2001 statistics!

In 2001 I moved to New York City for a year, but my overall movie watching declined in terms of sheer numbers. I lived in Queens, in the Greek neighborhood of Astoria. I really loved living in Astoria. I guess I was way too busy doing other things to see a ton of movies--there were lots of concerts and the N train ride into Manhattan to grapple with when I wanted to go see something. I rarely rented movies or watched any via cable either. Pretty much all of these were seen in theatres from what I can remember.

In my notes at the back of Kinetoscope 2001 I made a top ten for the year. A few of these I'm surprised to see on here looking at it ten years later. It went something like this:

1/ In the Bedroom [usa]
2/ Mulholland Drive [usa]
3/ In the Mood for Love [hong kong]
4/ Amelie [france]
5/ Eureka [japan]
6/ The Others [spain]
7/ Together [sweden]
8/ Moulin Rouge! [usa]
9/ Memento [usa]
10/ Happy Accidents [usa]
