7º – August: Osage County (John Wells, 2013)The paths of several characters of a family end up returning to the house where they grew up, exposing the various problems of each person inserted there and their anguish with the course of their lives. The film, sometimes, is very attached to exaggerated scenes, with performances too intense for what the script proposes, but, in general, the work is successful in showing how a dysfunctional family can compromise the psychological structure of several individuals inserted in that reality.
6º – Deception (Marcel Langenegger, 2008)Trying to keep the figure of loneliness out of his life, a man decides to give in to the requests of a work friend and enters a reality of a secret club to attract women. Good suspense, this film does not present innovative fragments of scenes or history, but manages to remain extremely interesting from beginning to end. A movie that certainly deserves to be watched by fans of suspense.
5º – Trainspotting (Danny Boyle, 1996)We will enter a scenario of exaggerations and drugs of some young people, glimpsing the ways these individuals consummate their relationship with the world. ‘Trainspotting’, supported by a frenetic rhythm, can make explicit to the viewer the exaggerations of an erratic youth, without, however, being noticed as a heavy work.
4º – Moulin Rouge! (Baz Luhrmann, 2001)The greatest musical of the 21st century, this film exposes in its history the trajectory of an innocent young man who falls in love with a star of a great nightclub. Everything in the film ends up working, with constructions of plans, whether musical or not, dynamic and always pleasant. Its director, the good Baz Luhrmann, manages to bring scenes that escape the traditional conceptions of the musical genre. Nicole Kidman, together with Ewan McGregor, manages to attribute a unique quality to the general compendium of the work, obtaining one of the great performances of his career.
