Hmm…not sure about the “critically acclaimed” part, but here’s my list:
Quills: watched approximately 20 minutes. Sucked in by an all-star cast. The most vile movie ever made. Ever.
Mystic River: disappointing. Powerful performances, but absolutely despised the ending.
Michael: You don’t mess with St. Michael the Archangel…enough said.
Titus: I love Shakespeare. The anachronisms were annoying and the images incredibly disturbing. Give me Sir Laurence Olivier! (Anthony Hopkins is one of my favorite actors…just not in this film)
Interestingly enough, out of that list only one of the movies was a deliberate viewing “choice.” The others were invitations, suggestions and coercions. The one I wanted to see: Mystic River.
