David Campion: Top Films of 2010Posted: January 23, 2011 | |
1: THE HOUSE OF THE DEVIL
Ti West is the most important name in American horror right now. This is his first masterpiece.
2: THE SOCIAL NETWORK
Armie Hammer for ‘man of the year’.
Arthouse horror is on the rise. YIPPPEEE.
4: ANOTHER YEAR
‘Come Dine with me’ directed by Mike Leigh. Loved it.
5: SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD
A $60 million film, aimed at a niche audience. Probably won’t happen again anytime soon, so we’ll just have to saviour this one.
6: SHUTTER ISLAND
The best director in the world shows no signs of growing old. The long tracking shot of the nazi’s being gunned down is as good as anything Marty has shot before.
7: A SERBIAN FILM
Anything as ballsy as this is always going to attract my attention, but the film has merits way beyond its controversy. One to watch with the family this Christmas.
Greta Gerwig. Greta Gerwig. Greta Gerwig. Greta Gerwig. Greta Gerwig. Greta Gerwig. Greta Gerwig.
9: A PROPHET
Was my number 1 for many months, but I haven’t graced it with a second viewing yet. Elegant, streetwise and brutal.
10: EXIT THROUGH THE GIFTSHOP
Funny, satirical and enlightening.
David Campion is the Co – Director of Patrol Men
