2. Avalon (2001)


Note : This is one of those unknown / underrated jewel. I think it is great movie. The visuals are amazing and the story is completely spellbinding. I just love it.

3. Donnie Darko (2001)


Note : I thought it was really fascinating. The directing and acting are really good but the story and writing were even the better. A very good movie.

4. Monster's Ball (2001)


Note : I think Marc Foster is a very interesting director and if I recall correcly, it is the first movie I have seen directed by him. A great and shocking story with a very good directing and some top-notch acting (maybe the only very good perfomance by Halle Berry?).

5. How I Killed My Father (2001)


Note : An intense movie which craftily combines thriller and drama. The directing and acting are very good. It has a deservedly high score here in Listal.

6. Ghost World (2001)


Note : After all those American Pie clones, we may have forgotten how it is to be in your late teens. Those movies may be entertaining (most aren't though) but they are most of time completely unrealistic. Ghost World is a wake up call and send you right back in the reality. I really loved it.

7. Bully (2001)


Note : I'm not a big fan of "Kids", Larry Clark's first movie, too stereotypical for me. But this one is a huge improvement. The directing and acting are great and the story is just very bleak and chilling.

8. Tape (2001)


Note : If you think that Ethan Hawke can't act, you should watch this picture. Easily, his best perfomance. The directing is very good aswell and the writing is just top notch.

People who added this item 53  Average listal rating (30 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating 7.4 
9. Time Out (2001)


Note : It is already the 2nd French movie based on this true story (the other one is 'L'adversaire'). What's amazing is that both movies are very good movie. 'L'adversaire' is even better but this is one very good aswell. Very good directing and acting.

10. The Believer (2001)


Note : Ryan Golsing's first great perfomance. He really carries the movie. The story is really fascinating too. A great watch.

Tape and Bully and Time Out are great finds.

Most of your top 10 I've never heard of (6 of them in fact). And while I liked Spirited Away, I didn't love it like most people seem to.

Hated Frailty though. I figured out the whole movie in the first 20 minutes.

Spirited Away is definetly Hayao Miyasaki's best work and the first Japanese anime to win and Oscar for Best Animated Feature.
