Strictly 08

Here at roujin mansion, we don't discriminate between new and old films. They're all welcome to jump in the jacuzzi and get crazy. The following are some of the films I've gotten freaky with from the year Twenty 08.

10. Speed Racer (Andy and Larry Wachowski, 2008)

9. Shotgun Stories (Jeff Nichols, 2008)

8. Pineapple Express (David Gordon Green, 2008)

7. Cloverfield (Matt Reeves, 2008)

6. Wall-E (Andrew Stanton, 2008)

5. Sparrow (Johnnie To, 2008)

4. Two Lovers (James Gray, 2008)

3. Redbelt (David Mamet, 2008)

2. Synecdoche, New York (Charlie Kaufman, 2008)

1. A Christmas Tale (Arnaud Desplechin, 2008)

Yeah, it goes something like that. Obviously, this list will change as I see more stuff from 08 (as the foreign releases trickle in this year and whatever) so don't take this as a permanent statement on the quality of this year :)

If I was incorporating first time releases in the US as 08 then this list would be different.... I might update it and show how it might look a little later

I'm checking out A Christmas Tale for sure. I'm reading your blog on account of seeing some lists/threads on RYM if you were wondering
