Penelope Cruz came to me last week...

..via Lovefilm. Volver is a Spanish movie by Almondovar - bit spiritual, bit suspense and bit of tongue in cheek aimed at local customs. 4 out 5 I'd say. And, no not just because of her.

She was squeezed in with Lives of Others and the Last King of Scotland. 4 out of 5 each too. Also watched No Country for Old Men, pretty good but maybe doesn't get 4 as I'd read the book first.

  1. I concur with your assessment of Volver – very quirky but good story.
    Last King of Scotland – the most shocking scene was when James McAvoy jumps in the loch –aaaarrrghhhh how cauld was that!
    4 out of 5 was a bit much for these films though – I think 8 out of 10 would be fairer.
    No Country for Us – sorry No Country for Old Men – bit grim, bit disturbing, bit confusing, bit good.
