2007: Richard Suchenski

Pitcher of Colored Light
Conditions: I restricted myself exclusively to films - narrative, avant-garde or documentary, distributed or otherwise - that were first premiered theatrically somewhere in the world in 2007. For that reason, I excluded exceptional films, like Colossal Youth and Honor de Cavalleria, that had their North American premieres in 2007 but played elsewhere in 2006.

1. Flight of the Red Balloon (Hou Hsiao-hsien)
2. The Duchess of Langeais (Jacques Rivette)
3. Pitcher of Colored Light (Robert Beavers)
4. Paranoid Park (Gus Van Sant)
5. Alexandra (Aleksandr Sokurov)
6. The Man from London (Béla Tarr)
7. At Sea (Peter Hutton)
8. Zodiac (David Fincher)
9. In the City of Sylvia (José Luis Guerín)
10. Terror’s Advocate(Barbet Schroeder)

Please also note that I have not yet (as of 12/30/07) had the chance to see There Will Be Blood.

Richard is a PhD candidate in film studies and the history of art at Yale University.
