best films of the decade

Well, this is hardly totally inclusive, and I’m doing it the easiest way I know. My movie ratings, at least the ones I’ve remembered to process, are at MovieLens, so I just did a search for movies from 2000-2009 that got my highest 10/10 rating. There aren't many American movies, there are a couple of documentaries and a couple of "made for TV" movies including one that's really a mini-series, and, unsurprisingly given my biases, no comedies. In order, by year and then alphabetically, without further comment:

Murder on a Sunday Morning
Time Out
Y tu mamá también
City of God
The Hours
American Splendor
Angels in America
Deliver Us from Evil
The Lives of Others
Pan’s Labyrinth
4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days
Red Cliff II
