The Decade List: Awards (2000)

Here's what I've got so far:

Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger IV - dir. Lloyd Kaufman
Dancer in the Dark - dir. Lars von Trier
George Washington - dir. David Gordon Green
Gouttes d'eau sur pierres brûlantes [Water Drops on Burning Rocks] - dir. François Ozon
Presque rien [Come Undone / Almost Nothing] - dir. Sébastien Lifshitz
Sånger från andra våningen [Songs from the Second Floor] - dir. Roy Andersson
Sous le sable [Under the Sand] - dir. François Ozon

And, as I've stated many times before, I'm going to continue to revisit/watch/write about more films from the year 2000 throughout the year. The ones I'm working on now: Andrzej Żuławski's La fidélité, Wong Kar-wai's In the Mood for Love, Michael Haneke's Code Unknown [Code inconnu]. The ones I still have yet to see (which means they may, or may not, be written about in the future): Edward Yang's Yiyi, Im Kwon-taek's Chunhyang, Jia Zhang-ke's Platform, Terence Davies' House of Mirth, Olivier Assayas' Les destinées sentimentales, Volker Schlöndorff's Die Stille nach dem Schuß [The Legend of Rita] and Béla Tarr's Werckmeister harmóniák [Werckmeister Harmonies], among a few others.

Additionally, here is a run-down of the major award shows/festivals from the year (or at least the ones corresponding to the films released during that year). Keep in mind though that a number of the films below were "officially" released in 1999.

God bless that Travolta pic. You should rotate banners as I do. (Hint: That should be the first.)
