“21 Grams” (2003): “This is not the same as the other movies I mentioned. I cried a lot when watching it. It’s a classic. I like movies about real people and this is one of them. It’s truthful and the characters are very touching.”

“Inglourious Basterds” (2009): “I like Quentin Tarantino a lot. This is a very strong movie. In a good movie, you will remember the characters after you watch it.”
