Wow...2007 has been a great year at the movies!
This is the year when personal vision triumphed over big production films. Smaller, grittier movies (written and directed by a person/persons with creative vision) highlighted the awards season. Films such as "Into the Wild," or "There Will Be Blood" or "No Country for Old Men" were all written and directed by one entity (Sean Penn, Paul Thomas Anderson, Coen Brothers).
I'M LOVING THIS!
So what films made my list?
