BEST IN CINEMA 2000

1. The Virgin Suicides: If this glorious and diaphanous film adaptation of Jeffrey Eugenides novel means that Sofia Coppola will be spending more time behind the camera than in front of it, I'm all for it.

2. Wonder Boys: Michael Douglas can act!!

3. Chuck & Buck: Lupe Ontiveros deserves a best supporting actress nod.

4. (tie) Dancer In The Dark and Requiem For A Dream: Dark dreams make great movies.

5. Traffic: The first of Steven Soderbergh's two major accomplishments this year.

6. (tie) Erin Brockovich and Nurse Betty: Julia Roberts can act!! and Neil LaBute's dark sense of humor gets lighter.

7. The Eyes Of Tammy Faye: With this movie and 101 Rent Boys, Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey are currently the greatest living documentary filmmakers.

8. High Fidelity: The best music movie of the year.

9. You Can Count On Me: With her lead performance in this movie and her evil supporting performance in The House Of Mirth, Laura Linney has arrived.

10. Unbreakable: Better than The Sixth Sense.

11. The House Of Mirth: Gillian Anderson can act!!

12. The Life & Times of Hank Greenberg: I hate baseball and I loved this movie. So did my grandfather.
