"NEW 2012 EDITION!"
Good news everyone, the newest edition of 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die, was finally released on the October 1st. This book includes 14 new titles from last year. And the following films are:
2) Le Havre
4) The Tree of Life
5) The Kid with a Bike
6) The Girl with the Dragoon Tattoo
7) Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy
9) War Horse
10) A Separation
12) The Descendants
14) The Artist
Out of all 14 films, 8 of them are american, 2 British, 2 French, 1 Belgian and 1 Iranian.
There's 5 movies that were nominated for Best Picture: The Tree of Life, War Horse, The Descendants, Hugo, The Artist.
10 of these films where nominated for ad least one Academy Award. 5 of these actually won.
Why is the extremely cliche War Horse on this list?
Where is Lars von Trier's Melancholia? Did his nazi statement offended the editor of this book too?
Why isn't The Help, 50/50 or Midnight in Paris on this list? Why did the editor choose War Horse over these?
Any way these are just my opinions.
Please leave a comment and tell me your thoughts about this list.
