NYT's 25 Best Films of the 21st Century So Far

New York Times - "The 25Best Filmsof the21st Century So Far"
By Manohla Dargis and A.O. Scott

1. There Will Be Blood (Paul Thomas Anderson)

"The film offers a profound and deeply unsettling vision of the country, but it’s also a testament to one of this nation’s sublime achievements: the movies. The story creeps alive in 1898 with Plainview digging in a hole like a primordial creature, a sequence that invokes the dawn-of-man opener in “2001: A Space Odyssey.” A brilliant two and a half hours later, “There Will Be Blood” closes around 1927 by making good on its ominous title (it’s a gusher!) and nodding at “Citizen Kane,” a masterwork that ushered in a new American cinematic age."

4. A Touch of Sin
