I really love this line-up.  Not that I so much agree with everything, that's absolutely besides the point-- but for the most part, this is a totally unabashed best-of list with little intention of having any influence over Oscar or media baiting, but rather a personalized collection of a group of people's best of movies of the year.  Texas did something right.
