Contemporary Film

If you're ever tempted to mutter "they don't make 'em like that any more," a brief look at contemporary film on DVD will teach you the error of your ways. The list of modern classics grows every year. Contemporary film makers are breaking new ground (Brokeback Mountain, anyone?) and reinvigorating traditional genres (e.g. Collateral). This is how they make 'em these days - and we should be glad.
