New To Me Films I Really Loved

The Virgin Suicides (1999)
Starring: Kirsten Dunst, Kathleen Turner, James Woods

This has to be one of the most haunting films I've seen in a long time. The cinematography is beautiful but there is nothing at all beautiful about the actual story. It's disturbing and the overwhelming feeling I had whilst watching it was that of a nightmare. It's not a film I'll watch again in a hurry and I'm not sure I would even say that I "loved" it, I don't think that's quite the right word, but I am glad I saw it.

Niagara (1953)
Starring: Marilyn Monroe, Joseph Cotten

If I'm honest, I didn't expect to like this, which is why I put off watching it for so long after I'd watched all the other films in my Marilyn box sets, but I was actually quite pleasantly surprised by it. It's chock-full of suspense and towards the end my eyes were glued to the screen. Both Cotten and Monroe gave great performances and I definitely count this among my favourite of Monroe's films.

Le Fabuleux Destin D'Amélie Poulain (2001)
Starring: Audrey Tatou

I've wanted to see Amélie for years so I was very excited to finally get to watch it! It wasn't exactly what I had imagined it was going to be, but I wasn't disappointed. It's beautiful, charming, romantic, thought-provoking, and absolutely wonderful. Audrey Tatou is such a great actress, I'm looking forward to seeing more of her films. I highly recommend this film!
