Richard, what's your own top 10?

O what I saw this year (old and new) I especially liked:

Emergency Call - A Murder Mystery (new documentary from Finland).
Donnie Darko (evergreen).
Shame (new to me).
Kika (surprisingly good older Almodovar film).
The Grand Budapest Hotel.
Cabiria (Italy, 1914).
Why be good (delicious silent comedy).
My darling Clementine (seen at Cinema Ritrovato in Bologna).
