The Best Movies of 2010


Last updated - March 28, 2014.

This list contains all of the films that I rated 7 and higher of the year 2010.

In the order I saw them:

Babies
Documentary
My Rating - 7/10

IMDB

I was hoping to see more countries but other than that it's quite refreshing.


Udaan
Drama
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

It's about a father-son releationship but not a pleasent one. This one will stay with you for some time. The main character reminds me of one of my old schoolmates, just a random and unrelated note from me.


Poetry
Drama
My Rating - 10/10

IMDB

In my top 10 of 2010.


Illégal
Drama
My Rating - 7/10

IMDB

This made me aware of some things even if it might not be all true, the story is still somewhat engaging.


Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives
Comedy/Drama/Fantasy
My Rating - 9/10

IMDB

In my top 10 of 2010.


One Day
Drama/Romance/Sci-Fi
My Rating - 7/10

IMDB

A dreamy and delightful love story, words can't describe it. It has to be seen.


Certified Copy
Drama
My Rating - 9/10

IMDB

At first I didn't even care to see this one because I thought that it's just another romantic drama but I had no clue that it's directed by Abbas Kiarostami although I did know that Juliette Binoche won at Cannes for her performance. This is more of a dialogue driven film about two people but it's not as simple as that, I will not say anything more. It's all left open for your imagination, which is what made me love it. There's also lots of brilliant humor, delightful.


The Colors of the Mountain
Drama
My Rating - 7/10

IMDB

This film is heartbreaking and visually stunning. I wish I grew up surrounded by so much nature. The more I think about this film, the more I love it. The way the story is told through the eyes of the children makes it so innocent but unfortunately this is reality for a lot of people in different parts of the world.


Aftershock
Drama
My Rating - 7/10

IMDB

The word "touching" describes this film best. It all revolves around family themes, it's heartbreaking and could possibly move you to tears. The acting is absolutely brilliant by everyone, except for the Canadian husband, I would even call it bad but it's no big deal because you can only see him for a few seconds.


The Robber
Biography/Crime/Drama
My Rating - 9/10

IMDB

The second film of the year involving bank robbery. The first one is The Town, which is almost as bad as Ben Affleck's first film Gone Baby Gone. This one is based on the life of Johann Kastenberger, it would have been better if they made it closer to the real events that took place but it's still amazing.


How I Ended This Summer
Drama
My Rating - 10/10

IMDB

In my top 10 of 2010.


Honey
Drama
My Rating - 10/10

IMDB

In my top 10 of 2010.


I Wish I Knew
Documentary/History
My Rating - 7/10

IMDB

A unique documentary about Shanghai. Absorb it well, the stories told by each person are engaging and the shots of the city are beautiful and refreshing.


Tuesday, After Christmas
Drama/Romance
My Rating - 10/10

IMDB

In my top 10 of 2010.


Steam of Life
Documentary
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

A very humane documentary about men, emotions and more, it's a deep film. The music fits so well and gives it exactly the right tone and the scenes outside the saunas are absolutely stunning.


If I Want to Whistle, I Whistle
Drama
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

A realstic portrait of imprisonment, it grabbed me by the neck at the start of the film and didn't let go till the very end.


HaHaHa
Drama
My Rating - 10/10

IMDB

In my top 10 of 2010.


My Joy
Drama
My Rating - 10/10

IMDB

In my top 10 of 2010.


Love in a Puff
Comedy/Drama/Romance
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

Well, this was definitely unexpected, not just because it starts off as a horror film but I didn't expect it to be so appealing. It's very well written, especcially the dialogues, the chemistry between the two is perfect.


Submarino
Drama
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

This is not a happy story, it's devastating and depressing but it's a realistic and well-made film. It pulled me in from the very beginning.


When We Leave
Drama
My Rating - 7/10

IMDB

Some of the scenes in this film are painful to watch. I was cheering for the main character Umay the whole time. Amazing performance by the lead actress Sibel Kekilli and the little boy who plays her son also did a great job and actually reminds me of the little boy from Honey.


