Not all my favorites, but 10 films that got a lot of buzz around 2004. Which ones do you like? Which ones do you despise? Did I forget something?
2) The Aviator
3) The Incredibles
4) Fahrenheit 9/11
5) Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
6) Million Dollar Baby
7) The Passion of the Christ
8) Garden State
9) The Notebook
10) Napoleon Dynamite
I’m one of the strong defenders of Napoleon Dynamite, but even I can’t select it as best of the year. My personal choice, Howl’s moving Castle, isn’t up there, but that might be because it’s not the most well-known of the Miyazaki films.
Eternal Sunshine – It remains one of my very favorite films of all time.
