Ken Wardrop. We de­lighted in the mon­sters of Mother, Splice, Un­cle Boon­mee and, well, Mon­sters.

We’re still not get­ting enough non-fran­co­phone for­eign-lan­guage ti­tles, an­ime or doc­u­men­taries. We’re still wait­ing for Ter­rence Mal­ick’s Tree of Life.

We’re still wait­ing for ad­e­quate and le­git­i­mate stream­ing and down­load­ing op­tions; the in­ter­net isn’t go­ing away, you know, and nei­ther will cine­mas.

We flipped for not one, but two Werner Her­zog movies. This writer hated that the most im­pres­sive films she has seen this year – A Ser­bian Film and Black Swan – were in­el­i­gi­ble for this poll; the for­mer did not re­ceive a the­atri­cal re­lease; the lat­ter won’t hit Ir­ish cine­mas un­til Jan­uary 28th, 2011. For now we have these 10 to cher­ish.
