STORIES WE TELL

Sarah Polley’s riveting family saga plugs into that recent subgenre of the mystery documentary (The Imposter, Catfish, Searching For Sugarman). The narrative is one of family secrets, beginning with her late mother. Polley’s various relations provide the talking heads and they’re intercut with 8mm home movies, some of which, disconcertingly, turn out to be reconstructions. Prepare to be wrongfooted.

1 A Pervert's Guide to Ideology
I'm an Afrikaans-speaking South African and what I find mind-boggling is how close the Slovenian accent is to an Afrikaans one! More

3 A HIJACKING
I did actually watch that one - but I'm Danish, so that's not really insanely surprising.. It was good, but not what I expected it to be like when I saw the trailer and read about it beforehand... More

Also saw Borderlands at Mayhem and highly recommend it. One of the best British horrors I've seen in a long time More

6 Act of Killing review?
Being the world leading film magazine your full Act of Killing review seems to be oddly absent from your site. More

If Empire did these features on just one or two pages, I'd bother reading it all. Usually though, I get through 4 or 5 clicks and then can't be arsed...... More

8 Europa Report??
I would definitely add that to this list... seeing as it didn't really have a cinema release and sort of snook out under the radar! One of the best films I saw this year, utterly gripping from start to finish, and I still think about it now, months later! More

9 The Borderlands
Glad to see the Borderlands in your list. Saw this at "Mayhem" in Nottingham and had the pleasure of speaking to Robin Hill, who is a top top bloke. This is a brilliant film. More

11 RE: WHITE TIGER - THE DUBBING...
Some nice choices in there. If you have the channel, Sky Atlantic has been showing The Act of Killing. It and Gatekeepers are currently in my top 10 for the year. From the list, one I missed and I'll certainly be looking out for is THe Borderlands. THat said, if you managed to miss Arbitrage that makes you a luckier person than me More
