Your favorite films of 2001?

So, it’s been ten years…

Now that you’ve had a decade to chew on these films, I’d be curious to know what you would now choose as your top 5, 10, or 20 of 2001.

It’s a list that includes titles that weren’t accessible in the U.S. until 2001, with the exception of a festival or two. It’s quite a bit different than how I’d rated my favorites in 2001, although my favorite is *still* my favorite.

You’re invited to post your favorites too.
