The first is a list of the most critically received movies of the decade from Metacritic.com (a rival to rottentomatoes). It’s a great list and should make you run to your Netflix listing. Pan’s Labyrinth came in first. It also divides them into wide releases as well as genres like musical and best comic book adaptation.
This second is a great list. IFC.com list seven movies that pushed the boundaries of storytelling, movies that are a must see for all screenwriters who write according to books and classes. I haven’t seen two (No Rest for the Wicked and Tropical Malady), but intend to complete the list.
Also from IFC.com, the seven most influentical filmmaking countries of the ’00’s (and no, the U.S. is not on them). Right now, Korea and Romania (of all places) seem to lead with Argentina possibly no far behind.
