Movie of the Year
Brent Green’s live-action animated Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then is, simply put, the most audacious, visually powerful movie of the year.
Civilization and Other Chimeras, directed by South African filmmaker Aryan Kaganof, is the Underground Film Journals 2009 Movie of the Year.
Nothing else this year could compare to the sheer anarchic joy of Altamont Now by Joshua von Brown, a relentlessly punk rockin’ good time.
Mike Z’s documentary profile of Walt Gollender, Wanted: New Talent!, is the most simply shot film of the year and simply the best movie of the year.
The documentary Waiting for NESARA by Zeb Haradon is my Movie of the Year because I loved the oddball cult that believes George W. Bush is an alien lizard.
Giuseppe Andrews’ trailer park love story In Our Garden is my Movie of the Year for it’s jaw-droppingly obscene language coming out of a sweet old lady.
