The Blogger Who Came in from the Cold

My first piece in a few years for The House Next Door, the official blog of Slant, is up: my all-time ten-best movies list. To coincide with the release of Sight and Sound's every-ten-year poll -- Vertigo, you may have heard, finally toppled Citizen Kane -- the editors at Slant asked their writers (those not asked to submit an S&S ballot) to contribute their own top-10s. Compiling my own list was agonizing and fun, and I could submit a new top-10 today with seven or eight different titles.

In particular, I'm already regretting not including Local Hero.
