Forest films

I'm slightly obsessed with forests. Love 'em. Think it stems from where I grew up. Can anybody recommend some films set in forests or with a large amount of time in a forest?

Yes, Infernal Affairs was much better in my opinion. The Departed just exaggerated the characters mannerisms and performances. Whereas I Affairs gave much more depth and backstory.

18. Inglourious Basterds (290 points) - I rewatched this about a month ago. It's not particularly good at all. Really indulgent and gratuitous, which I know is what Tarantino is all about, but this...

Yes, and the remake was eligible for this countdown I think.

Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 2000s Countdown

Shaun of the dead - funny film, but not in contention for my ballot.

The Departed - one of the most overrated films of al time. One of Scorsese's weakest. The original is far, far better with much...

Re: The Power of the Dog (2021)

I thought it was pretty good - 7.5 out of 10. Very well shot, as are most films set in Montana. Nice little twist at the ending.

As for Oscars, it's all dependent on money not film quality, so if...

I felt exactly the same. I liked it, didn't get all of it, but appreciated it massively and am so glad this type of cinema is being made. That ending is a headscratcher.
