  1. Solid list dude. I still wanna see Moon...missed it when it played at Dendy. I saw A Serious Man recently on Blu Ray recently (the local release hasn't come out yet, this was a US copy) and it's fuckin' awesome. Really subtle comedy and very tragic...totally Coen Bros.

  2. I enjoyed looking over your list. I also have District 9, Up, and Up In The Air in my top 10. My favorite film from that year was Sin Nombre. The rest of my list is here:
