Top 10 Of 2008

December 12, 2008

For the purists out there, I want to be clear that many of these films were actually released in 2007, but I didn’t get a round to viewing them until 2008. My apologies to the purists. For Seattleites, many of these titles have yet to surface in our city, and trust me when I say I’m trying incredibly hard to get them seen here. In the meantime, here’s what you might call my adulterated top 10 list for 2008:

  1. In The City of Sylvia – José Luis Guerín (coincidentally opening today at Anthology Film Archives in New York)
  2. Liverpool – Lisandro Alonso
  3. La France – Serge Bozon
  4. Import/Export – Ulrich Seidl
  5. Summer Hours – Olivier Assayas
  6. Hunger – Steve McQueen
  7. Medicine For Melancholy – Barry Jenkins
  8. When It Was Blue – Jennifer Reeves
  9. Man On A Wire – James Marsh
  10. Wall-E – Andrew Stanton

The rest of the NWFF staff will post their lists soon, but in the meantime, I’d love to hear from our audiences. Please contribute your own top 10 lists in the comments section.
