Papadopoulos & Sons (2012)
Father and Son
For those who want more from Stephen Dillane than seeing him in supporting TV roles as in John Adams, Hunted, Secret State and Game of Thrones, this is the film to pick. Papadopolous and Sons' story can be told in less than a minute. It may neither have the most original conflict nor a remarkable solution. (Of becoming poor it only shows the more beautiful aspects.) But there's something organic in the writing and the acting that makes you smile and not care about it. It's life! And it feels like life. P&S shows Mr Dillane's qualities more than anything else that I've recently seen. This may be due to his unpredictability in acting. I don't know any other actor who so much doesn't look like "acting". And on a leading role this talent even thrives. Thankfully P&S also provides us with Frank Dillane in his first bigger role after Harry Potter's Tom Riddle moment. A very promising debut from writer/director Marcus Markou.
Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
This is not a movie - this is an entire world
I've seen LoA about 10 times (during the last 15 years) and I still discover new aspects. How's that possible? In my eyes this is the best film ever made. I'm not interested much in the desert, I don't know much about WWI - but that doesn't matter at all. The story told is a story of passion. That makes it universal.
