I  spent much of 2010 bemoaning the sad state of Hollywood studio filmmaking. But looking over a roster of the year’s most worthwhile releases, it struck me that it might not have been such a bad year after all. If you’re simply looking at the number of good films released, then 2010 was certainly not one for the books — but if you focus on the quality of the very best releases, few as they may have been, things start to look a bit different.

Like 2009, last year offered some very refined diamonds in the rough. In fact, this may be the strongest Top 10 list I’ve compiled in my 11 years at the News-Sentinel — and there’s still a few promising titles I haven’t been able to catch yet (see Page 2). So let’s cast aside any lingering bitterness and unequivocally celebrate 10 absolutely superb films, many of which may have placed higher in a lesser year. All films on this list are both “arty” and accessible, in their own ways, making them perfect entertainment for cinephiles and casual viewers alike. The long and short of it: If you don’t like these picks, then you suck   at movies.
