1 My Winnipeg (Guy Maddin)
2 Silent Light (Carlos Reygadas)
3 We Own the Night (James Gray)
4 Paranoid Park (Gus Van Sant)
5 Expired (Cecilia Miniucchi)
6 In the City of Sylvia (José Luis Guerín)
7 Boarding Gate (Olivier Assayas)
8 Zodiac (David Fincher)
9 Youth Without Youth (Francis Ford Coppola)
10 No Country for Old Men (Joel & Ethan Coen)

This is (rather arbitrarily) going by IMDb dates

I had 4, 3, 2; The Paper Will Be Blue and California Dreamin' all in my Top 10. I think Juno and Sicko were the only American films on my list.
You spurred me to revise my 2007 post in this thread, based on the list in my computer.

4, 3, 2 barely missed my top ten, but would have made it in other years along with some other films.

Good point below, Domino. I might revisit and revise that list eventually and there might be more room for it there, who knows
