Branching off the 'Five Favorite Bond Films' topic, this one is simple: list your favorite film, along with anything else you care to share about it.
My favorite film: 'Munich', 2005, directed by Steven Spielberg. Starring Eric Bana, Daniel Craig, Ciaran Hinds, Mathieu Kassovitz, Geoffrey Rush, Michael Lonsdale, and Mathieu Amalric. It was nominated for five Oscars.
Plot: Based on the true story of the Black September Aftermath at the 1972 Munich Olympics, the movie follows the five men responsible for killing those responsible for that fateful day in Munich, Germany.
I can't even begin to describe why I love this film, or I will never get it posted. It will be an entire novel by the time I'm through with it. Simply: it's rich. It's deep. It gives one of the best narratives I have ever seen, you get very involved with the characters, their pasts, you learn about them and soon love them. It's based on a true story, and after doing massive upon massive amounts of research for a paper on the 1972 Munich Incident in college, I slowly learned that this movie does heavily follow the real life events to a certain, film-capable degree. They all give amazing performances, the action is very realistic and gritty, and it's a heavy recommendation to anyone who enjoys a good, historic drama.
Also, something you guys might appreciate that I did, as well. Maybe you noticed from the cast list, but this film has a pre-Bond Craig (who accepted the role just weeks after wrapping up this film), a pre-Bond Amalric (Dominic Greene in QoS), and a post-Bond Lonsdale (Drax in Moonraker, who ironically plays Amalric's father).
