(prologue) As we can begin to hear the death rattle of the oughts, we in the third row decided to start on this continuing series throughout 2009 that will look back at our favorite films of each of the past ten years (2000-2009). This will ultimately culminate in a “ten best/favorites of the oughts” piece sometime in early 2010.
The year 2002 was quite the year for cinema and quite the discussion in the “back room” about which five films to go with. A couple of ties spurred on quite the fight; especially for that number five position. At any rate we whittled down the impressive list of quality titles to come up with our five favorite films of 2002. Enjoy.
