Just finished watching some more movies from this past year and damn, it's been one very solid year for movies this year I thought. So what's been the best everyone has seen this year?
I still have yet to see Letters From Iwo Jima and Pan's Labyrinth but out of all the rest my top movies are:
1. Man Push Cart
- A very minimalistic and simple film yet done so SO well IMO. It's an interesting look into a few days of the life of a street-cart vendor. Very well acted and amazing cinematography of the city. I liked the parallels to the story of Sisyphus in Greek myth too.
2. Little Miss Sunshine
- Might not be a popular opinion but I liked it more than 21 Grams (although not as much as Amores Perros) when comparing it to the previous Inarritu films.
4. The Departed
5. Flags of Our Fathers
6. A Scanner Darkly
7. The Prestige
8. A Prairie Home Companion
9. Monster House
- Best animated movie I've seen in a long time.
10. United 93
- Seems to be somewhat forgotten since it came out near the start of the year.
