Top of the month August 2009: Un prophète
Social climbing in prison.
Why should you go see Un prophète by Jacques Audiard, right now?
– Because of the acting: Tahar ‘Malik‘ Rahim, THE revelation, present in (almost) all the scenes and Niels ‘Luciani‘ Arestrup, scariest Corsican ever! :]
– Because it’s the best film of director Jacques Audiard who already has a perfect filmography!
– Because it’s an instant classic (in the prison genre).
Runners up :Inglourious Basterds by Quentin Tarantino and Les Derniers jours du monde by Jean-Marie Larrieu & Arnaud Larrieu.
(not to mention The Brothers Bloom by Rian Johnson & Staten Island by James De Monaco)
