    All the lists are pretty close to each others. The proof that there were really not many great films this year.
    Though I have something to say about “four lions” (number 3 in the film school reject list).I really wanted to like this film… but sadly a brave film doesn’t necessarily make it a good one.
    Chris Morris’s constant attempts to turn it into a slapstick comedy undermines the important message behind the film and dilutes it all into a superficial exercise.
    Not a disaster, but it could have been so much better…

    I actually think that 2010 hasn’t been that bad of a year for films. Although most of the films are the same across the top ten lists of all the critics, I think that speaks more about the high quality of these particular films that others were overlooked. I also think its a good sign of things to come considering that most of the picks can be considered “mainstream” films rather than “art” ones.

    I haven’t seen Four Lions yet but I have been meaning to. Great review, by the way. I’ve seen a couple of films this year that have wildly varying tones but I still ended up enjoying them, flaws and all.

    Thanks for checking out the blog…I’ve just been browsing yours and I’m interesting in reading more..especially your Inception review.
