My Top 20 "Discoveries" of 2010

So what the hell is this? Well, for about every two or three films I watch I try to see an older one that I've always wanted to see. That was the reason for my Asian Directors Marathon and I have another cool Marathon coming up next year. So "discoveries" are simply films from before 2010 that I watched for the first time this year that I came to really, strongly appreciate. Some will be added to my Top 100, while others are already there and that is already being changed around. Check it out...

1. Magnolia (1999, Paul Thomas Anderson)
2. The Lives of Others (2006, Florian Henckel Von Donnersmarck)
3. Kiss of the Spider Woman (1985, Hector Babenco)
4. Wall-E (2008, Andrew Stanton)
5. Heat (1995, Michael Mann)
6. Badlands (1973, Terrence Malick)
