Sunset Boulevard - English - 1950


Sunset boulevard is a tragic tale of a Cinema Super star who has faded into oblivion.

IMDB rates it 8.7. Must have been very successful when it got released.


Postmen in the Mountains - China - 1999


Postmen in the mountains is a good addition to the films documenting the father son relationship.

This film is set in Interior china and is a good watch for its locales.

Though its not sentimental and wont make you cry, it has its fine moments.

The Goonies - English - 1985


If you want to go back to your pre-teen days and wish to have times like what you had after reading Famous five, Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew,

The goonies is a nice bet.

The Goonies is a adventure film featuring kids about finding a lost treasure of a pirate hidden in a cliff.

This film was produced by Steven Spielberg, and I believe you cant go wrong with Spielberg.

Zorba The Greek - English - 1964


This movie was suggested by my friend Subbaraman here.

Zorba the greek is the story of a care-free and happy-go-lucky individual played by Anthony quinn.

This movie is set in the island of crete and some scenes were similar to the ones in the recent Italian film, Malena, which was also
set in Create.

Hrishikesh Mukherjees Anand starring Rajesh Khanna also had a overtly optimistic individual as the main character.

Though I liked Anthony quinns acting I did not like the ending and was not convinced of it.
