What, in your opinion, is the best movie of the past decade or so?

I nominate A beatiful Mind.

I'd say a big no to that. Despite that movie, pretty much the whole culture is still a slave to Adam Smith.

Jesus, I'm so old I was going to say "American Beauty," or "Out of Africa." But they are older than ten years.

Wow . . . I really don't know. I can't come up with anything good enough.

Your rules are sloppy. What is "a decade or so"? Your example is 12 years old. I'm going to take advantage of the vague timeline restrictions and go with:

Congrats R8 for being even more ridiculous than the OP. Crash will always sting as the worse BP winner since Shakespeare in Love, with a Beautiful Mind being the runner up IMO.

I'd say it's a tie between Mulholland Drive and LOTR trilogy, District 9 and Billy Elliot. I know, it's a big tie.

I really liked the deconstruction theme of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Inception, and Memento, the movie that affected me the most was "Requiem for a Dream" even though it was such a downer and depressed the hell out of me, I thought it was brilliantly made and Ellen Burstyn's performance was magnificent.

Since we are being flexable, I'd say, The Matrix.

I have to agree with Milk, only because of Sean Penn. Incredible performance.

Loved this years Beasts Of The Southern Wild, Life of Pi. Two of the best movies I've seen in years. I would also say Up is in there as well. Inception was pretty genius.

The German film "Three". One man tops another man and it's the first time I've seen it portrayed correctly outside of a porn movie.

by Anonymousreply 3201/07/2013

The Lives of Others. Ghost World. I saw Finding Nemo recently in 3D and it gets better with age. Of course Up is a great movie also...

I would say Lost in Translation. It's a very meditative film.

I love a good comedy, so for me it's Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Still watch it sometimes and I still burst into laughter. So whip smart, so hilariously wicked and off beat funny.

Titanic r30? First, that was in 1997. Second, it was a sappy film for the mass.

No contest:

"Hedwig and the Angry Inch" (2001)

(2001 may have been the last great year of cinema including indies on their last gasp: "Mulholland Drive", "Amalie", "Ghost World", "Royal Tennenbaums", "In the Bedroom", "Monster's Ball", "L.I.E.", "Y Tu...", and, yes, "A Beautiful Mind" which both fooled me (that second act twist) and moved me.

Best of Youth - an Italian movie, apparently released in theaters but more of a mini-series.

Along the same though - I Am Love, another Italian film, with Tilda Swinton.
