My Top 50 Films of the Decade…

Always a more controversial one. Which is why I’ve NOT put these in order because somehow it’s harder to compare two films than two albums.

Please feel free to take issue and if there’s something obvious missing it might be because, for one reason or another, I haven’t seen it (I also spend my time away from my house or the cinema venturing in to the world and talking to other people).
