THE DECADE of the 2010’S
The Top 10 Films of the 2010’s (so far)
1. La La Land
Cinematic perfection! I was already convinced that I was watching greatness when Mia stopped outside the piano bar restaurant, framed by red neon lights, and she heard her theme being played inside. Dozens of magnificent scenes later, including one of the most perfectly pitched endings since “Casablanca”, this incredible musical love story immediately entered my Top 10 Films of All Time. This is a classic that will stand the test of time… a crowd favorite… a critics favorite.

Dir. Hirokazu Kore-eda tells an intimate story of a poor Japanese family that relies on small-time shoplifting to make ends meet. One cold night, they take in a neglected 5-year-old girl and care for her as their own. This is a masterful film that explores what “family” really means… and it sneaks up on you with an emotional wallop you don’t see coming. “Shoplifters” won the Palme D’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.
9.9 / 10
Darren Aronofsky’s film starts off as a creepy and eerily quiet tale. It gradually escalates through the gears, cranking up the unbearable tension until it explodes into one of the most bat-shit-crazy final acts of any film ever made. Jennifer Lawrence gives the best performance of the year. The biblical symbolism rolls in thick and fast, adding a magnificent secondary layer to be contemplated. Everything about “Mother!” is fascinating and original and a total mind-fuck.
