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.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    “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.
