Favorite Movies 2010

Annnnd, here are some of the movies that I saw over the past year that I liked.
  1. Fitzcarraldo (dir. Werner Herzog) -- A gorgeous, mesmerizing, problematic and deeply weird story about an opera-fanatic with a bizarre scheme to move a steamship over a mountain. If that sentence doesn't make any sense, well, I guess you have to see it.

  2. Z (dir. Costa-Gavras) -- A tense, old-school political thriller from the '60s about the overthrow of a dictatorship in Greece, now with newly added relevance due to the wave of revolutions in the Middle East.

  3. Inception (dir. Christopher Nolan) -- Loved it, but need to see this one again...
  4. Moon (dir. Duncan Jones)
  5. Fantastic Mr. Fox (dir. Wes Anderson)
  6. Avatar (dir. James Cameron)
  7. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (dir. Edgar Wright) -- Fun and cute.
  8. Rachel Getting Married (dir. Jonathan Demme)
  9. The Devil's Backbone (dir. Guillermo del Toro)
  10. The Kids Are Alright (dir. Lisa Cholodenko)
Other: In Bruges, Sherlock Holmes, A Serious Man, Inglorious Basterds, True Grit, Tropic Thunder, Broken Embraces
