No Awards Here… 2008
The So-Called Experts Weigh In
What does it mean to publish a list of the “Year’s Best Movies”?
Here are some considerations for the past year:
So out of 603 releases, I am well familiar with 293—less than half of the films released during the year. And I’m reasonably well informed, by critical standards. This is why I continue to be reluctant to offer an opinion about which were the “best” films of the year. All I can really talk about with much assurance is which films were the best (by various standards of measure) of the films I actually saw.
Bottom line: take it all with a grain of salt…
So without further ado, here are selections from Jeff and I. I think you’ll see that the very subjective criteria used to derive these lists represent a wide variety of thinking. And almost every one of these films has been reviewed at PtP. Search away!
