I picked up Yonkers originally for David Strathairn but I got even more from it than I expected, Mercedes Ruehl is one of those actresses I think should be more highly regarded and seen.

Definitely, even with the Oscar win she seems a fairy overlooked performer.

Woke up about thirty minutes ago, had a drink and went outside to drop the can in the recycling bin, just in time to watch a car speeding down my street. In reverse. The sirens are making me think someone has watched Drive a few times too many.

95. Lily and Jim



Director: Don Hertzfeldt
Year: 1997

Hertzfeldt takes us along for the ride on the blind date from hell, not the kind where the other person is a nightmare, but where you actually like them, but you find yourself unable to express that, and your attempts to impress them go wrong and the situation continues to escalate. It's an extremely funny short, all about the dangers of letting your insecurities stop you from pursuing something you desire. Not as experimental as some of his later work, but still another example of Hertzfeldt's genius.

94. Being John Malkovich



Director: Spike Jonze
Year: 1999

John Cusack plays Craig Schwartz a puppeteer who is very talented, but making no money. Forced to take a job with a strange corporation, he works on the 7 1/2 floor of their building, where he discovers a strange tunnel hidden behind a filing cabinet. When he crawls down the tunnel, he discovers it leads straight into the brain of John Malkovich. Craig soon discovers he can use his talents to control Malkovich, and he decides to charge money for others to get fifteen minutes with Malkovich. At the same time, his marriage is strained and he finds himself attracted to charismatic co-worker Maxie (Catherine Keener) As bizarre as you'd expect from Kaufman and Jonze, the film is one of the most unique debuts in American cinema.

FINALLY. Another one I've seen.

Sometimes (all the time) I think (know) that rawlinson is deliberately obscure just to maintain his reputation.

Being John Malkovich is fantastic. Cameron Diaz is really good in it - I wonder if she'd ever take roles like that again.

I wish, truly honestly wish, that "regular" folk I know could see this. Could hear the way I am berated for my lack of knowledge and insufficient viewing of films.

Because, I'm going to be honest, "regular" folk generally tell me I watch too many films.

DAMNED IF I DO...

93. Orphans



Director: Peter Mullan
Year: 1997

Four Glasgow siblings prepare themselves for the funeral of their mother. After leaving her body in the church overnight, a drink to her memory in a nearby pub leads to the four getting separated and each of them undergoing their own long dark night. The elder, Thomas (Gary Lewis) acts the martyr, determined to show everyone how much more grief he has by staying the night in the church, Michael (Douglas Henshall) finds himself stabbed after a bar fight, but refusing to go to the doctor, hoping to hold out and blame the injury on work, John (Stephen McCole) tries to get revenge for his brother, while disabled Sheila (Rosemarie Stevenson) falls in with a group of young girls. All the while a storm is bearing down on Glasgow and the siblings. Rejecting sentimentality, Mullan creates a film that explores various forms of grief with a real sense of honesty. One of Orphans' greatest assets is how unpredictable it is, mixing hilarious comedy (Michael's run-in with surely the most short-tempered publican in Scotland) with genuinely upsetting scenes (John getting caught up in a friend's sickening attempt at revenge on a customer he dislikes) in a way that makes you uncertain of how any of the scenes are going to pay off. But if you're not on the floor in guilt-ridden laughter by the time Thomas attempts a visual depiction of how much grief he's carrying, you have no funny-bone.

I'm so not surprised it had a French release.

I am surprised it's so low, though

92. Gallivant



Director: Andrew Kotting
Year: 1997

Documentary following the director, his young daughter and his grandmother as they travel around the coastlines of Britain. Part documentary, part home movie. Kotting is travelling with two of the most important women in his life, and both are nearing death, grandmother Gladys because of her age, daughter Eden because of the disability that means a short life span. Stunningly beautiful and moving.

91. The Sandman



Director: Paul Berry
Year: 1991

Incredibly creepy animated short inspired by the classic Hoffmann story. As the night creeps along, a nervous child is sent to bed by his mother. As the boy shrinks from every shadow and tries to hide under the blankets from the night, a strange bird-like figure, The Sandman, begins to make its way to his room. But this isn't a gentle figure, come to help the boy sleep, he's come to take something. Amazing animation from Berry, who would later go on to work on Nightmare Before Christmas, makes the short linger long in the mind. Sadly Berry died at a young age, one can only imagine the kind of impact he'd have had on animated cinema if he'd lived longer.

Have you seen Swandown? The reviews haven't really been selling it to me.

I love that Sandman - everyone should watch it before the animation poll.
