Top 10 Fantastic Fest 2010 Films


10. Agnosia

9. Never Let Me Go

8. The Housemaid (2010)

7. Red, White and Blue - At first I was really annoyed with the direction the narrative was going, but when everything comes together and it becomes everyone's motivations become clear, I really appreciated it. It's like no other screenplay that I've seen.

6. Cold Fish

5. Summer Wars

4. Golden Slumber - Extrememly well written, the way all the story threads come together in the last act is better than the greatest episode of Seinfeld ever.

3. 13 Assassins

2. Bedevilled

1. The Man From Nowhere - Most bad-ass film of the festival. I know this main character supposedly used to be some sort of pop star, but that whole history has been erased with this role.
