THE 10 BEST FILMS OF THE 2000's


The decade is coming to an end. It seems just yesterday I was at my friend's house in Staten Island celebrating 2000 and the new millenium. And now it's been 10 whole years. It's been a pretty crappy decade for movies, music, books, and everything in between. As far as movies go, here's my list of the 10 best of the worst decade for films of all time.

3 Movies that just miss the top 10:
The Lives of Others (Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, 2006)
The Return [Vozvrashcheniye] (Andrei Zvyagintsev, 2003)
Donnie Darko (Richard Kelly, 2001)

10/ Mulholland Dr. (David Lynch, 2001)
9/ Memento (Christopher Nolan, 2000)
8/ Million Dollar Baby (Clint Eastwood, 2004)
7/ The Departed (Martin Scorsese, 2006)
6/ City of God (Fernando Meirelles, 2002)
5/ Lost in Translation (Sofia Coppola, 2003)
4/ Y tu Mamá También (Alfonso Cuaron, 2001)
3/ Brokeback Mountain (Ang Lee, 2005)
2/ The Pianist (Roman Polanski, 2002)
1/ Requiem for a Dream (Darren Aronofsky, 2000)

    Great choices! Surprised that I am not alone! I watched all of these and thought each movie were brilliant! How about science of sleep?
