21st century, take two

the 21st century

The They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They website has posted its annually-updated list of the 21st century’s 250 most acclaimed films. The top four movies have been the same for several years now: In the Mood for Love, Mulholland Dr., Yi yi, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Nineteen movies made the list that were not on last year’s version, topped by The Social Network at #15. I have seen 144 of the 250 films … no, I’m not so anal that I know that number off the top of my head, I’m relying on the I Check Movies website. I’ve seen the top 14, and 19 of the top 20. Here is a list of the Top Ten Films from the 21st Century That I Haven’t Seen, i.e. I better add these to my Netflix queue (oops, I did this wrong ... see subsequent post):

  • The Social Network
  • Black Swan
  • Carlos
  • The King’s Speech
  • 127 Hours
  • True Grit
  • Inside Job
  • Dogtooth
