The film journalism world does a lot of hemming and hawing about what the best of the best of the best is whenever a year ends. It’s natural – a chapter is closing on the arbitrarily chosen time-system we’ve chosen, and people are all contemplating their lives and the things that impact them. Perhaps that’s why my “45 Best of February” List never took off. Bad timing.
But with the end of the decade fast approaching, everyone and their Dog Skip is posting up what they think was the tops of the ten years.
Except, no one is asking you.
Which is stupid, because you have just as much claim to call out the best films. You’re a fan. You love movies. You’re just as entitled to flaunt your opinion as fact as any other publication on the planet.
So as Neil and I are busy chopping down our list from 3,000 to 30 (using a specially patented algorithm), we want to know what makes YOUR list. What movies from 2000-2009 inspired you? Enraged you? Got you to bolt up from your chair and applaud? What changed you? Challenged you?
What movies did you fall in love with?
And which ones from that massive list would make your Best Of cut?
We demand to know.
