CT Movies has posted its list of “The 10 Most Redeeming Films of 2007.” As one of their critics, I took part in the voting and submitted a paragraph on one pick of mine that did not make the final list. (And for what it’s worth, there are two films on this list that I have not yet seen — one, because it hasn’t even come to Canada yet, and the other, because it is fairly new and, between living in Surrey and welcoming a new baby into my life, I haven’t had many opportunities to visit Vancouver arthouse theatres lately.) The “top ten” list proper will be posted next week.
