Well, I didn't expect that! I have a new #1 of 2007 - the film that movies like Atonement (omg just over 48 hours!!!), No Country for Old Men, I'm Not There and all the others will have to aspire to be better than if they are to be my #1 of 2007.
I'm not going to say what the movie was just yet because I think it's fun to have a little mystery, especially when the film in question is not on any mainstream radar. It's not an Australian film though and it's definitely not going to get any Oscar nominations, despite the fact that it deserves them for - at least - picture, director, screenplay and costume design. It's incredibly powerful and does one of the finest jobs of authentically defining an era I can remember from a recent film.
Also, in a weird bout of parellelism, the film has the best title of 2007, too.
EEEEEE! So happy right now! And it's good because the two other movies from 2007 that were in the leading position before - that'd be Noise and Ratatouille - just didn't feel right, ya know? This movie does.
