Wow, this is late! Dilettantsia's Top 10 Films of 2009

Some of my favorites, in a very particular order, i.e. #1 being the best.

10. Avatar
It was entertaining. I guess I have respect for the technology.

9. UP
I basically wept through this entire movie, and couldn't even bring myself to write a g-d review.

8. Julie & Julia
So sue me, I had a year of massive "what am I doing with my life" crises.

7. Bright Star
Absolutely stunning, gorgeous film by Jane Campion with wonderful actors.

6. Silent Light
One of the most eerie, strange, lovely experiences I've ever had in the movie theater.

5. Two Lovers
Fucking well written love story that's not stupid. Kudos!

4. The White Ribbon
I have a thing for deeply manipulative films that take place in Germany.

3. The Hurt Locker
You know what, I haven't even seen this but I know it's good.

2. Let the Right One In
One of the best vampire movies ever made, gorgeous and confident enough to play with gender stereotypes. God, I can't emphasize how excellent this film is.

1. Inglourious Basterds
Tarentino, Nazis, and a Jewish girl taking revenge. The purest energy, the finest details.
