My Top Ten of 2009

It took me long enough, and it’s not even like I have write-ups, reviews or any real insight… I haven’t even watched a 2009 film since like… 2009. Some background; I watched 72 releases last year in theatres and on DVD. I enjoyed most, hated a few. The top 6 or so are among the best films I’ve ever seen. I’ve written about a few of them already, many of them not. I don’t have much else to say.

  1. Love Exposure (Sion Sono)
  2. A Serious Man (Coens)
  3. Inglourious Basterds (Quentin Tarantino)
  4. Bright Star (Jane Campion)
  5. Adventureland (Greg Motolla)
  6. The White Ribbon (Michael Haneke)
  7. Fantastic Mr. Fox (Wes Anderson)
  8. The Hurt Locker (Kathryn Bigelow)
  9. A Single Man (Tom Ford)
  10. The Last House on the Left (Dennis Iliadis)
