best of the decade: the movies (#100-#91)

Thanks to a pretty stellar crop of flicks over the past 10 years, I was able to compile this list of my personal favorites from 2000 to 2009. They are, of course, highly subjective, jam-packed with emotional and sentimental favorites, and missing a few that I've somehow managed to miss.
