Kamâ€™s 10 Best â€™05 Films
However, I still part company from my colleagues in my staunch refusal to serve as a marketing arm of the film industry which would have us only mention movies currently in theaters. So, Iâ€™m strongly suggesting that after perusing my primary list based on Hollywood blockbusters, that you continue reading think about renting some of the equally-deserving lesser-knowns representative of other genres.
Over the past year, I literally screened hundreds of movies, the bulk of which were independently-produced artsy and foreign flicks that never made it into circulation beyond a few select theaters in New York, Los Angeles and a few other cities. This means that if I were to consider these indies in preparing my 10 Best List, it would primarily be comprised of pictures that you probably never heard of. Since I donâ€™t want to write an exclusive retrospective that only other film critics could relate to, Iâ€™ve decided to limit my Top 10 to big-budget productions. However, I still part company from my colleagues in my staunch refusal to serve as a marketing arm of the film industry which would have us only mention movies currently in theaters.

It was sexy to be against the war back then. He was probably in it to get laid.
