The Unofficial Milk Plus Canon: 2000 - September 2003

Well our little poll is officially finished, and the votes have been tabulated. Thanks to everyone who has partcipated. Without further ado, here are the results of the Unofficial Milk Plus Canon: 2000 - September 2003:

10. It's a Three-Way Tie:
Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (d. Peter Jackson, 2002) - 14 points
The Royal Tenenbaums (d. Wes Anderson, 2001) - 14 points
The Way of the Gun (d. Christopher McQuarrie, 2000) - 14 points

9. Punch Drunk Love (d. Paul Thomas Anderson, 2002) - 15 points

8. All the Real Girls (d. David Gordon Green, 2003) - 16 points

7. It's a Two-Way Tie:
Dancer in the Dark (d. Lars Von Trier, 2000) - 17 points
You Can Count on Me (d. Kenneth Lonergan, 2000) - 17 points

6. Requiem for a Dream (d. Darren Aronofsky, 2000) - 21 points

5. Y Tu Mama Tambien (d. Alfonso Cauron, 2001) - 23 points

4. It's a Two-Way Tie:
Memento (d. Christopher Nolan, 2000) - 24 points
Mulholland Dr (d. David Lynch, 2001) - 24 points

3. 25th Hour (d. Spike Lee, 2002) - 25 points

2. It's a Two-Way Tie:
In the Mood For Love (d. Wong Kar-wai, 2001) - 26 points
O Brother, Where Art Thou? (d. Joel Coen, 2000) - 26 points

And with a very commanding league, the unofficial best film of this decade:

1. Yi Yi (d. Edward Yang, 2000) - 48 points

Though it skews towards higher profile, English-language films (which I think is more of a factor of availability versus quality, actually the next three highest point totals were for Code Unknown and Spirited Away with 13 points, and Songs from the Second Floor with 12 points), I think this is a very good "canon." Though I saw the ultimate victory of Yi Yi a long time ago (as well as the high placement of , I was kind of surprised by the insurgent choice of O Brother, Where Art Thou?. So what does everyone think about the "canon"? What does it say about the Milk Plus members and readers who voted, you know, besides having a kick ass taste in film? Also, if anyone wants to share their honorable mentions, go right ahead.

And if you missed out on the voting, feel free to share your own top ten list in this comments thread.
