Roger Ebert lists his favorite films of the year. I especially like this sentiment:
Look at my 20 titles, and you tell me which 10 you would cut. Nor can I select one to stand above the others, or decide which should be No. 7 and which No. 8. I can't evaluate films that way. Nobody can, although we all pretend to. A "best films" list, certainly. But of exactly 10, in marching order?
And this about Synecdoche, NY:
…a film that should never be seen unless you’ve already seen it at least once.
