Now that the Oscars are done, I want to bring last year’s movie-watching towards an end with links to some of my favorite critics’ Best-of-2008 lists.
The Village Voice’s 2008 critic’s film poll is a good source for some of last year’s films that didn’t get wide distribution.
A.O. Scott’s year-end list is notable for its focus on upbeat films, of which there were many last year, though that might not be obvious by those that won awards.
Richard Roeper went beyond a simple Top Ten to Best, Worst and specific categories.
Roger Ebert’s has a similarly long list.
Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune (like Roeper’s, his list was only available reprinted elsewhere) did a nice, pithy list of big and small, movie and documentary.
