2008 Films

As part of the effort to select the best films of the 2000s, I’m thinking of posting separate threads for each year in the decade. Whatever we choose as films of the decade should also be one of, if not the, best film of the year of its release. These threads hopefully will help with that. We can also discuss the best, worst, underrated, etc.

Here is the list of V-I reviews of 2008 films.
