    Notorious (1946)

    Starring Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant

    Directed by Alfred Hitchcock

    Not for the first time, but each time I watch this movie I'm so pleased with the deep sense of love and humanity, which can be rarely found in modern movies.

    This is one of my all time favourite films. Such a brilliantly structured 'warning' to all of about the importance of relationships and truly experiencing life; the necessity of being vulnerable. Highly recommended!

    King's Speech. I thought it was fantastic; a thoughtful plot about an uncommon friendship between the Duke of York and a commoner in Brittian (err, it was based on a true story, so the plot was never really "written" in the first place). To top it off, the main theme music was the Mozart Clarinet Concerto, although it didn't use much of the clarinet solo itself.

    This film features a great score by the great composer Fumio Hayasaka, one of my favorite composers.

    Everything in Rashômon is great, not only music (which is also very well matched to the movie) but the story, casts (who can forget Toshirô Mifune as Tajômaru ?) , Locations , Light. Just notice to the court scene, the way one explaining the affair while other witnesses sitting in the background which reminds us to the style of "Noh" theatre.
