    indieWIRE CRITICS' POLL '08 | Chris Wisniewski

    This is the latest ballot in indieWIRE's 2008 Critics Poll, continuing the tradition of a national survey of critics by calling attention to the year's best -- and, in many cases, most overlooked -- films, providing a meaningful counterpoint to much of the year-end hoopla.

Yet "Waltz with Bashir"...
