This week the Reader presents its critics’ year-end lists, including an alphabetical round-up of my ten favorite movies from 2010. I was reluctant to number them because they all seemed pretty damn good to me. But at the invitation of Film Comment, I submitted a numerical ballot for the year’s top 20 films; it follows at the end of this post, should you care to peruse it.
I should note that one film on my list, Enter the Void, screens all week at Gene Siskel Film Center as part of that venue’s annual roundup of critically acclaimed but little-seen films. You want to experience this one on a big screen, so chug that eggnog and get over there.
