List: Top 10 Movies of 2007
This week on Episode 236 of the InSession Film Podcast, we continued our year-by-year retrospective series by taking a look at 2007, one of the best years in the modern era for film. In fact, one could argue (and we did on the show) that 2007 is the deepest year in terms of quality that we’ve seen this century so far. From There Will Be Blood to No Country to Old Men to Zodiac and beyond, it was quite the year for movies. And given that it was such a robust year, narrowing down that vast amount of great films to a Top 10 – and arranging them into some sort of order – was impossibly difficult. In most years, the films in our 6-10 would easily find a spot in a Top 5 for us. As rewarding as this exercise was, the challenge of conjuring a list with these films was a bit cumbersome. However we were ultimately very satisfied with our selections and we hope you enjoy them as well.
NOTE: On #236 we only discussed our Top 5 movies of 2007, so be sure to listen to the show to hear us discuss why these particular films were the very best of that year. However, as you’ll see below, we have listed our full Top 20 lists from 2007.
