  • The Big Kahuna – Starring Kevin Spacey, Danny DeVito, Peter Facinelli, Directed by John Swanbeck

I quite liked this eclectic hour-and-a-half conversation between three salesmen that covers various topics, from American sub-standard sterile ritualistic sales conventions to life, death and their causes and effects. Good show. I admit, not too much happens, but still, I haven’t seen a film this frank and poignant in quite a while.

  • The Shawshank Redemption – Starring Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman, Directed by Frank Darabont

What a brilliant film. What a magnificent, mindblowing film. This is a great prison story told fantastically well, with some fabulous acting and scintillating dialogue. You’ve got to see it if you haven’t already. And it has been a while since its release.
