the odd sparkle
reckons Tara Brady
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.
