Encouraged by Dzentelman, I have prepared the list of top ten movies of 2005. Those had the biggest impact on me. Some have crushed me, others simply took my breath away. This list is, of course, entirely subjective.
- Hotel Rwanda
- Million Dollar Baby
- Garden State
- Sin City
- Broken Flowers
- Taegukgi hwinalrimyeo
What is surprising (well, maybe not really…) is that most of those are American movies (70 per cent, occupying all top positions). They may not be Hollywood movies per se, as each one represents a class of its own, yet still they are not in any way foreign. And I’m known for my tastes in European and Asian cinema. How strange.
PS: Some of those are listed as 2004 movies on iMDB, however, I had the chance to watch them in 2005, so they have their place in the above list.
