List: Top 10 Movies of 2005

List: Top 10 Movies of 2005

This week on Episode 340 of the InSession Film Podcast, we continued our year-by-year retrospective series by taking a look at 2005, a top heavy year that offered up an interesting variety of films. It may not be the strongest film we’ve covered so far with these retrospectives, but it’s top films were still quite great. It was a phenomenal year for auteur filmmakers especially. The summer tentpole films and awards season was certainly up and down, but it was a year that still had plenty to offer overall. In the end, we do love our Top 10 picks and had a ball talking about our Top 5 on the show this week. That said, what would be your Top 10?
