A note on my ``10 best'' of 2002

The best film of the year in my view was 25th Hour, with Lantana and The Fast Runner perhaps tied for second place. Other films in my best-of-the-year list are Dogtown and Z-Boys, Talk to Her (Hable Con Ella), About a Boy, Monsoon Wedding, Mostly Martha, Italian for Beginners, Lovely and Amazing, Thirteen Conversations About One Thing, Lord of the Rings — The Two Towers, and Made-up.
