Critical Films for a series of cozy Sunday evenings

Friday, February 9th, 2007

I have been toying with the idea of showing ciritical(?) films at my house for a while now. It would be an open evening with friends, neighbours, work-mates, etc. Maybe in the form of a bring-a-dish, though really I wouldn’t mind cooking myself!
Sunday evenings make most sense: few people will want to go out, most just want to chill out.

Films I am thinking of showing:

  • The Edukators (2005)
  • Farenheit 9/11 (2004)
  • Bamako (2005)
  • Darwin’s Nightmare (2004)
  • Good Bye, Lenin! (2004)
  • The Corporation (2004)
  • ?Grizzlyman (200x)

plus these, which I haven’t seen (at all or only partially):

  • AboliƧao (1988)
  • An Inconvenient Truth (2005)
  • Amandla!: A Revolution in Four-Part Harmony (2002)
  • Frontline: Ghosts of Rwanda (2004)
  • Thank you for Smoking (200x)
  • Paradise Now (2005)
  • When the Mountains Tremble (1983)
  • Why We Fight (2006)
  • The Take (2004)
  • Plan Colombia: Cashing in on the Drug War Failure (2003)
  • Tsotsi (2005)

there are plenty more and I’ll amend the list as I remember their names or come across new ones…

I’d particularly like to include more world cinema but need to inform myself a bit first.
