The 25 Best Films of the 21st Century So Far

Anybody can make a list of this century's greatest films – making one that's a work of art in and of itself is far more challenging. The New York Times' peerless film critics Manohla Dargis and A.O. Scott put together a ranking of 25 terrific movies, combining their own commentary with insights from filmmakers and others. But special credit goes to The Times' design team, which has fashioned this list with beautiful moving images from each movie that capture their indelible magnificence. Wanna quibble with their picks? No problem, that's the idea. But in making a case for cinema's continued relevance in a fragmented cultural landscape, Dargis and Scott throw down a gauntlet that's inspiring and revelatory. (The New York Times)
