The Best 10 Movies I Have Seen This Year (Tony's Version)

1.)        Gosford Park (2001)
Robert Altman’s masterpiece of multiple story lines, class distinction and murder in a 1930’s English country estate
2.)        Get Low (2010)
Robert Duvall leads a great cast.
3.)        Let the Right One In (Sweden 2004)
            Just watch it for the climactic swimming pool scene
4.)        Requiem for a Dream (2000)
            The movie that showed that Aronofsky could be a cinematic genius
5.)        In the Bedroom (2001)
The second Sissy Spacek movie on the list (Get Low was the other),Tom Wilkinson is excellent
6.)        Dirty, Pretty Things (2002)
            Gritty movie about lower class immigrants in London and what they do to survive
7.)        4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days (Romania 2007)
It’s better not to read a lot about this film, if you want to see it, just watch and see how it unfolds
8.)        In America (2002)
            A hopeful, sentimental film about Irish immigrants in New York City
9.)        In Bruge (Ireland 2008)
Michael showed me this one, very dark comedy or as I like to call it, Hit Men Having Fun
10.)      White (Poland 1994)
White is the second in  Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Three Colors Trilogy and the most fun to watch

  1. I haven't seen most of those. But thanks for the reminder that it's time to watch In America again!
