Best movie of 2004 was Dogville and I'd put The Brown Bunny at #4 on my list. The Village and Million Dollar Baby would be on there too.

I really haven't locked down my 2004 top ten.  It is subject to change.  I still haven't seen Finding Neverland or Vera Drake.

Ten years can make a difference.  When I saw Seven upon first release, I liked it, but I didn't love it.  Now it seems like a classic.   Stuff like Desperado and Get Shorty, which I loved on first viewing, doesn't seem as good now.
Music is your best entertainment value.

I really have no interest to go back and re-align my top ten, but one film I wish I did include was When Will I Be Loved. A very underrated film that not only is wonderfully made, but challenges conventional morality with a complex situation that falls on an entire array of questions one has to ask themselves about what is right. What I found myself answering after Neve Campbell's character takes the most drastic route is that I really never faulted her. Innocence was no characters' claim in the film though some of them suffered.

Agreed, though I think Campbell's performance was in some ways better than the movie

How? As limited as this analysis may paint the picture, the best part of the film is that it does stand on a bold question of morality in just a situation. The details around the film are for the situation. The film is its presentation. And I really cannot say I've seen such a question posed before.

Sometimes films come around that are barometers for society. They seem able to only be made for their times. When Will I Be Loved is not as obviously topical as Control Room or even the recent doc, The Aristocrats, but it feels as timely. The best part of this film is that the best judgement may come in years to see how relevant the idea of morality still is in this film. Or whether I would still even agree like I did my first viewing.

I'm sorry I have to be the one to break it to you, Ono, but... it wasn't even funny the first time.

I can't remember all the movies I saw in 2004, although it certainly was alot more than this year.   Eternal Sunshine and Kill Bill are the ones that really stick in my mind.
