These are the best films i saw in 2002, not in any particular order

1. The Lord of the Rings 2 (USA /New Zealand) : This second installment of the Ring trilogy is even better than the first one, maybe because you are already familiar with the characters and can really get involved with the story. The battle scene at Helm's Deep is just incredible. I haven't seen any thing like it since Spartacus, and that was in what ? the 60's . The music has a little touch of "Celtic" which i like alot.

2. Talk to Her (Spain): Director Pedro Almodovar's romantic drama about two men who be friended while caring for the women that they love, an aspiring dancer and a bullfighter (yes a female bullfighter), both are in comas. How do you tell someone that you love her when she can not hear you? The same way you tell her when she can hear you: talk to her. This film has a very touching ending which i shall not reveal here, go see it yourself . As with all his films, Pedro Almodovar's brilliant use of the 3 primary colors, red, blue and yellow, is a treat to the eyes. A little trivia for those Antonio Bandaras fans (yeah all you girls hihi), Pedro Almodovar is the director who discovered Antonio Bandaras in his native country Spain. If you watch his ealier movies, Matador, Tie Me Up Tie Me Down..., you can see a very young and of course handsome Antonio Bandaras .

3. Happy Times (China): It's a shame that this film did not get much showing in the US. Most people have never heard of it. I don't even see 1 critic mentioning it in their best films list. Anyway, you hear it mentioned here. It is by director Zhang Yimou who is, in my oppinion, the best damn film director in the world, hands down. In this film a young blind girl, abandoned by her father, abused by her step mother, meets a group of perfect strangers and experiences human affection for the first time in her life. Zhang Yimou has a way of yanking your heart by telling you a simple story with simple emotions. Zhang Yimou's latest film "Hero", his first swords epic/martial arts film, has recently broken all grossing records in China, only 1 month after its release. On top of that it features 2 of my most favorite HK actors: Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung . Not enough ? Ok, it also has Zhang Yizi of Couching Tiger Hidden Dragon and that guy... what's his name ? oh yeah Jet Li hihihi . This film will be released in the US somtimes this year. I can not waittttttttttttt

4. Monsoon Wedding (India): By the great Indian director Mira Nair. This is a better film than the other much more publicized wedding movie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding. There's a must see scene where a guy drops on his knees with a bed of heart shaped flowers in his hands to... declare love to his girl without saying a word. One of the most romantic scenes I've seen in cinema. This could only be created by a woman director.

5. The Quiet American (UK/USA): A british journalist (Michael Caine) gets tangled in the political tumoil of Vietnam in the 1950's while trying to hang on to his beautiful young Vietnamese lover. This film is directed by Australian director Phillip Noyce. Ironicly, 2 worst movies I saw in 2002 were also about Vietnam, Year of the Dragon and We Were Soldiers. Phillip Noyce also directed another fine film last year that is worth seeing, The Rabbit-Proof Fence.

6. Real Women Have Curves (USA): This is definitely a movie for women, made by a woman. But I still like it hehe. The movie is about a young girl of hispanic background trying to decide whether she should go off to college to further her education or stay behind and work in her sister's sweat shop to help her family. On top of that she is constantly berated by her mother for being overweight. She is not overweight really, well... a little, but cute. Ok, boring story right ? Wong!! This movie will surely make you laugh or at least put a smile on your face. Very funny and cute

7. Y Tu Mama Tambien (Mexico): Directed by Mexican-born Alfonso Cuarón. This was a surprise hit last year, breaking box-office records when released in Mexico. It also created much controvesy for its sexual content. The film is about 2 teen boys going on a road trip with an older woman to find a fictionous beach, and along the way they discovered their sexuality. What makes this movie great is its stark realism. The love scenes are so real, the bedding all tangled up; you can almost smell the lovers' sweat. Unlike holywood love scenes where the bed is always nicely made and the lighting perfect... that is not real. But not only the love scenes, everything about this film feels real. At one point in the film, where the 2 boys got drunk and started kissing, a guy sitting in front of me got up and walked out. Homophobia. The guy failed to differenciate homosexuality and... human sexuality. It wasn't a homosexual kiss. Argh his loss.

8. El Crimen del Padre Amaro (Mexixo): A young girl falls in love with a handsome priest and puts him in a predicament. Now he has to choose between his faith, his duty to the church and her. Not even a choice right ? I would choose the girl definitely hehe. But seriously, this movie is about the hypocrisy of the Catholic church, from the highest dominion down to the lowest. A great film from another great Mexicam director, Carlos Carrera. Oh, what did the young priest choose ? girl or god ? I am not going to tell you

9. The Pianist (France/Germany): A Polish Jew composer/pianist survived the Holocaust by the sheer will of wanting to live and the love for his music. Based on the true story of Wladyslaw Szpilman. Directed by Roman Polanski. I have seen the scene of Jews being loaded onto trains like cattle to go to their death many times in many different movies, and it still gets me everytime.

10. Spirited Away (Japan): This is the most elaborated animation I've ever seen. Some parents made a mistake of taking their kids to go see this movie and had to carry them out. Scary movie... not for kids, though the main character is a little girl. Pixar and Disney will never have anything on Japanimation

Ok, now what are your best ten movies of last year ha ?

Fall coi phim "Heaven & Earth" the other day. My eyes had water, maybe that was just the dust in the air
It was about a vietnamese woman who lives in time of VN war. It is about making the right choices, but aren't any right choices.
