Another Top 10

Occasional FCM contributor Eric Dienstfrey has sent us his top ten list of the decade, and like most lists from Eric it comes with certain rules: There can be no two films by the same director and there must be at least one sequel. In addition, if a film saw a world premiere in 1999 but did not get an official release until 2000 it was not included in the pool of films.

Before Sunset (2004, Richard Linklater)

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004, Michel Gondry)

The Five Obstructions (2003, Lars von Trier)

In the City of Sylvia (2007, José Luis Guerín)

Millennium Mambo (2000, Hou Hsiao-hsien)

Mulholland Drive (2001, David Lynch)

The Piano Teacher (2001, Michael Haneke)

Regular Lovers (2005, Philippe Garrel)

Werckmeister Harmonies (2000, Béla Tarr)

Yi yi (2000, Edward Yang)

I could have just as easily swapped out Millennium Mambo for Flight of the Red Balloon or The Boss of it All for The Five Obstructions, or even School of Rock for Before Sunset, and perhaps on another rainy day I would have done so.

And because a list of only ten films is boring (and in this case perhaps a bit pretentious) I'm including 40 more, most of which appear to come from the later half of the decade.

24 Hour Party People (2002, Michael Winterbottom)
25th Hour (2002, Spike Lee)
The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005, Judd Apatow)
Adventureland (2009, Greg Mottola)
A.I. (2001, Steven Spielberg)
Anchorman (2004, Adam McKay)
Bad Santa (2003, Terry Zwigoff)
Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (2007, Sidney Lumet)
Bug (2006, William Friedkin)
Cloverfield (2008, Matt Reeves)
Dan in Real Life (2007, Peter Hedges)
District 9 (2009, Neill Blomkamp)
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (2007, Julian Schnabel)
Fat Girl (2001, Catherine Breillat)
The Fountain (2006, Darren Aronofsky)
Gerry (2002, Gus Van Sant)
Grizzly Man (2005, Werner Herzog)
Happy-Go-Lucky (2008, Mike Leigh)
The Hurt Locker (2008, Kathryn Bigelow)
I'm Not There (2007, Todd Haynes)
The Incredibles (2004, Pixar / Brad Bird)
Inglourious Basterds (2009, Quentin Tarantino)
Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang (2005, Shane Black)
Let the Right One In (2008, Tomas Alfredson)
Marie Antoinette (2006, Sofia Coppola)
Mutual Appreciation (2005, Andrew Bujalski)
The Namesake (2006, Mira Nair)
Notre Musique (2004, Jean-Luc Godard)
Once (2006, John Carney)
Rachel Getting Married (2008, Jonathan Demme)
Redacted (2007, Brian De Palma)
Role Models (2008, David Wain)
The Shape of Things (2003, Neil LaBute)
Snow Angels (2007, David Gordon Green)
The Squid and the Whale (2005, Noah Baumbach)
The Story of Marie and Julien (2003, Jacques Rivette)
Summer Hours (2008, Olivier Assayas)
There Will Be Blood (2007, Paul Thomas Anderson)
United 93 (2006, Paul Greengrass)
Vicki Cristina Barcelona (2008, Woody Allen)

Thanks, Eric!

Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it
cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.
