Why do a ten-best list? Well, they turn out to be habit-forming, as it happens. I did one last year, and it proved to be fun. So this year I did another one, and it was fun too. This is it. (Trumpet flourishes, alarms and ex, cursions) Oh yes, before we begin I should mention that the list is not restricted to films released this year — just to the films I’ve seen this year for the first time.
