"The Silence Of The Lambs" is one of my favorite films of all time. Exceptionally smart actors playing exceptionally smart characters...plus a psychotic pre-operative transsexual making a skin suit out of fat girls. Honestly, what's not to like?!?
THE BOOK THIEF (2013): While subjected to the horrors of World War II Germany, young Liesel finds solace by stealing books and sharing them with others. In the basement of her home, a Jewish refugee is being sheltered by her adoptive parents.
Surely not a movie for everyone; perhaps the best example of a sociological character study if I've ever seen one. The insight into a psychopath is quite unsettling yet unfiltered. On one level, at least mine, it's kind of fascinating, even though it's also exceptionally disturbing.
