The Best Film of the Decade

As the aughts near a close, we’ll be seeing more and more lists dedicated to the best films of the decade. It’s only natural; as film fans and writers, we love to put things in lists. I like making lists, looking at other lists, having discussions about how stupid or smart a certain film writer might be because of a film that is -- or isn’t -- on their list.  

Some folks get apoplectic at the idea of putting art into some kind of hierarchy; I say we do it all the time in our heads anyway, constantly comparing one great film to another because there are different levels of greatness. We don’t walk out of a terrific film and then forget about it; making lists and discussing them helps us pinpoint which films we liked and why.
