Hugo

Image source. Copyright Paramount Pictures, 2011.

No matter who you are, Hugo charms you. For those who shudder at the mere sound of “silent film,” Hugo provides a gentle, illuminating first glimpse into that era’s magical splendor. For the Chaplin-Keaton-Lloyd movie geek, Hugo unrolls like your favorite Thanksgiving meal – warm, familiar, and oh so sweet.

The Great Beauty

In terms of undeserved obscurity, you can’t do much worse than The Great Beauty, an Italian film only Oscar fanatics remember for winning the 2013 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. A shame, both for the movie and all the viewers who miss out.
