Film Comment Readers Pick Films of the Decade

The readers of the esteemed cinephile journal "Film Comment" (which includes me) voted on the best films of the decade and the magazine published the final results.

The current issue has a great cover article about the new Paul Greengrass film "The Green Zone," which stars Matt Damon by the magazine's editor Gavin Smith.

My Film of the Decade "Cache," a 2005 French film by Austrian director Michael Haneke came in 13th.

Here are the Top Ten:

1. "Mullholland Drive" (2001, dir. David Lynch-pictured)

2. "In the Mood for Love" (2000, dir. Wong Kar Wai/Hong Kong)

3. "There Will Be Blood" (2007, dir. PT Anderson)

4. "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" (2004, dir. Michel Gondry)

5. "Talk to Her" (2002, dir. Pedro Almodovar, Spain)

6. "The Royal Tenenbaums" (2001, dir. Wes Anderson)

7. "A History of Violence" (2005, dir. David Cronenberg)

8. "The New World" (2005, dir. Terence Malick)

9. "Zodiac" (2007, dir. David Fincher)

10. Yi Yi (2000, dir. Edward Wang, Japan).

"Yi Yi" is the only film on the list that I have not seen!
