Favorites of 2009

It is time for the annual listing of my favorite films released in the past year. Some titles may have been featured on critics' lists from last year, but they didn't play on a screen in the Bay Area until at least January. I was able to make it out to the theaters at least 26 times this year, and have watched more than 10 other films at home that also came out this year...These were the films that I enjoyed or affected me the most.

10.) Medicine for Melancholy (Barry Jenkins)

9.) An Education (Lone Scherfig)

8.) the Brothers Bloom (Rian Johnson)

7.) Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (Werner Herzog)

6.) Revanche (Gotz Spielmann)

5.) the Wrestler (Darren Aronofsky)

4.) Hunger (Steve McQueen)

3.) Moon (Duncan Jones)

2.) A Serious Man (Joel & Ethan Coen)

1.) Inglourious Basterds (Quentin Tarantino)
