You know its top ten season once The New York Times weighs in...Writers of the most important daily film criticism in this country, the paper's critics offer their top tens in Sunday's edition. Lead critic A.O. Scott, on his top ten list, named Clint Eastwood's "Letters from Iwo Jima" his top film of the year, while Manohla Dargis singled out Jean-Pierre Melville's 1969 film, "Army of Shadows," which was finally released in U.S. theaters this year, as her top movie of 2006. Finally, from Stephen Holden, "Babel" takes his top spot.
