Jonathan Glazer, 2004 (8.2*)
One of the more interesting romances in all of film. Nicole Kidman plays a young wife whose husband is out jogging one morning and suffers a sudden fatal heart attack. While still recovering a decade later and with no new love, a young boy comes into her life who knows intimate personal details of her love life, and he claims to be the reincarnation of her dead husband.

This is one of the more compelling and unique mystery films of the decade due to the understated tone maintained throughout the film. The entire story is made credible thanks to an amazing performance by young Cameron Bright as the young Sean. Kidman is excellent as usual, and her penchant for choosing interesting and creative screenplays remains intact here. Lauren Becall, Anne Heche, and Arliss Howard all have small supporting roles.

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
