Ah-ha! Where is the top 10 list however? Everybody seems to be doing them, so I felt obliged to chip in. Many apologies if this list seems 'whateva.'
2-The Brothers Bloom
3-Thirst (which I really should have written a review for because no one will know what this is)
Coulda, woulda and probably shoulda made the cut: The Hurt Locker, Still Walking, Red Cliff and The Limits of Control.
And if there are some movies on the list you don't know...trust me, my top 10 for '08 was even less mainstream.
