1. The Lord of the Rings – Jackson (I look at the trilogy as one story) If I have to pick one then The Return of the King
2. Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World – Weir
3. Kill Bill – Tarantino (I view 1 and 2 as one movie) If I have to pick one then part 2
4. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon – Lee
5. The Pianist – Polanski
6. The Lives of Others - von Donnersmarck
7. City of God – Meirelles
8. No Country for old men – Coen bros.
9. Children of Men - Cuaron
10. United 93 – Greengrass

Tough to choose again.

1. In The Mood For Love (Wong, 00)
2. The New World (Malick, 05)
3. Ponyo (Miyazaki, 09)
4. L'Intrus (Denis, 05)
5. Mulholland Drive (Lynch, 01)
6. Tropical Malady (Weerasethakul, 05)
7. Still Life (Jia, 06)
8. The Limits of Control (Jarmusch, 09)
9. Collateral (Mann, 04)
10. Flight of the Red Balloon (Hou, 07)

Really difficult. Well the limits made it difficult. Probably the first of these lists I've made since I've been making lists like this that hasn't included 2046, but on an unfiltered list it's a certain and close #2 below Mood (both here and on my all-time list). Also including difficult to select a Denis between L'Intrus and the equally brilliant (though in a different way) Friday Night. Same for my Weerasethakul pick and his equally strong Syndromes and a Century.

Hou also had three other excellent films this decade, and my Mann preference here is also a new change. I think what puts my #9 on here over Miami Vice and Public Enemies is the purity and leanness of its filmmaking, as well as the use of digital video to a more ambitious and artistically rich end. Probably the single most essential achievement of digital video filmmaking to date.

What else... some painful near-misses include Punch-Drunk Love, Bright Star, I'm Not There, and selections from Tsai-Ming Liang, the Coens, Tarantino, Johnnie To, Assayas and Desplechin among others.

4. Kings and Queen (Desplechin, 2004)
5. 4 months, 3 weeks and 2 days (Mungiu, 2007)

7. Yi Yi (Yang, 2000)

Thanks, Lance. Now my list doesn't look creative at all!

a lot of the films mentioned I would include in, 'the best of the decade'
a few I would not, vive la différence!


I don't if anyone else saw this film

Chaos

one of the best I have seen in the last 10 years.

Haha! Wow, have any two lists so far in these threads been so similar? Well, actually I think maybe in earlier threads. But still, all the ones on your list not on mine were in strong consideration! I forgot to mention Cache in my post, but that was just below the cut as well. Kings and Queen would have been my pick for Desplechin as well.

I kind of love and hate David Lynch at the same time. I've seen...three of his films and I only like one of them. But that one, I love so much, and I actually count him as one of my favorite directors as well. I started to watch Mulholland once, but it was about 3 am and I fell asleep in the middle, and since then, it's just something I've never had time to get back around to.
