Memento: the movie that made Chris Nolan famous. A truly original thriller as it is told backwards and through the eyes of a hero with no memory. In other hands it could have been a gimmick but with Nolan's deft handling it really works.

Fernando Meirelles' City of God. "This film opens a world that is largely unseen by the developed West, telling a nail-biting story that accurately reflects generations of children lost to a world we wouldn't wish on anyone. Queasiness at an opening scene where live chickens are beheaded for the cooking pot is soon put into insignificance as we realize the horrific cheapness of human life."
