Year: 2008 (15 Films)
To me, this film is a stand-out. It’s definitely one of the most original movies of the last decade. Although director Ramin Bahrani has done a few other feature films, this is the only one that I’ve seen… but I loved it. Loved it, loved it, loved it. (Is it okay if I say than a million more times?) Bahrani managed to balance enigmatic elements with absolutely captivating ones to create a strangely effective form of suspense. The characters in this film feel so real (and well acted) - every detail is just… genuinely natural. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. Furthermore, the power of silence is used to perfection, and the visual elements are stunning. I would go as far as to say that, from a visual standpoint, Goodbye Solo contains one of the most beautiful endings in the history of cinema. No dialogue necessary. Only gorgeously emotional, wonderfully ambiguous imagery. A lot of heart and soul went into the production of this piece of art. Whether you’re a film fanatic or not, you really should see this masterpiece.

Watching the static,
Hoping it somehow makes sense
But it never does.
