Best of the Decade: A Summary
I’m just going to use this post to summarize my list, but first I’m going to name some movies that just missed making my top ten. The list was a lot of fun to make, and it was extremely difficult to narrow down all of the great movies made over the past ten years to just my ten favorites.
Movies that just missed the top ten:
The Incredibles, City of God, Control, There Will Be Blood, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Inglourious Basterds.
Now, a simple summary for my top ten (for easy reference):
1. Zodiac (David Fincher, 2007)
2. Almost Famous (Cameron Crowe, 2000)
3. The Wrestler (Darren Aronofsky, 2008)
4. No Country for Old Men (Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, 2007)
5. Gladiator (Ridley Scott, 2000)
6. You Can Count on Me (Kenneth Lonergan, 2000)
7. Big Fish (Tim Burton, 2003)
8. Match Point (Woody Allen, 2005)
9. The Squid and the Whale (Noah Baumbach, 2005)
10. Collateral (Michael Mann, 2004)
