There's a bit of silliness to a "Top 10" list.  It's similar to giving letter grades to movies.  We're grading art, and trying to standardize a subjective appraisal.  But perhaps the grade can be instructive.  I always hope that my grade will guide you to read the full review, and then to the movie whether I liked it or not.  I think people should see as many movies as possible, but I know that's not realistic.  Tickets cost too much, audiences are increasingly rude (I can't remember the last time I went to a non-press or non-Drafthouse screening, and someone didn't take out his or her cell phone), and the amount of entertainment options can be overwhelming.  That's where I think a Top 10 list matters.  If you see only ten movies this year, these are the ones you should check out.  I found them moving, funny, thoughtful, and enduring.  I hope you'll feel the same way. »
