7º – Crazy, Stupid, Love (Glenn Ficarra, 2011)Having to overcome a recent divorce, a middle-aged man decides to relearn how to deal with the single routine, coming to look for help in a young man to attract women. ‘Love in All Evidence’ is inserted in a different meander from the comedies we are used to, with a construction of history that uses worked scenes of comic situations.
6º – The Hand That Rocks the Cradle (Curtis Hanson, 1992)In the plot, a couple decides to hire a nanny to share the domestic work, in view of the arrival of a new member in the family. However, what this couple did not expect was that the person hired was actually a woman whom they had indirectly injured in the past, revealing themselves with sinister purposes. There is no suspense film that better represents the characteristic elements of the genre in the 1990s than ‘The Hand That Swings the Cradle’. A film that has its imperfections, but which are surpassed by the attractive plot. Not to mention that the title given to the film is fantastic and represents well what the story proposes to tell.
5º – The Big Lebowski (Joel and Ethan Coen, 1998)After having his house invaded by two criminals by mistake, a middle-aged man completely maladjusted decides to go after the person that those individuals sought for him to compensate him for the damage, entering into an unprecedented confusion. Belonging to the cinema of the Coen brothers, ‘The Great Lebowski’ works with a plot permeated by distinct nuances, changing to each outdated scene, delivering, as a final result, a great film. In charge of the central character, Jeff Bridges manages to act in his career, succeeding in being hilarious in each plan in which he is exposed.
4º – Maps to the Stars (David Cronenberg, 2014)Providing an almost “voyeur” look from the viewer to the compendium that comprises a small scope of the cinematographic industry, David Cronenberg delivers an average work, which fails in its lack of ambition. The film will work with the superficiality of human contact in some of its branches, will dispense with the traditional pleasant atmosphere that the director always allows in his filmography and will show a cast permeated with heavy names.
