HollywoodNews.com: Having recently passed the halfway point of 2010, I thought it would be an appropriate time to offer a list of the top 10 films of the year, thus far, based on a combination of my personal views and the general consensus of the critical community. As others have noted, it hasn’t been as strong a first-half as even last year, which wasn’t all that strong itself, so it’s probable that only one or two of these films will also appear on the Academy’s top 10 list (aka the list of the best picture nominees) shortly after the end of the year.
10. "Get Low" (7/30)
Picture 1 of 10
Aaron Schneider's quirky feature debut premiered last September at the Toronto International Film Festival (where I saw it), got picked up by Sony Pictures Classics while there, and will be unveiled to the world at the end of the month. It provides a rare but welcomed star-vehicle for the great Robert Duvall, who's now 79, and who plays a mysterious backwoods hermit who comes out of seclusion in order to plan -- with the assistance of Bill Murray -- a "living funeral" for himself. Lucas Black and Sissy Spacek also star.
