open forum | top ten for '08 (so far)

So many movies still to see this year…but a friend recently lured me into a Facebook discussion about the best (and worst) movies of the year, so far. So I’ll share here what I wrote there. (And when I get to the end of the year, maybe that will make things just that much easier?)

Anyway, for my own *top ten, so far* list, I went through the more than 325 films that have opened theatrically in NYC this year (I still have so much I want to catch up with…). [Check out Mike d’Angelo’s full list of releases anytime.]

Snow Angels
Love Songs
Encounters at the End of the World
The Visitor
Chris & Don: A Love Story
We Are Together
Shotgun Stories

Most disappointing of ’08 so far (due to super-inflated expectations, based on my fondness for the filmmaker): “My Blueberry Nights” or “Be Kind Rewind”

Most overrated: “Young@Heart”
