Brutal, Beautiful.

Simple story which glued me eyes to it.

15 Up (2009)

Awww, what a great movie. There's not much I can say that hasn't been said numerous times already. It's heartbreaking stuff but really funny and exciting too. In fact it's exactly what the last Indiana Jones film should've been. Saw it as a rubbish download copy, then 2D in the cinema and finally 3D in the cinema and the story got through no matter what. Proof that 3D is just unnecessary. Can't wait for the Blu-Ray.



14 Control (2007)

Not just heart breaking, heart wrenching. This confident biopic is a painful joy to watch.



13 The Visitor (2007)

A wonderful and little seen film. A well deserved Oscar nomination for Richard Jenkins.
Couldn't stop grinning whenever Walter started bangin' those drums.

12 Napoleon Dynamite (2004)

A freakin' great comedy. Man.





11 24 Hour Party People (2002)

The 2nd film in the list with a portrayal of Ian Curtis (and it's just as good as the one in Control), this film means a lot to me and it's a shame it just misses the top ten. The music is bloody marvellous in this and there's some brilliant scenes. Steve Coogan has never been better either.

Good lord, that is just so offensively wrong. I don't understand how anyone could rate that awful Dynamite film higher than something as profound and moving as The Visitor. If you want an overly quirky modern comedy about losers, Eagle vs Shark is the way to go.

I get what you're saying PA but to say the ranking is outright wrong is a bit unfair imo.
Attempting to put films in order of which is best is daft really, it's all a matter of taste. But still we carry on making lists and watching awards shows.
I'm not saying Napolean Dynamite is categorically the better film, in fact I struggled a bit about where exactly to place The Visitor.

I've seen The Visitor once only, but absolutely adored it. I've seen Dynamite countless times and it still entertains me. That's what I based it on.
Anyway, this is a collection of 100 films I like where mostly the rankings are irrelevant. They just add to the drama a bit.

So in summary, yeah you're probably right. If there was a scientific way of measuring artistic merit The Visitor would likely be the better film out of the 2 in question. But this isn't science. It's favouritism.

I'm very sorry about that, I was very much unfair. There's just certain films that I get viciously angry about if people say they like them, and Dynamite is, unfortunately for you, one of them. It's nothing personal, just an irrational hatred of the movie. The Visitor is amazing, though, so its mere presence here fills me with joy. And with Up, Pan's Labyrinth and 24 Hour Party People on this page as well, I think I can forgive your high placing of the Dynamite.

I think the problem, here, is that Napoleon Dynamite is considered one of the most marmite films out there. Personally I have it down as confusingly successful unwatchable crap - and I'm far from alone.

Netflix in the US have (or had) a comp to improve its predictive recommendations - and apparently it is basically all about NapDyn. It's one of the very few films that none of the models can incorporate properly because there is no way to predict who'll love it and who won't and there seems to be very few in the middle.

The Visitor is, of course, superb

Right, Top ten time is here. Gonna try an post at least most of it today (if not all of it) cos I've got an exam this week which I really must prioritise for.
For that reason don't expect wordy blurbs.
I will say however, that these particular ten films reflect who I am the most out of the whole 100. The fact I enjoyed these the most tells you about my personality, my life experiences and also what I respond to in a story.

A parenting theme again. But also loss, trust and friendship. All pretty universal themes really, but done so well. And it's so damn quotable. Just keep swimming - Dude!

8 RIP: A Remix Manifesto (2008)

A brilliant documentary about how copyright laws around the world are being challenged in the online digital world. Some really interesting sections on Disney and the law. It focuses on a mashup artist known as Girltalk and is simply a doc to make us think. Not only that, but putting it's money where it's mouth is, the film is available to watch and remix free online. Eventually the film will be rereleased with added viewer content. Dabbling in a bit of online remixing and DJing myself, the film really appealed to my creative side.
If you want to see it for yourself, the film can be watched in chapters for free HERE

7 Young@Heart (2007)

Another documentary about music. And blimey, this is a real tear jerker. Those who know me personally could tell you I have a bit of an obsession about older people, in fact I;m just fascinated completely about the ageing process in general. Always have been. This doc follows the real life Young @ Heart Chorus (who I actually saw perform in Manchester last year, they were brilliant), the group of 73-88 yr olds who sing rock, funk & soul classics. And it's not just a gimmick. The songs they perform are carefully chosen to reflect whoever is singing and they sing with not much vocal ability but a heap of raw emotion. Witness the performance of Coldplay's Fix You or James Brown's I Feel good to really 'get it'. It's inspiring stuff this one. Plus there is suspense, not knowing who exactly will make it to the end of the running time. I haven't seen a better documentary all decade.

6 Sweet Sixteen (2002)

Forget Avatar. This is proper immersive cinema. No glasses required.
If you want know what it feels like to be a Glaswegian teenage boy then this is the film for you. It's heightened realism, improvisational feel and collaborative approach made me become Liam for the film's running time. Unfortunately the need to watch it with subtitles reminded me I was watching a film the first few times. But it's not only Ken Loach's best film of the decade, for my money, it's his best film full stop.


