Best of the Decade: Year 2000

This is the first of a series of posts that will commemorate the decade that was (or will soon be was!?).  Each few days I will name my choices for the best films of each particular year in the aforementioned decade that will soon be a was.  This will culminate just after the new year with my list of the 50 greatest films of the decade.  So without further ado I give you the year 2000.

1. In the Mood For Love (Wong Kar Wai)
2. Werckmeister Harmonies (Bela Tarr)
3. Memento (Christopher Nolan)
4. Requiem For A Dream (Darren Aronofsky)
5. Dancer in the Dark (Lars von Trier)
6. American Psycho (Mary Harron)
7. Amores perros (Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu)
8. The Heart of the World (Guy Maddin) 
9. Yi Yi (Edward Yang) 
10. O Brother, Where Art Thou? (Joel & Ethan Coen)
