Kick-Back Friday: #158


Winner of last year’s Oscar for the Best Foreign Language Film, The Secret in Their Eyes (2009) is an impeccably crafted Argentinian crime thriller that actually improves on repeat viewing. A plot description can be found on numerous sites. Suffice it to say (cryptically) that the story glides on the theme of passionspecifically for the discovery of truth and for romantic love.

Viewing in HD is urged, if only to fully appreciate a stunning, seamlessly edited scene shot at a professional soccer match. I can only guess that filming required a helicopter, a crane, and a steadicam operator with wings.
