DATELINE AT LARGE (DM) -- Alright, A.O. Scott and the right-coast Times have asked readers today what they think the most important films of the last decade are ... I've posted my own list on the Times' comment section and have also posted it below, and on Facebook.  What do you think?

1) Easy Riders, Raging Bulls (2003) -- [Watch first 10 minutes here.]

2) Syriana (2005)

3) The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)

4) Slumdog Millionaire (2008)

5) No Country for Old Men (2007)

6) Traffic (2000)

7) Crash (2004/I)

8) Milk (2008/I)

9) The Constant Gardener (2005)

10) City of God (2003)


  1. I've got minor quibbles with The Royal Tennenbaums and Crash being on the list. Otherwise, fine choices.

  2. What? Anyone who knows the editors of Drifter Media knows that 'The Royal Tenebaums' is THE quintessential American-dysfunctional-family film of all time -- Gene Hackman at his best! And 'Crash' covers race relations in America.

  3. Excellent choices...especially Traffic and Crash...

  4. Solamente Dave -- I also left out 'Lord of War' ... classic.
