This list is slightly hindered because a) It’s only august as I first post it and b) I don’t live in a city that gets alot of the films I really want to see. That being said, I’m still pleased with the year so far. There have been many excellent films this year, with budgets big and small. And the rest of the year looks absolutely terrific. I fully expect things like Melancholia and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to wind up high up on the list by year’s end.
