Movies Of The Year: 2008 (Part Two)

Finally, here is my end of the year list for 2008. This list is for comparative purposes, so I’ve included (and italicized) all those films from earlier years that made it to US theatres for the first time in 2008. My actual 2008 list (to be found at The Big List) will only include those films that imdb lists as 2008 films. That list will continue to be updated as I catch up with films I still haven’t seen (Milk, Synecdoche New York) and get to films that haven’t been released here yet (Three Monkeys, Red Cliff). Next week, I hope to have a third Movies Of the Year 2008 post that will actually include some comments on some of these movies (a novel concept around here lately, I know). That said, here’s the list:
