Ten Favourite Films of 2003

Aleksandr Sokurov's "Russian Ark"

Here’s another unit from In Review Online’s Yearbook project: my pick for the 10 outstanding movies of 2003, which was a very good year indeed. I had a hard time narrowing things down to this handful of titles. Films are listed in alphabetical order, and ‘year’ is determined over at InRO by a movie’s first US release, limited or wide (not festivals or exclusive screenings).

28 Days Later…, directed by Danny Boyle (UK)

The Company, directed by Robert Altman (US)

demonlover, directed by Olivier Assayas (France)

Flowers of Evil, directed by Claude Chabrol (France)

Hotel, directed by Mike Figgis (UK)

Lost in Translation, directed by Sofia Coppola (US)

Millennium Mambo, directed by Hou Hsiao-hsien (Taiwan)

Russian Ark, directed by Aleksandr Sokurov (Russia)

Ten, directed by Abbas Kiarostami (Iran)

Unknown Pleasures, directed by Jia Zhang-ke (China)
