Some of this list is based on Film Comment’s “150 Best Films of the Decade” list (, but a few are of my own liking. Here it goes!

1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004; Michel Gondry)
2. Donnie Darko (2001; dir. Richard Kelly)
3. No Country for Old Men (2007; Joel and Ethan Coen)

5. I Heart Huckabees (2004; David O. Russell)
6. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (2007; Julian Schnabel)
7. The Saddest Music in the World (2003; Guy Maddin)
8. In the Mood for Love (2000; Wong Kar Wai)
9. Stardom (2000; Denys Arcand)
10. World’s Greatest Dad (2009; Bobcat Goldthwait)
