The Secret in Their Eyes
The most accomplished piece of filmmaking I’ve ever seen – as perfect as a film can be.
Drama, suspense, emotion, comedy, thrills, love – The Secret in Their Eyes has it all.
The most epic of all crime thrillers with an incredible ensemble on top form, the best shootout ever committed to film, and a wholesome drama which fills its long runtime with ease.
The best action film ever made. It fulfils everything a film from the genre needs and has nothing it doesn’t need.
Personally, my favourite sci-fi film of all time. Like They Live it has B-Movie sensibilities, but with the likes of John Carpenter and Kurt Russell, it is elevated to the top of the A-list of sci-fi.
Not on the top of (or even anywhere near) most other people’s favourite films, but one I first saw at a very young age and have rated it highly ever since.
It’s not your regular western, especially as it’s quite a glossy and light-hearted depiction, but it’s true to the legend and is high in entertainment.