Heartbeats
Drama/Romance
My Rating - 9/10

IMDB

In my top 10 of 2010.


About Her Brother
Drama
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

Already a few minutes in the film I could tell that it has its own style, it touched me deeply.


Reindeerspotting
Documentary
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

Another great documentary of 2010, different than all the others. It should be shown in classes all around the world.


Waste Land
Documentary
My Rating - 7/10

IMDB

Insightful and inspring.


Finisterrae
Fantasy
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

Even more enigmatic than last years Lourdes, also unbelievably beautiful.


Bleak Night
Drama
My Rating - 10/10

IMDB

In my top 10 of 2010.


Oki's Movie
Comedy/Drama
My Rating - 9/10

IMDB

The 11th film by Hong Sang-Soo. Just what you would expect, I love the part where they ask the professor all of those questions about life.


Into Eternity
Documentary
My Rating - 7/10

IMDB

A documentary about nuclear waste and where its going to be stored in Finland in the future.


R
Drama
My Rating - 7/10

IMDB

The concept is not that much different from other prison films but some swift things occur throughout, quite enjoyable.


The Four Times
Drama
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

Truly beautiful and tragic.


Aurora
Drama
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

Another fantastic film by Cristi Puiu. I enjoyed The Death of Mr. Lazarescu more but it's not fair to compare them. When he makes a film, he really goes deep into the subject.


Morgen
Drama
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

The first film by Marian Crisan. It's quite beauitfully shot, especially the opening scene. Surely there have been countless films about boarder crossing in the last few years but this one stands out.


When Love Comes
Drama
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

A tender view on everyday struggles in family life.


The City Below
Drama
My Rating - 9/10

IMDB

That's the life over there for bankers, greed instead of cheese. It might be showing its own exaggerated version of a economic collapse.


Orly
Drama
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

I just recently watched Angela Schanelec's Afternoon and was blown away so now I'm trying to get my hands on her other work, Orly is one of those films. Quite different from Afternoon but nonetheless excellent. It all takes place in the Orly airport near Paris, which is where I went in the summer of 2011 so it's interesting because I was fimiliar with one or two locations of the film.


In the Shadows
Crime/Drama
My Rating - 9/10

IMDB

As far as crime films like this go I can't imagine it being any better, amazing atmosphere throughout the whole film.


Post Mortem
Drama
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

This film has a really gritty feel to it (not just color wise) and it fits very well, it brings the message accross as it's supposed to.


REC
Drama
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

This film is without a doubt special in one way or another.


Littlerock
Drama
My Rating - 7/10

IMDB

Cory Zacharia, whose character is also named Cory saved this film. Not that it's generally bad but I doubt that I would have enjoyed it without him, a very genuine guy.


Leap Year
Drama
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

Surprisingly this is the first film by Michael Rowe, not easy to digest but most definitely worth it.



Cold Weather
Comedy/Drama/Mystery
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

Quite funny and actually original. The part where Doug and Carlos were talking while loading the truck with ice reminded me a lot of a job I had, love the dialogues.


Young Girls in Black
Drama
My Rating - 7/10

IMDB

I've seen many similar films but it's still special in its own way.


The Hunter
Thriller
My Rating - 9/10

IMDB

In my top 10 of 2010.


Family Instinct
Documentary/Biography/Drama
My Rating - 8/10

IMDB

I see this film differently because I lived in Latvia most of my life and can relate to many of the drinking scenes and such because of the people I was surrounded by. There's not that many visually beautiful films like this from Latvia.

  21. When it comes to technology solutions for your business it is easy to get carried away with the latest-and-greatest gadgets and solutions. Everyone wants to have the latest shiny thing. In larger organizations, managing technology can become burdensome due to competing and duplicative technology requests. Left unfettered, the company technology platform can resemble a "spaghetti bowl" over time. Often is the case, new technology requests are submitted without any business case to support their investment. how to hack mobile legends
