Even better than YouTube or Vimeo, if you have access to Netflix, The Island (Ostrov) is currently available there.  Beautiful cinematography and excellent acting;  In a remote and very poor monastery on the seacoast, a WWII coward and traitor redeems himself by living the life of a holy fool who resists the adulation of the crowds and torments the monks with his antics.  Russian language with subtitles.

+1

I liked this movie very much.

And oc.net continues to wallow in garbage. Achronos really elevated this thread to something to actually check.

I'll put my movie recommendations against Achronos's any day. But I think we did share some in common.

I watched Hecules and Noah.  The latter sucked.

The Island (Ostrov) is currently available there.

We've got it on DVD (in Europe). Words fail to describe this film (i.e. truly great).

On the authority of our local archpriest, I can also recommend this TV movie, if you can find it in a language you can understand:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0273295/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

I would call it a reworking of Camus' The Fall.

The Grand Budapest Hotel, was that mentioned? An enjoyable flick.
Interesting author; a German who wrote of a possibly civilized Europe in the 20th Century, around Adolph's time and contrary to that whole schmere

The Act of Killing

Possibly the most important film I've seen in a year or two.

I posted a recommendation for this one a while back, maybe in the Documentaries thread.

Incredible film. Amazing that this was even allowed to be made. Easily the most disturbing and emotionally draining movie or doc that I've ever seen. But as you rightly said, extremely important.

War Horse is premiering tonight on TV. My son has been begging to see it from the first glimpse of the trailer he got. It's past his bedtime, so he won't be watching tonight, but it's being recorded and we'll all sit through it probably tomorrow.

The first half hour is boring but then it picks up, so don't be instantly discouraged when you watch it.

I've been trying to make it through the 4 hour version of Ludwig. Difficult, but I must finish it for honour's sake.

As the Palaces Burn

Documentary about the manslaughter trial of metal vocalist Randy Blythe. I liked it, but I wish it would have been longer.
