The Films of 2006

The is part of my continuing project to collect and publish all of my older film lists in one place. Check out the End-of-Year Lists menu at the top of the screen. There you can find links to all the lists I have published so far. I’ll continue adding more as I find them. Stay tuned!

Side note: You’ll notice some discrepancies between the Top 10 listed below and the separate reviewed Top 10 post. According to the file details on my computer, the reviews were written about 2 months later than this list. In retrospect, I’d have to agree more with the later list: nearly a decade later, I barely even remember The Science of Sleep.


After the Top 10, films are listed alphabetically using a 5-Star rating scale.
