Circuit 3: The Best Films Since 2008


Back in 2000, I put together my very first top 100 films of all time list after a rather exhausting and extensive two year period of watching just over 1000 films to bulk up my already solid film base. I started from A and worked my way to Z, watching films spanning from 1915 to the current date, until I had what I felt was a decent enough list of the best films of all time.

I revise the list every five years because new films come out and, well, tastes change as you mature and grow old (as this site will consistently remind you that I am). So being that next year is a revision year, Top 100 4.0, I am beginning to revisit films from the last five-plus years in order to consider them for the list.

So, my dear readers, I was hoping you would assist me by listing the three films from 2008 to current date that you felt deserved consideration for such a list. Sound fun?

While mine are yet undecided, here are the three I am currently looking at with the best odds of getting on the list, though it is early in my revision process, so the order is definitely subject to change.

My Circuit 3 for Best Films Since 2008:

  1. The Social Network (2010)
  2. Inglourious Basterds (2009)
  3. The Tree of Life (2011)

What three films do you think are the best in that time span?

What do you think?
