Re: NYT Top 25 of the 21st Century

J. Hoberman's list: http://j-hoberman.com/2017/06/25-for-21/.

My single “best” film-object is followed by a list of 11 filmmakers and one academic production company (in order of “best-ness”) responsible for two or more “best films,” these followed by another eight individual movies (again in order) and finally four more tentatively advanced films (these alphabetical). I’m sure I’m forgetting some but that’s the nature of the beast—or best.



Christian Marclay: The Clock



Lars von Trier: Dogville & Melancholia (and none of his others)

Hou Hsiao Hsien: The Assassin & Flight of the Red Balloon

Jean-Luc Godard: In Praise of Love & Farewell to Language

David Cronenberg: Spider, A History of Violence, Eastern Promises, & A Dangerous Method

David Lynch: Mulholland Drive & Inland Empire

Ken Jacobs: Seeking the Monkey King, The Guests (and more)

Cristi Puiu: The Death of Mr Lazarescu & Aurora

Chantal Akerman: No Home Movie & La Captive (assuming that 2000 is part of the 21st Century)

Paul Thomas Anderson: The Master & There Will Be Blood

Kathryn Bigelow: The Hurt Locker & Zero Dark Thirty

Alfonso Cuarón: Gravity & Children of Men

Sensory Ethnology Lab: Leviathan, Manakamana, People’s Park



The Strange Case of Angelica–Manoel de Oliviera

Corpus Callosum–Michael Snow

West of the Tracks–Wang Bing

Carlos—Olivier Assayas

Che–Steven Soderbergh

Ten–Abbas Kariostami

Russian Ark–Aleksandr Sokurov

The World–Jia Zhangke



Citizenfour–Laura Poitras

Day Night Day Night–Julia Loktev:

Once Upon a Time in AnatoliaNuri Bilge Ceylan

WALL-E–Andrew Stanton


His number one pick for the 21st century, by the way, is something that wasn't even on Criticker until today (when I added it).

Re: NYT Top 25 of the 21st Century

So if anyone was wondering I looked through all 7 of the top 25 lists that were submitted by users in the thread and did a quick count of all the films that show more than once:

    6 Appearances:
    Mulholland Drive (David Lynch, 2001)

    5 Appearances:
    There Will be Blood (Paul Thomas Anderson, 2007)

    3 Appearances:

    The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (Andrew Dominik, 2007)
    Margaret (Kenneth Lonergan, 2011)

    2 Appearances:

    A Separation (Asghar Farhadi, 2011)
    Black Swan (Darren Aronofsky, 2010)
    Certified Copy (Abbas Kiarostami, 2010)
    City of God (Katia Lund & Fernando Mereilles, 2002)
    Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (Ang Lee, 2000)

    The Dark Knight (Christopher Nolan, 2008)
    Dogville (Lars Von Trier, 2003)
    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Michel Gondry, 2004)
    The Fountain (Darren Aronofsky, 2006)
    The Hurt Locker (Kathryn Bigelow, 2008)

    Inglourious Basterds (Quentin Tarantino, 2009)
    Irreversible (Gaspar Noé, 2002)
    Memories of Murder (Bong Joon-Ho, 2003)
    No Country for Old Men (Ethan & Joel Coen, 2007)
    Saraband (Ingmar Bergman, 2003)

    The Son (Jean-Pierre & Luc Dardenne, 2002)
    Spirited Away (Hayao Miyazaki, 2001)
    Synecdoche, New York (Charlie Kaufman, 2008)
    Ten (Abbas Kiarostami, 2002)
    Two Lovers (James Gray, 2008)

    Wall·E (Andrew Stanton, 2008)
    Where the Wild Things Are (Spike Jonze, 2009)
    Winter Sleep (Nuri Bilge Ceylan, 2014)


Coincidentally, the total number of films with two or more appearances equals 27 (or atleast until another user decides to contribute to this forum), so you could say it's as if we inadvertently created our own critcicker alternative to the top 25 films of the 21st Century. I must admit it has some surprising admissions, and even one from a filmmaker I've never even heard of before, but will certainly check out after this.

Some other trivia:
- Only Directors with more than one film are Abbas Kiarostami and Darren Aronofsky, both with 2 each.
-The Year with the most films is 2008, with 5, whereas 2005, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017 all have none.
- 16 of 27 films (or 59%) are English-language films. The next most-represented are French with 3, followed by Farsi with 2.
