...of the 21st Century
1. Wonder Boys - there is no contest, no disagreement, no room for dissent, hesitation or equivocation. Dylan won an Oscar for Things Have Changed. Case closed.
2. High Fidelity - Another first person narrative, this one from inside John Cusack's character, and his path from love to love to love to real love; a path we have all been on.
3. People Like Us - The protagonist dies before the movie begins. In the aftermath, a story of two unknown siblings leading parallel lives of desperation, until a playground brings them together.
