Withnail & I (1987)
my absolute and utter favourite film
What a film! The one-liners, the names (Monty, Withnail...where else would you find such spectacular names?!) True it does not have much of a plot but what it lacks in plot it makes up for in sheer brilliance of dialogue and wit. I had never heard of this film and then suddenly out of the blue : the people i babysat for told me about it, my friend Sarah began raving about it and then the ultimate shove towards watching it, my sister brought the video home! Now if that is not fate i don't know what is. I will be forever grateful. Richard E. Grant is the epitome of the brilliant character actor(i would put his performance on a level such as Daniel Day Lewis, a fete not known by any other actor in my book)finding an exquisite foil in McGann. Watch this film and if you do not find it in the least bit interesting then so be it you are condemned to be boring forever. But if you do not even crack a smile at the infamous line GET IN THE BACK OF THE VAN!! then i would worry for your future in the art of film watching.
In the Name of the Father (1993)
Best Film ever made
This film has is the most inspiring, riveting and thought provoking film i have ever seen. At first viewing i didn't realise it was a true story until i read the ending and to find out that all this was true was just so astonishing. My favourite quote comes from Emma Thompson who plays Gareth in the court scene at the end where she says "their only mistake was that they were bloody well Irish." Did you notice that the people who said it was political nonsense and biased were all English? Yes it told the Irish account of what happened but the fact still remains that the English used the four Irish innocent people as scapegoats so as that they wouldn't have to find the real people who did it and even when they did find those responsible they didn't do anything about it. I think you just don't like being shed in a bad light. All in all it remains one of the best films i have ever seen and am likely to see.
