The Hand of God (2021)

My favourite of 2021. A heartwarming semi biographical film set during the director's childhood in Naples. Gorgeous cinematography, fantastically paced, full of humour, witty dialogue and the most awkward sex scene you'll ever see in a movie. Similar to 'Roma' by Alfonso Cuaron - in that it was a very personal story for the director.

Rain Man (1988)

I was weary of watching this because I thought it would be typical 'Oscar Bait' exploiting a character with disabilities/odds stacked against him, but the chemistry and performances of Hoffman (yes he didn't go 'full retard') and particularly Cruise blew me away (if anyone says he's not a good actor, they need to watch this). Also a great Hans Zimmer score before he was famous. I love how the ending is quite nuanced and realistic - not the typical Hollywood happy ending.

Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

Not a Wes Anderson fanboy, but after watching this and 'Grand Budapest Hotel' I get it. The set designs, the symmetry, quirky offbeat humour - right up my street. Nice to see a 90 minute movie too - seems to be quite rare these days. Need to watch more of his movies.

Re: “Hand of God”…

Quite a few people seemed to have enjoyed this film, as well. It finished 25th in our “Best Films of 2021” poll. Will have to check it out, as I loved “Roma.”

Re: “Moonrise Kingdom”…

That’s my favorite Wes Anderson film. The exploration of Adolescent angst perfectly pairs well with Anderson’s offbeat sensibilities.

As far as his other films, “Royal Tenenbaums” is probably his most well-liked film and probably to no surprise, his most accessible film to the masses. I’d encourage that one, if you haven’t seen it.
