Just as good as Gravity (a similar survival thriller that’s much more highly acclaimed), no question! There’s a minimalism and starkness here that creates such a breathtaking sense of realism–not to mention a refreshingly unpretentious and authentic aura that’s a rare find in movies these days. A uniquely captivating tale of survival at sea that deserves your quiet night at home!

The Informant (2009)

I haven’t seen close to all of Matt Damon’s films, but of the ones I have seen, this has got to be my favourite performance of his. The awkwardness, the excitability, the defensiveness, the habitual lying; Mark Whitacre is a fascinating character played to perfection by Damon in this zany corporate comedy with a great deadpan sense of humour and quirky editing a la director Steve Soderbergh’s Ocean’s films. Give it a try!
