My advice would be to try and find a couple of his "big" films (Breathless, Contempt, Band of Outsiders, Weekend), and if you like them try and find his later stuff (if you need any links PM me).

He really is the most interesting and thought-provoking filmmaker I've ever encountered.

^ Flashpoint Paradox was one of my fav DC animated movies they've put out so far. The Flash was pretty badass, hope they make more movies with him as the lead

Place Beyond the Pines

The plot was really well done because it helped to build the characters so well. A lot of times these kind of movies fall flat because the characters are really given enough room to breath within the plot but this one was much different. A lot of quiet moments with close-up shots that gave the movie a moral weight that took the movie from decent to very good. Avery (Bradley Cooper) was the character that made the movie for me. At its core the movie was about the relationship between fathers and sons. Between of that combined with the excellent score/soundtrack and direction, this move had a pretty large impact on me as the credits rolled.

I'd give it a really solid 8/10.

PBTP is definitely a flick worth watching.

I watched "Nebraska" the other night

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1821549/

Sort of depressing, but very very good. Emotionally gripping, with great acting and an interesting story. Somewhat off-kilter, and almost reminded me of a Cohen brothers movie.

Some reviewers say it's boring but I could not disagree more, and I think it deserves higher than the 7.9 it's currently rated at.

I actually enjoyed it more than Place Beyond the Pines, which while I liked, I thought the second half was somewhat "slow".

Speaking of the Cohen bro's, I also recently watched "Inside Llewyn Davis"

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2042568/

Great flick, deserving of an 8/10 IMO. Some fantastic music in the soundtrack too which somewhat makes the movie.

I watched Her. I can't believe this movie ever got the go ahead and managed to get such a strong cast. That's a credit to Spike Jonze and his script and skill in creating the overall tone. I feel like the central concept of this movie is so abstract for today's general audience and a lot of people might not like the movie due to it. Because if you don't buy into the main idea, this movie will never work. I didn't at first. It was a great looking movie but like the moment when Theodore starts talking to Samantha, I was immediately skeptical. Then it just starts working and you accept it because the world created in this movie accepts it and so much of the Theodore/Samantha relationship rings of truth. The look of it all is fantastic as well. This near-future with a sterile and ordered look to it all. But also being completely plausible. My mind is swimming with thoughts of AI sentience, the singularity, human mortality, modern-day communication, and so many other things that Her evokes. This is what great science fiction should do.

I've made my way through most of the big 2013 movies and what a great year it was. I can't remember the last year where I found 3 movies to be totally brilliant (Gravity, Before Midnight, and Her). Hoping to get through Rush, Inside Llewyn Davis, Enough Said and The Place Beyond the Pines this week.

Gravity was incredibly disappointing for me.

It was just like Avatar. Great advancements in the technology, but I didn't take anything away from it.

Glad you liked Her though
