The 10 ‘Best’ Movies of 2010 I Didn’t See
In early November, I was asked at very short notice to provide my top 10 films of the year,* meaning I had to cobble together a list in a hurry with no time to catch up on some of 2010’s more acclaimed UK releases.
So here’s the top 10 of films from Total Film’s list that I haven’t seen, and feel vaguely guilty about not having seen. My loss.
1. A Prophet
Kick-Ass [Hugely entertaining: I liked this much more than I expected.]
Monsters [Hugely convincing, and a possible game-changer if other filmmakers follow its example.]
4. A Single Man
5. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
Up In The Air [Very good, but not top 10 material]
The Kids Are All Right [Likeable, but not terribly convincing.]
8. Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans
Scott Pilgrim Vs the World [Sorry, not a fan]
Winter’s Bone [Amazing: would’ve made top 5 for sure]
* Out of interest, since I compiled that list, I’ve seen several films that might have made my top 10: Black Dynamite, Another Year and, at a push, Catfish. But definitely, categorically, not Sex and the City 2.
