5 for 2008

Couldn't really come up with TEN great films from 2008. It was really a sub-par year for great films. When the likes of THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, and THE WRESTLER being insanely overpraised by critics everywhere....it smacks of grasping at straws.
I'll stick with five great films the year managed to give us....in no particular order.....

James Marsh's Man On Wire

Martin McDonagh's IN BRUGES

Christopher Nolan's THE DARK KNIGHT

Gus Van Sant's MILK

Roger Donaldson's THE BANK JOB
