Submitted for the approval of the midnight society I present my top ten of the last ten. In creating this list I must admit I was a little bias. I had to re watch a lot of flicks but only the ones I thought really deserved consideration. After realizing that such flicks that are dear to my heart just have no place on this list ( sorry Jersey Girl, Pineapple Express, and Taladega Nights) I came up with the ONLY top ten list anybody ever needs to read... Okay not the only one but this list KICKS ASS!
#10. Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
I know what your thinking, why is it so low? It was hard to put this masterpiece all the way at number ten, believe me.
#9. There Will Be Blood
We haven't seen better acting this decade, One of the all time greatest performances in an unforgettable film.
#8. The Diving Bell And The Butterfly
Just WATCH IT and you'll see. It's beauty is undeniable, I'm serious.
Soderbergh's MASTERPIECE! The best ending to any film I've maybe ever seen.
Everything in this movie works...I mean EVERYTHING! You couldn't ask for anything more in a blockbuster. I'll forever watch Ridley and Russell together. Any day of the week. I cry every time I watch.
#5. The Beat That My Heart Skipped
Romain Duris' acting blows my mind in this ridiculously awesome re-make of James Toback's "Fingers". I've never seen a film like this. And very few leave me in awe the way this one did.
#4. The Departed
I'm just gonna state the obvious here... Jack, Matty D, Leo, Marky Mark, Father Sheen, FUCKIN ALEC, the gorgeous Vera, and Marty Scorsese!!! PERFECTION! I will forever LOVE this film!
#3. It's All Gone Pete Tong
I wanna share this film with the WORLD!
#2. City Of God
I have to quote my man Roger Ebert here, "One of the best films you'll ever see." He's soooo right.
#1. 25th Hour
Spike Lee's best film since Do The Right Thing, and that's saying a lot. To me this is what movies are made for. No other film does to me what this one does...no other.
Public Apologies to my runner ups: Punch Drunk Love, Before Sunset, The Royal Tenenbaums and Dinner Rush...
Tune in next time (Mom) for my ten best of the year.
