Year-End Movie Survey, Question 11
In "Take 7," the 7th annual film critics poll conducted by the Village Voice, the Top 10 movies of the year, as chosen by 103 movie critics are:
1. A History of Violence
How many of these movies did you see? How do your own tastes match up overall to the critics? Also, feel free to say anything you care to about the poll itself.
I have seen six of these (two I couldn't finish), and the only one I cared for barely squeezed on the list. Maybe thatís because Last Days was the most mainstream of these obscure titles, which I know J. Hobermann (the Voice's chief critic) has a proclivity to reject. But Iíll say this much: Iíd rather take a chance and give these ten a shot rather than sit through (in some cases, for the second time) the top ten films ranked by Box Office Mojo (see next question).
After rattling on here for 3500 words, right now I think I'd rather zone out to a rerun of Diff'rent Strokes...
