The Year 2010

While not having seen a substantial amount of what 2010 had to offer, I did have the absolute pleasure of attending my very first festival event, during which I caught screenings of both Blue Valentine and Hesher: two of the year’s more noteworthy (if polar opposite) offerings, the former especially. Contrary to popular belief, 2010 was a pretty good year for film, innovation specifically, having seen the likes of Edgar Wright’s wildly entertaining, stylistically savvy Scott Pilgrim vs. the World in conjunction with Christopher Nolan’s widely lauded, conceptually saturated sci-fi epic Inception and the nail-biting, uncomfortably tense and genre-bending Black Swan from one Darren Aronofsky. For my detailed thoughts on each one of these films and others, feel free to either peruse the index below, arranged according to my personal opinion of each, or my annual “Best of” list featuring musings on the ten best titles of the year and a list of honorable mentions that just missed the cut. Scroll to the very bottom for links to my top ten best of the year along with last and next year’s archives.
