I've fallen out of the movie watching business over the last year of so, but I'm doing my best to catch up. And, in the past, I've fired off hot sports opinions about how movies aren't movies anymore. We've got cartoons and sequels -- TV on the big screen it seems --but that's it.
Anyway, I was roaming the Internets today and saw a few articles about what has been produced since 2000 that will stand the test of time. A classic, that is. Dramas, to me, are those movies where I didn't necessarily get blown away as I walked out of the theater but which caused me to think about it time and time again over the next few weeks.
Those I've seen suggested so far in the drama category that I agree with:
There Will Be Blood (2007)
No Country For Old Men (2007)
Sin City (2005)
Slumdog Millionarrie (2008)
Grizzly Man (2005) <-- Yeah, a documentary but I'm not leaving it out.
Lost in Translation (2003)
Black Swan (2010)
List of movies here for your suggestions. Man, this is hard.
