That Ain't No Top Ten!

Roger Ebert has announced a list of The Best Films of 2008 and I have to give him credit for bucking the system and not doing a traditional top ten countdown style list. Rock on, the more films to celebrate the better! Overall his list includes 26 films, starting with an alphabetical list of top 20, a special jury prize and 5 documentaries of "equal first place". Here are the lucky films:

Very cool that he is doing his own thing and why not? I love that he included My Winnipeg, totally loving the Can con.
