Some of it is too broad, and I wish it dug a little deeper at times, but this is one of those rare inspirational films…
Once again, my favorite movies of the year engage in overlapping cinematic conversation with one another, blurring stylistic, thematic, national, linguistic, philosophical, theological and proprietary boundaries. No one is playing the blame game here. Happy new year!
(list and links after the jump...)
"Liverpool" (Lisandro Alonso, Argentina)
"Sita Sings the Blues" (Nina Paley, USA)
Other favorites regrettably left on the cutting-room floor: "The Brothers Bloom," "In the Loop," "Of Time and the City," "Still Walking," "Observe and Report," "Gomorrah," "Watchmen," "Anvil! The Story of Anvil"...
