Two Kevin Macdonald Films Make "Top 100 Films of the Noughties"

The Times of London has just released their "Top 100 Films of the Noughties" and Chelsea's Kevin Macdonald made the list twice! The only limit for the list were that the film have been released in the UK between 2000 and 2009, so the competition was stiff.
You'll find Kevin's Touching the Void at number forty-five, and The Last King of Scotland all the way up at number seven. The Times wrote:
Forest Whitaker gives one of the great performances of the decade as Idi Amin. He nails the Ugandan dictator’s deadly charm — he’s a charismatic monster; part amiable buffoon, part stone-cold killer.
The link to the full article is here and not to brag any more than we might have already, but make sure to take a look at the lead picture illustrating the article. And as for hot-off-the-presses Macdonald news, Kevin has just finished shooting The Eagle of the Ninth in Scotland and is going straight into the edit. Look for it in theaters everywhere early fall of 2010.
