giulietta Masina plays Gelsomina, Zampano's simple and submissive concubine, and Richard Basehart plays the clown Matteo. La Strada tells about the importance of love and empathy. The movie is very touching. Of all Fellini's movies it is the simplest, easiest to understand, and the best.

The movie deals with such themes as one´s own identity, loneliness, aging, and the possibility of a new love. Its atmosphere is reflective. Bill Murray makes a memorable role as Bob Harris. Lost in Translation speaks to its viewers in a very touching and subtle way.

Withness

Witness

Witness is an Australian movie director´s Peter Weir's best movie. Harrison Ford is a Philadelphia police detective John Book and Kelly McGillis is Rachel, a young widow who belongs to an Amish-sect.

The Witness describes the romance, which develops between John Book and Rachel. It is also a description of the difference between the Amish-sect and the outside world. The Amish-sect is naive, honest and non-violent, the outside world is violent and immoral. Witness is a great movie. Its direction, cinematography and quality of actor´s work are all at a very high level.

The Passion of the Christ

The Passion of the Christ

The movie dialogue is spoken in Aramaic, Latin and Hebrew. In the garden of Gethsemane Judas Iscariot (Luca Lionello) betrays Jesus (James Caviezel). The Judean governor Pontius Pilate (Hristo Naumov Shopov) condemns Jesus to death by crucifixion. Jesus is brutally beaten and forced to carry his own cross to Golgotha, where he is crucified. The Passion of the Christ is an extremely brutal and violent movie. It is also extremely impressive, fascinating, dreamlike, and has an ability to silence its viewers. The cinematography and its colors were modelled after the paintings of an Italian painter Caravaggio. The Passion of the Christ is Mel Gibson's personal confession of faith- an impressive confession.

The Silence of the Lambs

The Silence of the Lambs

Jack Crawford (Scott Glenn) gives Sterling the task to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins). Hannibal Lecter is a captured serial killer who has a psychiatrist's education. Jack Crawford believes that Hannibal Lecter is able to help to catch Buffalo Bill. Silence of the Lambs is an extremely well-made movie. Anthony Hopkins "is" Hannibal Lecter. Jodie Foster is also convincing. The downside of the Silence of the lambs is its own genre. Several of its scenes are deeply shocking.

Lord of the Rings

Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring

Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring (directed by Peter Jackson) is the first and the best part of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. A lot of money and talent were spent in making this movie.

And not in vain because the result is worth the investment. The choice of actors for different roles was very successful: Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn, Ian McKellen as Gandalf, Christopher Lee as Saruman, Ian Holm as Bilbo, etc. The whole production is characterized by quality and craftsmanship.
