My most recent five:

Nixon
Overlong Oliver Stone-directed biopic of the scandal-ridden President. Anthony Hopkins and Joan Allen are pretty good as Dick and Pat, but James Woods is especially on the mark as H.R. Haldeman. Nice use of newsreel footage, shakycam, and B&W scenes for flashbacks.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Saw the 2011 American remake again. A great cast and a great script, set against a chilly Swedish winter backdrop. One of my favorite recent thrillers.

Deconstructing the Beatles: Revolver
A very entertaining, interesting film of one of historian, musicologist and Beatles expert Scott Freiman's well-researched multimedia lectures. Definitely worth a look for any Beatles fan.

Deconstructing the Beatles: Sgt. Pepper's
Ditto, on the group's game-changing 1967 album.

The Hunt for Red October
Despite Sean Connery's bizarre Scots-Russian accent, still a fun, exciting Cold War naval technothriller.
