As the year comes to an end, movie buffs every year are tempted to come out with their different best movie lists and we are no different. Every year we publish a couple of such posts written by individual authors which talk about some of the best films from India and globally, leading to several intense and passionate debates, discussions and arguments among fellow movie buffs.
But this year we decided to do something different. We asked some of our authors to individually list down English films they enjoyed watching this year.
While Boyhood and Gone Girl seem to be the universal favourites with Nightcrawler coming a close second, there are quite a few interesting recommendations by our authors that deserve to be seen by all and warrant a debate.
In 1995, two young people – a wannabe American male writer and a strong-headed French woman – met on a train from Budapest. He had just broken up with his girlfriend in Madrid and was going to Vienna to catch a plane to the USA, while she was going back to her university in Paris after meeting her ill grandmother.

She agreed and they disembarked. That night, the two strangers became confidants, sharing their lives and secrets, and evolved to be lovers who had in between them only one night. They lay under the moonlit night, kissed and made love, even had a poem written to them by a street-side poet, but all of this Before Sunrise. For when the Sun awoke on the horizon, it signalled with its arrival his departure – a going away that held no promise of return, a separation that could no longer dissemble the bleak chance of reunion. They were in their 20s – too early to be tied down by the memories of that one night. If only wisdom and youth had walked hand in hand, they would have known that they could go away from that night but the night would never go away from them.Continue reading “Before Richard Linklater”
