Department of Rediscoveries: Birth
No one paid much attention to this gorgeous, strange film by Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast and some amazing British TV commercials) when it came out a few years ago.
I saw it again at a New York Film Festival sidebar and was blown away by its eerie beauty. I wish you guys could see it on the big screen, because it is ravishing. The music by Alexandre Desplat is unbelievable (I liked it so much I bought it on iTunes), the cinematography by Harris Savides incredible and Nicole Kidman is excellent as a woman who is visited by a 10 year old kid who claims to be her dead husband.
Don't ask. Just get the film and enjoy it. It's a fantastic film.
