Mrs. Brown – Judi Dench rocks as Queen Victoria later in life.
Shutter Island – Martin Scorsese directs and a Max Ritcher piece make this a haunting psychological thriller.
The Painted Veil – The soundtrak by Alexandre Desplat made this an epic tale of love, betrayal, remorse and forgiveness.
Chronic – Tim Roth stars as a Hospice nurse and this has to be one of his finest performances. The ending is positively perfect.
