O, Brother, where art Thou?
(2000 Joel Coen)

Joel and Ethan Coen transport Homer's ODYSSEY to the depression-era South in the silly, fun comedy O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU?. George Clooney, John Turturro, and Tim Blake Nelson star as three escaped fugitives on the run in Mississippi. Their adventures through the barren landscape includes run-ins with a soothsayer, a trio of Sirens, a Bible-salesman Cyclops, as well as other archetypes from Southern folklore and pop-culture including a young blues musician, the Klan, and bank robber Baby Face Nelson. Soon they are caught up in a vicious gubernatorial campaign that would make Huey Long proud.

Om Stig Petrés Hemlighet
(2004 Harald Hamrell)

Om man är VD och bor på en liten ort är det inte självklart att man gillar tanken på att gå i gruppterapi. Stig Petré gillar det definitivt inte men tvingas dit av sin kloka läkare - men det måste hållas hemligt!

Stig Ehrling J:son Petré (Michael Nyqvist) är en välkänd profil på den lilla orten. Han driver en fabrik och är en av de ledande i den lokala fotbollsklubben. Men allt är inte frid och fröjd bakom den framgångsrika fasaden. Fabriken går så dåligt att banken hotar att sätta den i konkurs. Stigs mage krånglar och husläkaren påstår att det handlar om panikångestattacker. Läkaren tvingar honom till och med att gå i terapi! Där möter Stig några andra färgstarka figurer: Inger (Gunilla Röör) som allmänt kallas för "Gorillan-i-kassan", Den misslyckade trubaduren Tore (Göran Thorell), Malena (Camilla Larsson) narcisstisk tvåbarnsmor som gärna brister ut i sång. Och så terapeuten Björn (Jonas Karlsson) som är den i gruppen som kanske har de allvarligaste problemen av dem alla... Herrejössesjävlar, Stig går i gruppterapi - han som inte har några problem. Tänk om någon får reda på det! Terapin måste till varje pris hållas hemlig...

Once upon a Time in America
(1984 Sergio Leone)

Sergio Leone's final film is also a cinematic masterpiece. Spanning four decades, the film tells the story of David "Noodles" Aaronson (Robert De Niro) and his Jewish pals, chronicling their childhoods on New York's Lower East Side in the 1920s, through their gangster careers in the 1930s, and culminating in Noodles' 1968 return to New York from self-imposed exile, at which time he learns the truth about the fate of his friends and again confronts the nightmare of his past.

The acting, the re-creation of the time period, the cinematography, and the music are all superb. However, even more important is Leone's ability to make the film work on so many different levels: it's both a criticism of gangster-film mythology and a continuation of the director's exploration of the issues of time and history. Strange as it may seem, the violence and gore in the first half of the film turn into a sad elegy about wasted lives and lost love.

One Take Only
(2001 Oxide Pang)

Bangkok, 2001. In this sprawling metropolis people go about their busy lives in anonymity. Here, it's not unusual for people to live in the same building and never exchange a word, or to ride the same bus but occupy different worlds. When Som and Bank meet for the first time at Center Point, they are strangers: Bank doesn't know that Som is a hooker, and Som doesn't know Bank is a drug dealer. Here, they briefly share their dreams while sunbathing on a rooftop. Soon they become partners, and the drug deals they make bring them a kind of wealth that they have never known. Now Som can afford expensive mobile phones and sunglasses, while Bank can be carefree in his gambling. With a taste for the highlife, they plan a deal that will make them rich beyond their wildest imagination, but they soon find that the price they must pay is far too great.
