Margrit's 2005 top eleven (or so) lists

Films
11) Star Wars Episode # Whatever ( OK OK I KNOW! Bilious script, horrid acting--except Ewan MacGregor and Yoda--but it's Star Wars' intro/finale.)
10) King Kong (Too many ripe-for-video-gameland dinosaurs and creepy-crawly exoskeletoned-giant-crab-cockroaches --but, strangely compelling & almost as sad as Brokeback in the impossible love aspect. And it's a heartfelt homage to the original Kong.)
9) Crash (Now, that's some acting)
8) Apres Vous (it's French--love it)
7) Walk the Line (yeee-haw, honey)
6) The Telling Takes me Home (great documentary by Heather Carawan click here to own it!
5) 40 Year Old Virgin (I am not kidding!!)
4 ) Fingersmith (BBC Production--we own it!!!!!!)
3) Walk on Water (rent it!)
2) Constant Gardener ( we should all own it)
1) Brokeback Mountain (simply the best)

TV ...well I don't watch much TV but my faves are these:
