1. Yi Yi
2. Crimson Gold
3. Oasis
4. Pan's Labyrinth
5. Far From Heaven


Nice list. I liked that it's different from most. I've seen all but Oasis which I always meant to see, but never got around to it. It was in theaters for like 30 seconds. I really liked Yi Yi, but I don't remember much about it. I am inspired to give it another look now. Crimson Gold is a great choice. Jaffer Panahi is one of the best living directors of world cinema. White Baloon and The Circle are brilliant as well. Offside was only at Music Box for a week. I should know better, and see these things on opening day.
Well, that's just like your. . . opinion, man.
