Indiewire unveils Critic’s Top 100 List

It has easily become one of my yearly favorites lists: mostly because of its precision on naming those (films and people) that are shunned and/or appreciated for some reason or another. This year's Indiewire's Top 100 acknowledges what virtually every other critic's list didn't do: the February-released David Fincher's Zodiac is a damn fine piece of filmmaking (and I've got to wait for a little while more to submit my final top 20 list with There Will Be Blood only receiving an unfairly post Xmas release) and 4 Month's Anamaria Marinca offers a perf that merits top accolades perhaps more so than Away From Her's and La Vie en Rose's favorites.

Zodiac Indiewire Top 100

4 Months Best Actress

The list also acknowledges the performance of Mathieu Amalric in Diving Bell – it is a largely off screen narration – but brilliantly spoken and acted. Blanchett is by far the top choice for Best Actress = relief. What this list also does is remind us of titles that we should seek out despite them being difficult to find (Syndromes and a Century, Colossal Youth) and it gives high kudos to foreign art-house projects I Don't Want to Sleep Alone and Regular Lovers. Finally the must see lists with potential gems are the Best first films and Best Undistributed films. Click here for the complete list.
