2001 in Film

2001 brought fantasy films into their own. The genre has pretty much single-handedly kept the movie industry afloat through the entire decade. But it also was simply a great year for movies. After Crouching Tiger’s success the previous year, foreign films saw a taste of mainstream popularity… or nearly did. Bill Paxton pulled off a unique and compelling twist on the supernatural thriller in Frailty, but perhaps the most memorable moment in theaters for me was Hannibal. Rather than being the edge-of-your-seat thrill that its predecessor was, it induced out-loud laughing. A case of horrible not horrorific.
