Half Nelson






Great list, Ryan. I would add "The Lives of Others" and "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada."
Nice list! Seen most of list, just saw Memento once again - super. Haven't seen The Fog of War yet but it sure is in my todo list.
I never heard of most of the movies on the list except for Adaptation, but I didn't see it. For a documentary I thought "Grizzly Man" was interesting, and for a good drama movie I liked "Whale Rider". For a true story I liked "Into The Wilderness......there are so many to choose from.
