01. Children of Men
02. Army of Shadows (I know it's a re-release)
03. Pan's Lanyrinth
04. The Queen
05. The Science of Sleep
06. Inland Empire
07. The Proposition
08. A Scanner Darkly
09. Drawing Restraint 9
10. The Departed
11. Brick
12. The Fountain
13. Borat

I had a really hard time writing this, mainly because many of the great films that I'm seeing on many of the lists I saw (or consider to be) the top of 2005...
(The New World, Caché, Last Days, Mysterious Skin, L'Enfant, Tristram Shandy, Three Times, Palindromes, Me And You And Everyone We Know, Something Like Happiness, Bubble, Keane, A History of Violence, etc...)
as it is, I found the last half of my top thirteen list to be merely good to okay

So this is what it feels like to look at lists that I don't have to tabulate.

For me, Little Children was the standout of 2006.

And it was a good year for documentaries and docudramas.
From my '06 list:
4. When the Levees Broke
5. The Road to Guantanamo
6. An Inconvenient Truth

while others appreciated United 93

A pleasant feeling, I presume :) Thanks to these threads being bumped, I'm now inspired to fill some gaping holes in my 00's viewing (especially 2005 - searching through my viewing log I couldn't even find 10 top-ten worthy titles!)
