Strike by Sergei Eisenstein
Shallow Grave by Danny Boyle

are the only good debuts I can think of off the top of my head. John Boorman's Point Blank is supposed to be good too but I haven't seen it.

It's class.

Point Blank is a good movie. I didn't realize that was Boorman's first film.

Strike is great too. I used to study film and I watched that in a film history class. I thought that was the best silent film we watched in that class.

Just watched L4yer Cake by Matthew Vaughn which is his first and is shit hot.  It must have impressed some others as well as he's been given the job of doing X-Men 3 (hmm).

There was an unexpectd nod to SL 2/3s of the way through with a slow pan to an extreme close up of the eyes but he went a bit further and pulled back again and the character was wearing different clothes and in a different location.  Oh and someone in bed got killed with a pillow being put on their head and then shot.

Fantastic film with a relatively unknown cast other than Michael Gambon (The Singing Detective) as a crime Uberlord and Lieutenant O' Brien from Star Trek TNG as a bit of a psycho.  Watch and enjoy.  This may be a director to keep an eye on.
