BEST OF MOVIES: PT Anderson, Sean Penn make the year past a classic one

Top 5 of 2007

“The Lives of Others”
This Oscar-winner packs the entertainment value of a summer blockbuster while maintaining the quality of an art-house gem.

“The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford”
An epic, thoughtful look at idolatry and its consequences. From a technical standpoint, it’s the best movie of 2007.

“Into the Wild”
The most inspiring film of the year shows a deeply personal journey that makes life worth living for one man.

“There Will Be Blood”
“There Will Be Blood” follows the making of a monster in a quest for wealth and power.
The film belongs to Daniel Day-Lewis, who cements his place as the greatest living actor today.

“The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters”
A documentary about two men competing to set the record in Donkey Kong. Definitely the most entertaining film of 2007.

5 To Look For in 2008

“Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”

“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”
Director David Fincher adapts an F. Scott Fitzgerald story about a man who begins to age backwards.
