Looking Back at 2008 with more lists…

The Village Voice/LA Weekly poll just went up on their respective websites. Here are the results of the compilations (courtesy of the Village Voice), with commentary by J. Hoberman. Individual lists are not posted as of yet, but the list of participants can be found here. This is the list I sent to them on Dec 15:

A Christmas Tale / Un Conte De Noel (France) dir: Arnaud Desplechin
The Edge Of Heaven (Germany) dir/scr: Fatih Akin
WALL•E dir: Andrew Stanton
Let The Right One In (Sweden) dir: Tomas Alfredson
Wendy And Lucy dir: Kelly Reichardt
The Fall dir: Tarsem Singh
The Secret Of The Grain (France) dir: Abdellatif Kechiche
The Dark Knight dir: Christopher Nolan
Flight Of The Red Balloon (France) dir: Hou Hsiao-hsien
My Blueberry Nights dir: Wong Kar Wai

I was also invited to participate in IndieWire’s poll, but the invitation got sent to an old E-mail address and I got it too late. The results  of the IndieWire poll are here.

I did, however, publish a list in the Seattle P-I here.
