02:18 pm - More films of the decade
Looking at The AV Club top fifty films of the decade reminds me to add two more 'best films' to that list, both of which I loved.

Adaptation (2002)
Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… And Spring (2003)

There are a few more that I thought were very good, but I'm not sure if I'd put them into my very top list

A History of Violence
The Man who Wasn't There
United 93
Children of Men
Dark Knight
There Will be Blood

There are a bunch more, like Oldboy or City of God, that were surely brilliant but I haven't seen all the way through. The more I think about it, the more I feel this has been a pretty good film decade.

I've seen a grand total of eight-and-a-half of these movies. I loved Moulin Rouge! (2001), Audition (2001), Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000), Mulholland Dr. (2001), Talk To Her (2002) and Spirited Away (2001).

I detested Pan’s Labyrinth (2006) and Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003).

I fell asleep halfway through Memento (2000), and I'm only sorry I didn't fall asleep earlier.

I have no interest at all in seeing any of the other movies on the list.

Well I thought Kill Bill was overrated too. I can't judge well enough to recommend any of the ones you haven't seen because I haven't quite grasped what works for you.

Of the ones I liked, Mulholland Dr was by far my favourite.

Movies that would have made my top 50 of the last decade list: Shadow of the Vampire (2000), Brian de Palma's Femme Fatale (2002), Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette, Neil Jordan's Breakfast on Pluto (2006), Yimou Zhang's Hero (2002), Steven Shainberg's Secretary (2002), Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Amélie (2001), Bill Condon's Kinsey (2004).
