Catch Me If You Can (2002)

A true story about Frank Abagnale Jr. who, before his 19th birthday, successfully conned millions of dollars worth of checks as a Pan Am pilot, doctor, and legal prosecutor.

Nearly perfect entertainment, an interesting story told with impeccable pace, slight humour and two good central performances.

The Great Raid (2005)

Taking place towards the end of WWII, 500 American Soldiers have been entrapped in a camp for 3 years and begin to give up hope they will ever be rescued, while a group of Rangers goes on a dangerous mission to try and save them.

Carefully crafted war drama, unfortunately using some of the expectable cliches.

William S. Burroughs: My Education. A book of Dreams

There are some aliens camped near us in blue denim suits - Martians, I think - and I visit them. They seem friendly enough and one man takes off his clothes and there is a column of bone running down from his neck and nothing else except his hipbones. He says, "Well, I really got a turkey of a body..."
  He shit sure does.
  I feel heat in my foot and look down and there is a lighted cigarette shoved under the sole of my shoe near the toe. Someone has given me a hot foot. When I extract the cigarette, I break it open and it is like a clamshell with tentacles inside. Not however moving or alive.

Quotes from Samuel Beckett: Molloy

Yes, there is no denying it, any longer, it is not you who are dead, but all the others.

Human Nature (2001)

A woman is in love with a man in love with another woman, and all three have designs on a young man raised as an ape.

Deliberately silly and over-the-top farce which only occasionally succeeds to amuse.

Stocking up on my Swans collection.

28 Weeks Later (2007)

Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again, but not everything goes to plan.

OK sequel of a great zombie movie with some menacing details.
