: Kyle Smith's Top 10 has some surprising titles on it.

Just to clarify: that's Smith's top ten ARTHOUSE list. The ten-best list coming out this weekend will stick to mainstream films.

And now, here it is:

Last year my Top 10 list mainly consisted of un-heralded indies. This year I give up: I liked “Captain America” and “The Tree of Life,” but I can’t put them on the same list. So my top mainstream movies are here. I’ll post my favorite art-house pictures on The Post’s movies blog.

And then he proceeds to give the #1 spot to ... The Artist. That's a "mainstream" movie? Huh.

It just occurred to me... I haven't seen Higher Ground getting any award attention. That surprises me. It seemed to make a big splash among critics when it landed.

Best Foreign Language Film
“Certified Copy”

I haven't seen the film yet -- the local library's DVD copy is still sitting on a shelf on the other side of the room as I type this -- but, FWIW, when Alejandro Adams tweeted that "Kiarostami's son Ahmad, a 6-year resident of San Francisco, wrote a note to the SFFCC to thank them for honoring Certified Copy yesterday", Mike D'Angelo replied:

Did he add "though the film is 90% in English, & the category specifically says foreign-language, so we're a bit confused"?

For whatever that's worth.

I'm not just saying this because they're the closest critical voting body to my location, but the Toronto critics pretty much nailed it with their picks from what I can tell.

A great, great list. Wow ... I never thought I'd be in such agreement with Stephen Holden!

My only deviations would be Margin Call, which has some good performances but which threw me by dumping its two main characters for two OTHER characters somewhere around the halfway (?) point (maybe later?). Although the two later characters are more interesting.

I haven't seen the AIDS doc but think I might have a screener. I'll check.
