Cinephile Cine-Files is an annual dossier compiling several film bloggers top 10 lists. Version 3.0 features the most selective group yet. It’s a wonderful, perhaps nerdy publication; but if you even need some sort of guide of what was hot on the big screen in 2009, this is a friendly tool. According to our little movie club, the Mexican documentary Intimiades de Shakespeare y Victor Hugo by newcomer Yulene Olaizola was the most engaging film of the year. Honorable mentions went to A Serious Man, Cinco Dias Sin Nora, Coraline, Fantastic Mr. Fox and Inglorious Basterds.
Just to refresh your memory, these are the best films of 2009 according to yours truly, read my short reviews for each one of them (in Spanish) on the embedded dossier.
