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.

Yeah, I still haven't seen Offside either but love Panahi. Try to catch up with Oasis and Lee Chang-dong's other films (I was tempted to include Secret Sunshine here but limited myself to one film per director), I think they're more interesting than other more well-known Korean auteurs like Park Chan-Wook and Kim Ki-Duk (although I do like Park and would include Lady Vengeance on my 6-10 list). Yi Yi improved on second viewing for me.

One I forgot about: The World (Jia Zhang-ke, 2005) which I would rank just below Yi Yi.

Hey JStocka I love the Shenmue theme! One of my favorite games of all time!

Good to see some Three Iron love. That was my #4 movie of '05. It's so rare to see something that let's you just take it as it is. They never overexplain what's going on. Like There Will Be Blood and Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, its cinematagraphy suggests a spiritual presence. Just breathtaking!
Well, that's just like your. . . opinion, man.
