top of 2009

these are my favorite films of 2009 in order of greatness. i did not see every film that came out this year. this is not every film that came out in 2009 that i saw, just the ones that were good or interesting enough to merit recommendation. there is no numerical limit on my yearly lists (top 10 etc.). sometimes i go back and add films from a year into that list, sometimes i don't.
