Just to clarify, I am counting anything not made as a US blockbuster as indie for the purposes of this exercise.
1) Only Lovers Left Alive
|Tom Hiddleston, vampires and existential crisis - what more do you need?|
|2) Lost in Translation||A film that had a huge impact on me the first time I saw it - and still does.|
|3) Unrelated||An amazing film from Joanna Hogg with stellar acting from the cast.|
|4) Nymphomaniac||Lars von Trier at his best in a thought-provoking piece on sex and sexuality.|
|5) Donnie Darko||Another film that really spoke to me when I first saw it as I turned twenty.|
|6) Pans Labyrinth||Beautiful, enchanting and creepy. This is del Toro at his absolute best.|
|7) Open Hearts||A perfect performance from Mads Mikkelsen and a deep, heartfelt film.|
|8) Amelie||The sweet film that gave the Hollywood rom-com formula a European twist.|
|9) The Piano Teacher||A wonderful adaptation of the book with an amazing performance from Huppert.|
|10) Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind||Quirky and fun, yet also full of deeper ponderings. I never grow tired of this one.|
Once again, this was harder than I thought it would be. I'd chosen this one next as I thought it would be easy, but I was wrong. There are so many others I couldn't include and, like last week, if you asked me this again next month, some of the selection could be different.
