Children of Men

Film, 2006

This movie comes very, very close to being an absolute classic, but is just a little too straightforward to provide a real hearty meal. Another great example of a filmmaker using documentary style filmmaking (in addition to a variety of other brilliant and inventive tricks) to create a believable, fictional reality- not to mention unique use of extended takes to unbelievably pulse pounding effect. I wish it had won a (more substantial) Oscar or something so people would remember it and it had gained the attention it would have needed to help inspire filmmakers to start making interesting movies again. 4
