best films of the past decade

… and while I’m on the subject of media critique

Also, I was outraged by this here shallow list by the (London) Times !
[Is this The Times 2009 a.d. ?!? poor anglosaxons, you’re so out of touch with “ROW” (rest-of-world) !]
And so I made my own list of “best films 2000-2009″ – what’s your top ten?
