Life Is Beautiful – An incredible film about perspective, reality, and imagination. The message: life is beautiful, but only if you choose it to be. I cried like a little bitch.
Y Tu Mama Tambien – A movie about two horny teenage boys. The “Oh shit!” ending is a natural result of what happens when you let sexual desire dominate.
City of God – Brazilian movie about life in the favela, order in anarchy. Death, drugs, and sex surround great characters and storytelling.
None of these movies are in English. Lately I’m finding that only foreign films are capable of telling me a story with characters I care about.
