Of the last decade, 2007 is hands down my favorite year of film. I have never put together a “Top 10” list so quickly as I have with this one. Right away, I knew exactly what films were going to be in my top five. The only problem I had was deciding on the actual ranking of each film. For instance, the number one and two films on this list are such drastically different movies. Because of this, I had to tap into my current mood to decide which one deserves the top spot.
In all, it’s a very diverse list of films. If I had to choose a “Top 10” list and all its contents to take on desert island, this would be my go to list. Represented here is almost every major genre of film. Though, even the lack of formulaic genres such as horror and fantasy are present in one way or another.
Notable Mentions: Control and 3:10 to Yuma.
