Top Ten Indie Films of 2008

I like the mainstream as much as anyone, but this year was definitely a good read for independent films.

10. Adam Resurrected

I can’t call it a memorable film, but it wasn’t a bad film either.

9. Hamlet 2

It did show some promise, but in the end it will only be remembered for “Rock Me, Sexy Jesus”.

8. Real Time

An enjoyable Canadian comedy.

7. In Bruges

A wonderful little film that put the small town in Belgium on the map.

6. The Wackness

A decent coming of age story.

5. Synecdoche, New York

It made hardly any sense, but it was still compelling.

4. Happy-Go-Lucky

A great little British film.


Never has Jean-Claude Van Damme seemed so vulnerable.

2. Slumdog Millionaire

The film was almost magical.

1. Pontypool

Yes, the Canadian Zombie film was THAT good (too me anyway).

Tomorrow, I post my top ten films of 2008!
