The Very Best Movies

The very best movies are not those by an astounding director, or those with a fascinating actor.
The real cult films are not only defined by their fantastic team or a great cast, they are legendary due to all the details that make a movie. A strong atmosphere, a mesmerizing score, surprising sidelines, interwoven stories, cool dialogues, a fine line-up from the leading actors to the extras, all combined in a way that makes you want to see this movie over and over again.

[DL8] was such a movie.
But it would have been nothing without all of you, who became part of this wonderful film.

Thanks a lot
Your Team DL
