Sophie’s Choice -1982 – Alan J. Pakula

If there was one scene in a movie that would encourage me to watch it over and over, it’s the scene whereby Sophie’s forced to make her most difficult choice – sad and painful, but extremely watchable. You’ve never seen Meryl Streep, who won an Oscar for her lead role, so beautifully perfect. Omid Nikfarjam


The Sterile Cuckoo – 1969 – Alan J. Pakula

24m.jpgA sober look at the experience of first love in the late 1960s. It somewhat reminded me of the atmosphere in Mike Nichols’s Graduate, so if you liked that, you’re going to love this one which is a decent adaptation too. Beautiful soundtrack. Omid Nikfarjam
