500 Days of Summer - 2009
Zooey Deschanel and Jospeh Gorden-Levitt are perfect and you cannot imagine anyone else playing their charactors.
Black Swan - 2010
It is very dark, has supernatural undertones in some ways, and can really creep you out by getting into the mind of the charactor of Nina played by Natalie Portman. The ballet scenes are filmed beautifully and realistically too, which is very important I think. I did ballet when I was a kid and had all my aunties ballet books/annuals from the 1950s and 1960s and so I think I was always going to like this movie anyway, but I really think Darren Aronofsky did a brilliant job here and really showed just how great a director he really is!
Natalie Portman apparently worked really hard for 3 years leading to this role and it really does show! she became a professional ballet dancer in order for the dancing to come across as real as possible and she really did deserve her Oscar win for best actress.
28 days later - 2002
It is not just a great zombie film but also a post-apocalyptic movie too! The London scenes are just amazing and I still really don't know how they did that, just made one of the worlds biggest cities seem totally empty!
It also made one of my favourite actors a star and that would be Cillian Murphy.
Atonement - 2007
Zodiac - 2007
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind - 2004