Top 5 next - any guesses what might be included?

Eternal Sunshine maybe? That would be near the top of my list if I ever got round to making one. Some other top ten contenders like Almost Famous and You Can Count On Me you've already mentioned. Maybe another documentary but I cant think of any. Nice list and I was surprised when I counted that there are about 30 I've not seen yet, but I'll keep an eye out for some of them.

5 Shaun of the Dead (2004)

Simply the best comedy zombie movie ever made. Seriously, I think this would be hard to improve on. A film I love just as much now as the first time I clapped eyes on it.



4 Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

A film for the romantic in me. It's sublime this and although a little obvious, I couldn't let it place anywhere other than near the top. Love it.




3 City of God (2002)

I suppose this is a little obvious too, but I don't care. I think it's faultless and I love it.





2 This is England (2007)

My number 2 is a masterpiece. This film has so much power. It really transported me back to 1983. Shane should be very proud of this. Great script, great soundtrack, even better haircuts. Plus it has just the right amount of Roland Rat. Wonderful.


The number 1 film will be revealed fairly shortly.

And this decade's number one is.......


















































1 Lilja 4 Ever (2002)

All those other 99 films mean a lot to me. They're great. In my opinion of course. But this film. This is on a different level.
It's a strange choice for #1 I suppose. It couldn't really be called entertainment. It's as bleak a film as I've ever seen. But still, amongst the sadness and tragedy there's hope. This film moved me in a way no other has. So it had to be number one.
I'm just surprised I've not seen it any any other decade lists recently. maybe not that many have seen it.
If you haven't then make it a top priority. It's a work of perfect art.




And that's it. My whole 100. I enjoyed doing it, mainly cos it's the first time i can read one of these lists knowing I've seen every film on it.
Thanks for all the comments so far, even the Passion debacle.

Oh and one last thing - a couple of honorable mentions for films I've just seen this past week which would probably make the 100 if I was doing it now. -
Anvil: The Story of Anvil - A great documentary about a failed heavy metal group
&
Hunger - The story of Bobby Sands hunger strike. Wow! what a film that is.

Thanks.

Wow, I echo the previous comment, a very original, almost unusual choice for the top spot. Great to see The Visitor so high (it almost makes up for Napoleon Dynamite featuring so highly!). But yes, a great achievement, ten was heavy enough for me, I dread to think how difficult a top 100 was!

That's a seriously good list there. My only criticism would be that foreign cinema isn't represented too well in a decade where we really became more aware of foreign films. Still, plenty of a great choices in there as well as a few I've not catched but will be doing so.

THey have a Moodysson box set of 3-4 films (4 I think) for about 7-8 - or at least did have, if you're lucky.

Cheers, but I actually thought there's a reasonable amount of foreign films included here. Obviously I could only include stuff i'd seen and there's quite a lot of stuff out there I haven't got round to watching yet (notably Diving Bell & Butterfly, Hidden and Irreversible. All of which I suspect would've been jostling for a position had I seen them).

The other thing is, I'm not entirely sure what constitutes a foreign film. Is it the funding that matters? Or is it the director perhaps. Or maybe a film with subtitles would count.

At my reckoning the following films are definitely foreign titles -
The Man Without A Past
Tell No One
Man On Wire
The Orphanage
Amelie
Battle Royale
Belleville Rendezvous
Whale Rider
Spirited Away
Pan's Labyrinth
Let The Right One In
City of God
Lilja 4 Ever


So that's 13, 3 of which made the top ten that most people would agree are foreign films in the sense that they could be nominated for best foreign film at the Baftas or academey awards, some of them even have been). I think that's not bad really.

And then what about Grizzly Man & Rescue dawn, both directed by Werner Herzog? American money maybe, but a foreign artistic vision in both films.
If I was being really cheeky, I could also include Inglourious Basterds, District 9, Darjeeling Limited, 28 Weeks later, Children of men, Ratatuoille, Borat, Che Part 1, In Bruges, Sweet Sixteen, Once and maybe even the Rings movies. They all have something international about them.

The thing is, the list is films I liked, no matter where they were made, who paid for them and in what language they used.
If I'd purposely tried to "represent" foreign cinema (say a 50/50 split) then it would not have been an accurate reflection on my preferred films. but maybe you're not criticising the list. maybe you're criticising me for not seeing enough foreign films. if so, I could justify myself with issues of availablity or other excuses, but in fairness i'd probably agree with you. I'd love to watch more films of every nationality. i'll work on it.

Bloomin' 'eck. It was just an observation! 13 out of 100 isn't a massive amount, but like you said..you were just compiling a list of films you enjoyed. When I'm making a list and I'm stuck while trying to work out what to keep in and what to take out, I try and balance it out. So if I have a lot of films from one country or by one director I'll use that as sort of a tie-breaker if I'm torn between two or more films.

Anyway, I wasn't having a go...I liked the list!
