Sight and Sound's Films of 2010

The Mubi blog has a list up from Sight & Sound magazine of the round up of critical votes for best films of the year. List below, bolded I have seen, italicized I want to see:

1.The Social Network
2.Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives
3.Another Year
5.The Arbor (Wow - don't think I've heard of this one)
6= I Am Love
Winter’s Bone
8=The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu
Film Socialisme
Nostalgia for the Light
A Prophet
13= Certified Copy
Meek’s Cutoff
15= Dogtooth
Enter the Void
Mysteries of Lisbon (maybe - I can't tell if I'd love it or be bored to tears)
Of Gods and Men
19=Aurora (Don't know this one either)
Exit Through the Gift Shop
Four Times
The Ghost Writer
Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow

Lists like these always spring to mind when people say there are "no good movies anymore". (My parents say that a lot). There are so many good movies out there. You just have to seek them out. They are rarely the big hollywood productions that get 99% of the marketing (Inception aside). The only reason that I know most of the films on this list is from reading news, reviews and buzz coming out of the festival circuit (particularly the foreign circuit for several of these).
