The Three Best Films

...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.
