Best Films of the Noughties

Starting top left and going clockwise: Platform, Syndromes and A Century, In The Mood For Love, Beau Travail

They might be a month too early but the Toronto International Film Festival Cinematheque has just released a list of the best films of the 2000s as chosen by a survey of film curators, festival programers, and historians.  Top of the list is the Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s Syndromes and a Century, followed by two films by Jia Zhangke – Platform and Still Life, Claire Denis’ Beau Travail and Wong Kar-Wai’s In the Mood For Love. Off to compile my own list which will certainly contain at least one film from the apocalyptic subgenre (probably Children of Men or Cloverfield).

    Or Temps du Loup? It’s actually a really strong list, though for me Import/Export is a glaring omission. Just sayin…

    I didn’t love Temps du Loup actually, although I didn’t see it in an ideal environment. I liked Syndromes and a Century but didn’t love it. I’d raise Silent Light a bit, maybe add The White Ribbon and replace Royal Tenenbaums with Borat and try to squeeze in Superbad and maybe Sin City. I’d never even heard of Import/Export.
