Top films of the decade

As the year/decade draws to a close I thought it’d be interesting to see which films have left the biggest impression on me. Naturally, I didn’t catch every film released over the past ten years but here’s my personal top ten:

1) Oldboy: 2003 – South Korea
2) Amores Perros: 2000 – Mexico
3) Mystic River: 2003 – America
4) A Bittersweet Life: 2005 – South Korea
5) Children of Men: 2006 – UK
6) Kill Bill Vol 1: 2004 – America
7) Together 2000 – Sweden
8) No Country For Old Men 2007 – America
9) 3:10 to Yuma 2007 – America
10) Battle Royale 2000 – Japan

I’d also give the following an honourble mention: Memento, The Fall, Intacto, Infernal Affairs, The Woodsman, Bourne Ultimatum, District 9, 3-Iron, Brick, Eternal Sunshine, Primer, Lilya-4-Ever, In Bruges, City of God, Love Me If You Dare

Just realised that they’re almost all action/dramas. Weird.

    Good list, man. Just put mine together recently, was THIS close to putting Amores Perros on it. Battle Royale, I need to give that one another looksee. Haven’t heard of Together or A Bittersweet Life, putting those on the queue stat.

    Like I say, the list was more personal than just “is this film amazing?”. Naturally, I’d strongly recommend checking out ALL the films in there, and that I’ve been banging on about since this site’s been started. Looking forward to seeing the AR list-o-mania.
