Been thinking about this. Currently have four movies in mind, and they're all Ms:


mother!
Melancholia
The Master
Mad Max: Fury Road


Roughly in that order, I think. Each time I've watched mother! (three times) it's grown in my estimation. It's one of the most perfect films I've seen, and every single minute is an intense delight. Melancholia is so glorious though—a very close second.

Anyone have some thoughts on this decade?

No, I haven't. But I accept this assignment.

there's genuinely a worldwide reason to count it as a 10s film. as in even in france it was released 2010

just cheeked the release date on imdb, it was released on 17 June 2009 in brazil and then almost a year later in france. that's weird.

I guess it should replace something on my list as well then

If I could move the night I would
And I would turn the world around if I could
There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk
