    I know this is kind of obscure and you probably won’t get this Clayton, but I happen to agree with the majority of your picks. I share your love of Return of the King (and LOTR in general, I love those movies/books), but I love your decisions here for 2001.

    I am also a huge fan of Moulin Rouge! and call it one of the best of the decade. I don’t really know why I have such a visceral response to it, it’s just a perfect, beautiful, and tense movie. It never ceases to amaze me every time I view it. It’s also my Best Picture of 2001 and I just wanted to say thanks (I guess) for agreeing with a movie that is surprisingly personal to me. Keep up the good work around here too, love this place.
