Best films 2000 & 2001


The only way to consider what the best films of the decade were is to make a list of the top ten [or so] year by year.
It was a heck of a good decade. I'll do one post each day this week.
>2000
Aimee & Jaquire
Beau travail
Croupier
The Girl on The Bridge
Humanite
Human Resources
The Idiots
It All Starts Today
Pollock
Ratcatcher
Traffic
Yi Yi
Wonder Boys
You Can Count on Me


>2001
Amelie
Amores Perros
La Cienaga
Chunhyang
Code Unknown
The Gleaners and I
In The Mood For Love
Last Resort
The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring
Memento
Mulholland Drive
Under The Sand
Wisconsin Death Trip

----------
I will try to be consistent with one rule and that is the film needs to have been released for a regular run in either NY or LA the year it is listed. If it played at a festival or was released in another country in an earlier year then it does not count until the year it gets an actual release in the US.

Those are good ones. I had forgotten some of the films from these years until I looked at the actual lists I had made back then.
