*Be sure to check out the reviews on my blog found on the “Current Movies” page before you spend your money!

The following movies, to me, are just wonderfully told stories:
The Man on the Train
The Last Rites of Joe May
Get Low
10 Items or Less
Detachment
The Village Barber Shop
Barney’s Version
Win Win
Detachment
Puncture
Janie Jones
Adaptation
Being John Malkovich
The Music Never Stopped
6 Degree of Separation

The following movies have a romantic aspect to the story:
The Yellow Handkerchief
One Week
Take This Waltz
Newlyweds
She’s the One
Oh, Brother, Where Art Thou?
Happythankyoumoreplease
An Education
The Cooler
The Shipping News

The following movies are in a category unto themselves!
The Perfect Host is a psychological thriller
Drive is an artistically violent, but well-told story.  It is violent!
The Hustler is a classic!

REEL HONEST REVIEW VIEWER SUGGESTIONS!
