Excellent Films to Make Your Weekend

Goodbye Baby, Goodbye 2007

Goodbye Baby Goodbye 2007

USA

The older Affleck shoots, the younger Affleck acts. “Goodbye Baby Goodbye” is Ben Affleck’s debut work as a director, and it’s pretty good. In general, Dennis Lehane’s novels are very cinematic and just beg to be adapted. Remember “Isle of the Damned” with Leonardo DiCaprio or “Mysterious River”. “Baby” is also a thriller in genre: a four-year-old girl goes missing in a troubled neighborhood near Boston, and when the police stop looking, two private investigators take over the case. You wonder whose side you’ll end up on after watching the film’s finale.

Nothing But the Truth, 2008

Nothing But the Truth, 2008

USA

In 2005, American journalist Judith Miller of The New York Times finds herself implicated in a scandal about leaks from the White House. She had to spend three months in jail for refusing to reveal her source. And a few years later, the film “Nothing But the Truth,” starring Kate Beckinsale, was based on these events. I wonder what will happen to freedom of speech in the U.S. under the new president?

Mother, 2009

Mother, 2009

South Korea

The power of a mother’s love—a plot that is inexhaustible. The main character’s son is accused of murdering a young girl, but the mother decides to investigate on her own because she thinks the police are short-sighted, the lawyers are lazy, and they never had any influential friends. This film is unlike the others in the selection, if only because it is Korean, and that already implies a special aesthetic and philosophical emphasis in the detective drama.
