January movies

I saw lots of films in a theatre this month--trying to stay caught up on all the possible best of films and performances. I'll post my top ten for 2008 soon, along with thoughts on the Oscar nominations. The Wrestler will no doubt be making the top ten but Rachel Getting Married will not, completely over hyped that film is.
