Top 250 Films of the 21st Century

Every January, the website THEY SHOOT PICTURES, DON'T THEY? re-issues their "top films of the 21st century" list to incorporate the films from the previous year. This is an interesting list to look at, particularly in light of what manages to "stay" on it: the future VERTIGOs and KANEs. Still #1 is Wong Kar-wai's IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE (photo left).


Here is a list of the 2007 additions (and link to the entire list):

17. THERE WILL BE BLOOD
21. NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN
25. ZODIAC
51. I'M NOT THERE
52. 4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS, 2 DAYS
65. THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES...
111. EASTERN PROMISES
128. ONCE
154. THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY
156. INTO THE WILD
165. PERSEPOLIS
177. RATATOUILLE
188. ATONEMENT
190. AWAY FROM HER
192. BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOU'RE DEAD
221. MICHAEL CLAYTON
235. THE DARJEELING LIMITED
236. THE SAVAGES
