The New Yorker Magazine’s David Denby’s Ten Best of 2008

Most of Denby’s choices are pretty conventional. However, his inclusions of Defiance and I’ve Loved You So Long have convinced me to include those as films from 2008 I’d like to see. I had not heard of The Class, which is a French movie nominated for Best Foreign Film at the Independent Spirit Awards. I’m adding that one too. Here’s his list.

1. Defiance

2. Rachel Getting Married

3. The Class

4. The Wrestler

5. Vicky Cristina Barcelona


7. Milk

8. Trouble the Water

9. Revolutionary Road

10. I’ve Loved You So Long

The Class also won the grand jury prize at Cannes this year.

Good list (Defiance at number 1 slot is surprising), I like how you post these lists!

Cannes Grand Jury Prize winners is a marathon I should do.

Yeah, that would be a great one (I think The Wind That Shakes The Barley won last year)
