The American Film Institute has unveiled its schizophrenic list of the top 10 films of the year, and it’s a strangely delightful mixture of populist choices and more fringe contenders.
The appearance of “Iron Man” is as interesting as “Wendy and Lucy” popping up, but I don’t think this collective will do much to help any of the films within. Just another fun list of the year’s best. (Speaking of which, be sure to tune in tomorrow for my own list of same. Like how I turned that into a plug?)
Not sure why “Slumdog Millionaire” was snubbed. Is it considered an American production? Anyway, here’s the list:
“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”
“The Dark Knight”
“Wendy and Lucy”
