Top 5

My annual Top 5 list, also to be found here.

1. About A Boy
2. Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
3. Nueve Reinas (Nine Queens)
4. Y Tu Mamá También
5. Insomnia

It was really tough knocking out the two 4-Star Spielberg films this year, Catch Me If You Can and Minority Report, but I really felt these 5 films were the cream of the crop this year. Insomnia got the edge for the immersive, miasmic atmosphere it was able to maintain for 2 hours. Honorable mention should go to Enigma and Punch-Drunk Love for being excellent, if slightly flawed, films.
