Roger Ebert’s favorite films of 2008.

The master has spoken.

I have a rough-draft list of my favorites for 2008, and it’s almost identical to this one. Wild. That rarely happens with any critic, especially Ebert. But my current favorite film of ’08 is on this list, so if you want to start guessing… go ahead. I’m really, really surprised and delighted to see it there.

    “Iron Man” must be good then. It was in Empire Magazine’s 500 Greatest Films of All Time as voted for by readers, critics and filmmakers. I subsequently put it on my birthday/Christmas list.
