  46. Orphée | Orpheus (Jean Cocteau | 1949) B+ Watch it for the imagery and the fantasy elements. But I personally had a hard time buying what turned out to be the central romance.
  47. Dark City (Alex Proyas | 1998) A
  48. Gone with the Wind (Victor Fleming, George Cukor and Sam Wood | 1939) A
  49. La fille du RER | The Girl on the Train (André Téchiné | 2009) B-
  50. Caché | Hidden (Michael Haneke | 2005) B+ I have never read so many opinions and theories about a movie in order to figure it out.

  67. Watching the Detectives (Paul Soter | 2007) C-
  68. Bande à part | Band of Outsiders (Jean-Luc Godard | 1964) B+ This was close to only getting a half-heart because I realized I gave Orphée a "Mixed feelings" for second thoughts that were kind of like the ones I had with this movie: There were quirky/original touches that I loved, but I can't really buy some relationships in the story. Apparently an actually silent minute of silence does wonders to elevate my opinion of a movie, haha. And in retrospect, even if I can't agree with how those relationships went along, to me they were in-character for everyone involved.

  79. Ondine (Neil Jordan | 2009) B+
  80. The Runaways (Floria Sigismondi | 2010) C
  81. Friday Night Lights (Peter Berg | 2004) A- I did not expect to like this. And I still don't understand the intricacies of American football. But thank you, Garrett Hedlund, for leading me to probably the first movie to really make me cry this year.
  82. Nowhere Boy (Sam Taylor-Wood | 2009) B-
  83. Glorious 39 (Stephen Poliakoff | 2009) B-
  84. Four Brothers (John Singleton | 2005) C+
  85. Boy A (John Crowley | 2007) B The last twenty minutes are especially heartbreaking. Andrew Garfield is amazing.
  86. Paris, je t'aime (Bruno Podalydes, Gurinder Chadha, Gus van Sant, Joel Coen, Ethan Coen, Walter Salles, Daniela Thomas, Christopher Doyle, Isabel Coixet, Nobuhiro Suwa, Sylvain Chomet, Alfonso Cuaron, Olivier Assayas, Oliver Schmitz, Richard Lagravenese, Vincenzo Natali, Wes Craven, Tom Tykwer, Frédéric Aubertin, Gérard Depardieu, Alexander Payne | 2006) B+ The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

  96. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (Edgar Wright | 2010) B
  97. El secreto de sus ojos | The Secret in Their Eyes (Juan José Campanella | 2009) B+
  98. Kynodontas | Dogtooth (Yorgos Lanthimos | 2009) A Few movies make me gasp out loud, and this is one of them. Not for the squeamish.
  99. Easy A (Will Gluck | 2010) C+
  100. Tron: Legacy (Joseph Kosinski | 2010) B- A feast for the eyes and ears.
  101. Metropolis (Fritz Lang | 1927 | 2002 restored version?) A-
  102. Julie & Julia (Nora Ephron | 2009) B
  103. Heung joh chow, heung yau chow | Turn Left, Turn Right (Johnnie To and Wai Ka-Fai | 2003) C- No need to hit me over the head with all the ~parallelisms.

  3. Emma by Jane Austen B+ The ending was too tidy for me but I really enjoyed reading this.
  4. More Sex is Safer Sex: The Unconventional Wisdom of Economics by Steven E. Landsburg B+ I can't say I agree with Landsburg's stand on the benefits of population growth (I feel like it would only hold for developed countries, at least in the middle-run) or the lack of value he places on ancient artifacts, but this book made me really think, all the more because a lot of the content is counterintuitive at first.

  6. Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire B+
  7. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald A-
