Il Mare should be on the list. That movie is just beautiful. The American version (The Lake House) was sheer crap, but Il Mare is something special.

I'm a big fan of LJJ from Good Guy to Villian, Drama to Movie, he's excellent at his craft. "Deliver Us From Evil", "Big Match" and "Operation Chromite" are my picks.
