This movie will rank as my favorite of the year, no matter what the Oscars do with it.

If you like car chase movies, this isn't for you.

If you like thoughtful, subtle, complex and insightful movies, this is a treasure.

It's a shame that this movie and "Pan's Labyrinth" can't both win Oscars for best foreign film.

I agree, Mr. Man, it's a real pity that both "The Lives of Others" and "Pan's Labyrinth" couldn't have won the Oscar for best foreign film. They were both outstanding films -- movies that shallow, greedy, puerile Hollywood is incapable of producing. They both shone a powerful light on historical events and issues that matter. And they both were brilliantly imagined and put to celluloid. These movies shouldn't be missed by film lovers who want to leave a theater with a full, rich meal to disgest. And "Pan's Labyrinth" really should be seen on the big screen.
