Favorite Movies of 2010

I am aware that I may be the only one interested in these lists, but they do help me to think critically about the ways in which I spend my time. So, here is my list of my favorite movies that I saw this year. But first, my disclaimers.

These movies are not necessarily the best ones of 2010. They are the movies that I enjoyed, that entertained me, moved me, made me smile, or made me think more than any others this year.

These were not necessarily released in 2010. They are all new to me, however. I saw them all for the first time in this year.

I try very hard to not be influenced by what is popular. Consequently, I may be biased against the Hollywood blockbuster or New York Times Bestseller. But then again, maybe not.

Additionally, they are in no particular order. It is hard enough for me to come up with my 10 favorites. Ranking them would be almost impossible.
  • Employee of the Month
  • Bob Roberts
  • Young at Heart
  • Jimmy Carter: Man from Plains
  • Gran Torino
  • Funny Games
  • Shutter Island
  • Where the Wild Things Are
  • Lonely Hearts
