I'm not sure how many films I saw in December, between fifteen and twenty. I was too preoccupied with The Sopranos (I'm up to the final season) to see as many as usual. I did review most of the films I saw on the Emporium anyway. Here are the five best films I saw to end the year. First viewing only of course.
Raise the Red Lantern (Zhang Yimou, 1991)
Todo Sobre Mi Madre [All About My Mother] (Pedro Almodovar, 2000)
Hunger (Steve McQueen, 2008)
Blue Valentine (Derek Cianfrance, 2010)
How to Train Your Dragon (Chris Sanders, Dean DeBlois, 2010)
