Strong list. It's good to see Milk of Sorrow, 35 Rhums and In The Electric Mist make it. I'm an Egoyan fan but missed Adoration and I don't know Love Exposure.

Adoration is not as good but close to The Sweet Hereafter. Love Exposure is a Japanese film, but I think there was only one showing in the L.A. area at the Silent Movie Theatre and not surpringly it sold out. :)

That's more films than I've even seen this year. Need to see 35 Rhums.

Allison said...

Yes, you do! ;)

Surjo said...

curious to know why you left out "Une Prophete" :)

Allison said...

I hadn't seen it when I made the list. Perhaps I need to update my picks.

New top 16 list. I changed my best film of the year and everything.
