Sundae New Year's Eve
In 6 hours it will be 2008. I haven't seen nearly enough films to actually compile a Top 10, though I can tell you right now that the numbers 1 & 2 (I'm not sure of which is in which position) are Carlos Reygadas' Silent Light and John Turturro's Romance and Cigarettes. Reygadas may be the most spiritual filmmaker working today, and Turturro has an incredible eye for depth within his frame.
