Shit I Liked

Not so much a definitive “top however many of the decade” thing as just a random list of shit I liked between 2000 and now, in no particular order.

Bookwise:

QUEENPIN Megan Abbott
THE DISTANCE Eddie Muller
BORN UNDER PUNCHES Martyn Waites
OUT Natsuo Kirino
RUN Douglas E. Winter
KISS HER GOODBYE Allan Guthrie
SHARP OBJECTS Gillian Flynn
… oh and every fucking word Ray Banks has ever written, but I have a real soft spot for DONKEY/SUCKER PUNCH, because it’s about my town.

Moviewise:

AMORES PERROS Alejandro González Iñárritu
RED ROAD Andrea Arnold
OLD BOY Chan-wook Park
NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN Coen Bros
ZODIAC David Fincher
IDIOCRACY Mike Judge (nominated in the documentary category, because it’s just too fucking true)

(ed to add) Oooh and JULIA Erick Zonca

(also ed to add) Fuck I completely forgot DOG BITE DOG Pou-Soi Cheang

(This adding on could go on forever, so I'd better stop now.)

I’m sure I’m forgetting zillions, but these were the first ones that popped into my head during the time it took me to type this.

How about you? What were your favorites?
